“Spending time with the animals. Getting to bond with them inbetween or during tasks helps me get to know them, creating a short-term bond since they're not at the store forever. Also learning about the maintenance behind each species, getting to learn with my coworkers, and assist customers enlightens the environment I'm in. My bosses and coworkers are nice people, and support you for anything you need. Most importantly, I'm in an environment that's productive and task-driven to keep motivation up and boredom down.”
