Great for a first time job.
Merchandise Supervisor (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXOctober 23, 2014
Pros: team worked based, good pay, room for advancement
Cons: heat during summers, no benefits at seasonal supervisor.
My day starts making sure cashiers get to locations, make sure locations are in order, cleaned and stocked through out the day. Attend to guest and employees needs. At the end of the day I help cashiers count out there cash drawers. I learned by working at the Zoo its a great place to work if you love animals, people, working outdoors and working in – more... a team work environment. I also quickly found out that if you work hard you can gain advancement to a higher level. Co-workers usually consist of high school and college aged, there are a lot of older aged as well. People come and go, but you make friends, and you build a teamwork base. The hardest part is working during the long hot Texas summers also working long hours but no benefits. The job is a lot a fun and a great way to a paycheck if you are still living at home and in school. – less

Great place for a starting job. A lot of the positions are outdoors so if you have to stand the heat and cold rainy days. A lot of turn over with employees and management so new coworkers every couple months.

fun work place
Cashier (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXJune 25, 2014
I loved working at the fort worth zoo, that was probably due to the fact that I was only a cashier, all i did was take orders, clean and make drinks. I also had some really cool coworkers some of them I still talk to today. The best thing about the zoo is that it pays about 8.15 an hour which is pretty good for a highschooler....which I was at the time. – more... One thing I can say about the zoo though is they are EXTREMELY strict like there are cameras everywhere and people get written up for some of the craziest things. If you lose a receipt that isore than 5 dollars even if the money already in zoo banklike really, its just a receipt. Maybe its a financial thing that I know nothing about which makes it seem so absurd to me but overall the zoo is a pretty cool place to work, id work there again and the pay is good for a high school teenager – less
