How can we get a hold of your reference?
A customer mentions that she was watching the webcams and an employee was not paying attention to dogs in daycare. That employee was spending more time on his cell phone.
You need to talk to this employee. How would you approach this and what would you say?
It's the winter's first snow and it's super slow in daycare.
You need to cut a shift, but only one particular shift makes sense to cut, due to overlap issues. But the employee you need to cut is struggling with rent this month and begs you to stay. She offers to clean, or bathe employee dogs, anything to stay on the clock. You know that this employee could end up losing her home if you cut her hours, but if you let her stay, it could end up causing you to miss your dog:handler ratio goals this week. How would you handle this?
What are some of your personal and professional goals?
For example, are you in school, would like to be in school, are career focused, etc.?
A customer's dog refuses to go to the bathroom on synthetic grass and holds its bladder for a 36 hour boarding period, resulting in a bladder infection.
When she finally gets home she goes to the bathroom frantically. The owner is not happy. What would you say to this owner?
A new customer is interested in using Dogtown's Services but wants to learn more.
Tell the owner why he should pick Dogtown!
There are 120 dogs in daycare today.
All employees are seeming a little stressed and daily tasks have been running behind all day. You're in charge. What do you do/say?
You just worked 4 long days in a row and you have a day off! You are exhausted and are feeling a bit under the weather.
But you just got a call from one of your employees that he is not feeling good today. That employee has been off for 3 days straight and can't find anyone who isn't already working to work for him. Talk to him.
A handler is late to work nearly every day, 5 minutes here, 10 minutes there, which gets everyone else behind.
This handler rushes to work every morning after getting her child to daycare. Your other handlers are getting frustrated with her and they think you need to have a talk with her due to the stress it puts on everyone. How would you handle her and the other employees?
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?
Please attach resumes and/or other documents if you would like. (optional)
