Industrial attachment for ITE College Central Retail Students

PLC is happy to announce an internship programme that was held in collaboration with ITE College Central, School of Business and Services . A total of 26 students interned under our retail, home delivery, and warehouse teams between July to November 2020 period, during which they were given an opportunity to obtain practical experience in a real-life retail working environment encompassing POS system, handling customer queries, delivery, stock handling, safe measures, etc. The interns received exciting learning breaks amid a fun and pleasant working space. For them, the fact that they were exposed to the pet industry also added a healthy dose of zest to the whole learning experience

Compliments from students

My internship experience at Pet Lovers Centre (PLC)was enriching and fulfilling. My colleagues are friendly and have taught me a lot, not only about store management but also on how to provide adequate care for animals. In PLC, learning is embraced through sharing and hands on approaches. In my stay with them, I learned about the different needs of animals (their diet, lifestyles and health conditions) and I can feel that people working in PLC are truly passionate about their work. I also had the opportunity to assist customers and I hope I helped to enhance their shopping experience, In conclusion, my learning journey at PLC has given me confidence to serve customers well and reinforced within me, personal values such as resilience, unity and discipline.

As this was my first experience working at a retail store that specialises in pets and pet-related product and services, I felt stressed initially. However, my fears were unfounded as my co-workerswere very friendly and patient. They guided me through the day-to-day tasks and operations. Their friendliness along with warm work environmentmade a difference in my learning as an intern, truly enriching. As I dealt with the pets as part of my work I gained knowledge in both retail as well as how to take care of the pets. I want to thank my colleagues and supervisors for their patience, kindness and willingness to guide and showing me the ropes. It was undoubtedly a great place for me to have my internship.

Internship in Pet Lovers Centre (PLC) was an enjoyable and enriching experience. I was surrounded by colleagues who were very friendly and patient. I find the days over at PLC well spent as I was exposed to many areas of work and I could learn about both front facing as well as backend operations. I looked forward to going to work during my internship and I truly enjoyed my time there.

Working at Pet Lovers Centre (PLC) is a unique and interesting experience as it is not the typical retail work environment that students are accustomed to. Due to the nature of PLC’s business, the work environment isfun and their employees are warm and friendly. I learnt a lot during my internship and it was exciting for me to be able to apply concepts on supply chain, retail and store operations and customer engagement at PLC. I am very fortunate to be able to do my internship with PLC and I will highly recommend friends who want to work in a positive and encouraging environment, to apply to PLC.
