We’re hiring a Pack Leader!
About you, the candidate:
Our ideal candidate will be similar to our Pack Members but with the drive, work-ethic, dedication, and level headedness of a fantastic leader. You describe yourself as a self-starter and independent worker. You are so organized that you joke about how many planners you have.
Our ideal candidate is incredibly passionate about helping customers solve problems and improving the well-being of their dogs and cats. Candidates must be able to provide exceptional, courteous service no matter what and be comfortable dealing with people (and pets!) of different temperaments and personalities. Pack Leaders should be even-tempered, detail-oriented, dependable, and efficient. Finally, we are seeking a loyal candidate that has the desire to grow with us long-term as we expand and mature.
Does this sound like you? Great, continue to learn more about the position.

The position will start at 20-25 hours a week. Starting pay is $13 per hour, with the opportunity to increase following the 90-day probationary period and assessment. This person must be available on most Saturdays and Mondays. We anticipate this position growing into a full-time, competitively salaried position by early 2019. If this does not interest you, please do not apply!
