I worked at Missouri Department of Transportation full-time
The best thing to working for MoDOT was easily the benefits. Plenty of time off and a government pension. They will also allow opppurtunity for good experience.
The downside to working for MoDOT was the salary. Depending what part of the state you're in cost of living will vary, but you get paid on the same scale. There are some politics in the job as well.

But they were all very nice and informal.

Stuff like "give us an example of a time where you had difficulty working with someone and how did you handle it" They want you to tell them how you tackled problems in previous jobs or other activities to show that you are a problem solver. Very straight forward. Answer Question
