Enjoyable
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee), Manhattan, NYMarch 28, 2014
The job wasn't much trouble even with the hot sun beaming down on us. Everyone came in on time did what they had to do throughout the day and that was it. Every now and then we would have a chat with the permanent employees about the job and how many years they've put in.

Very productive and informative working with other employees and residents
Community Assistant (Former Employee), New York, NYDecember 28, 2013
A typical day was very busy from the time you clock in til the time you clock out. I learned how to deal with different personalities. My co-workers where great. The hardest part of my job was saying good bye to my co-workers and residents when I relocated to South Carolina. What I enjoyed the most was working with the children and teens.

Lets just say I'm happy to have a job
CARETAKER OF GROUNDS (Current Employee), FAR ROCKAWAY NYOctober 20, 2013
Pros: healthcare benefits
Cons: everything terrible supervisors, short breaks, 12 day schedule, they act crazy if you want a day off
HOWEVER I'M UN HAPPY IN EVERY OTHER WAY. I WORK , 2 HOURS AWAY EVEN THOUGH I WORK IN THE SAME BORO, MY COMMUTE IS RIDICULOUS. TYRING TO GET CLOSER TO HOME SEEMS TO BE MISSION IMPOSSIBLE. NO COMMUNICATION OVERSIGHT OR REAL SUPERVISION FROM THE TOP DOWN THE ROCKAWAY DEVELOPMENTS ARE THE FORGOTTEN ONES. I HAVE 2 COLLEGE DEGREES AND AM PICKING UP GARBAGE – more... ALL DAY WITH NYCHA IT SEEMS WHO YOU KNOW IS MORE IMPORTANT THEN WHAT YOU KNOW, GUESS I'M DONE HERE, WORK 12 days straight before I get 2days off, yes I believe it's time to go. Nycha cares more about its uneducated tyrant overseeing supervisors then the caretakers who are the back bone of the company. – less

A fun experience
Consultant, Part-Time (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 14, 2013
Pros: have the opportunity to work with kids.
Cons: job was only part time.
While working for the New York City Housing Authority I was able to work with kids of all ages.
It was a fun atmosphere and I really learned a lot while taking care of kids.
It was mostly helping them with their homework and creating recreational activities.
During the summer, we had fun camps with daily trips to many parts of New York.
I was provided – more... with training and got a certificate that provided me with "After School Childcare Credentials." – less

Working for the nyc housing authority was a great work expereince. I worked as a skilled caretaker for nineteen years.During my employment I found that some developments dont have the proper work tools to get the job done.
