I worked for The Port Authority for 32years, and advanced from a maintenance worker to a mid-level supervisor. It was an incredible experience, and I will always be grateful for it. I was able to raise a family, own a home and send my children to college, as well as provide me with a good salary and excellent medical benefits. That being said, at times it was a frustrating, petty, tyrannical and political organization. No raises for over 10 years!
Benefits, career advancement, interesting jobs.
