Part-Time Veterinary Receptionist (Posted 4/5/2021)

Do you consider yourself a pet lover? Are you also energized by interacting and helping out people? Then we have a job for you!

Kiln Creek Animal Care is excitedly looking to add a veterinary receptionist to our busy team and growing business. But, we’re not looking for just any receptionist. We want a candidate to compliment our already fantastic group of bubbly, motivated, all-female, strong-willed, Fear Free loving group. So, read more if you feel like we may be the right fit for you.

What’s better than working in a “big, happy family” environment? Working with a smart, cohesive team, and that’s how we roll at KCAC. It’s taken a few years of growing pains and changes, but we strive to walk out of our doors each night with a sense of pride and accomplishment at a job well done, not exhaustion and frustration from the workload of the day. How? We work hard at everything we do. We work hard to educate our owners. We work hard to put our Fear Free certification into action. We work hard to learn each other’s personalities, so we can treat one another with respect and encouragement.

We work hard to create a positive culture.

We feel that our employees should possess more than just a love for animals. We want to do the right thing for our patients, clients and coworkers each day, even if it takes extra effort.

Are you reading this and thinking, “seems too good to be true?” Believe us, we’re not like this all of the time. We like to laugh, and use sarcastic humor. We love to eat – no homemade treat from a client, box of donuts or Lunch & Learn goes untouched. Sometimes the stress of angry clients or having anal glands squirt on our clothes is enough to make us want to scream. But then, we always are there to support one another if someone is feeling down.

Enough about us. Here’s what we need from you:

Receptionists will uphold client relations by effectively communicating animal care instructions to clients, and educating clients on needed treatments and procedures. They maintain accurate medical records of treatments, procedures, and communications with owners and referring veterinarians. This position also requires a practical knowledge of the hospital’s procedures, policies and services, client and patient treatment protocols, and terminology used in the veterinary hospital.
