    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Houston Zoo (Houston, TX) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Group interview with about 3-4 people interviewing you and about 4 people being interviewed. They ask a variety of kid based questions. Try to speak first cause many do not have more than one answer. Then you read a book while they pretend to be 4 year olds ( really really bad 4 year olds).
