Travel infrastructure for New York City
Station Agent (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 1, 2016
A typical day is the request of travel information and how many trips needed to travel to and fro. I've learned a lot about patience and that New York is a true melting pot. Management can use some emotional intelligence when it comes to the mental and emotional state of its staff. Co-workers are a cordial when it comes to work ethics. The hardest part of the job is the verbal and emotional abuse sustain from customers and management.The most enjoyable part about the job was meeting new people from all cultural backgrounds.

Great title to have if you're busy with other things in your life.
Traffic Checker (Former Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 6, 2016
Being a Traffic Checker, you can either stay part-time, or move on to full-time work. If you're in school, or have a second job, they'll work with you if you're up front about it. The pay is great especially if you're coming from working part-time in retail. Some of the hours are long, but who complains about making too much money?
Pros
Free bus/subway fare, benefits after 90 days
Cons
You may end up working outside in the rain or snow

Structure Supervisior (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 21, 2016
This job has giving me the security in life that many people strive for. Your not gonna get rich in life here but it will give you that sense of security, not while employed there but when you are retired. There is a lot of promotional advantages working for this company and I took a chance on becoming a supervisor and used the skills I knew before taking the position to try and be the best I can be at this position.
