    My Pet Chicken ( ) is a new and growing business helping connect people with chickens. We're looking to hire help, either part-time or full-time, but we've been having a hard time finding someone who meets our criteria. Since the Backyard Chickens Forum is full of people who love chickens, we thought we'd reach out to you! Below is the job description; if you yourself would be interested or you know of someone who would, please do let us know. Applications (resume and cover letter) can be sent to [email protected] with "Customer Service Position" in the subject line. We are looking to hire immediately.

    Thanks for your help!!

    My Pet Chicken sells chicken coops, baby chicks, chicken supplies, and gifts for chicken lovers like books, artwork, tin signs etc. We also attract people to our website with lots of helpful, free information and resources for raising pet chickens.

    THE JOB, either part-time or full-time, is to field phone calls to our 800 number, answer questions, place orders for clients, answer emails and make sure orders are fulfilled. Yes, you can do this from home! Some days we are busier than others; on quieter days you’re free to do whatever you want, so long as you’re keeping up with phones, emails, and order fulfillment and you remain at home during your working hours.

    WE'RE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO IS a fast learner, articulate, honest, has very good web/internet skills, and has a professional & courteous phone manner. And you’ve really got to be a good writer and speller, since this is difficult to teach. Only candidates who currently keep chickens or have kept them in the past will be considered. (We want someone who really knows chickens!)

    REQUIREMENTS are that you have a good, fast computer with a DSL or Cable connection, and a quiet place to work from: no dogs barking in the background or children yelling. (Roosters crowing, on the other hand, are perfectly acceptable) [​IMG]

    and teach you what you need to know to carry out this job. It is fairly straightforward, and you’ll be able to do it in your sleep once you get the hang of it.

    will be $8 per hour regardless if it’s slow or busy. Over time there will be the opportunity to take on more responsibility and earn more. We are accepting both part time and full time applicants.

    IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO MIGHT BE INTERESTED, please have them send their resume and cover letter to [email protected] with “Customer Service Position” in the subject line. We are looking to hire immediately.

    Thanks so much!

    That sounds great.
    I have a question. You are based in NJ, so when tax time rolls around, doesn't that mean that the employee would have to pay and file non resident NJ taxes as well as pay and file some sort of "income from out of state" with their own state tax people?
    Not trying to put a damper on a great opportunity, but wanting to make sure our members consider all angles (and potential headaches). [​IMG]

    Hi all,

    Thanks so much for the great response! Please keep those resumes rolling into [email protected]. We're really excited at what we've seen so far.

    Regarding taxes, yes -- if you're out of state, you will have to file nonresident taxes. Hopefully the benefits of working from home and being able to talk about chickens all day would outweigh any drawbacks, though! [​IMG]

    Since I am carless and can't get to my job at Petco, I might be interested also...

    I can't imagine being able to work from home and still talk about what we talk about anyway. I guess Rootbeer just might be able to sit at the computer with me all day and peck at the comma's and period's as I type them. [​IMG]
