Describe your thoughts regarding dog discipline:
There are 120 dogs in daycare today.
One of your team members didn't show up for work today and so you're in charge of a pack that's larger than normal. It's getting a bit stressful and the dogs are unruly. What do you do to calm the pack down?
Talk about your experience working on a team. How do you think you will contribute to Dogtown's team?
A fellow team member is late to work nearly every day, 5 minutes here, 10 minutes there.
You, on the other hand, are always on time. How do you think your team member should be held accountable?
An employee comes to work smelling bad and wearing wrinkled clothes.
But he will be working in the back with the dogs so the customers won't notice. What are your thoughts?
