The Saint Louis Zoo has been involved in saving endangered species and their habitats around the world for many years - and with much success. We have witnessed dozens of cheetah births at the Zoo, hatched and reared endangered Micronesian kingfishers and ... more
The zoo follows all labor laws when it uses information gleaned from background checks and drug tests, Deschamp said.
"We don't automatically disqualify anybody based on what we see in background checks,"
Deschamp said about 1,100 people attended Saturday's job fair.
Despite the icy conditions, turnout was consistent with attendance at last year's first job fair.
In recent years, the zoo has held two or more such hiring events, although Deschamp said no other job fair is scheduled this year.
People interested in part-time work this summer can still apply online.
Deschamp said the zoo is looking to hire some of its seasonal staff early this year, so workers can be on call to work during those unseasonably warm winter and spring days when attendance soars.
"We feel like we have high standards, and we're not the right place for everybody," Deschamp warned a packed auditorium of job seekers.
