Caretaker J (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 11, 2017
The day would start out well. The hardest part of the job was working with building compactors. The easiest part of my job was sweeping and mopping the floors and cleaning the elevators. I enjoyed talking to my attendants while working. Making sure everything in the building was safe and secure.
good benefits, and paid vacations, and good policies.
Housing Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 12, 2017
On any given day you can rest assure that you will be in contact with one of the residents in which your work day's will never be the same. The hardest thing in dealing with this position is dealing with different characters not only from the residents but your co-workers. You will be working a diverse population. Management can make some in realistic demands however, you must keep in mind that they have Supervisors also that expect progress just as they want the same from those that they supervise.
If you enjoy working with individuals from all nationalities and cultures you will enjoy this position.
Every day is like an adventure, you learn something new every single day.
Great benefits, health, life, pension, union backed, co-workers can become friends for life

Housing Assistant (Former Employee) – Bushwick, NY – May 1, 2017
NYCHA underpays, expects you to serve eviction papers for hours you're not on the clock did not pay overtime. Dead mice, leaky roofs, backed up toilets in office. There was a flooding in my office, no heat provided. It was a terrible place.
Tools and parts Clerk (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – April 18, 2017
there could have been better continunity with supervisors and employees, no one took time to show you what was expected of you or the work to be done. just a little information can go a long ways when the job require detail
I needed work and they hired me.
the projects are a dangerous place to work: roof tops and basement.
Project manager (Current Employee) – 90 church st – July 16, 2016
This agency is managed by people who are serving time to collect a pension. There is no sense of policy management, or policy at all when it comes to administering projects as a project manager. As a project manager you are the fall guy for every problem and you are ultimately responsible for every other departments actions. You are expected to keep these projects on schedule but have NO control over anyone else involved. Even though your are responsible management is constantly redirecting your projects (problem is they don't always know what there doing) without discussing it with you. Policy changes are constant, but are not communicated department wide so you end up doing things repeatedly because upper management never communicated form or policy changes. This agencu is truly the blind leading the blind. That being said, once you reconcile the fact the logic and rationale behavior are more elusive than the duck billed platypus you can find that civil service shuffle tempo and cost along like everyone else. Only problem is for new hires the pension is garbage and likely not enough to make you want to sell your self out if you like going to work to be productive. You'll be looking for your exit in 2 years. Good luck!
No one works hard so it's not hard to blend in if you want to slack
Management is petty and there is more gossip and clique behavior here than highs hook
