Grooming Assistant/Pet Bather
East Rutherford, NJ, USA •Part-Time

About the Job

Looking for 2 professional Pet Bathers who have a genuine love and passion for animals and have strong work ethic and who would truly like to advance to a career in grooming. Holiday time is extremely busy so a quick learner is essential as we are fully booked into January.


Position entails safely bathing, drying, brushing, ear cleaning, nails and teeth brushing. Cleaning is required at day's end. Customer Service is also important as you will have a very prominent and visible position in my salon as well as answering phones and taking appointments and helping our self-service dog wash customers.

Both are Part-Time positions at this highly sought after Pet Spa in northern New Jersey which includes a morning shift and afternoon night shift. My current assistant is willing to stay on until new assistant is fully trained and comfortable with our dog clients.


Reliability is key in my salon that means being on time for your shift and having reliable transportation. A great percentage of our clientele are seniors, behaviorally challenged and special needs. With this in mind, patience and attention to detail are extremely important as well as not being afraid or reactive to the dogs.

For almost 20 years, we have provided quality and care to all of our customers, and are looking for a new assistant who possesses these attributes. We have a stellar reputation and are looking for someone to grow and not look at this as simply a part-time job. Salary commensurate with experience.

Experience is always Preferred, but willing to train the right two people.
Flexible work schedules and performance bonuses at year end. We are open Tuesday through Saturday and longer and additional days at Holiday time.
Must be available to work either morning,early evenings and Saturdays.
Must be dressed in a presentable fashion and be professional.
If you have no experience with animals, please include a note or cover letter telling me why you are interested. Submitting your resume tells me absolutely nothing about you.

If grooming is a passion for you, the salon owner is a patient and great teacher. If this sounds like the right kind of place for you, please contact us.

Note: Salary requirements will not be discussed until employment application is filled out and candidate interviewed. Must come in to salon and fill out an application.

Hiring Need: As soon as possible.
