Roadrunner Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Hospital is opening in Albuquerque, New Mexico in winter 2022 as the newest emergency/specialty clinic in the state. We’re so excited and we’re recruiting team members who share our enthusiasm!
Our team’s mission and values set the bar high and, in return, we have much more to offer than many practices who mention the same competitive wage, positive work environment and various benefits. We offer those too but we’ve moved beyond the basics and offer a pay and benefit package that reflect the time and expertise required to obtain our DVM/VMD and to make this a sustainable, rewarding career long-term.
Our practice is locally owned by a single owner who works in our clinics on a daily basis and who has spent time as a practicing ER vet. The majority of our profit goes back into our clinic to get the equipment we need to practice top-notch medicine and for staff benefits so we continue to attract and retain the best vets, techs and customer service reps.
We want to be transparent about our salary and benefits upfront so you can see if this position is a good fit for you. Salary is $160,000 base with 25% production and no negative accrual. We offer a $20,000 signing bonus to welcome you to our team.
Full-time is considered to be 2-3 shifts per week. We pay 100% of the health insurance premium for all full time employees and also offer a dental and vision plan that employees can participate in for a nominal monthly amount. We offer 8 days of paid time off (base salary plus average production over the previous quarter is paid during vacation days). All clinic staff, not just vets, receive paid CE opportunities. Veterinarians receive up to $2500/year for continuing ed and 2 additional days of paid time off for CE. We have a matching 401K retirement plan. We offer 6 weeks of paid maternity/parental leave after one year of employment. Education is the key to personal and professional advancement and we offer an annual tuition stipend for staff pursuing educational opportunities that are applicable to the field of veterinary medicine. We offer a relocation stipend for veterinarians joining us from out of state. Additional benefits include payment of professional dues and licenses and a generous discount for medical care and boarding of personal pets. Group fitness/strength classes are an additional fun perk.
Our clients are expected to be respectful and kind. We value kindness, honesty and respect from clients and team members alike. Going to work shouldn’t be something you dread.
The full-time schedule of only 8-12 shifts per month allows for time to experience all our area has to offer from outdoor pursuits to live music and great local eateries. Our staff enjoys group outings to sporting events, cultural events and clinic-sponsored retreats.
Albuquerque, New Mexico is a beautiful city that has 4 distinct seasons. We’d love to meet you and introduce you to our team. We aim to attract the best candidates and to keep them happy and professionally fulfilled long-term! Please send resumes to Dr. Ashlee Andrews at email@example.com
