Former Employee - Intern  in  Pharr, TX
Former Employee - Intern in Pharr, TX

I worked at TxDOT part-time for more than a year

Pros

Good pay for starting/entry level workers, nice pay for experience workers, preferably engineers and professionals...They have great compensation and benefits for employees and even entry level workers...Have the option of working inside and outside...high standards

Cons

not great pay for human resources people, and people that run the backbone....Dealt with rough relations with other employees...One time I received a threatening letter from a former employee, but he was not in the right mind, and so that is what my supervisor advised me to say and remember

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Needs to supervise staff more, make sure they are working...Handle workers more efficiently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does not live by the golden rule. Huge pay increases for you, employees get our jobs cut. We all work hard and to outsource us ostensibly to save money conflicts with the huge salaries you men are making. We are taking a pay cut and our employment with the state has been cut, while other (current) state employees get raises. Think about what that does to morale and motivation.
