Why I loved my job but hated the environment
Junior Zookeeper (Current Employee) – Mandai – July 8, 2016
In my opinion, a typical day at work would be a fun and productive day though it is tiring. I love my job as a Zookeeper however working there, you don't feel that you are entitled to the benefits there nor are you able to grow as a person or co-worker.
We are constantly reprimanded for the things we do based on "thinking out of the box" but are "encouraged" by the higher management to "think out of the box" which is very contradicting.
Besides that, you co-workers that slack off from work are not reprimanded but those who are constantly doing their job on the ball, well, their efforts are not recognized.
But all in all, what I loved most about my job are the animals I am able to take care from everyday, be it when they are healthy or sick, I love them all. They are the ones that gets me through the day at work.
free lunch, get to work with different animals
long hours, hard labour, salary too little, horrible co-workers
