"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life” — Confucius. At IPH, we work with the best of society—pets. Those family members (furry, feathery, or scaly) that show us unconditional love and are the most enthusiastic when we get home from work. We not only value the significant impact that pets have on our lives but the special relationship between a pet and its owner.
These values and many others are what make growing your career with Intermountain Pet Hospital so appealing for animal lovers.
One of the cornerstones to making a company a great place to work is embodying a culture of shared values between employees and a company. At IPH, we value the bond between pets and humans.
Focus on Work-Life Balance
Flexjobs did a survey in 2018 and found that 73% of those surveyed rated work-life balance as the most important factor in choosing a company to work for. We agree that life should not be all about your work and work should not consume your life. Employees who have a good balance between their career, family, sleep, and exercise are happier and more productive in all areas of their life. They can also handle stress better which is important when dealing with pets and their owners.
Competitive Wages and Benefits
While work-life balance is one of the most important factors in why people choose to work for a company, what a position pays is a close second. Earning a livable wage and having benefits is a must when it comes to the real world of paying bills and buying groceries.
IPH offers these benefits plus many more:
- Paid holidays
- Paid time off
- Retirement investment plans
- Medical/dental/vision insurance
- Paid continuing education
- Employee discounts on services
- Certification/tuition reimbursement program through Penn-Foster
- Paid observation time in other departments
- Leadership program
Continuing Education & Tuition Reimbursement
Education and training are a big part of what makes everyone successful in a medical environment that is always changing and advancing. Doctors and technicians are required to complete annual and bi-annual credits to maintain their certifications, but IPH encourages all employees to continually seek out new educational opportunities in and out of the veterinary field.
We could go on and on about why working for IPH is amazing, but really, the number one reason to work here is that we have the privilege of serving the best in our society—pets. If you are interested in starting your career in veterinary medicine, check out our open positions on our careers page.
