Marketing and Sales Intern (Current Employee) – Apple Valley, MN – May 7, 2015
Lots of social media work and promotions. Learned lots about being the voice of a brand & seeing how a the zoo works as a whole. Management and co-workers are great people & love their jobs here. They are very helpful with learning various activities around the zoo. Hardest part is that I would prefer a busier work environment as an intern or entry level position. I enjoy the perks of working at the zoo & see how much work goes into keep this place running besides just having animals.
Interpretive Volunteer (Current Employee) – Apple Valley, MN – January 18, 2013
Volunteering at the Minnesota Zoo is a wonderful experience. The animals receive superb care and the entire staff is very competent and congenial. My contact with the zoo's guest is marvelous. I love answering questions, giving brief presentations about the animals, and helping in any way I can.
