hiring process

Our Hiring Process

The Swifto Team knows how much your cat means to you, so we have made it a point to only hire the best cat sitters in the city. We’ve done this by carefully vetting every single sitter that we work with. We ensure that our cat sitters are the best of the best, and we actually only hire less than 1% of our applicants. Let us explain how:
two interviews

Two Interviews

Every single person that becomes a cat sitter for Swifto goes through two interviews. One phone interview, to make sure that they meet our basic requirements, and then a personal interview to make sure that they are experienced, knowledgeable, and passionate about animals. Our staff only selects the cream of the crop: the people with the best animal (and people) skills who will provide quality kitty care every single time.

 
experience

Experience

All of our cat sitters have had years of experience with animals. Including but not limited to:

Having worked as a cat sitter or a pet sitter in the past. Having owned at least one pet.

Having volunteered at places like a shelter or a doggy day care.

A 4- Step Training Process

Even after all of these checks we still want to make sure our cat sitters are not only loving and experienced with cats, but are also knowledgeable, which is why they go through a 4 step training process. This process includes an online course regarding cat behavior and safety, and an in-person session about professionalism in animal care and maintaining the highest level of service possible.

 
experience

A Background Check

Before welcoming anyone to our team, we have a strict screening process including a criminal background check. Rest assured, we only hire people who have surpassed our rigorous standards!
