Desirable Jobs Lead to Disposable Employees
Written by Graduate and Adult Programs Coordinator (Former Employee) from Denver, CO on March 20, 2019
This may or may not be the culture at zoos as a whole, but my experience with Denver Zoo was, rather than work with employees to coach them or help them improve when they fall short, in many cases they are just cast aside for someone else whom the manager prefers. Because these positions are so desirable and Colorado is an at-will state, no improvement - more...
Pros
Free zoo membership and free access to other SCFD facilities in Denver, discounted tickets to zoo events, behind the scenes access on occasion, good benefits
Cons
zoo does not contribute to retirement plan until after one year, coordinator-level and below must be on site to clock in/out which can lead to a culture of mistrust, hourly employees are rarely allowed to work over-time
