No Leash Needed Careers and Jobs

Rate of pay$14 - 14.5 per hour

Position Overview:  At No Leash Needed, we believe in the mission

of “Pet Lovers Delighting Pet Lovers” and we demonstrate this through being

Playful, Passionate, Personal and Professional. A successful candidate for this

position will be someone who not only embraces this culture, but is a team

player, self-motivated, takes direction well, has excellent communication

skills, and great attention to detail. This is a service-related industry and

you should not only be skilled at customer service, but passionate about

helping people. As a Pet Host, you are the first impression for our site. The

principal duties are to handle check-in for arrival clients, handle check-out

for departing clients, make follow-up reservations for existing clients, sell

activity packages and daycare on reservations made, greet all guests, clients,

and vendors, and handle any general inquiries about the business. 


A Day in the Life: You come to work daily with

a smile on your face and are excited to help serve our pet parents and their

furry friends. You’ll be in our branded gear and help run our lobby by greeting

everyone as they come in and solving whatever their need is -- check in, check

out, answering questions, booking reservations and tailoring our service

offerings to their needs. Your ultimate goal is to find out how we can best

serve the pet parent and provide them solutions. You will use one of your 15

hands to answer phones, take a dog to their destination for the day, hand out

some treats or run some credit cards. You will not only communicate with the

dog(s), but also interact with mom and dad. You will document what you are

seeing and be ready to share with your manager and the pet parent. And let’s

not forget -- you’re probably going to scoop some poop, clean up some pee, go

home with some fur on you and get lots of sloppy kisses!
