The San Diego Housing Commission offers employees the flexibility needed to balance work and family.
Pros: worked a 9 hour day and was off every other friday.
Cons: too many levels between management and line staff.
A typical work day as an Housing Construction Specialist included calling and receiving calls from clients regarding the progress of their housing rehabilitation projects, inspecting owner properties, creating work write ups, preparing contracts and paying vendors.
I learned the dynamics of the construction industry and how to interact with a diverse clientele.
The management and co-workers were quick to assist when called upon to do so.
The hardest part of the job was the bureaucracy that hindered the benefits to the clients.
The most enjoyable part of the job was assisting clients to make their homes healthy and safe.
