Q: What is it like working as a Veterinary Technician at VCA Animal Hospital?
Veterinary Technician in San Bernardino:
"Overworked, underpaid, management expects more and more."
Pros: Coworkers are good people who are great at their jobs. Doctors are the best I have worked with.
Cons: Getting paid minimum wage for a loyal employee who is supposedly "praised" and has been working with the company for four years is unacceptable. Taking on massive amounts of responsibility for unfair compensation. Employees are strung along for raises that are well deserved. Benefits are expensive!! Management is never around. Too many expectations from already overworked and underpaid employees has meant high turn around rate.
