People who had volunteer the longest and been there forever should have an opportunity to be an intern behind the scenes and also they should pass that people who has trouble getting a diploma and just have equivalent get on to be intern or do a class for them to learn and go over ever animals information.

The director is hardly around, wont order anything, wont do anything, sucks at every aspect of doing everything, and complains about the most petty of things. he has employees doing inventory, he doesn't know what he has in stock which is laughable, complained that i used too many foam cups, even though i only used 1, stating "they are expensive". no manager is there to check the liquor in in the mornings etc.
Educator (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – May 31, 2018
The aquarium was a great place for college students to work. The guests came from all over the world, and most kids wanted to learn about the animals. It was nice to make relationships woith people and share interests with my coworkers.
Crew Member (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – March 12, 2018
While holding a job at Audubon, I was 17, a minor, and clocked ever day at 9:30 a.m. I was able to find my stations very easily and my managers were very funny and understanding when it came to my knee problems. I learned responsibility, time management, and how to take pride in my work. The hardest part of the job for me was speaking up and meeting people who had been there for years. I was nervous to be in a new place surrounded by new faces, but after a few weeks, I met new people and built up my relations with the staff. I enjoyed the events that were thrown for the staff on weekends for us to know each other better and just have a good with each other.

If you love animals one really neat thing about this place is the ability to visit and view all types of animals from fish to birds to mammals. Incredible to think this could be your working back yard.
Not your average work place. Plenty to see and do. Ability to wear multiple hats

Great company, physically demanding. You may have to stay during hurricances. Definately a moderate to high risk job. Pay could certainly be better. I think the real reward here is working with all the animals.

the hardest part of the job is driving thru 10 thousand people but I love it. I learned to deal with problems I wouldn't have to in an ordinary day. the hardest part is fighting for hours and dealing with problem customers the most enjoyable is working with kids.
ffree lunches, they work with you when you have Dr.s appt

Audubon is a great place to work. They are doing great things and do well in helping preserve conservation efforts. A great job for someone who likes a fast paced work environment with lots of animals and guest.
Junior Counselor (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – August 27, 2017
I loved working at Audubon Zoo because there were always new friendly faces everyday. I worked with kids who were always energetic and fun to be around with counselors who wanted to be there. The hardest part of the job was keeping 30 plus kids in check in the middle of a hot summer day with strangers all around you. The most enjoyable part was getting to see behind the scenes at a zoo with kids who were amazed and excited to see it themselves.
Fun activities, behaved children, free lunch (sometimes).
