Pros: animal interaction, public interaction
Cons: pay rate, hours, manager quality
A typical day at the farm consists of feeding and taking care of the animals in the morning and afternoons. The mid day usually involves any repair work needed to be done to any of the buildings enclosures or landscape. Ive learned several thing while being employed, such as animal husbandry, heavy equipment operating, leadership of a team and public interaction skills. The management is a bit lacking. It could be improved if it was allowed because the facility does hold a lot of potential. My coworkers are fun to work with and we make a great team. We work well together to accomplish the daily tasks and any project assigned. The hardest part of the job is completing a task with no directive from the supervisor. The lack of communication leads to confusion on every aspect of the project details. The most enjoyable part is dealing with animals on a daily basis, seeing as I am an animal lover myself.
