Productive work place keeps you busy very tiring and too far to drive
Encounter staff (Current Employee) –  Gulf Shores, ALJune 11, 2017
I love working here but I honestly can't keep using all my gas to go back and fourth everyday. I love the animals it's so much fun for me but I don't get any time at home with my family I literally get off and go home to sleep.
Pros
Being around animals
Cons
Too far

Good work place with new experiences daily
Encounter Staff (Former Employee) –  Gulf Shores, ALMarch 23, 2017
I loved my job at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo! It was a fun and exciting job where each day was exciting and different. I worked with many different animals, each with their own personalities. Each animal had its own requirements in food, enrichment, and medical needs. While the animals allowed for exciting and fun days, we were a small nonprofit zoo with very few keepers. This allotted to a large work load with required very strict time management to complete all activities within the day. Our curator and director had difference of opinion on how the zoo should be run which caused great stress to rest of staff.
Pros
Fun workplace, exciting job
Cons
very heavy workload, squabbles between superiors
