    Current Employee - Park Safety Officer in Royal Oak, MI
    Current Employee - Park Safety Officer in Royal Oak, MI

    I have been working at Detroit Zoological Society part-time (less than an year)


    -Atmosphere (the zoo itself)
    -Flexibility (management successfully works around other obligations)
    -Uniform provided
    -"Open-door" policy
    -Plenty of exercise (post are either walked or a bicycle is used)


    -Pay (less than $10 per hour)
    -Must work holidays (except Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years)
    -Hours are sporadic and sometimes erratic (can be randomly scheduled to work 10-13 hour shifts without day of recuperation)
    -Generally looks to hire in the older demographic
    -Poorly managed
    -Too much micro-managing among peers
    -No growth (part-time seasonal, part-time, full-time, supervisor)
    -Can tell that department isn't necessarily a priority by organization (tons of outdated material and equipment)
    -Mostly outdoor environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The amount of money being paid to the officers is a little disheartening and disrespectful for the duties performed and title held; the topic should definitely be renegotiated.
