Sales Yard Rd (Current Employee) – Prosser, WA – June 30, 2018
we plan a moth in advance what we are going to do, depends on what equipment we are able to use during certain parts of the year because it is all shared through the state. Most important for us are accidents and potential hazards on the state routes. safety is always number one and when working on the road at any certain time we have to follow the M54.44. to make sure we are up to osha standards. the crew i work with is great, Management on the other hand makes it difficult to work at times. best part of the job is helping the public.
4-10s and good benefits, paid leave and vacation
nothing is ever finished, management likes to bend the rules in there favor, i want fair envoiroment

Transportation Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Union Gap, WA – February 23, 2019
As a female working in construction I was paired off with a female to mentor me. She was less than excited to have gotten stuck with me, however, so I was kind of pawned off on other inspectors all summer. I had hoped to have more responsibility but I mainly got to observe. I honestly felt unwanted but still I learned so much and I thought the people were very down to earth and intelligent. I think I would have enjoyed the summer if my mentor spent some time actually talking to me and training me to do things all the other interns were learning. That part made me frustrated the whole time. The pay and benefits are awesome when working for a federal agency. I am trying to get hired on now that I have a degree but it is a very competitive process.
Washington (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 29, 2019
WSDOT is currently firing and running off all ot the employees close to retirement replacing them with kids right out of college with no skills and little knowledge. The people are brow beaten, bullied, harassed and hide in their cubes, eyes always down not to be noticed.
HR is vicious, Managers aren't supported, unqualified Directors.
