Great Place to Work While in School
Admissions Representative (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – August 2, 2016
Typical day for an admissions representative involves selling tickets, promoting memberships, and managing other various tasks at the front gate. Occasionally, you will be required to work outside positions such as the petting zoo, wallaby, access (scanning guest's tickets when they enter), and exit gate. Prior management was good, but since has been replaced with all new management. New management is alright, not as good as the old managers. The co-workers make coming to work worth it. You will often be required to work doubles during events, so you'll be spending a lot of time with your co-workers. Everyone I've met I've gotten along with really well and it they have become my zoo family. While the work is generally a no-brainer, the most difficult aspect of this position is the guests. Expect to deal with upset guests and complaints on a daily basis, as they are generally directed to an admissions representative when they are upset. Overall, good occupation to have while attending school. Good hours, but pay is low. Would not advise for anyone looking for a serious job or to advance into upper position. Upper management hardly ever leaves, so spots rarely open up.
Great co-workers, work is fairly easy
Long hours, low pay ($8.29), not much room for advancement
