Fun location to work. But, low pay and no advancement.
Event Coordinator (Former Employee) – Events & Marketing Dept. – May 3, 2018
I really enjoyed working at the zoo. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was fun. My job involved working special events. There were great opportunities to experience behind the scenes moments and to learn about the animals. That was the best part. But - sadly the pay is very low, advancement is non-existent and the work hours are heavy during weekends and summer season. The facilities are decent, comfortable, and generally a safe place to work. However, the surrounding neighborhood is getting worse and affects the overall zoo experience.
Unique place to work. Opportunities to see behind the scenes.
Low pay, no advancement, long/busy hours in summer and on weekends.
