Our ideal candidate is trustworthy and respectful of others’ property. They must enjoy meeting new people and their pets, and have previous courier/driver, customer-service, pet care, and/or (yard) cleaning/landscaping experience. They must have a positive attitude, be responsible, reliable, and flexible - willing to pitch in where needed to support The team and/or customer inquiries.
A valid class 5 or better driver's license (issued by the Province). Our insurance provider requires that all "Wranglers" using company vehicles have been licensed and insured within the Province in which the motor vehicle is located. Preference is given to those who have been driving for at least 9 years, and are able to provide a clean driver's abstract.
Be able to pass a criminal records check.
Good oral and written English communication skills.
The ability to follow directions and comply with all company procedures for carrying out "Round Up" services in a timely manner including: dog waste pick-up and removal, disinfecting and washing equipment, safe handling and pet waste disposal.
If working from home: A personal computer with MS Office capability and printer.
Technology requitements: A cellular phone with plan to use as your GPS or the ability to program and accurately follow GPS/route directions, ability to use your cell phone with email/texting functionality, and an ear bud or BlueTooth to be worn during shifts for hands free communication.
Common sense requirements: Gloves, CSA safety boots (or adequate footwear for the job), rain gear. We supply the cowboy hat and wearable headband style flashlight (if/when one is requited).
Must be able to meet the physical demands of "Turd Wrangling" and be ready and willing to work outdoors in all kinds of weather. Must be able to lift weights of up to 50 lbs. Our "Wranglers" need to be physically fit and able to sit, stand, walk/hike, climb and jump - a good throwing arm for frisbees and balls is always a bonus. A strong stomach (or smelling impairment) is mandatory to succeed at this career, and to be able to tolerate extensive driving hours (we need our Wranglers to have a high comfort level with both inner city and highway driving).
But most important of all - you must be friendly and possess a positive attitude, and you MUST LOVE dogs!

Working at Turd Wranglers means:
Cleaning up dog poop the Wrangler way. Wranglers are a road ambassador, responsible for driving a company vehicle in a professional and courteous manner. Wranglers must show care and concern for others' property and pets. If you have a positive work attitude, that's more important to us than a great education.
Experience: We will train you in the Turd Wrangler way. However, it's important that you like working outdoors in all kinds of weather and are able to handle the physical requirements of the job - lifting, raking, scooping, walking, sitting, interacting with canines etc.
Training: We will train you in the most efficient and complete methods of sanitary waste removal. We provide you with a daily customer route list along with the tools and cleaning products you'll need to do the job properly, including branded attire and a truck to make you a welcome sight in any neighbourhood.
