relaxed but quite boring at times

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
There are times when u get very busy. Easy going and friendly coworkers. But no work life balance. And for part-time, salary not worth it aft cpf cut. its like 650 for a 6hr/day and u work 5 days? But if u dont mind the pay, its a pretty relaxing environment but stock day is the most tiring day! And u learn so much about small animals and product knowledge to recommend for customers. And cleaning small animals cage might be not pleasant thing for some too. I was lucky i got placed into a store where the retail lead would sometimes treat us and shes very passionate about teaching us some knowledge. But too sad she sometimes wld complain about having less rest day.

Pros

friendly coworkers.

Cons

the break room is so small and there r barely any space. Long standing hours too

Fun workplace but have no work life balanced.

It's a fun place to work if you love animals and want to help other pet owners for things for their pets. But the management is so bad and the working hours is too long that you don have a work life balanced

Pros

Staff discount

Cons

Long hours

Horrible communication and management

Working at PLC itself was pretty alright despite long standing hours and needing to carry heavy stocks on stock days. The most frustrating part of working at PLC was the overall lack of communication. Firstly, I was not given my supervisor’s number. (I thought this should be a standard practice in case of an emergency). Secondly, there was a lack of communication between the HR and the working staff. (When I submitted my request to end my contract earlier to the HR, they did not inform my supervisor at all).Thirdly, lack of response. After my contract ended, I emailed the HR asking when would I receive the rest of my pay and it’s been 4 days with no reply.

Pros

Experience

Cons

No training provided

Fun place to work at if you love animals

basic retail duties, managers are nice and kind. Always get to play with animals. The hardest would be that some duties are quite dry but managers there do not stress and or overwork you so it is totally fine

Relaxed. Normal retail store work.

Best part about working in a retail store is the team you're working with. Worst part about the job is the nasty customers you have to deal with on a daily basis. Lots of weird and rude customers especially rich owners who own pets. Nasty bunch.

Part Time Sales Assistant

I was assigned to a very small store so I had to constantly deal with customer's complaints that the store was too cramped. Couldn't do much about it so I learnt how to just take criticism. Salary was ok, average to minimum wage. Not much benefits for part timers as compared to full timers. The work culture is very disciplined, they teach/train you how to be organized and to arrange the store neatly. and orderly.

long hours, low pay
