    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    The interview was pretty simple. I was looking for work after moving back to Columbus and I got hired on the spot. It probably helped that I have a degree in hospitality management and 2 years of customer service/cash handling experience. I even showed up an hour late for the interview too haha. I think they were desperate for the holiday's because if I was them I wouldn't have hired me based on being late. First time for me too I might add. Basically if you want to work at the Cbus Zoo get in during xmas. They might let you go after word but at least you can prove yourself then. Interview was very standard. Also, be prepared to have the interview in a junky like office that is shoved in the attic lol.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email to schedule a phone interview. I was interviewed by two people on the phone, and they called me about 20 mins after our scheduled interview time. They asked a lot about previous job responsibilities. They said they'd call back within a few days to let me know if I made it to the next round of interviews but never heard from them again.
