    I worked at National Zoo part-time

    Pros

    The environment was very friendly. I had a great time working there. Amazing seeing people come from all over the world to our zoo.

    Cons

    It was very difficult to get to and from the job. The discount on food could have been a little better for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to actually get to know the people you are working with, it makes a bigger difference than you would probably think.
