Strict and Great environment with kids
School Safety Officer (Current Employee), Brooklyn, NYOctober 13, 2014
Pros: greta job to learn from
It starts with morning entry greeting the children and their parents making sure kids get in school safely. I learned how to deal with parents that were irate because of something that happened with either their child and the teacher or another student.You work with different people and different attitudes. The hardest part is when a child has a fight and they commited a crime inside the school. I like the uniform and also dealing with the children to have them understand why school is important

Pros: compensation/benefits/job security
Cons: less promotions/career advancement
A typical day at work is problem solving and addressing the needs the employees and upper management. I learned to pace myself and multitask. I respect the management, and I want to always be considerate and a team player to my co-workers. The hardest part of the job is meeting deadlines, but it is also rewarding. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing vision of how my assignments makes a difference in the office. I want to make sure that my job contribution really counts and every day matters.

Rewarding and satisfaction fulfilled twenty year career
Police Officer (Former Employee), New York, NYSeptember 27, 2014
Everyday was different over my twenty year career as a NYC Police Officer. I never had the same day twice, typical days did not exist. I learned how to adapt and how to handle extreme situations with certainty and confidence. As a Police Officer in NYC I worked in many different work environments, sometimes extremely hostile environments which called for very intense concentration and extreme sensitivity. I found supervisors within the department to be fair ,understanding and very willing to help in a difficult situation. I always considered my co-workers to be my family. Without each other we could never perform our jobs with the skill that was needed.The hardest part of my job was not being able to help everyone all the time.The most enjoyable part of my job was being able to help a lot of people most of the time.
