Seasonal Horticulture (Former Employee) –  Toledo, OhOctober 11, 2015
Nice positive environment, nice professional supervisors, beautiful atmosphere, but after two years there was little incentive to stay. Part-time that went from 32 to 28 hrs a week, no benefits, no holiday pay, nothing, infrequent raises( one every year and a half).I was considered seasonal but worked a year round schedule? performed landscaping duties in all weather for minimum wage. Imagine being outside at seven in the morning, dark, zero degrees, as your hands go numb ,hurting, taking down Christmas lights. I had better pay and better benefits at a thrift store if that tells ya' anything.
Pros
fun atmosphere, different
Cons
Low Pay, Part time, No benefits, Harsh working conditions, Sparse Raises

Typical part time job
Assist customers (Former Employee) –  Toledo, OHJanuary 28, 2013
The Zoo was a typical first part-time job. It was the first job for many teens. However, they were good to me for several years working with my schedule. There was just no promise of advancement or salary raise. As i get older, these are things i am looking for.
