Important Notes on this Opening:

These Animal Care Technician jobs are located at an Animal Site. Employees are required to shower in and out of the facility, and are provided clothing, shoes, undergarments, PPE, etc. each workday. Employees have personal lockers to place their items each morning. Employees cannot have cell phones on site and must leave in their cars. Lunches are provided daily for employees, as they are not allowed to bring anything inside the facility for sanitary reasons. Employees who work in this environment cannot have the following pets at home, due to the nature of the work environment: Beagles (K9 dogs), small rodents, hamsters, chinchillas, Guinee pigs, reptiles, lizards, snakes, etc. If they have considered "normal" house pets like dogs, cats or goldfish, that's okay. This is very individualized work. Although there are hundreds of people that work at this site, each task is more individualized within the employee's barrier as they care for the animals themselves, partaking in cleaning cages, feeding, and breeding responsibilities. No prior experience is necessary, however this person must have a strong desire to work with animals on a daily basis.
