Line/Prep Cook (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BCMay 6, 2016
Enjoyed my 3 years working and living in Vancouver. Met so many awesome people made friends that will remain friends for years. Management seemed to change very often and employees rarely had opportunity to move up in the company. For experience and enjoying your job the Aquarium was a perfect pit stop.
Pros
Beautiful location, Good atmosphere

Always learning new things and meeting amazing people! The atmosphere is unlike anything I have ever experenced! You don't need to be a scientist to volunteer at the aquarium! Just bring what you offer to the table and you will be welcomed with open arms!

30 minute shifts with two 30 minute breaks
I learned a lot on how such a big place like the Aquarium works
Management is kind and friendly
Co-workers are the best
Hardest part of the is maneuvering around the facility
Most enjoyable part of the job is getting to go to the aquarium
