I worked at Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission as an intern (More than 3 years)
Very friendly environment. Learned a lot of unique skills. Worked weekdays only on a 7-3 shift which allowed me to get home and still feel like I had a lot of my day left.
Can sometimes become monotonous. The general bureaucracy can become frustrating at times; orders can change from week to week seemingly without consultation from the employees they are meant to direct.
Advice to Management
More transparency for employees. The rumor mill gets stirred up pretty easily when there isn't clear and concise information from the top.
I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.
I saw that the PTC offered summer jobs to local college students. I submitted my application in December as I was certain the position would fill quickly. Around April I received a call offering me the position and telling me where I would be located. For the following summers I simply repeated the same process as they claimed that they did not simply "rehire" former summer employees. Rather, you had to apply every year.
