  1. NOT if you end up working for Liz McMurtrie of Springhouse Animal Hospital. She's sexist, won't hire men, she's a boss that unprofessionally asks her employees to do her personal chores and favors outside of work that when she doesn't get what she wants makes all her employees miserable, won't give her employees appropriate tax info, has tantrums, and screws her employees out of overtime that she requires from them because she doesn't schedule appointments properly for well over a decade and is an absolute nut job.
