3 start overall
Fun job , you always learn something new. The bad part is that some management is difficult to work with , they make work a hostile environment. They only hire people who live in NYCHA, and most workers don’t do their jobs they hide out

Excellent workplace
It was great working with New York City Housing. Wonderful schedule and I really appreciated the breaks they gave us between time. They didn't overwork us, now that's a good thing. I finished work by 4 PM to have more time with my family.

Cool place
It was a cool place to work, you have to stay on your safety game though ( wearing protective cleaning gear so you won't pick up any diseases, & wear proper back gear to protect yourself against sprains & stuff like that due to heavy lifting or falling)
I would even return if I had the chance!

They Really have to many people doing to many things that they don't know anything about
its a great job if you can get past everyone placing blame on the next employee. I've learned while i was there they really are unorganized and need major help. i was hired seasonal and the program i was in ended so my job did also. without a civil test your very expendable.

Working at NYCHA
Working in NYCHA taught me that I can handle up to 20-30 calls in a hour. And to be patient with the tenants and try my very best to help them live in a better environment for themselves, neighbors, & families

Garbage
Housing get rid of you even if you are a skilled worker. Unions dont fight for you. They pocket and survive off of you. And dont let them switch you to local dc37. Temp worker. No one will fight to keep you. Worse Eoe. Garbage is what you are.

I loved working for housing but i was injured and treated unfairly when it was. Time for me to return to work.
It was a great experience ive bern trying to go back but just not in the field. I'd rather be inside and get that office experience. I wouldnt change my experiences because it was worth it.

Productive and fun work place
Dealing with tennats can get a bit challenging but doing your best to help them is what maters, you always want to put yourself in their shoes and consider their frustration.

Worst City Job Ever
They pretend to care about the people living in housing and never fix things! I left because I do care about others.. Forget about management crazy out for themselves and only give good shifts if they like you no chance for advancing.

Nycha
NYCHA, for a first working experience, was one of the best jobs I could ever ask for. Me and my boss were very close after the first week, the environment was pleasurable and everyone respected eachother.

Horrible leadership and even worse management
Work that could be simplified and made more manageable if the individuals delegating staff and resources, were competent, listened to those out in the field and tried to be team player not a dictator.

Ughhh disgusted
Working for NYCHA is horrible. I've been here for the past 20++ yrs it gets worst each passing day. Co-workers are snakes and the supervisors are incompetent. The only great thing housing have given me are my health benefits.

High turnover rate
My experience at NYCHA was challenging as the working culture was impacted by the people who I was scheduled to train under, left the company. It was difficult to learn the system, given the lack of management support and supervision.
