If you don't mind a little office politics, and a few apathetic co workers and having to work hard at times in unusual and sometimes dangerous situations then it's a good job, a job is what you make of it.
Pros
Good pay, OT available
Cons
Some developments are very hi crime locations

My assistant manager and manager need to be fired. They have no regard for anyone other than themselves. They sent me into early labor. My assistant manager told the reasonable accommodations person one then did the opposite. The manager suggested that the assistant manager give us memos for not being able to reach tenants.

The treatment i faced being a caretaker j was a horrible one it was very dehumanizing and degrading and it’s a job that I will never except as an African American woman again it reminds me of being a slave in the Cotton-field.

Not a good job. Not treated well by residents. Horrible pay. Nobody was there to back you up if you ever found yourself in a bad situation with a resident and the union dc 37 never backed me up if I got in any negative situations which is opposite of what they are supposed to actually do
Pros
Working close to home
Cons
Horrible pay

NYCHA was one of the best jobs that I had. I was involved with the community. They allowed me to explore my ideas and implement them. Remember some of the supervisors there have swelled heads. Acknowledge them and know your place. You will go far.

Caretakers word doesn’t matter so stand up for yourself and involve the union even if they don’t do they job. The job may be a handful but just try to follow the rules at all times.

While working for the New York City Housing Authority I had the responsibility of performing income and employment verifications for rent determination, as well performing case reviews, processing lease renewals and rent changes. Another one of my duties was to interview residents; investigate and verify information.

working for nycha was a lot of work. You have to keep your head down and mind your business at all times. The work is heavy loaded but once you get through the day you would be ok.

Company much better than the post office. They atleast try to have training for new employees. Have good instructors and lots of buffers. Pay not bad and they give you all the supplies you need.
Pros
Computers system up to date not cheap with supplies
Cons
Hire too many ghetto folks lose a ton of money from tenants not paying rent hire real dumb people

I was a Groundskeeper for TodtHilll Houses, Staten Island New York. It was an awesome job, and the employees treated me like family.My coworkers pitched in to help if there was difficuty.A typical day consisted of keeping the grounds clean and beautiful. The work was easy and I really enjoyed the company as a whole.It was a great job opportunity and I learned a great deal about groundskeeping . Thank you, NYCHA.
Pros
Great Job, good people!

Fast pace work environment which I truly enjoy but the work-life balance is challenging to secure. Given that its an organization in transition there is the aches and pains of growth and transition of old culture and the new culture the organization is attempting to establish.
