Pet Sitter Oppurrrrr-tunities
UPDATED 4/1/2017 - Sitting Comfortably Pet Care is currently contracting to fill the following positions: Private Boarders, Dog Walkers, Vacation Pet Sitters, and Overnight Pet Sitters. This is meant for part-time work to supplement your existing income. As such, please DO NOT apply if you are looking for this as a full-time wage; it can be a great supplemental income for the right person (e.g. stay at home mom, retiree, student, musician, pet lover, etc.).
We contract Pet Sitters who will be permanently assigned to each Client's home. This is to ensure the bond formed between the Pet Sitter and the Pet / Pet Sitter and the Client is not broken. As a result, please also DO NOT apply if you are looking for a seasonal position (e.g. only available during the summer only, over winter break, etc.). Due to the nature of the service we offer, we cannot contract seasonal workers.
Animal lovers are a MUST and pet care experience (e.g. Owning your own pet, dog walker, pet sitting experience (for dogs, cats, and other animals), volunteering in a shelter, working in a doggy daycare/kennel or vet, etc.) is preferred.
To Potential Pet Sitters and Pet Parents (because we know you are wondering as well...)
All Pet Sitters with our company are UNIQUELY and STRATEGICALLY contracted as Independent Contractors.
The typical contracting process for MOST pet care companies and/or pet sitting crowd-source review websites is very simple and often un-thorough, only requiring a basic profile to be set up by the pet sitter prior to connecting the pet owner with them and countless other sitters with similar profiles. Finding the RIGHT sitter can be stressful for the Client and nail biting for the sitter.
Sitting Comfortably's Contractor Evaluation is a VERY intense comprehensive 6 Step Process. that includes:
- Completion of extensive online profile
- Thorough review of Online Profile by all levels of Management
- Phone screening evaluation(s)
- Formal In-Person Panel Evaluation with a Sequential Approach - The Panel includes Management from all levels. Questions are asked to AVOID "yes" and "no" responses, but instead are asked to evaluate background, experience, hypothetical scenario decision making, ethical and integral mindset, etc.
- Certified local and national background check
- Required New Contractor Meeting to introduce them to Sitting Comfortably Pet Care
It's important to note,Sitting Comfortably's stance on contracting Pet Sitters does not mean multiple Sitters will be caring for your pets or be allowed in and out of your home. We carefully match up each Pet Parent with the Sitter we feel will best meet you and your pet's needs. Our Meet & Greet process is in place for you to meet the Sitter and go over expectations. Thereafter, anytime you schedule pet care, only that Sitter will be contacted. Cross Trained Sitters can also be assigned in the event your Primary Sitter is not available, has an emergency, etc., but the Match and Meet and Greet process will be completed prior to them servicing your home.
