Dog Lover

Why We Are Different Than Your Last Job

When you work at HHS, you have many supervisors. Most do not speak English. They speak dog or cat. As a staff member, you work for the animals, and if you don't perform appropriately, they will let you know with a loud "woof!" or a screeching "meow!"

They are always watching you. Talk about being micromanaged! But, also this is the most rewarding career you will ever find.
