Pros: zoo membership, discount to affiliate establishments (museums, etc)
Cons: short breaks, lack of job security, terrible management, blatant favoritism
A typical day at work consisted of greeting guests in a professional, courteous and enthusiastic manner, solving concerns, as well as assisting visitors in the understanding of ticket options, explaining not only general admission, but other opportunities throughout the Zoo, including attraction tickets, memberships, city passes, and other sales promotions. Through this job I learned excellent customer service skills, problem solving abilities, techniques for effective communication, and how to work under pressure. The most enjoyable part of working at the Zoo was the fact that I had the opportunity to meet so many diverse people. The only bad thing was the fact that management was unorganized, unfair, and showed blatant favoritism.
