Anonymous (Current Employee), Mendota Heights, MN – July 14, 2014
Pros: none that i can think of.
Cons: rude, demeaning management, high turnover of employees
Owner does not appear to care about the employees including managers. Has "he's the owner" attitude and you'll do what I say. He is rude and treats everyone very badly. No training provided on new systems, not everyone is treated equally. Not a good place to work, no advancement possibilities. Everyone I have talked to has their resume out there. Very – more... high turnover. – less
Cook/Dishwasher (Current Employee), Seattle, WA – November 10, 2013
Pros: free zoo admission food discount
A typical day at work is when I come in already prepared to work I must set up my station and make sure all my equipment I use is set up so there wont be panic during work service. I learned a lot as a dishwasher and cook I had to learn in a hot fast-paced environment with a team, also had to learn to do my dishwashing duty's without having a manager – more... watch over me. The co-workers were fun to have around you could learn things from them you might not know they have knowledge from their work experience at that job. The most enjoyable part of the job was having the customers enjoy d thank me of the foods quality and my service if the customer is happy I'm happy. – less
Food service professional (Current Employee), Apple Valley, MN – July 29, 2013
Pros: great customer service training.
Cons: lots of work and repetition.
A typical day of work is coming in at 8am for a veteran employee like myself, and since i worked carts in the morning everything has to be re-inventoried. Then i set up for the day, occasionally open other carts and assist the manager with other carts and employees. Mangers rank anywhere from having a full day plan drawn out to those that weren't quite – more... ready for the job. You could work anywhere from 1 hour to 14 depending on the day. The nice thing is that even though the schedule takes a while to be posted you can tell them when you want to work or how much and the'll find a spot for you and put you to work. For a summer job not to bad. – less

Threw Lancer Hospitality I got a chance to meet a lot of different people working there, from children to the adults. I've met people from France, England, and also Germany, it was fun and exciting to work around the animals also.

Pros: fun people
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work would usually be working the grill ot the cash register. Fast paced with a lot of quick thinking and action. Co-workers friendly and easy to relate to. Most enjoyable part was atmosphere, summertime at the zoo.
Cashier, Expo (Former Employee), Memphis,TN – October 18, 2012
Pros: great food. reliable money, and perfect location
Cons: extreme heat during the summer. and extreme cold during the winter.
Lancer was located within the Memphis Zoo. They were all very happy. Lovely place to work. It only became a challenge when I became pregnant and was unable to work in the heat. I would recommend this job to any young person or someone who love working with people.
