Zoo Hiring For Seasonal Positions

Posted: 02/06/2012
Knoxville Zoo is hiring friendly people to fill seasonal positions at their annual Job Fair, which will be held on Saturday, February 18, from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the Lee Congleton Conference Center, located on zoo grounds.

Seasonal positions are available in the zoo's Guest Services department, including retail sales, food service, ticket sales and camel and carousel ride operations. The zoo is also hiring for seasonal exhibit construction and general laborer positions.

First-round interviews will be conducted at the Job Fair. Some positions will begin work immediately and others will start on a staggered schedule throughout the late winter and early spring. Those interested in attending the Job Fair should come to the Ranger Station, to the right of the zoo's main entrance, for directions to the Lee Congleton Conference Center. Most positions require applicants who are 16-years or older, although some positions are available for applicants who are 15-years-old. Seniors and retirees are encouraged to apply as well. Weekend and holiday hours are required.
