Civil Engineer (Highway Engineer) (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – September 26, 2016
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.
Licensing Specialist II Motor Vehicle (Current Employee) – Bismarck, ND – January 13, 2019
The DOT is a great place to work. Great management team and coworkers. There is always someone there to help and assist you with questions. There is never a dull day and there is room to grow. Management Team supports you and gives you the tools needed to be successful.
Human Resources Technician - Georgia (Current Employee) – Jesup, GA – September 10, 2018
This is a great opportunity for those entering the workforce for the first time. The GDOT has great benefits but they are competitive with the private sector. The GDOT does provide training and advancement opportunities.
Air Traffic Control Specialist (Former Employee) – Nashua, NH – December 3, 2018
As an air traffic controller for the Federal Aviation Administration you are mostly insulated from typical government office politics...mostly. It's a great job and it's important. The money at the higher level facilities is excellent. The schedule is brutal. Expect to work nights, weekends, holidays, overtime, and expect to do it for your entire career as a controller. It is hard to get days off in short notice. To summarize, it's the best darned job you could ever hope to do-if you are cut out for it. If you aren't, it'll be horrible and you'll probably wash out or bid into a staff or supervisory job. Just remember where you came from if you do.
Challenging work, Interesting work, Important work, Well-paid work
Work environment is one to learn and grow in. Management is great and the culture of the workplace is diverse and experienced. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with all the updates. But even that presents a good challenge for growth.
Contract Specialist (Former Employee) – Salem, OR – June 12, 2018
It was a tough work environment, the culture was quite political, and micro-management styles were undermining and belittling, some customers were openly hostile and unprofessional. Others were professional and collaborative. But seems as if I was assigned to most of the hostile customers. I realized that I was not a good fit for that department, and resigned. My manager was fair and reasonable, but due to political culture, his hands were often tied (observation).
Good assignments, teleworking opportunities, helpful and knowledgeable coworkers, free parking, good benefits and pay. Had reasonable manager.
A couple of Team Leads undermined me in meetings, hostile customers, personal boundaries not respected, hard to contribute to team because cliques.
BRIDGE OPERATOR (LEVEL 2) (Current Employee) – New York, NY – December 9, 2018
A good place to work, good benefits, great hours, and great people but the only bad thing is if you want to go different departments you better know someone there that's the only way they will hire you this is what I see from the first place I started working here. Overall a good place to work
Airframe Structures Engineer (Current Employee) – Hapeville, GA – April 2, 2018
Its what you can make out of this job. You have to find internal pleasure trying to help people comply with safety regulations. Management culture is political .. Friends of friends are advanced. Technical folks have limited opportunities to advance.
Transportation Assistant (Former Employee) – Des Plaines, IL – August 8, 2018
A typical day consisted of reviewing emails and assignments. There was always something new to learn and the atmosphere was very professional. The job was fairly easy as I had done this job for 7 years at another location. The best part of this job was meeting new people and learning of their backgrounds.
Financial Manager (Former Employee) – Carson City, NV – July 26, 2018
Corrupt unethical culture. It is not a good environment for professional people. the entrenched self-serving bureaucrats treat the organization as their personal bank to finance excessive and unnecessary travel..
Security Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – August 9, 2018
Workplace success is a byproduct of how well employees work together and accomplish goals to help the organization grow profitably. Sustainable success is a function of how well the employees know each other’s strengths and utilize them rightly to maintain momentum. In the most fluid and high-performing workplace cultures, the differences in people, their cross functional roles and department duties and the dynamics of hierarchy and rank are perfectly in sync. Simply put, it’s about how the “dots connect” within the workplace’s interconnected field of diverse personalities, capabilities and skills sets, competitiveness and expectations. What still remains unknown in most workplaces is the dot each employee represents.
Air Traffic Controller (Former Employee) – Olathe, KS – April 9, 2018
The environment is very stressful and competitive but the management is well aware of that and does what they can to remedy it there are lots of ways to de-stress when you are on a break, like a ping pong table.
