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.

Management sucks, have to wait 4 weeks to get your overtime pay! Superintendents dont like to give raises or supplies when needed. They dont give the overtime!

Awesome place to work!
I worked in the LAP Dept. Awesome management, great work/life balance, somewhat excellent communication! Wish they offered some sort of PTO to part time, but it’s still a great gig.

Need to show the equally
The Northern VA working environment appears based on race and discrimination
You will never be giving the chance to move up unless you are belong to the group

All foreign origins have 0 chance to rehire or move up

It's a job with very little advancement
✌🏾not really a great place to work for what you make. Pay is very low for the kind of work you that you do. Also moving up the the latter is really not going to happen unless you're lighter skinned and that's a shame to say but from what I have seen and heard that's what it is for the most part
Pros
You work for the state
Cons
Whatever you choose to think

Low paid contract work
Contract position for the state with poor management and low wages, no opportunity to grow and you will work shifts that are short people always. If you need a job go for it but long term dont bother.

Good and Bad
Like any business you have your good and bad employees. Problem is bad, lazy, unethical employees are not removed. And, amazingly, get promoted. Some really intelligent, hardworking managers were pushed out or miserable due to political maneuverings of upper management. Poor communication skills and language barriers made it difficult to work effectively. Some great long term employees with valuable experience and great work ethic. Unlimited training opportunities is a plus.

Very Fast Paced
The Snow duty/ climate duty and 12 hours Night shifts are not what U was looking for in my career field. These shifts could fall on your busy time in the office.

Interesting position however my ethnicity definitely out weighed my job performance
This job required you to detailed oriented and specific. You were required to separate planes from each other and restricted airspace. The job itself was definitely intense at times, however given the right training and time to apply this can be done without any error.
Pros
you work rotations average time on position wasn't too tenous
Cons
small minded people, weak union, location, expectations of employees during inclement weather
