About Woodland Park Zoo

In the Emerald City, it's not just the name that's green. The City of Seattle is known for rain-fed lush greenery but also for its environmentalism. It uses a charter form of government, which features an elected mayor and city council along with a city attorney. The nine council members are elected at large annually. Among some 25 other departments, Seattle has an Office of Sustainability and Environment, it's restoring salmon habitat, and it celebrates Earth Month rather than just Earth Day. The city serves a population of about 600,000 with an annual budget of around $3 billion. It was first settled by Europeans in 1851, and takes its name from Chief Seattle, a local tribal leader.

Seasonal Admissions Associate, Seattle, WA - July 2, 2015
Although I wasn't there for long, I had a lot of fun with my coworkers. The job itself was probably the easiest as people just want to get their ticket and get inside, but the only annoyance was working in the lot.
I got forgotten one night in the North lot and was lucky I ran into Scott. My phone, wallet, and keys were inside. I was pretty upset.

Overall, great place to work. Management is supportive and the guests aren't too bad.
