    I have been working at Detroit Zoological Society full-time (more than an year)


    When you become an employee, you see a new side to the zoo. You learn about the animals and all of the strides the zoo is making for both captive and wild animals. The training is sound an very effective, they make it clear that they want you to succeed and be safe in your work. There is a great amount of continuity from their mission statement and core values as it applies to everyday tasks.


    There is a serious lack of interdepartmental communications for day to day operations. This results in wrong information being shared and guest becoming frustrated, which takes a toll on sales and staff morale. Full-time year-round staff seem a bit "high and mighty" around the seasonal staff members.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would love it if inter-departmental relations and communications improved. There were several instances of communication lapses that directly affected my work.

    Positive Outlook
