Pros: on busy weekends- happy hour, animal interaction, new knowledge on a daily basis, variable work environment with a variety of different positions to fill
Cons: minimum wage, supervisors can be lazy and disorganized, lack of praise and recognition for hard-work from upper-management, minimal opportunities for advancement
Worked in the parks department as an animal attendant. I got to see and work with a wide variety of animals on a daily basis as well as ensuring the safety of animal-human/ human-animal interaction.
Minimum Wage, with some limited opportunity for advancement. If you are hoping to make a lot of money, probably not the job for you - over-time is rarely given. But the experience is worth it at all times.
