    I worked at City of Raleigh (More than a year)

    Pros

    At my site the manager was pretty flexible with scheduling so you could always get off when you wanted (unpaid, of course). Sometimes it's fun to work there. You get to spend lots of time outside. Sometimes there's a lot of downtime so there's time to do homework or whatever.

    Cons

    Low pay and it's hard to get a lot of hours. Parks close at different times throughout the year so the hours you get aren't consistent.

    Interview

    It was nothing out of the ordinary. I applied directly to the park, they asked me to come in for an interview. We had the interview portion and also the director showed me around the park. I was offered the job maybe a week later.

    Interview Questions

    • They gave me a list of all sorts of naturalist skills etc. that I had to rate myself on. They did say something to the effect of 'this isn't a test, we don't expect anyone to have all of these skills'.   Answer Question
    • They have natural objects and you choose one and are asked to respond as if a child has brought you that object.   Answer Question
