Full Job Description
We are looking for a caring, detail oriented worker for our pet care associate position. We have great dogs and great clients, and we need team members that will give them the best possible experience as we grow our business. This is a part time position, 8-20 hours per week (2-5 shifts). Each shift is either a 4 hour opening (6:30 AM-10:30 AM) or closing shift (2:30 PM-6:30).
There is an opportunity for workers that excel in the pet care associate position to move into our pet care specialist position with increased pay and more hours.
This position is designed to be flexible and is often a good fit for college students or as a second job.
***Please do not apply for this position thinking that all we do is play with dogs all day. The pet care associate makes sure all of our guests are safe and having a fun time, but there is also a tremendous amount of cleaning involved as well. Previous pet care experience is a plus, but not a requirement, as we will provide training.
Ideal skills and characteristics for this position;
-Caring and Patient (We have a lot of high energy dogs that will jump and bark throughout the day).
-Quick Decision Making and Pays Attention to Details-The dogs are constantly interacting, so we must be quick to notice changes in their behavior and respond appropriately.
-Communication and Customer Service-We have to relay information about the dogs between each other and also to the pet owners on a daily basis.
-Core Strength and Endurance- We work with dogs of all sizes, and some are very large and you may get bumped, pushed or knocked over by the dogs on occasion.
-Balancing Changing Workload- There is a general pattern of work from day to day, but we often have unexpected add-ons. We also have very busy periods followed by calmer periods where side work then needs to be completed. The number of guests we have and type of reservations also changes from season to season. It’s a big advantage to be good with routines, but also comfortable adapting to sudden changes.
