    I have been working at Lowry Park Zoo part-time

    Pros

    You get to work with great people - and animals :) Employment comes with complimentary membership to zoo, FL aquarium, and MOSI. Can get limited free admission to many FL attractions.

    Cons

    Pay is not worth the work that is required of you. Long hours in the heat and rain.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time working on employee retention.
