    I have been working at Saint Louis Zoo part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment, fun, awesome co-workers, employee/volunteer behind the scenes tours occasionally, awesome summer bbq for employees, flexible scheduling, opportunities to help out in other departments, or transfer to another department. You get to go to the zoo everyday. The animals! You can learn A LOT if you ask the questions!!
    Free parking, 50% off food, 10% retail discount.

    Cons

    Seasonal is generally March-October...
    Because it’s a seasonal there can be high turnover for some positions, college/high school kids who may not truly CARE.
    Then there’s the obvious: the weather, the traffic, working on holidays... but that’s to be expected in this type of job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Saint Louis Zoo (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I got a call from HR a week after I applied online. We set up a time the next week for an in-person interview. I got there early, but my interviewer, Dustin, was 10 minutes late to start the interview. I was supposed to meet with 2 people, but one of the people was double scheduled elsewhere. The interview was average. Dustin told me that they would be in touch, but they never did contact me again. I drove 2 hours each way for the interview, so the least they could have done was call me to say they were going a different direction. Highly disappointed with an organization that I have supported and loved for many years. Very unprofessional and disconcerting seeing as that the position I was applying for was in HR.
