Administration puts their needs above all others. Offer special events for staff but do not offer position coverage for site dedicated employees ( lifeguards, childcare,etc) opportunities to leave their posts to participate. These events are also only provided on weekdays over lunchtime when admin is most likely to attend. No opportunities on weekends for other employees to participate.

Report answer

Management is often disorganized --they will often schedule poorly then not apologize. They require a huge number of inconvenient meetings for various reasons and often do not consider that these pry into family times at home. Many managers are not trustworthy about keeping promises yet they have pretty high expectations from their staff. Very little room for upward mobility since the place runs on part-time help.
