Pros

Free brunch. Cool Co-workers/Team Leaders/Supervisors

No growth. No pay rise. Certain managers don't care about your well being.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I understand it's all about the best of the business BUT the employees are the ones who keep your precious business running. Be kind to them and treat them well

    Former Employee - Guest Relations Representative in Bronx, NY
    Former Employee - Guest Relations Representative in Bronx, NY

    I worked at Wildlife Conservation Society part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get to work with a team, get to interact with customers on a personal level. You gain valuable customer service, reception and administrative skills depending on which position you obtain. You get a certain satisfaction in knowing that you are working for an industry dedicated to helping wildlife as well as the environment.

    Cons

    The pay was extremely low for the amount of hard work that is asked of you. There is always drama, favoritism, and excessive office politics which sucks the joy out of working there. There is no room to grow in this industry unless you have a bachelors degree in something environment related or if you are coming in with manager experience already.They are constantly looking for new and fresh faces, which is OK in retrospect. However this prevents them from looking at all the great people within their industry who deserve a chance to shine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Guest relations department needs better management. They are severely understaffed and the reason behind that is because most of the greeters and admissions people there are constantly being suspended or even fired over every little infraction. Another reason is that they are not being paid enough, and there are no incentives to work hard or excel there. Focus on these points and the work environment as well as staffing and the quality of work will improve.
