Open Positions


Job Title - Shipping & Receiving Clerk

Right now we are looking to hire a smart and motivated individual to work in our warehouse in Shipping & Receiving. Our goal is to have a seamless connection between our inventory and all of our customers and distributors, including Amazon and Home Depot. We need a bright and hardworking individual to efficiently make sure we get our products into the hands of our customers as fast as possible.

Because we are a small business, we offer our employees a unique opportunity that is hard to find elsewhere: responsibility. Your job here won’t be to repeat one mundane task over and over again like a drone, but instead many of the day to day tasks that are necessary for the business to survive will fall on your shoulders. Because of this, our employees have a sharp learning curve regarding the industry. Expect to learn real-life skills that are crucial to success in your position at any business.

PetDoors.com is also offering you a unique opportunity to carve out your own niche. You will always be asked to perform the base requirements of this position, but we want you working on what interests you the most, as that is best for the company. So this position comes with the flexibility for you to shape your daily duties around your own interests and abilities after the day to day is taken care of. This position will give you real-life experience and flexibility that you’ll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.

Examples of some of the day to day responsibilities:

  • Pick, pack and ship pet doors of all types
  • Receive products from vendor deliveries and unload trucks at the loading docks
  • Compare packing lists to company purchase orders and ensure that the products in each delivery match the packing list
  • Collaborate with our marketing department to develop a schedule for assembling and displaying manufacturer marketing pieces on the sales floor
  • Update the product inventory as products are received and added to our inventory
  • Package products for return to vendors and fill out any RMA paperwork necessary prior to the shipment being picked up


To weed out the applicants that don’t read the full job description, make sure you include a cover letter and that the cover letter has the word ‘monkey’ somewhere in it. Loving dogs is also required! We have numerous dogs around the office and if you don’t love dogs, you probably wouldn't enjoy it here!
