General Employment Information

Introduction
Our family-owned small business is located in Central Connecticut, and takes pride in being a great place to work. The average employee has been with us for over six years as of 4/22, and most full-time employees consider this place a career. You can count on a drama-free, friendly, accepting, and caring working environment. NEHERP is an equal opportunity employer.

Advancement & Compensation
Most positions start at $14/hr, with opportunities for raises & advancement reviewed each year. Team reviews are held privately every 10-14 months where each employee is given 1-on-1 time with the owners or managers of the company. Open forum company meetings take place every 3-9 months where everyone has the opportunity to make suggestions, share ideas, and more. Management of NEHERP have an open door policy, and you can count on being treated fairly and honestly.

Life-Friendly Scheduling
Our business's schedules stay mostly the same every week, and we try to be accommodating when setting up initial work schedules for every new team member. If you are in school or have a second job, we'll do our best to build a schedule which will fit your lifestyle. If your schedule changes during the year, we'll do our best to be as accommodating as possible. Lunch breaks are flexible (30-60 minutes) and scheduling time off is a drama-free automated process.

Employee Perks
Employees can count on steep discounts (20-80%) on anything we offer in the store. Our vivarium building area and tools are also free to use, and 1-on-1 help from the experienced members of staff may also be available if desired. We participate in the Paid Leave Program, which may allow for up to 95% of a team member's wages to be covered in the event that they need to take some off for a qualifying reason. (Having a kid, health issues, family member w/health issues, etc!) Safety-trained employees qualify for free access to our workshop, where they are welcome to tackle personal projects using any one of the tools we have available. (3D Printing, CNC Machinery, Woodworking, Welding, Automotive, Etc!) Basic stuff like coffee, energy drinks, and most feeders are also free to members of staff.

Setting Expectations
Our working environment is surrounded by life. There are plants, animals, bioactive terrariums, and plenty of other exciting elements to our shop and it's truly a unique place to work. That being said, most positions are dedicated to supporting our online store, and our fast-paced Logistics Department is really the core of our business. About 90% of all labor hours are either dedicated to logistics directly, or help support that department through some form of product production. If you'll feel comfortable in an upbeat, fast-paced, and friendly working environment, our shop might be a perfect fit!

Prerequisites & Considerations
• Applicants 16-18 years old must provide 2+ letters of recommendation. Work history is not mandatory.
• Applicants 19+ years old must provide 2+ professional letters of recommendation and a consistent work history.
• A degree is a bonus, but is not required for most positions. Time spent in College doesn't count toward work history.
• Time served in any branch of the American Military counts towards work history. Thank you for your service. ♥
• Applicants may be asked to submit to a drug screening. Pot (legal in CT) is excluded from screening but forbidden on the premises.
