Bird Is The Word is open 7 days a week, Monday through Friday from 10 am to 8 pm, Saturday 10 am to 6 pm and Sunday from 12 pm to 5 pm. However, we start our work day at 8 am. Many people believe we spend our days playing with birds and chatting with people who come into the store, but the majority of the day is spent feeding, watering, cleaning cages, changing papers, sweeping, mopping floors, hauling out garbage, making vegetables, feeding babies, etc. This is done not only on the main showroom floor, but also in the breeding room, boarding room, kitchen/nursery area and the back room. We also try to give honest and helpful information to customers in the selection of birds and in any advice they may be seeking both in person and on the phone. If this sounds like a glamorous job to you, please continue with the application!
