Step 5 of the PW Hiring Process

You are currently viewing Step 5 of the hiring process at Pet World Lawrence.

1. Learn more about our rehoming center
2. Apply online
3. Complete text interview
4. Complete phone interview
5. Complete observation and prescreen

If you make it through Step 4 you'll be invited to come in for some basic observation and prescreening during Step 5. If it seems like the life phase timing is right for you and we have the potential to develop a mutually beneficial working relationship, you will be invited to observe employees on your own time for a quick, behind the scenes perspective into employment at our rehoming center. At that time you'll also be able to prescreen by practicing a few things and discussing some of the more difficult parts of the job to rule out anything that might prevent your success.

STEP 5 IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT. Your prescreen visit is for you as much as us. It will involve 5-10 minutes in every section of our rehoming center and may only last an hour or so but we hope it's enough for you to make an informed decision about pursuing employment at PW. We also hope it's enough for the staff to feel like you'd be a great addition to the team. At the end of Step 5 we will either part ways with no hard feelings or your prescreeners will recommend a face to face interview with Sherry, one of the company owners.

There are no shortcuts to Step 6. You'll be working with the staff, not the owners, so this decision has been given to the staff as their responsibility. They decide whether or not to recommend you to Sherry and she never bypasses employees. If the staff doesn't recommend you after your prescreen, your app will not advance and she won't contact you again. If they do recommend you, chances are very good you will advance!
