    I worked at Shedd Aquarium


    So much fun to work , great pay and a lot of benefits . Very diverse group of people and you get good hours . Your off work by 5pm , so there is always something to do afterwards


    Standing out side in the hot sun. Dealing with rude people . people can sometimes get on your nerves, trying to get in sooner
