Should I work at a pet store or at a restaurant?

So here's my situation. I'm 18 years and I'm going to be working my first job real soon. I wanted to work in a pet store because I'm going to be a veterinarian later in life and this would be good experience to put on my resume. However, m

Answers:

If you can manage to pay for the stuff your Mom will not pay for then work at the pet store do that. If you need the waitress money then take that one and try to get animal related experience later.

Neither. You should work as a groomer, or work in a vet's office (some pet stores may offer both opportunities - Petsmart/Banfield or daycare/grooming). If you plan to become a vet, you'll need med school like a regular doctor, then add the animal training on top of that. Getting training in a regular clinic would be more beneficial than a pet store. Another alternative might be a job at the SPCA or local animal shelters, local ZOO, Seaworld, county parks, or nature center to work with wildlife or animal conservation.

Pet stores are simply retail stores that sell animal stuff. It's not about taking care of the animals. It's about selling toys, food, cages, collars, leashes, and scratch poles, and ensuring the trucks are unloaded and stock is put on the shelves.

Its about selling animals that were probably brought up in inhumane living conditions, their mother kept perpetually pregnant and nursing until she can't breed any more from 10-15 continuous birth cycles. It's all about the money, not about the animals.

At a restaurant, you might learn something about cooking, food preparation, and how business works. However, usually it is simply a means to an end, and may also save you a few $$ by free meals or reduced cost meals while you're working.

You're unaware that working at a pet store is a RETAIL store, you're going to be unloading trucks, stocking shelves and ringing up customers at the register. Retail work. NOT playing with any animals in the store.

I don't know why so many kids think a pet store is some kind of a play area.

You will learn very little to nothing at the Pet Store. If you want a head start to being a VET you should apply at an animal hospital as an aide.

At the Restaurant, you can learn stuff to help you through your University, and likely get at least one free meal a day.
