The flexible Kennel Attendant job is great for someone who wants to work a short 5 to 6 hour shift on weekdays (Morning or Afternoon) and start a new career path with us in the pet industry. If you enjoy cleaning and you like dogs of all sizes, then we want to talk to you. There is certainly room for advancement in our business. The starting hourly wage is $13.00 for weekday shifts and $14.25 per hour for a Saturday or Sunday shift from 7:00am to 11:30am.

(Weekday hours begin at $13.00 per hour and grow with periodic raises based upon successful performance). This wage will grow with experience and satisfactory work. We also pay employees “time and a half” on holidays (if any hours are worked – which would be very limited). Additional working hours, MONTHLY BONUSES SUCH AS GIFT CARDS and merit raises are very possible in the future for outstanding performance, and working as a team player, while always showing up to work on-time as scheduled, completing work as directed with a positive attitude. Our staff is primarily female. We have a great working environment, afterall, you are around dogs, and they love you unconditionally. Weekday shifts are available in the morning or afternoon. Shift hours are usually 7:00am to 12:30pm, or 12:00pm to 6:00pm. (There are also some shorter 3 to 4 hour shifts)
Many of our employees have been with us for multiple years. Jagger’s is a great place to work if you like to clean, and if you enjoy being around dogs of all sizes and are able to think on your feet and problem solve in a TEAM environment. We are locally owned and operated. We treat our employees the way that we would want to be treated. We often surprise our staff with pizza, bakery items, etc. Our staff also receives a very nice year-end bonus at Christmas time. We are very easy to get along with, but we will not tolerate Drama. We expect people to show up on time to do their job, and function as a TEAM player, while leaving their Drama at home. People who repeatedly “call off” work on a short notice will also not last long in our environment.
When you are employed as a Kennel Attendant/Customer Service member at Jagger’s for a period of a year, you qualify to receive FREE DENTAL & VISION INSURANCE as well as PAID VACATION.
