Police Officer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 4, 2016
A typical day at work is learning how to enforce the law and deal with the public. I learned to have tough skin and how to communicate better. I am a peoples person and love dealing with my co workers. Hardest part of the job is leaving the job at the end of my shift. The enjoyable part of the job was saving lives and making a difference.

Lieutenant Commanding Officer, Leadership Training (Former Employee) – One Police Plaza New York, New York 10007 – October 22, 2015
There is no such thing as a typical day in the NYPD. I have learned how precious life is over the last twenty five years. Management can be demanding and I have worked with some great people. It is very hard when a fellow officer is killed in the line of duty. This is offset by the support that is always given by peers.

Police Officer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 13, 2015
A typical day in the NYPD is a long and stressful day with a lot of exciting but dangerous stuff happening around you. It may start off slow and in a few minutes everything around gets crazy. A lot of angry people, a lot of emergency calls to attend to and so let little time to manage them in. I learned a lot from the NYPD, including discipline, courtesy and respect, knowing how to calm a person under pressure and not letting personal feelings get the best of you. The hardest part of the job is trying to answer to everyone's problem in a manner in which they do not think you not giving their problems priority over another.
Probationary police officer (Former Employee) – college point, ny – October 13, 2015
Working for the NYPD was a great experience. Everyday is different. I got to learn more about the task and the responsiblities of a police officer. The most enjoyable part of the job getting hands on training for fire arms and drivers training. The hardest part of the job was the hours.
Internship (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – October 9, 2015
When I Intren at the 46th precinct I have learned a lot about legal research. I also learned how many trainings a police officer has to through. They have a lot of things for you to learn as working on and sorting out the traffic violations.
Crossing Guard (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 8, 2015
I would arrive at my post mostly 7:30am and check the traffic lights, and make sure the cross walks are clear. As the children would come to the crosswalks I would cross them with the light. At times I would have to move traffic to clear up the crosswalks, so the kids could cross safely.

School Crossing Guard (Former Employee) – Ozone Park, NY – September 18, 2015
I WORKED A 5 HOUR DAY 2.5 HOURS IN THE MORNING, AND 2.5 HOURS IN THE AFTERNOON. MY PARTNERS AND MYSELF WORKED AN EXTREMELY BUSY INTERSECTION JUST OUTSIDE KENNEDY AIRPORT. THE SCHOOL I WAS ASSIGNED TO WAS A K TO 8TH GRADE SCHOOL WITH OVER 1300 STUDENTS. I REPORTED TO THE 106 PRECINT, AND THERE WAS A SARGEANT WHO WAS IN CHARGE OF US. HE WOULD COME AROUND AND SIGN OUR MEMO BOOKS. THE HARDEST PART OF MY JOB WAS THAT SOMETIMES A LOT OF THE DRIVERS ARE VERY RUDE, AND DON'T WANT TO WAIT FOR PEOPLE TO CROSS THE STREET. THEY RUN THE LIGHT, THEY SPEED, AND MAKE ILLEGAL U TURNS ANYWHERE THEY PLEASE. I LOVED WORKING WITH THE STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY THE LITTLE ONES. I ALSO GAVE A LOT OF DIRECTIONS TO THE TOURISTS WHO WOULD COME FROM THE AIRPORT.
I WAS ABLE BE HOME DURING THE MORNING TO CARE FOR MY MOM AND TAKE HER TO HER DR APPTS
BAD WEATHER......SNOW, RAIN, COLD, WE HAD TO BE OUT THERE
Auxiliary Police Sergeant (Promoted) (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 17, 2015
This job is very rewarding and can sometimes become overwhelming if you don't know how to handle it.The most enjoyable pat of the job is coming to work with highly committed officers each day of my tour.
The job takes a toll on your body, with all the standing it is not very productive. Have no protection out in the streest while crossing the children.
School crossing guard (Former Employee) – Brooklyn – September 11, 2015
Typical day at work is hard if you do not like standing for 5 hours, or like to deal with all types of weather. But you do have nice and pleasant co-workers. Some of the police officers are nice. Dealing with the public could get to you if you do not have a strong back bone. Other than this. the hardest part of the job is dealing with the bitter cold, the unbearable winters.
It was a great experience as a Criminal Justice Student.
Intern (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – September 10, 2015
All of the persons I worked with were older than I was but they were great, and I'm very thankful for the opportunity. My supervisor, a Lieutenant was great, she gave me great advise and was a good role model. I was her first intern and I think that I made a good impression on her.
