You MUST be honest, organized, detail oriented and able to follow instructions implicitly. You will be going to people's homes and taking care of their pets for 30 or 60 minute visits as well as staying in their home overnight. You will be an independent contractor and have the option of setting your own schedule (within the client's parameters) and accepting or rejecting any jobs. As an independent contractor, you are NOT an employee. You will be seeing many clients and we have many regular clients in this area who needs dogs visited between 7-9am, Noon, and 6:30 - 8:30pm. If you would be unable to do all 3 visits each day, please do not apply for this position. Our busiest times are weekends and holidays and you will be need to be available for those.
The perfect candidate for this job is someone who is retired, semi-retired or has a current part time job with flexible hours and DOES NOT need a steady paycheck or fast money. If you could use some "pin money" or supplemental income then this is perfect for you. If you are currently unemployed and/or looking for immediate work and immediate paycheck, this isn't for you. If you are looking for something to do while you are looking for a full time job this isn't for you either. Current and former pet sitters are welcome to apply but keep in mind that we will be training you under our system and you will need to learn to do things our way. When we offer a job to you, it will normally be 1-3 visits required per day for a number of days. So if there are certain days of the week that you consistently would not be able to do even 1 visit, then this won't work for you. If you have a flexible enough schedule that you normally would be able to work some visits into even your busiest day, then you would be a good candidate.
