School Crossing Guard Positions

Available on the Lower East Side

New York City’s public schools will be back in session a week from tomorrow.  If you’re looking for part time work, positions are open in neighborhoods across the city for school crossing guards.

Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer is trying to get the word out about 80 new positions made available as a result of $1.14 in City Council funding. She helped advocate for the additional money for the NYPD’s crossing guard program. “These positions offer regular hours, increased pay, and the opportunity to help keep our city’s kids safe, every school day,” said Brewer.

See below for vacancies in our area:

  • 5th Precinct (Chinatown): 6 vacancies; Contact: (212) 334-0711, 19 Elizabeth Street
  • 7th Precinct (Lower East Side): 5 vacancies; Contact: (212) 477-7311, 19 1/2 Pitt Street
  • 9th Precinct (East Village): 2 vacancies; Contact: (212) 477-7811, 321 East 5 Street

Pay for crossing guards starts at $11.50/hour and increases to $13.49/hour after three years with health benefits. A news release from the borough president noted:

Now that crossing guard head count has been increased, B.P. Brewer will continue pushing for other improvements in working conditions, recruitment, and assignment for these vital public servants, including: increased pay, an end to summer furloughs, standardized central recruitment rather than recruitment through individual precincts, and an assignment process that accounts for both traffic data and community input.

Laborers Local 79 Apprenticeship Recruitment- April 2015

Local 79 Apprenticeship Recruitment

We are taking applicants for the position of Skilled Construction Craft Laborer. We hope to accept up to 100 Apprentices in the next 5-8 months.

Minimum Requirements

  • 18 years of age HS diploma or GED/TASC
  • Physically capable of performing the work
  • Pass a pre-entrant drug screening at your expense (provided you have already been selected into the program)

If you believe you are going to move in the next 12 months, please use 2 different addresses, one that is very consistent (i.e. a family member that hasn’t moved in many years and will let you know as soon as mail arrives). You will be mailed one letter to each address, at the same time. This does not give you two separate applications but it does eliminate a problem if you have difficulties getting your mail.

Fill out the form no different than if you were ordering a product online. When you complete the process, you will receive a confirmation email. Then you wait for a letter in the mail asking you to come to our site to schedule yourself for an interview. (This could take up to 18 months depending on economic conditions). Everyone that applies will be mailed a letter of invitation for an interview. These names will be drawn at random, when needed from the end of this recruitment through the next 6-18 months.

PLEASE NOTE: More applicants will apply than we can fit in our pool of candidates. If you do not get through this time, please understand. We hope work is plentiful and we can have recruitment again in a few months time.

Application Instructions:

  • Go to http://www.mttf.org/
  • Follow the links for Local Union #79.
  • You will see directions on how to apply.
  • Fill out the required fields. Do not add any information outside of the fields.
  • Applicants may only apply once during the 10-day recruitment.
  • If you anticipate moving within the next 12 months, please enter both your current address and future address (or a family member's address that is consistent). Letters will be mailed to both addresses at the same time.
  • When you complete the process, you will receive a confirmation email.
  • Wait for a letter requesting that you schedule an interview (this could take up to 18 months, depending on economic conditions).
  • Everyone that successfully applies will be mailed an invitation for an interview.
