Great people but hard work
Animal Husbandry Technician (Current Employee) – Harrogate, North Yorkshire – 15 September 2017
The hours can be long and the work stressful, especially if you are working weekends. You work one in three weekends with no time back during the week, which can mean you work for 12 days in a row. Normal day is 7:45 to 16:00, weekends are 7:30 up to anywhere from 13:00-17:00, whenever the work is done.
The people are fantastic, they are what keep you going through the day. There is a great social side to the job with lots of birthdays and parties organised.
You can get lots of qualifications if that's what you're there for. Progress as far as you like. Management is hit and miss, some good some bad.
Great social scene, canteen and vending machines onsite, great staff, working with animals
long hours, stressful work at times, management can be useless
