Store Manager (Former Employee) – Taunton, Somerset – 9 October 2018
The company uses to be amazing to work but over the laat year too many changes trying to cut costs due to company struggling finding excuses to get rid of higher levells of managers to replace with people on lower salaries
Too many expectations expected for the amount of hours given
Retail (Current Employee) – Winnersh, Berkshire – 10 April 2018
Pets at home has been an amazing opportunity to learn more about animals and more about how the world actually works. I’m very grateful for the opportunity I was given, it is an amazing learning experience.
Amazing work place, everyone’s friendly and the animals are well cared for.

great place to work however they didn't properly listen to owners about animals. for example a man brought in a Siberian husky who had only seen grass "a week ago" said the dog was rescued from Dubai and it didn't like cages. so they put it in a cage for an hour...

Great company, interesting job, good pay and benefits. However, it is very fast paced and sometimes matching all the animals needs can be very diffcult whilst juggling lots of tasks on top of that to do as well. The store I worked at definitely needed more members of staff but isnt allowed more. When struggling with tasks, results in being told to 'make more time'. On the other hand, the company has many opportunities for you to progress and the colleagues make it fun. It is long hours but something I dont mind because of the fast pace environment, the time goes quickly.
-Animals -Opportunities to grow&progress -Good pay&benefits
-Need more staff -Rude customers -Not always enough time for animals.
Work Experience Student (Former Employee) – Trostre – 1 March 2018
I had a very fun week of work at Pets at Home. I met lots of friendly new people and learned lots of new skills. I thoroughly enjoyed my work experience there and hope that I will be able to return there one day for proper work.

pets at home was only my work experience when attended school, but it helped me gain the basic skills everyone needs to work, I it helped me be independent on terms of getting to work on time everyday, providing my own lunch etc. it helped me with my customer service skills face to face. it helped my listening skills and how to take instructions well.
