    Ich arbeite seit mehr als einem Jahr bei Pet Food Express (Teilzeit)

    Pros

    Make great friends with coworkers, customers and their pets. Good discount.

    Kontras

    Micromanaging managers, constantly talking about sales, treats sales associates like they are getting paid on commission, when they are only getting paid hourly. Unnecessary write ups. Favoritism in the workplace, when a manager doesn’t like you, they show it. No sale is ever good enough for managers, they always have something to add on to.

    Rat an das Management

    Care more about employees than sales. Stop pressuring managers and employees to sell certain items when it doesn’t fit the pets needs.

    Pros

    - You interact with dogs all day, and make tons of doggy best friends - Robust training program. You learn tons about pet nutrition, behavior, grooming, etc. - Amazing employee discount - Extremely passionate staff - The products they sell are very high quality and must meet a set of standards in order to be sold in the store. If a brand's standards aren't being consistently met, PFE will drop them. - This company...

    Kontras

    - You're supposed to focus your sale on certain brands. Even if those brands aren't best for the customer or their dog, you're supposed to still mention it and persuade the customer to "at least try it- we have a GREAT return policy." Sometimes it makes you feel like a sleazy salesperson. - Floor captaining = micromanaging that is highly encouraged on the sales floor. Managers keep their ear in your sales and make sure...

    Every store is different and unique. Embrace that!! Stop trying to force a uniform floor captain philosophy on the company. It makes everyone resent upper management and act completely differently when they are in the store. Trust your employees, because you have an incredible, passionate, and diverse team.

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei Pet Food Express gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Work with animals and some of the best products in the pet industry. Product training was fantastic when I initially came on board but was in the process of being reduced in quality and quantity when I left. This can be a really fantastic and fun job for entry level depending on the store you work at. I was lucky enough to be at a store with really great store leaders that truly cared about the job they did and supported...

    Kontras

    Upper management are out of touch with their employees and their market. Expectations from district leaders are unrealistic and they provide no actionable ways to improve those results, just threaten your future promotions if you don't meet goals. Pay is abysmal for anyone above entry level and district managers will lie through their teeth to get an experienced manager to take a position. I took a $7 an hour pay cut...

    Rat an das Management

    Take a closer look at how your district leaders manage day to day operations. I gurantee you'll find some waste to cut. Empower your store leaders, you have passionate employees that will rise to the occasion if you allow it. For the love of god, get rid of the cheap radios. You are not abercrombie and fitch; you're a pet store. You are alienating loyal customers and creating an unsafe work environment with these stupid...

    Pros

    Amazing place to learn and grow as both a professional and individual. Mark and Michael really care about people as well as giving back to the community. Awesome insurance for both humans and pets! Pet people are the best to work with. The company is growing and doing great things!

    Kontras

    If you don't like to receive feedback so you can grow then this is not the place for you. Your job here is what you make of it. We're given the ability to really own our job and make an impact but you'll have to be ready to bring initiative and drive.

    Pros

    The Pets and their parents

    Kontras

    The company will lie to you, they will protect management who create a hostile work environment, your constantly in training. I watch staff who have been there for ten years have to still learn the same things they were taught ten years ago. And don’t even think about going to corporate if you’re being harassed or discriminated against because HR blames it on the employee. I’ve seen too much internal crap with this company...

    Rat an das Management

    Re train management in regards to creating a hostile work environment. Start listening to your employees when they reach out to HR, who never returns emails or calls, and get rid of that cult like Arbinger crap.

    Ehem. Mitarbeiter - Assistant Store Manager 
    Neutrale Prognose

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei Pet Food Express gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    The training is excellent and you really get to help people improve their pets' lives; great coworkers; good pay (for retail) and benefits

    Kontras

    I was sad to leave the company after only two years, as I'd hoped I'd found my home. In the short time I was with them, there were so many changes (including new sales techniques and foods to push, problematic installation of a new warehouse system, management restructuring, switching performance review tools) that it became difficult to keep up. There is a great deal of favoritism (and sometimes evident dislike)...

    Rat an das Management

    Michael and Mark: JFFD is dragging you down; focus on the best food for the individual pet. Corporate: Hire more people from the stores so you're not operating in a void Middle Management: Favoritism (and its reverse) are morale killers for those who truly work for the good of the team.

    Ehem. Mitarbeiter - Lead 

    Ich habe bei Pet Food Express gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Working with animals Some stores are fast paced most are not

    Kontras

    You have to learn so much. Yes it’s great learning about new products in the store but there was very little time to get it done

    Rat an das Management

    Pay more to the top 5 stores.
