    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Chester Zoo (Chester, England (UK)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty standard, group activities, questions about what animal you would be and general values questions. You need to communicate with the other interviewees well and answer the basic questions, they hire large volume so you should be ok assuming you don't want lots of holidays over summer.
