Police Officer (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – February 11, 2017
A typical work day varied depending on the type of calls that cam in through 911 dispatch. I learned effective problem solving tools and conflict resolution. The work environment overall was fast paced and exciting. Supervisors were helpful and supportive. The hardest part of the job was the scheduling aspect. At any time, you could be required to stay late for excessive amount of time. Lots of overtime when a disaster strikes the city.

School Safety Agent (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 20, 2017
A typical day at work there is a lot of interaction with many different types of people. The day is continuously spontaneous, because things can happen at any moment and it is very unpredictable. I learn how to communicate with different types of people. I like to make sure that I say well organized to maintain order. It is typical a friendly environment and the children and staff are pleasant. The most difficult part may be having to disable a conflict between people or students, that can results in some form of law enforcement. The most enjoyable part of my job is the smiles on the children face when they come into school and say good morning and when some students thank me for securing there school.

Great career for Uniform Personnel, Lacking opportunity for Civilian Personnel
Senior Police Administrative Aide (Current Employee) – New York, NY – December 8, 2016
The New York City Police Department is an excellent employer for uniformed personnel. For Civilian employees, the possibility of promotion is available with the successful passing of Civil Service exams every four years. It can then take up to (2) two years to establish a certified Civil service list then up to an additional (4) four years for actual promotion. Although the benefits are outstanding, the possibility of career growth is extremely limited for Civilian titles.
Department is segregated by titles with limited opportunity of advancement for civilian employees.
