Gift shop was a fun place to work, especially working Barista
Customer service (Former Employee) –  Denver, COAugust 12, 2013
Everday I came in and had to have a mini meeting, and went and did my part to clean up the store, making everything presentable. I learned a few things about the zoo animals while working their. The hardest part of the job was on really slow days, having absolutely nothing to do.I loved being Barista for the gift shop, it ensured you would stay busy and you wouldn't be watched over like a hawk by management.
Pros
free lunches and coffee
Cons
Everyday we had a staff meeting.
