Chiefs DSNY Family Weekly V41

In Chief, DSNY Life, Medical, Night Plow by Sam0 Comments

My first experiences with this group was working in the snow room in Operation for night plow(1996-1997) before getting promoted, and that experience guided me in my perception of them through out my career.

Somethings you might not know about this group.

  • They put on their pants the same way everybody else does(well most of them), one leg at a time.
  • Believe it not, they too have stress put upon them to do their jobs.
  • There are good ones and bad ones.
  • They screw up too, but their screw ups are bigger.
  • They can suspend you on the spot!
  • Most will work with you or teach you if you don’t know.

Funny quotes told to me by Chiefs.

  • You’re not a Supervisor until you get a complaint”I must of been a real good Supervisor 🙂 “
  • Be pro-active! This was told to me right after I got a complaint for guess what? Being pro-active.
  • Good Job!

Final thought: They’re just like anyone of us trying to do a job!


It’s Coming, Be Prepare!
