What’s the best thing about working here?
The best thing for me personally is the friendships you gain, not only with your colleagues but with your customers and their pets. The company are happy if you’re happy and I find that amazing.
Describe the culture
It is like one big family. We love each other and we push each other to do better. It is a very happy, friendly place to work.
What do you get up to on a typical day/week?
A typical day at Pets at Home is pretty laid back 90% of the time. We clean out our store and adoption pets, making sure they get a health check. Then it is on to the shop floor, we interact with customers and their pets whilst ensuring the store looks tidy.
Tell us about the learning and development?
You learn so much. I’m new to the company but I already feel so confident in what I’ve learnt and I feel very confident in progressing within the company, as they give you lots of tools you need to grow as a person and even up to a manager with Rising Stars.
What opportunities are there for career progression?
There are so many opportunities to progress. You’re given so much help when you’re ready for it. You get to do Rising Stars to become a manager, you can decide if you would like to go to The Groom Room, Vets4pets etc.
Tell us about the rewards and benefits?
Every day is as rewarding as the previous day, especially with the adoption centre in store. You really are credited for doing well and working hard. Bonuses are there to reward us.
How does Pets at Home give back to the community?
Pets at Home support a lot of charities in the surrounding areas. The support adoption part of our store is there to help people who are struggling with their pets. All of our stores are also very green, recycling is a must.
