At Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) a lot of changes need to be made. Favoritism is a major problem as well as in-house gossip. I wouldn't recommend that anyone takes a job with CMHA. It is is an unprofessional place of employment that even practices sharing confidential information with outside sources.

I love the interaction with the clients/tenants. The potential to just learn something about them or from them can be very rewarding. A typical day at work can be just making sure everyone leaves with their questions and concerns answered with a smile. I learned to be better with face to face encounters. The workplace culture is mixed. I would not change that about CMHA. It teaches you to work with different personalities and temperaments. The hardest part of the job if you are not organized you can get behind in your workload.

CMHA was a wonderful place of employment. As part of the senior management team, there were opportunities to shape policy, staffing and future real estate to serve our clients by providing safe, decent and affordable housing.
Exciting place to work with lots of opportunities to advance.

My typical day at work was refreshing because dealing with different people at the counter made each day different, which helped me learn to deal with all different types of personalities. I was also able to promote into a management position where I was warehouse supervisor until my retirement and enjoyed my employees as well as my co-workers. The hardest part of my job was preparing reports for our accounts payable department and the most enjoyable part was being around my co-workers.
Enjoyed being Productive in Housing Low income families. Co-workers great to be around. hardest part of job was evictions. Most enjoyable was seeing the faces of clients when they received their first key to housing.
