Mission: To provide peace of mind and convenience to pet owners nationwide by personally coordinating the most reliable, loving pet professionals right in the neighborhood.
I have been working at Fetch! Pet Care part-time (More than 3 years)
They find the jobs for me, provide the advertising ane infrastructure to handle payments, scheduling, send me a daily schedule, they have insurance against any mishaps that are related to the pet. If something goes wrong, you can call and get back up. All clients are within a reasonable drive. I have the option of declining a client for any reason. They will find another sitter.
When I first signed up the franchise in this area was new so it took a while to get a good customer base, but that is going to be how it is with any new franchise.
Advice to Management
It's what I expected, I can't think of any advice.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fetch! Pet Care (Seattle, WA) in November 2009.
I met with two hiring managers (who turned out to be the franchise co-owners) and was asked about my history with pets/animals along with general customer service questions. It lasted about 30 minutes and was rather informal. I wore a suit with a tie, but was overdressed; a polo shirt and khakis would have sufficed.
There was no negotiation, although accepted increased marketing responsibility did lead to a higher pay grade.
