  “I was an intern with NDDOT for two years before I became a full-time employee. I like working here because there are great people in the organization. There are a lot of informal mentors. People are always willing to help out and I am never afraid to ask ques­tions. I also really like the highway work. The job offers a lot of variety. I also like the flex hours. I get to work four nine-hour days and take Friday afternoons off.”

“As a young engineer, it is important for me to experience the many aspects of the construction industry. I like working as a field engineer with the NDDOT because of the variety of work and the chance to observe an endless number of construction practices.”

  “I worked as a temp before I joined NDDOT full-time. While I was a temp, I really liked all of the people who I worked with. I just liked the atmosphere. In my job now, I like that I get to see every aspect of the construction of a road­way from the beginning to the end of a job. There is always something new to do every day, and never time to get bored. There is such a variety of jobs here that there is really a place for anybody.”

“The ND Department of Transportation offered me a position right after I graduated from NDSU with a B.A. in Civil Engineering.  Since I’ve begun employment at the DOT, I have found the working environment to be positive.  All of my colleagues are optimistic, goal-oriented, and are always willing to lend a helping hand. I also see that there are numerous opportunities for professional growth for myself in the future.  The NDDOT has offered me a great work experience and is a wonderful employer.”

“The NDDOT is a very family orientated organization.  They are very supportive and the family health insurance and other benefits are wonderful. They make planning for retirement easy.  The time off that is allowed is very nice to have and is great for my family as well because if something were to happen, they wouldn’t have to worry about the financial aspect of not receiving a paycheck.  The flexibility of using your creativity and the people that I work with are supportive. We work as a team on our construction projects and this teamwork allows everyone the ability to spend time with their families.”

“I like working on the construction crew, because we are building something the public can use on a daily basis. I love to work outside and I’m learning a great deal from some of the best people in their field. Building bridges is a challenge. You have to do it right the first time; there’s no room for mistakes. I love the work I do and the people I work with. It is a great learning environment.”
