Our Hiring Process
1. Each applicant is to fill out an online application and answer each question as honestly as he or she can.
If we feel you are a good fit for our company, then we will call you to schedule a phone interview. The purpose of this interview is to get to know you and to determine if we as a company and you as a potential employee share the same values and passions.
Is a Face To Face interview where we will go in more detail to what the position's main duties and responsibilities are. Also, it is in this interview where you will be able to ask us questions about the position you are interviewing for.
If after the face to face interview we are interested in having you join our team we will then set up a day where you will shadow with one of our dog walkers on some walks. This way you will be able to experience what a day in the life of a dog walker/pet sitter is.
You will be offered a conditional 30 day job offer in which we will be determining if we are a good fit for each other. During your first two weeks you will be training with the other walkers and pet sitters and going over our very important company manual with the manager. In addition all employees are required to go through a background check, sign our non compete and confidentiality agreement and agree to abide by all company policies in the Housebound Hounds Employee Manual.
Final Step: After 30 days.....
You become official! Housebound Hounds is a fun place to work. However, we are a serious business! Our client's safety is our number one priority and this includes their pets and their homes.
I personally can't think of a job that is more fun, that is more rewarding and is more fulfilling then working with happy pets that just love to see us walk through the front door.
Housebound Hounds is a DRAMA free zone! Those who thrive on drama will not thrive here. Equally important, we are a positive place to work. If your glass is half empty rather than half full then we will not be a good fit for you. We hire passionate positive people with a "can do" attitude.
