Public Health Nurse I (Former Employee) – Staten Island, NY – November 4, 2018

Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – 421East 26street – November 10, 2018
The customer service specialist work answering calls all day. You get mandated to stay another shift if someone calls out. You get mandated to come to work if you are off and there short off staff. Weekend and holidays. You get split days off. No teo days off together. You are essential meaning snowstorms extreme bad weather you must be there. Not worth the pay. Very stressful. The director makes it unbearable to work there. Micro managed. Only minorities work there no room for growth. Should only require a high school diploma.
Office staff (Former Employee) – City – October 26, 2018
When I was employed with them it was who they like was getting promoted if you were on their bad list they would do so much injustice to you that you would want to resign which I did. The bosses love kiss behinds if you not one of the ones that send kiss their tooch you not going anywhere meaning no advancement. They abuse you verbally and mentally. I cried every day at that job. I use to go hid in the bathroom to cry and basically ask God to get me through the day for 2 years straight, and you would shed weight with the injustice they would do. I would not wish this place on my worst enemy that is how cruel, cut throat, they would also throw you under the bus if they have to by fabricating false data on you which they are judge on just to tarnish your reputation as a worker. Every one is for themselves. If you are a kind hearted person than this place is definitely not for you, but if you are one who likes to cheat, stab people and don't care how they are been affected then you are the perfect candidate by all means apply. You would do fine than.
The fact that you save hours when you work you can reuse them if you sick or need a day off.
COLLEGE AIDE (Current Employee) – Long Island, NY – October 10, 2018
Working part time is not worth it because of the amount of taxes that would be taken out of your paycheck. But it is a pretty okay place to work if you are lookig to gain some experience and update your resume
Trainer and Outreach Coordinator (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 8, 2018
The NYC DOHMH is a good place to gain practical experience on ways to conduct public health outreach. The workplace culture was not short of employee engagement woes, but employees collaborated to fulfill a common goal.
Cross collaboration with other city agencies, healthcare options, good community health initiatives
College Aide (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 8, 2018
Advance my administrative skills here. Learned a lot that pushed me to complete my Masters. Very competitive and somewhat soap operaish. Experience 911 while working here and the aftermath. Will never forget picking up the pieces literally and carrying on after.
Social Worker (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 8, 2018
Secure if you have civil service status. On edge if you do not. Mostly boring and not challenging enough. 9-5 and most of the time watching the clock. This is just my opinion coming in from a fast pace field.
Office Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 23, 2018
I worked with different agencies everyday mainly ACS. we monitor children's development. I answer all incoming inquires about the cases we open on a daily basis. I supervise the clerical associate. Ive worked with them for 13 years and i went from secretary to office manager.
Word Processor III (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 19, 2018
This position taught me many of the skills which I use today. When I was hired for this position I was pregnant with my first child. I selected the Health Department because of this. I was hired to work in the Immunization Department. A typical work day involved me fulfilling secretarial duties for three managers; one of who which was the doctor. I had to type, either transcribed or handwritten documents (which at times took extraordinary skills to decipher). I translated documents from English to Spanish; including the immunization booklet used in all health department clinics. I collected timekeeping documents from staff in all five boroughs and computed figures to be sent to payroll.
Community Coordinator (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 12, 2018
Work flow is very easy sometimes, dealing with vendors, and clients as well. We work for a lab that does test on a lot of viruses, therefore, we have to stay focus at all time to purchase any supplies needed.
Office Assistant Intern (Former Employee) – Long Island, NY – September 10, 2018
the environment is very relaxing, there are a lot of nice people who are willing to help you learn new things. The commissioner's goals for health equity matches the work thats put in everyday by the employees.
Special Consultant (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – September 5, 2018
Autonomy is something you will not get here. There is a lot of bureaucracy as expected. Very limited growth unless you change bureaus. It is very top heavy here. Leadership dictates your role. There are a lot of lower level staff that do amazing work but there is very little recognition as leadership takes most of the credit. This is a great place if you are late in your career or just starting out.
Leadership roles, lack of growth, very little promotions
Public Health Advisor (Current Employee) – Long Island, NY – August 2, 2018
NYC DOHMH might be a good place to work but I might not be in the right department. I don't feel challenged and there's no room for growth in my unit. I'm trying to branch out to other divisions but have not been successful as of yet. I'm hoping for a change soon.
