What people say about working at Department of Transportation

  • Not a place for everyone

    3.0
    Not a place to everyone specially if you have family. Work hours are extremely long and you are at the mercy of your dispatcher, shipper and receiving customer.

  • great job

    5.0
    I was a contractor working over seas for the government I work with a lot of really good people, the only reason I left was to be with my family. I hated leaving because it was a great job.
