    Wonderful work environment, but not a lot of upward opportunity.

    Groundskeeper (Former Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsThe St. Louis Zoo presents a wonderful work environment filled with friendly people who are willing to lend a hand. They allow flexibility in the work environment and management is generally friendly. On top of all that, you get to see some of the world's most exotic animals on a daily basis.

    ConsThe hours at the Zoo can be challenging. Shifts can start as early as 5 am and weekends and holidays are required (animals are a 24/7/365 ordeal). People frequently think they will get to play with animals, but in fact you only watch the animals. No close contact is allowed and people are fired for touching the animals (unless its in their job description).

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management generally does a pretty good job of managing resources. The one aspect that can be frustrating is that sometimes management puts a premium on making money and not on animal welfare-for example summer concerts held at the zoo.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Decent Part Time job

    Seasonal Manager (Former Employee)
    Saint Louis, MO

    ProsNot over worked, a fairly loose and relaxing environment. A great place to meet a lot of cool people from all walks of life.

    ConsZero advancement chances, pennies for yearly raises, full time management does NOTHING. Hourly staff are the only people working and they get paid minimum wage.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe organization makes millions, the CEO earns more than $500,000 a year, Start paying your staff!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
