    Exhibit Interpretation

    I have been working at MAIFE

    Pros

    If you love animals and people, this is a great job to have. It is fun to educate people about the variety of animals, and it is also fun just to see the animals (beluga whales, seals, sea lions, penguins, sharks, rays, etc.) on a regular basis.

    Cons

    It can be exhausting at times, and sometimes you will have to stand outside in the snow and the cold on wintery days (so be sure to dress warmly). You will have to learn how to best manage crowds and how to reinforce rules kindly but firmly.

    Nice Coworkers, Okay Bosses, but Tourists are Exhausting

    I have been working at MAIFE

    Pros

    There are days where it feels like you are getting paid to enjoy a nice day and be with the animals, you get lots of hours, coworkers are great, and the specials are delicious

    Cons

    Dealing with rude tourists can be exhausting, bosses are generally uninvolved, and there is little upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow workers who have been with the company for a while to have more promotion opportunities, deal with problem guests more swiftly, the employees work harder than you sometimes give them credit for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try doing your job instead of putting the responsibility on those under you.
