Wanna work here? A Primer on Successfully Applying to Work at JVS
Is our hospital administrator and has been with JVS since the start of our practice; since 1996. She was the first technician I ever hired. She’s got a TON of experience. She’s the second best animal handler in the county. (I am the best /cough) and she runs the clinic – which is good because I sure wouldn’t wanna do it. She lets me focus on the practice of Vet medicine. Heather leads our customer-satisfaction efforts. She is details-oriented, pet-and-office knowledgeable and experienced. She knows exactly what I will say before I even say it. I’m working on her to let me post a picture on here because as those of you who have met her are aware, she’s Hollywood beautiful.
Rebecca (Miss Rebecca) has been with us for years and is a longtime, part-timer. I ask her to work full time constantly, and she says ‘no’. One day maybe. She’s entirely sane, so kind, gentle and brings us all down to earth when she comes in. She is our ray of sunshine. You can probably expect to encounter Rebecca about once a week. We always look forward to it.
Right now (August 2019) we’re training new “regular” full time folks, Mark and Patience.
Mark is a polite, caring fellow who is the first employee I ever had that was taller than me. Which is special because I’m 6′ 2″ and Marks’ like 6′ 5″ – Nice thing is he can lift some pretty heavy dogs so my old back’s getting a break. He’s funny, and he’s picking it up pretty fast around here. HOWEVER he *is* in training so he might not know everything all at once. Patience, please.
Patience is newer than Mark and she’s picking it up fast. She’s efficient and polite, cares a lot about the animals and makes a great team member here at JVS. She tries really hard and there’s a lot to know, so please keep in mind she *is* in training so she might not know everything all at once. Patience, please. Ha ha ha ha ‘Patience’ lol pardon the pun.
MahSan has been here all summer and works here on and off whenever she can. She’s super cool – heading off to Med School as soon as she can get in. There’s lots of college involved. She’s polite, efficient, cares about the animals, works as fast as she can on behalf of the clients and pets, and knows a LOT about how to do the job. We love her. She’s going to be here on weekends and holidays as time permits.
Maddy is also a summer intern who has been here on and off (and most of the summer of 2019) and she’s on her way to Vet School when they let her in. She’s a brilliant student, as MahSan is, and shines. You’ve never met anyone so polite and helpful. Renews you faith in young people, like MahSan does. We’re lucky to have our bright interns. She’s going to be here on weekends and holidays as time permits.
