Employment Opportunities

Working at Camino Real Pet Clinic means becoming part of a thriving family of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, receptionists, and other staff. We work hard as a team and move fast, and we have lots of fun doing so. Our culture nurtures positive energy and a supportive work environment (see our mission statement). First and foremost, all of us are passionate about animals, and some of us have a veritable zoo of critters at home. We provide the highest quality of general practice veterinary care on the peninsula, with advanced training for our doctors and cutting-edge technology, including digital x-ray, digital dental x-ray, ultrasound, video-microscopy, video-otoscopy, tonopen, and extensive in-house lab equipment. Yet our building (a converted family home) evokes a warm, cozy feeling, with an old fireplace in the reception area.

We take care of our employees, and offer excellent compensation and benefits:

  • Competitive pay-scale for a life-long career
  • Extensive paid time off (PTO) and holidays to recharge your batteries
  • 401k matching program to save for your retirement
  • Premium health insurance with Kaiser to keep you healthy (full-time employees only)
  • Generous professional discount to keep your beloved pets healthy
  • Paid parking to facilitate your arrival at work
  • New scrubs to freshen your looks
  • Free Continuing Education events (such as Sage Symposium) to keep you current on the latest developments in veterinary medicine

What else sets us apart? We offer you a superior work-life balance: unlike other practices, our weekend hours are limited to 8am-12pm on Saturdays (closed on Sundays). Moreover, we schedule you for only one Saturday shift every two weeks, giving you two full weekends off each month. We strive to provide you with a predictable work schedule, giving you a minimum of two months advance notice for your shifts (viewable online). Our turnover rate is very low – most employees have worked here for many years, which goes to show the high level of employee satisfaction at Camino Real Pet Clinic.

We are a drug-free, smoke-free, equal opportunity work-place.

Veterinary Assistant - nearly full-time

We are looking for an experienced veterinary assistant who is interested in establishing a long-term career at our veterinary hospital in Burlingame.

Your work schedule would start with four midweek shifts each week (Monday-Thursday) and a Saturday shift every other weekend. Midweek shifts are 9am-closing (approximately 5:50pm); Saturday shifts are 8am-12pm.

Your primary focus would be on patient care:
- rooming patients and assisting the doctor in appointments
- helping with nurse appointments (vaccinations, blood draws, urinalysis, blood pressures, SQ fluids, x-rays, nail-trims, and anal gland expressions).
In addition, you would help with refiling charts, filling out paperwork, answering phones, and other miscellaneous tasks. Finally, all employees pitch in to keep the hospital looking clean and professional.

We would prefer to hire someone with prior experience as a veterinary assistant, but a minimum prerequisite is confident animal restraint of dogs and cats. Key personality traits we are looking for include enthusiasm, good energy, excellent communication and team-work skills, and a love for animals. Any job in veterinary medicine is a physical job: you will be on your feet for most of the day, and may occasionally have to carry bags of dog food or pets (up to 50 pounds).

Compensation: negotiable based on experience.

If you are interested in the position, please email us your resume at caminorealpetclinic@gmail.com
