Pros

The Detroit Zoo is a great place to work. It has a team atmosphere and the staff is very nice. The benefits package is awesome also! There are zoo days for the staff where you can sign up to have an experience with the animals (feed them, etc.). It's very cool!

Cons

I honestly don't have any cons to list. The only one for me is that my commute is too long :(

    I worked at Detroit Zoological Society

    Pros

    The pay was pretty good ($10.50 per hour), my coworkers were nice, you get to feed some animal, and discounts on events.

    Cons

    The management sucks! Be prepared for people to talk to you very rude and talked down to. Standing for long periods of time not knowing when you'll get a break (when the zoo is busy) and the pressures of working a commission position (it's not a commission position but if you do no do well you can/will get demoted).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat you employees like you want to be treated.
