Jeanne C. Majors



I spent my entire 15-year career at LaGuardia Airport.

I was hired as a temporary from Kelly Services for a short period of time to work in the Airport Facilities Division as a clerical support person for three engineers. After about 3 months, I was encouraged by the team to apply for a permanent position with the PA. I decided to take their advice. They coached me in the preparation for the exam and typing test. They liked my work as a temp and kept my encouragement up. I passed the exam but had to retake the typing Test several times. I became discouraged but the engineers were persistent, and I finally passed, thanks to their help and guidance. I am forever grateful for the support that the AFD division gave me.

When a vacancy became available within the division, I was placed (due to my skills I developed while working with the engineers) to work as a support in the Central Heating and Refrigeration Plant in the Central Terminal Building. I handled the timekeeping, licenses, petty cash for three supervisors and the maintenance staff. It was like a one-woman show but I adapted rather well and I formed a good alliance with staff, tenants, and vendors. It was quite a rewarding experience.

My last and final assignment was working in the Police Emergency Garage as a support for the Public Safety Division. What a challenging and diverse environment to work in. Got a chance to meet several elected officials, dignitaries, Secret Service, etc. I enjoyed the camaraderie of the staff and the officers taught me a lot about protecting myself in public.

I had a most fulfilling career with the Port Authority.
