Are there any Bather/Brushers, or Groomers in the comm?
I've been on the sales floor for six months(July 19) and am seriously tired of it. A very good friend of mine is the only person in grooming right now, so I put in for a transfer. Basically, I'd be whisked away to grooming school on Aug 12, before I'm even given a chance to train as a B/B. So, since it requires me to purchase all of my own supplies, to the tune of approximately $300.. I'm hoping it's a good move.
Would love to hear stories, tips, advice, whatever you can give me. I'm taking a pay cut, from $8.5/hr to $6.75/hr, but am hoping the commissions will make up for it. Also, if starting as a groomer rather than just a B/Ber, I should be able to make more money, right? I live in a snooty neighborhood with lots of poofy fluffy dogs, too. Woo. ..
