    Pros

    They are always willing to work with school; tests, professor office hours, studying, time-off.
    Great pay for an internship.
    Nice people, will give you as much training as you need.
    You can become good friends with your fellow interns as well as engineers.
    Great to put on your resume, creates excellent references.

    Cons

    After you learn all there is to learn, some might think it would be tedious and boring.
    Since WSDOT is a government job, you don't automatically get a job offer after graduation, you must apply and interview and go through the whole process. A full time job is not a guarantee.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing! Good job!

    Interview

    Panel interview. Very challenging questions. Three panel members. Panel was followed by a computer test with Excel and Word. (unexpected) Very professional. Not selected, but they did call to inform me. They were very pleased but went with an internal candidate.
