I have been a vet tech since 2006, and my current job pay is pretty good. For the first 5 years of my career I worked as a zoo vet tech. I had a great experience, but I loved the freedom it allowed me, as well as the perks that came with working for a non-profit.
Now that I’ve gotten into the zoo tech world, I’m getting more and more bored of my current job. The pay is decent, but I have to do lots of overtime (5-10 hours a day) and I spend a lot of time away from the office at conferences and events. It feels like I’ve wasted time at work.
Work life balance is important for any job, and especially in the zoo tech world. It’s a good idea to have some time off for family, personal needs, and health. At the same time, working for a non-profit is a bit of a “for-profit” lifestyle. Some of the perks, like the freedom that comes with a non-profit are missing in the zoo tech world.
Zoos are generally considered a public service, and if that makes you angry, you’re probably not a person who wants to be in that job. In fact, just look at the work that is required to do all the administrative work in a zoo, and the amount of time you’d have to spend on that. If you want to be around animals, there are lots of ways to do it. The zoo vet tech work can be done in other ways too.
There are two big ways that zoo vet techs are paid: the cash salary and the benefits package. The cash salary is pretty much the same as the average pay at a vet college, and the benefits package is just a few hundred more than the average. However, the benefits package has some perks that are worth mentioning. First of all, the zoo vet tech salary is tax exempt. But the best perk of all is the use of the service credit.
Every time you save up for your zoo vet tech, you can use the service credit to help pay for it. You can get the cash salary at a vet college for a fraction of the price. Then you can use the service credit to pay for the full cost of your service provider.
Now, this isn’t just a perk. The use of the service credit to pay for your vet tech is a great way to stretch your budget. A vet tech will cost less than you might think to train, and it’s also much easier to get a discount on your service provider than to get a discount on the vet tech itself.
I know this seems like a good way to waste money, but it is. When you’re a vet tech you have to work long hours, so you don’t have time to get around to eating out of your own pocket. The only thing you have to pay for is the service provider.
So if you’re looking for a way to save money and still look good, then a veterinary tech is a good alternative. In addition to being able to work long hours and getting a discount on the service provider, a vet tech also helps you get into the elite vet school for more lucrative practice positions.
So what are the benefits? According to the University of Veterinary Medicine and Science (UVMS), some of the highest salaries you can earn in the industry are for veterinary techs. These highly-skilled professionals are able to obtain the highest-paying jobs simply by being a very skilled vet tech. The veterinary tech position is highly competitive so those who are able to get into the elite vet school can easily make a lot of money.
