Slow, monotonous, secure
Fingerprint Technician (Current Employee) –  West Trenton, NJOctober 12, 2018
Same thing every day, a lot of women coworkers, with bosses that use their title to put all the work on the employees under them so that they don't have to do anything. The workplace itself was outdated. The job itself was boring, but easy work for decent money.

Emergency Dispatcher (Former Employee) –  Totowa, NJMay 31, 2018
A typical day at work would consist of monitoring 30-40 trooopers and also taking emergency and non emergency calls. I considered that workplace to be very intense because of the fact anything could happen at any time; however, as the dispatcher we have to be prepared for it. The hardest part of the job was balancing out the task at hand, between the troopers and the general public.
