The Pool Doctor does not discriminate against any applicant or team member based on their race, religion, sex, national origin, color, genetic makeup or any other Federal, state or local “protected class.” We are all different in many ways and we should respect these differences.
Print out The Pool Doctor employment application packet, read and complete all pages. Set aside the first seven pages. Now you will work with the remaining pages: Move page 8, the Strategic Vision Questionnaire, to behind page 13, and staple them together so the order will be 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 8. Complete page 14 and have it available should it be requested at the conclusion of the “Join the Team” seminar.

*We will be unable to consider you for a position, which include driving as part of the essential functions of the job, as your driving record will not meet the minimum criteria for our insurance company.
PLEASE NOTE: Completion of a driving course after a conviction does not alter the requirement in any way for an acceptable driving record.
If you suspect an error in your paycheck, please bring it to our attention. Over time, you will be rewarded through compensation equating to the contribution you make to the growth and success of the organization, and to the skills you develop and utilize.
There is a considerable difference in the pay of someone doing outstanding, customer oriented work, and someone who is not. We seek to reward those that “serve others well”; and help people think and act strategically. You are thinking and acting strategically when you are learning all you can, doing you best work, and receiving the higher compensation.
We instituted the “Golden Jug” program to reward and recognize outstanding service and dedication to the mission of The Pool Doctor. If you join the team, we will explain the program in detail.
SERVICE is the act of working for the benefit of others. Team members serve our customers and management and owners serve team members to learn, grow and succeed in the workplace and in life. By serving others we make a contribution to the world and we are rewarded. When we all serve in our roles, our organization flourishes because the needs of all are met. The more value we provide, the better we all will be compensated.
RESPECT for all is a trait that we seek to foster in our work environment. You are to treat customers and team members with respect at all times. If you have been wronged, you are to treat the other party with respect and bring your concern to management for evaluation and assistance. We are all here to grow, encourage one another, and get the job done. Gossip or negative attitudes are examples of the opposite of respect.
INTEGRITY can be defined as being upright, honest, respectful and sincere. It can also be defined as doing what is right when no one is looking. Having integrity means that when an error is made, you admit it as opposed to hiding it. Integrity is a core principle to be applied in all dealings with customers, team members and suppliers. The Pool Doctor expects all team members to act with integrity, including our management and owners.
SAFTEY means that we are concerned about the safety of customers and team members. People count on us to keep pools and spas safe. Improperly balanced water can allow bacteria and viruses to multiply. People can become sick or worse. It is our job to make sure this does not happen. Team members are to be taught and follow practices that reduce the likelihood of injuries. Management is to always consider safety in every decision made.
EFFICIENCY is using the resources given to us in the proper manner to avoid wasting products, materials, supplies and time. There is a big difference between activity and productivity. We are looking for team members that come with “batteries included”, which means they are self-motivated, productive team members. There are a million ways people waste time and The Pool Doctor will allow them to work for other organizations.
Please let me share with you what I’ve learned about integrity. When I was younger I didn’t realize how important integrity is. I had to learn some things the hard way. I’ve learned: Have high standards for yourself at work and everywhere. Do your best at work and at home. Keep learning. Take pride in a job well done. Life is difficult, and it’s easy to complain and blame others. Instead, focus on being the best you can be. If you do this your life will be easier, it will be more successful, and it will have meaning.
Another thing I’ve learned the hard way is the concept of service. Focusing only on yourself will not lead to happiness or success. I know, I’ve tried! It is in serving others that you will find happiness and purpose. It is our sincere desire that The Pool Doctor will serve you by helping you learn, grow and achieve. One of our greatest satisfactions is seeing you grow as a team member and as a person. We too, are working to become better at what we do. Certainly, work is difficult, but make the most of it, and become the person you were meant to be!
The beginning of many long and mutually beneficial relationships has begun right here! We are looking for people that can grow with our business.
