Ineffective management riddled with lazy personnel make a very bad environment to work, learn, or study. Of the various instances I've been there, I've seen programs ineffectively staged, uncontrolled children running about, loitering miscreants, and employees bathed in the glow of their personal phones while scrolling social media on library computers. There have been multiple instances of waiting for an employee to wait on any customer while sitting at the desk meant to assist people. In one instance a customer was ignored while the employee sat and looked down at their watch for a full four minutes. Overall, if you're looking for inadequate resources, inadequate planning and programs, and poor professionalism, then you've come to the right place!
