NYPD Traffic Agent LEVEL (Current Employee), Flushing, NYDecember 3, 2013
I worked for traffic for 3 years. The job pays little for the amount of revenue the traffic agents are creating for the city. Management pressures agents to write tickets. THERE IS NO QUOTA contrary to Popular belief. if you don't write tickets they'll make your life a living HELL.If you need the employment apply but don't stay long, seek other means – more... of employment in meantime. MANAGEMENT SUCKS, AND BENEFITS ARE GOOD IF THATS IMPORTANT TO YOU. – less
