Full-Time Employee:

An employee who is generally scheduled to work 40 hours each work week. The employee may be salaried or hourly and is eligible for all employment benefits offered by the Company. Actual hours worked each week will be partially determined by the weather and workload. Bearizona does not guarantee 40 hours of work every week of the year.

Application Process:

Applications must be completely (not one single blank line) and legibly filled-out and signed or they will not be considered.  A resume may be included, but it should not be longer than one page, and MUST accompany a completed and signed application.  Be sure to use your mailing address in your contact information, as the pony express has not been active in the area for some time, and follow-up correspondance may be necessary via the US Postal Service.

A note to parents/guardians/spouses: Only serious applicants should apply - by themselves.  Calling on behalf of applicants, filling out applications on behalf of applicants, or attempting to interview with applicants doesn't instill confidence with this employer that the applicant is a responsible or dependable future employee.  Bearizona Wildlife Park welcomes applicants of all ages and understands that the job finding process holds many teachable opportunities. We expect parents/guardians/spouses to be supportive, and encourage their applicant to demonstrate a level of independence and fortitude.

Bearizona Volunteers

Bearizona Wildlife Park offers a volunteer program for teenagers over the age of 15 and adults. Volunteers help maintain a clean and friendly atmosphere for park visitors by assisting the full time animal keepers, interpreting animal exhibit areas, interacting with families along the Discovery Trail and Fort Bearizona Mining camp, helping at special events, and maintaining the grounds. 
The volunteer program is designed to utilize and grow the skills, abilities and interests of each volunteer while assisting paid staff and serving visitors. The level of responsibility granted to volunteers is earned through training, service hours and testing. The time commitment is flexible.
We are currently accepting applications.  Applicants must be available to attend all training dates, and be available at least one full day per week.  A strong interest in wildlife and conservation is a must. Bearizona Wildlife Park is a drug and alcohol free workplace and is an equal opportunity employer.
Volunteer training dates:  April 22, 2012 and May 2, 2012 1-4pm. Additional dates will be set as needed.
