Overall Reviews at Pets at Home

No care for animal welfare
I worked for the company for 3 years. I tried my hardest to make a difference, but in a big company it was impossible.
The animals are kept in tiny, cramped conditions on the shop floor but out back it’s 10 times worse and I dread to think where they are bred. Management and higher up DO NOT care about the welfare of the animals, you are forced to sell animals to live in tiny cages because they say they’re suitable. The animals are often sick and have life long conditions which are not treated. Rabbits are the worst... kept in tiny cages with a litter of 6 or more! A lot of the time they would fight and cause serious injuries to one another. You was not allowed to refuse a rabbit to live on its own and even if it was going to be used for breeding! I took rabbits home to syringe feed them to keep them alive as they came in so skinny and lifeless, I even had them die in my arms. I could write forever about how awful the place is. Animals are treated as items and so easily accessible. Awful company!

Animals to cuddle
Loads of fun working with the animals , very hard physical workload, advancement easily achieved, fun staff and great management in store, not. Enough staff though, so working more hours than I wanted most of the time,
ProsAnimals, staff discounts
ConsShort staffed, short breaks

Different stores are very different environments to work for, in general the company try's to do well for the employee but individual management and area managers make a huge impact on store culture.
Also location and store management teams hugely impact access to training and advancement.
ProsGood training available although hard to access in some regions.
ConsWorking hours - constantly needing to work overtime.

Good place 👍
I liked my post at pets because I could just do my job and nobody bothered me. There is plenty of over time available and in some cases the chance to progress 😊

Good place to learn
This was my first time working somewhere, so it was a good place to learn the ropes. It was a more relaxed environment, therefore it was a little easier to learn how to do things.
