    I applied online – interviewed at Houston Zoo.

    Interview

    Sent an online application and resume to HR after finding the post on AZA.org A few weeks later received an email from HR to set up a phone interview for the following week since I lived out of state. The phone interview was on speaker phone with 2 supervisors and the bird curator, lasted about 20-25 minutes. They asked a series of questions that weren't too bad. Be prepared to tell them what interested you about the Houston Zoo and why. They emailed me a few written questions that I needed to email back within 24 hours.
