It’s a hit or miss. You can either have a great boss or the complete opposite. I am a current employee for the nm dot and the department itself is really great. Great hours, opportunity for advancement, great people. But like I said it’s a 50/50 chance that you either love it or hate it.

Depends on which department you are working for. Some departments are full of immature people and it’s like being in school all over again. I was working with people ranging in age from 23–50+ In an office setting and the majority were sad, disrespectful, immature and loved office gossip. Reported what was happening and not much changed. So I left because who wants to be around low vibration, twisted and manipulative people. Good luck if apply, hope for a job with sane, respectful and mature people.
