The Animal Health Care Center of Hershey in Hershey Pennsylvania is looking for another small animal associate veterinarian to join our team. Like many others right now, our schedule is full and we’re firing on all cylinders so we would love to add another veterinarian to our team of 6 (4.5 FTE) veterinarians. Full time or part time options available.
We have all the shiny things you could want as a practicing small animal vet (digital radiography, dental radiography, in-house lab and ultrasound, and so on and so forth...) but our intangibles are what make us special.
we have team members who stay with us for long periods of time likely because we pay our team members well and let them do their jobs (read: so vets can be vets),
as a vet on appointments you typically get 2.5 technicians/assistants paired with you so once again you can do vet things and they can do tech things,
our hospital has 5 examination rooms (4 regular exam rooms and one comfort/consult room with separate outside entrance) making appointment flow smoother
we don't do on-call (been there done that, we're over it...and an ER center is 30 min away),
we have cloud-based computerized medical records,
we practice low-stress handling and sedate (orally or injectable) for stressful procedures so our patients don’t hate us and we don’t feel like mean people,
we have great clients (they bring us lots of treats so beware of a freshman 15-like syndrome upon hiring)...
but like everyone there are some clients that drive us nuts yet we have a management team that is not afraid to let clients know if they're out of line and need to shape up or ship out
our Christmas party is the best (seriously our staff talk about it for months!)
we like to work hard..but also have fun (because who doesn't want to have fun?)
our hours are 7AM-6:30PM M-F and Sat AM from 8AM-12PM so no late evening work is expected
we have an owner veterinarian who enjoys teaching and mentoring students and would be open to mentoring the motivated new grad or young veterinarian
Now for the more boring stuff –
we are privately owned and operated
salary is via Pro-Sal (no negative accrual) but most of our FT associates end up making 100K+ a year
we pay all the things and have all the perks (license renewals, DEA, VIN/AVMA/PVMA memberships, 100% health insurance for FT employees, Simple IRA with 3% match, prof liability coverage, pet care discounts, access to dental/vision coverage, CE allowances, 3 weeks vacation)
What we’re looking for in regards to schedule (varies if you’re looking for part time or full time work): one surgery day from ~8 am till about 4 pm; two to three 5 hour appointment blocks (PMs are 1-6pm, AMs are 7-12), one Saturday AM a month from 8-12 noon
