About San Diego Zoo

Talk about animal magnetism! The Zoological Society of San Diego is a not-for-profit organization that operates the 100-acre San Diego Zoo, which cares for more than 4,000 individual animals as well as a collection of some 6,500 species of plants. The Zoological Society also manages the 1,800-acre San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park and the center for Conservation and Research for Endangered Species. The zoo entertains all with its daily shows, in-park restaurants, guided tours, and special events. The society also supports conservation education and efforts, such as planned travel adventure-tours to exotic destinations such as Mexico or Africa. It was founded by Dr. Harry Wegeforth in 1916.

Considering it was the zoo it was a great place to work
Food Service Clerk, San Diego, CA - July 21, 2015
A typical day for me consisted of coming into work and checking the assignment schedule to see what area I would be working. I learned a lot about team work and also being independent on the job from working here. Management here were ok, but I felt at time like they had there favorites. This was just a seasonal job for me so I only experienced them for so long. As far as my co-workers, some were great and some were not. The hardest part of my job was coming to work and feeling like I was getting taken advantage of at times. The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to see the animals everyday because I am a major animal lover.
