Gallery Interpreter (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 25 April 2018
While working at the aquarium you are constantly on the go. Your co-workers are very helpful as everyone wants to achieve the same goal. I learned a lot about the animals as well as the goals and priorities of the organization itself.
