Safe oriented, productive, educational.
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – August 15, 2015
Overall, Georgia Department of Transportation is a decent job to work for because you will learn and demonstrate safety at all times. You are required to have a commercial license or obtain a commercial license within six months of employment. Depending on your productivity, they may hire you full pay after your six months is over. Once you become full time, you are then recommended to take the T.I.M.S. tests in order to become qualified to apply for other positions within the Georgia Department of Transportation. The D.O.T. also has a "family" like environment so everyone shares a common goal. Although some employees may have a complaint about the pay, they are also willing to move up in position to reach higher pay. Education and great attitude with others at all shops will help bridge a great image to an individual because again G.D.O.T. has a "family" like environment.
Strong on safety measurements for employees, great opportunity to earn commercial license, and operate heavy equipment.
Low paying salary for skilled laborers, high insurance rates.
