As a team member, you will be an independent contractor (I.C.), which means that you will perform work as a pet sitter on an as-needed basis but do not have the legal status of an employee. Therefore, no benefits are available (health insurance, overtime, unemployment insurance, workers comp, vacation time, etc.), and you will be responsible for your own gas expenses and tax payments.
