    Pros

    Working with the animals is very rewarding, you stay in shape, and get to educate and meet many new people who visit the zoo every day. Many of the workers are very passionate about their jobs, and you get work with very educated people.

    Cons

    Strenuous work. Sometimes management has a hard time listening to everyone opinions. I was very understaffed and in order to keep up you have to work overtime and work very hard.

    Advice to Management

    Try to cut back chore lists for keepers and encourage the city to hire more groundskeepers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at CIty and County of Honolulu, Hawaii (Honolulu, HI) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Submit application online, interview over phone or in person. Process takes many months. The in-person interview is in front of a panel of 4 people in management positions at the zoo. They ask you very specific questions about how to do certain things, safety protocol, and other experiences you have. They grade you on a point system and if you don't hit key terms or points, you don't get points, and will not be considered or the position.

    Interview Questions

    • How to alleviate pest problems.   1 Answer

    Negotiation
