You'll see SAGE Doctors taking time out to lecture and educate the public at REI stores on Wilderness First Aid for Pets. And of course, you'll see us having fun whether it's attending an A's game with referring veterinarians, or going to an employee outing to watch ice hockey with our dogs at the SAP Arena Pucks and Paws event!
SAGE also gives back to charitable causes. Take a peak at SAGE's philanthropic efforts - SAGE Giving Back.

Other SAGE perks include catered lunches, and contests and giveaways to receive fun items like water bottles and notebooks, iphone chargers, gift cards, and more!
I have been working at SAGE Veterinary Centers full-time (Less than a year)
Great place to work where people really care about their patients and each other. Salary increase over previous employer also made this an easier decision.
There were not any cons of the process other than the length. I appreciated the opportunity to get all of the information from sage and the position that I did throughout the process
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at SAGE Veterinary Centers (Concord, CA) in October 2013.
I found the opening via Linked In and submitted my resume via Linked In to their external recruiter. She responded via an email that asked me to respond to seven questions, only one of which was based on my personal history. They were the kind of questions one usually gets in a phone screening, so I was pleased that I could take the time to think about the questions before answering. I carefully wrote a reply, knowing I was presenting very strong answers to the questions. I sent my reply in on a Friday morning, super-psyched about the job. At the end of the day on Monday, when I didn't get so much as an email acknowledging that she had received my responses, I called her and left a message, asking if she received my response and that I was very interested in the position.
The recruiter called me the next day and we spent 45 minutes talking. She admited that the employer is insisting on a lengthy and onerous hiring process to make sure they find the right person, so she wanted to gauge my interest, as well as my status in my overall job search, since the process is going to take some time. She then described the most insane process I've ever heard of. She sends a standardized questionnaire created by Sage (unlike her initial questions). After I send in my response, appropriate candidates will have phone interviews with the HRD, COO, CFO, and one of the current Managers from one of the other locations. Some of the candidates will then be asked back for In-Person interviews. The two finalists will be given 3-5 Business Case Scenarios and will be asked to make a 60-75 minute PowerPoint Presentation! This will be followed by a dinner, background checks, and lastly, a possible offer.
