I have been working at San Antonio ZOO full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The animals of course! Its great to learn about creatures you have never heard of before. My favorite appearance was learning training techniques through positive reinforcement. These techniques are useful in your everyday life when dealing with people or children. I loved the babies born and monitoring their growth.

Cons

Upper Management. They did not listen to the keepers advice. Those of us who worked closely with the animals day in & day out. It was common to put our lives and the animals live at risk, There have been avoidable deaths and sexual harassment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to take care of the people who work for them. It is one of the lowest paying zoos in the nation.

    I worked at San Antonio ZOO part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    the supervisors genuinely care about their employers and the animals
    it was an easy job there's noting complicated about working a register and counting your money at the end of the day
    really relaxed and it's pretty easy to get along with everyone, they have some very loyal employees

    Cons

    they hire some high schoolers who act their age at work. don't get involved in their drama and work will be fine
