    Pros

    You get a chance to feel that you are part of something with a real history of making life better for the people of Indiana. You are a true public servant, unlike your political masters. The benefits are decent enough to make up for the lower salaries.

    Cons

    Management is typically made of of inept politicians. "Where the hell did this guy come from?" is a question often asked when discussing political managers. The level of professionalism and technical knowledge among upper management began declining in the late 1980's and is at an all-time low now.

    Depending on the District or Division you work in, your opportunities for advancement can be limited. The are excellent in some Divisions but are almost non-existent in others. Districts are similar in their uneven opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The governor should appoint upper-level managers who have a background in the industry and the agency. Too many upper-level managers over the years have been failed bankers and former salesmen.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seymour, IN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seymour, IN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Indot in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Fair and relevant questions are asked. I have interviewed for several positions as I have moved up the ladder at INDOT and been successful in most, not successful in some. However, I have always felt like I have been giving a fair assessment and the correct results were achieved with each positions' hiring. The people have been intelligent and diligent with each hiring process. On the flip side, at the higher pay levels, I have seen a little bit of favoritism and unethical behavior with some questionable higher paid executives.
