It was a pleasure working at TXDOT

Intern (Former Employee)
Pharr, TX

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

ProsGood 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

Consnot 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 Senior ManagementNeeds to supervise staff more, make sure they are working...Handle workers more efficiently

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

TxDOT has been a good place to work for over 20 years.

Special Project Coordinator (Current Employee)
Mesquite, TX

I have been working at TxDOT full-time for more than 10 years

ProsOpportunities for growth for those who work hard. Relaxed atmosphere and easy to balance work with family. Great paid holidays.

ConsAgency is undergoing major change so morale is low. Benefits have dwindled over the years. Technology is antiquated. Pay can be low for new hires.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep communication open. Employees want to know what to expect.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
