The DOT job environment was satisfactory and professional. The benefits in the DOT motivates the employees to provide the best quality work. The most enjoyable part of my job was working in a all round technical work as part of my rotational assignment.

Air Traffic Controller (Former Employee) – JFK Tower, Queens NY – April 20, 2017
The job of Air Traffic Controller is great. The pay and benefits are great. Dealing with the incompetent management and supervision can be trying at times. The Federal Aviation Administration has one of the lowest employee satisfaction rates among all Federal Agencies.
Community Aide (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – April 18, 2017
If I could turn back the hands of time and work with the same group of women. I sure would and not regret one day of if. Women can be a challenge to work with. But, the group of women that I worked with were confident, strong, intelligent and very positive to work with.
I've learned a lot during the 6 weeks I was working at DOT. They're friendly people and everyone has each others backs. We would usually work on around 2 or 3 trucks, mostly sign trucks, and we would just get them ready for their inspections. A few trucks came in with electrical problems and we had one truck with a transmission problem.
Good opportunity for anyone that is accepted. Being the federal gov't this allows you to partner with the state for many projects. This will job will open ones eyes on how important transportation works.

Office Technician (Typing) (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – March 26, 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed this office aside from a few stability issues and short changes from the HQ office in regards to staffing. The people are a joy to work with. I wish I could have moved that office to where I now live.
Free parking and early schedules.
Headquarters lack of support and sufficient staffing
Fast paced, instant feedback, know your work makes a difference

A typical day means rotating shifts and days off, multi-tasking in a high pressure environment, every time the phone rings is an opportunity for your day to go sideways. The reward is knowing that your job matters and you truly make a difference.
