    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Texas State Aquarium (Corpus Christi, TX) in May 2015

    Interview

    The interview process began with questions about myself; why I was interested in the job, why I chose the Texas State Aquarium, and how I could contribute to the aquarium. I was then led on a short tour of the aquarium and some of my guest services skills were put to the test.
    Interview

    Name a time where I offered excellent guest service.
