Now Hiring & Training: Pet-Passionate Retail Sales Associates

GUT-CHECK / SUMMARY: We're looking for 4 full-time employees with retail experience and a desire to develop a long-term career. You're a smart, high-energy, positive-minded pet lover. Maybe your skills have gone unnoticed at Petco or PFE, and you think you'd be a better fit at a smaller store more intensely focused on helping pets and their owners. Or maybe you're currently under-appreciated in a larger corporate retail environment and would like to have more of an impact on your store. We'll train you about the pet world and our role in it.  [Locations: Mill Valley, Greenbrae, San Rafael, Novato]
