When you get there you are greeted by a friendly receptionist, both of you say good morning as you pass. you sit in the break room after putting your lunch in the fridge and wait for a daily briefing. briefing comes and goes so you do your morning stretches, because they are all about safety. The rest of the day just depends on what needs to be done for the day.
Pros
Safety focused work environment. non competitive work. long term
Cons
Little room to move up.

This was the worst place I worked as far as favoritism. If your buddies with the Supervisor and kiss butt then you will be fine. If not, you will face constant ridicule belittlement and given the jobs that nobody wants. The only positive perk about this job is working Monday - Thursday the majority of the time.

Too much favoritism, management is horrible. Brothers was working in the same office, and most workers were relatives/brothers. If they find something that they don't like it, they start to give you bad feedback on the smallest mistakes and they will not correct when the time they see you but tell it to the boss every mistake you make so will look so bad to the boss.

TxDOT is a great employer. They provide very decent benefits and fair compensation. There’s a sense of belonging, much like a big family. I enjoy working here and I will be at year six in June.
Pros
Benefits, flexibility

I had a good experience with this company for 6 years. But, the pay could be rough. Once a month is hard to learn to live with and budget.
Good place and enjoyable place to make a Career if you have a more open mind about learning and making an effort to add to your skills.

Even though the work I did was largely clerical, for a summer internship it was engaging and made me feel like part of a team. I learned a lot about public transportation funding, an area that is very important to the lives of Texans. They even sent me on an overnight trip to Houston! Very cool.

Everyone is expected to perform at the best. There's plenty of support to help you achieve departmental goals. Management can be tricky as there are office politics that play a heavy roll in decision making.

If you value professionalism and respect, an inclusive work environment, leadership who encourages professional growth, zero tolerance for gossiping/unnecessary drama and favoritism then this is not the place for you.

Work hard, be consistent, safe and honest. Working in all elements of weather but never extreme. Also a family environment though it is a business you're treated with respect.

The work morale at TXDOT in the department I was in was terrible. Management did not know what they were doing. The director of construction is not a nice person and since he has been with the company for so long Human resource did not want to follow through with the grievance that MANY people put against him. There is no advancement opportunity unless you are a Engineer. Worked a typical 8-5 pay was not good and you only get paid once a year however the benefits made up for it a bit.

The benefits along with the flexibility of the organization makes it a good place to land. If you are not looking for immediate advance and ready to learn and make a difference, this is the place to look.

No worries of job security. Pay is very low, health benefits are good, slow paced. Not pushed much to new heights. Raises, bonuses, and general appreciation of hard work isn't often expressed or reflected in compensation.

It’s was a great place when I started, now not so much. I am glad I left, I see how much more money other jobs offer. It’s great place to start and learn or work before retirement.

TxDot provides the opportunity to operate light and heavy equipment and the option to work overtime on an as-needed basis. Compensation is not as good considering the importance of the work as it pertains to highway safety where thousands of drivers can be affected.
