This is a job with cool perks.
Clerk/Cashier (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – October 26, 2016
Working at the San Diego Zoo has been fun experience in which I have been able to interact with people from all over the world. I really enjoy the fact that all of my co-workers are very friendly and team oriented. Also, as an employee at the San Diego Zoo I get to go to the Zoo and Safari Park for free and I am allotted tickets so I am able to bring friends and family as well as receive a 20% discount on food and souvenirs. I also get deals on Padres and Chargers tickets as a zoo employee. The only downside is that management is strict with policies such as uniform (no dyed hair, visible tattoos, or facial piercings), as well as with sick calls and being late, there is not a lot of leniency. Also, there is a lot of favoritism between certain leads and certain clerks which when recognized creates a feeling of an unfair environment. And since the zoo is open 365 days of the year forget about having any holidays or weekends off since vacation days and days off are given by seniority.
