Maintenance Technician II (Current Employee) –  WAJune 13, 2017
7 years of working for WSDOT were locked down with no raises and no steps. Had to go to collective bargaining to break that but we''re still 40% below the cost of living in the Seattle metro area. Employees cannot afford to live in the county they work in.
Cons
Low pay, no raises, consistently missed lunches and breaks, and more.

Maintenance Tech (Former Employee) –  Sprague waJune 13, 2019
People are great, equipment is awesome but pay sucks! Wish they paid better if live to retire grin state service. Supervisor is one of the best people I've ever met and co-workers are eager to help worth everything.
