 Austin, TX

Part-Time Pet Retail Sales Associate

Locally owned for over 75 years, Tomlinson’s Feed is Central Texas’s favorite pet store with the healthiest products and world-class customer service. And, we want you to join our family!

Winner of the Austin Chronicle’s “Best of Austin” for eight years running, Team Tomlinson’s is passionate about helping our customers find the right nutrition for their pets. Because of our dedicated, bright, and talented Team Members, we are THE local leader for healthy, natural pet nutrition.

We value what matters most:

  • Pet Health: From our Integrative Vet Consults, Dental Clinics, and selection of healthy pet food and supplies, we strive to offer the best in pet health for Central Texas.
  • Customer Delight: Our customers are the best (you'll see). We love to delight them with new products, services, and perks.
  • A Happy Team: Tomlinson's is built by a fulfilled, competitively compensated team. Our starting wage is $15 per hour and team members are eligible for performance-based increases.

If you’re a pet-loving people person in search of a family-owned, local, and fur-filled place to work, we want to meet you!

This is not working at your average pet retail store and no one day on the job is the same. But…

….on a typical day, you will:

  • Offer each of our four-legged customers a belly rub and treats (sorry, this is a requirement!)
  • Get to know your local community: their names, their needs, and more
  • Train on new products or information about pet nutrition
  • Receive, stock, and rotate healthy pet products
  • Help train and teach new staff.
  • Work as a team with coworkers to achieve sales goals and milestones
  • Do what’s best for our guests and their pets

Each Team Member is a crucial part of his or her store and provides Tomlinson’s customers with top-notch service and solutions to their pets’ needs.

To be a happy and successful Team Member, you are:

  • A Pet Lover (obviously!)
  • A People-Person: you enjoy meeting and truly getting to know customers
  • A Team Player: you thrive in a team environment and are a source of encouragement to coworkers
  • Self-Motivated: you love the sense of accomplishment from seeing a task through to completion
  • A Passionate Learner: you crave knowledge and are constantly learning new things
  • Results-Driven: you take on and tackle goals with enthusiasm
