It's a pretty easy job all in all but if you like having a life outside of work then this isn't for you
Highway Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – September 14, 2018
A typical day is fairly straight forward and honestly very easy. The only time the job gets frustrating is because of the winter but that's largely because people who have been there for years for some reason forget what to do when the time comes around. They also don't exactly care for people who have a life outside of the job, so if you say no enough times for OT be prepared to almost never receive a call again for OT till winter, and then be prepared to be worked like a slave. The state will tell you in your brief that you'll get x amount of hours of sleep during the winter, its a lie, you'll be lucky if you get 4 hours of sleep in the middle of a storm so you best be willing and ready to plow snow for about 24 hours straight, longest I did was roughly 22.
zero life outside of work, life must revolve around the state
