    Worth the years and the crowds

    Adventure Planner (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsThe staff is friendly and laid-back. working at a zoo is a happy job in general. I loved seeing people's faces light up when I told them I worked there. The work was relatively easy and the hourly pay was good for a college student looking to earn some pocket money.

    ConsFor festival of lights, the outside shifts were unbearable. The summer heat could be pretty brutal as well. Mostly it was the angry visitors that were the worst to deal with.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncentive programs for sales are effective, but high-pressure sales tactics at the zoo seemed unnecessary at times.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Okay

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Cincinnati, OH

    ProsVery old school style management. Great research facility for the animals. Recommend this for higher level researchers or else job kinda stinks

    ConsManagement older and less flexible. Facilities older and break a lot. Job contingent in public funding. Sense of favoritism abounds.
