Great People and Great Benefits, but Scheduling needs work
Radio Operator (Current Employee), Middletown, PAJune 28, 2013
Pros: compressed salary scale; great benefits; great people
Cons: little opportunity for advancement; rotating days off
Great benefits!

Compressed salary scale enables you to start at a higher rate of pay than comparable jobs, and speeds up advancement to the top of the scale within a few short years. However, the trade off is that comparable jobs have a higher pay scale Maximum long-term.

My schedule results in rotating days off which allows for one weekend a month – more... off, but the trade off is long stretches of work days. Would be better if schedule included either 10 or 12 hour options. There is limited opportunity for advancement.

The people and management are great! – less

Not too bad if you don't mind sitting in a booth for 8 hours a day
Intern (Former Employee), New Stanton, PAMay 29, 2013
Great place for an internship! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Important to be precise and keep track of money coming through your toll, because you have to pay the difference if you come up short!

Good work atmosphere
Test Driver and Ticket Systems Auditor Temp (Former Employee), Middletown, PAJanuary 30, 2013
Pros: free lunch in test lanes
Cons: looking at numbers all day with minimal breaks, temporary position
I learned how the toll booth software is tested and how to audit. My co-workers were very helpful and answered any questions I had, For the most part, the work day went quickly. Looking at numbers all day was difficult because after awhile they all started to look the same. There was a sense of accomplishment as the packets became fewer.

My experience at the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commision
Toll Collector (Former Employee), Bristol, PAJanuary 25, 2013
Pros: helping people, getting paid
Cons: long hours and work days
A typical day at work included handling money from drivers, giving out directions and be friendly to drivers. I learned how to nicer to people. Management was pretty good and helpful, same with the co-workers. The hardest part of the job was trying to help drivers get to places I have never heard of before. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping – more... people. – less

Easy job with ok benefits but bad management
Equipment Operator, Inventory (Former Employee), Plymouth, PAOctober 16, 2012
Pros: easy work. good job for slackers to hide. good pay
Cons: management, bums
Not hard work. Must be politically connected to work there
or advance. Too much micro managing by bosses that need
to prove they are the boss. Lots of employees who are bums
and do nothing all day and its expected that the few of us that
are good at our job are supposed to make up for the bums lack
of work output. Your job is only secure if your politically
connected – more... and the union (Teamsters local 77) is worthless and
is in the turnpikes pocket and does not stand behind the
hard working employees but protects the politically connected
bums. – less

Loved my work
Toll Collector (Former Employee), traveled between Carlisle-DowningtownSeptember 14, 2012
Pros: it was all pros
Cons: weren't any cons
Customers were great, meeting different people every day. No two days were the same. Enjoyed my job very much. Hardest part of the job was nothing. There was always an answer for every problem, all you had to do was think.
