Why Work at The Farm?

careersPet care services has become a growing industry as Americans more and more tend to see their pets as a member of the family, and expect them to be treated as such when they are away from home. According to the 2015-2016 APPA National Pet Owners survey, 54.4% of US households have a dog and 42.9% have a cat. These owners want the best for their pets, and The Farm at Natchez Trace has the highest reputation in Middle Tennessee for boarding, daycare, grooming and spa services, and obedience training.

The Farm at Natchez Trace offers employment opportunities for those who wish to apply their love of animals to a career, ranging from the artistic endeavors of pet grooming, to promoting the daily wellness and happiness of our canine and feline guests. The work environment is team-oriented, best suited for those with the ability to show initiative and attention to detail while fulfilling their desire to work with pets.

Employment Opportunities

 

 

Pet Groomer- FT 

The Salon at The Farm at Natchez Trace is growing, growing, GROWING!

Seeking an experienced FT groomer to add to our team. We are a low volume, high quality salon.  We take pride in excellent work, a safe and clean work space, and a drama-free environment. We use natural, specially selected products, and creating a positive experience for the pet is our main priority. Willingness to work within our product line and to adhere to The Farm dress code and quality of service guidelines is required. Don’t worry, we aren’t stuffy, but someone open to “The Farm way” is a must.

Work days may vary. Schedule can offer some flexibility on days. Pay for grooming work will be commission plus tips. TBD based on experience. W2 employee.

Must be proficient in all breeds, able to apply proper breed profiles and make a dog look its personal best. We do not cage dry, so must have excellent hand drying skills (Stand dryer and high quality HV driers available), hand scissoring and ability to execute haircuts of longer lengths required. Willingness and ability to work on large dogs required. Seeking a team player with a positive, laid back attitude, a gentle hand, and great customer service skills. You will interact with our high end clientele daily. Professional appearance and attitude is a must. Prefer a groomer with 3+ years’ experience, but for the right person, will make exception, or help continue training. Must have your own tools.

So if you’re a skilled groomer  looking for a positive environment, willing to become part of a family rather than just a number……if you’re no longer interested in meeting demanding quotas but are open to learning how to best serve our clients (who are the best clients in the world in my totally biased opinion), apply! We’re looking to start someone immediately. Drug Free/ Tobacco Free workplace. Must be able to pass a background and drug test.

Please send resume, brief explanation about your experience, and portfolio of images of your work if available.  Email to:  shari@thefarmatnatcheztrace.com
