I worked at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

Pros

You get into the zoo for free...that's about it.

Cons

Management is unconcerned about staff health and safety. Staff must stand outside with no shade even when there is a heat advisory. Sun block and umbrellas had to be begged for.
No overtime (ever).
Extremely poor management overall.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take better care of your employees. Provide overtime to employees that must stay after their shift has ended to prepare for health inspection the night before it is to take place. Hire managers that are goal oriented and have good organizational skills.

    I worked at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

    Pros

    Working in the services sector is a good springboard for zoologists or anyone who wants to work with animals. Good insight into the food industry at the customer exchange point. Excellent as a part-time high school job.

    Cons

    Inconsistent hours that depends heavily on the number of visitors each day. The job is very boring and repetitive but nonetheless expected for a hourly wage job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your anger management under control.

    I worked at Columbus Zoo and Aquarium part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The managers and leads were all very friendly, as well as the majority of the other employees. The job was decently easy, and the pay goes up every year you come back. I love the zoo!

    Cons

    The leads are very bad about letting people go home at their scheduled shift time. I cannot even being to count all of the times I have stayed two or more hours past when I was supposed to be let off.
