Willingness to Work With Animals

The following represent the four main categories of animals we commonly have in our store (although "special guests," who do not fit neatly into one of the categories, can show up at anytime!), plus there's The Jungle, our own special exhibit:

Our employees must be comfortable around all our animals, be able to handle them gently with a great eye for the best care, and be willing to help feed and otherwise care for them.

There's plenty of opportunity to gain great experience, and it's true that there's "never a dull moment" at Walter's World!
