Our Hiring Process

Although we may not always be hiring, we always are accepting applications. Even if we don’t have an open position, we would be happy to receive your application and hold it for our next opening.

1- Online Application

The first step is letting us know who you are and where you are going! Our goal is to match qualified candidates with the right position at the right time. We want to make working at our facility a “game worth playing.” To us this means ensuring everyone on the team knows how to win, now and in the future.

2- Phone Interview

If we determine from your application that you are a qualified candidate, we will contact you for a phone interview. We’ll be looking to get to know you a little bit better, clarify any initial questions we have regarding your application, and answer any initial questions you have about us or the position.

3- Hiring Seminar

If we select you to move to step three of our process, you could be invited to an onsite hiring seminar where we walk through many of the aspects of the job, conduct working interviews, and get to know you. Professionalism, courtesy, timeliness are the basics. We also want to know how you handle clients, dogs, questions, and – yes – sometimes a bit of chaos.
