But before I tell you a bit about this super awesome opportunity, let me say something about this neck of the woods. Eagle River, Wisconsin is one of our great county’s preferred destinations to work, live, love, play and enjoy living with the dramatic beauty of what folks around here like to call “God’s Country”. This is outdoor living at its finest.

Dr. Katie and the team at Eagle River Animal Hospital have been successfully changing the world one pet at a time for many years. This is NOT your grandads vet clinic!  We’re looking for rockstars to join our unique team.

Rockstar abilities you must have:

  • Willing and able to have fun changing the world one pet at a time.
  • Able to live and breathe family practice vibes with our clients and awesome team.
  • Excellent communication ability with people, even the occasional ornery, miffed client.
  • Problem solving, and the ability to motivate people into action.
  • It’s a requirement that you earn bonuses to bolster your income. Not making good bonus income = public beheading. We don’t take kindly to people not earning bonus income.

 We have several team positions we’re looking to fill immediately:

  • Weekend Day Urgent Care Doc – no on call work (‘cause that’s YOU!)
  • Baddass Associate Docs who can finish a Suture with one hand tied behind their back. Yeehaw!!….
  • Magic Touch Vet Techs and Vet Assistants. Must be able to ride that pony of production with the best of the best of them.

Good news! We provide training as needed for all these positions!  If you have rockstar potential you should be killing it within 30 days.  Pay based on individual rockstarness, experience and capabilities.

If you are a Game Changer and this opportunity has a vibe that touches you, then PM or email your short version resume with a couple people that can attest to your rockstarness, and a short paragraph of why you believe you are a Game Changer to Amber Plautz, the practice manager, at [email protected].
