Forester
Forester (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYMarch 6, 2018
Working for Parks is not what I expected, very poor management.
A lot of favoritism. The workers are great the management is awful, they put people in management that don’t know how to manage people. The higher ups put their friends in positions they cannot handle. Very disappointed with this job. Nothing of what I expected,
there are not many people that stay in the position for long.
A lot of bureaucracy.
