In my opinion, say you don't have pets, because my interview went well and I was overqualified for the position yet somehow I was turned down. They made a face when I said I had cats. In the interview, they said no pet mice, which I don't have but I read on here another person interviewed and I said if you say you have pets you won't get hired. Less
Big no for cats, snakes, and rodents.
I was asked if I come in contact with rodents, reptiles, or cats. Not necessarily if I own pets, and they provide pet insurance benefits. So I think you're safe saying you have a dog. Less
One thing they asked about that bothered me was asking about what kinds of animals you owned in your own home because as an employee for Harlan you cannot own any kind of reptile, rodent, or exotic pet in your own home, supposedly due to the risk of transferring potential disease to the animals. I can understand this but considering that you dont even wear your own clothes while you work I feel that this is a bit much.
At the time of my interview, I answered that I owned a dog and a snake and I was told by the temp agency that if I wanted to be considered further for the position I would have to get rid of my snake within the timeframe of the next 7 days. Less
