Administrative Departments

    The administrative departments tend to be those that support Co-op City by providing services to RiverBay Corporation rather than to the shareholder directly.  

    Although shareholders deal directly with members of the Sale's department and read the results of the work done in the Co-op City Times, much of the work done by departments such as Automotive, Finance, Human Resources and Purchasing are invisible to the shareholders, but essential to the smooth functioning of the corporation.
