"Civil service can be a very rewarding job, but it's not for everyone. It's very stable employment, but bureaucracy doesn't leave a whole lot of room to develop outside of one's current role."

Student Assistant

"I have worked for the California Department of Transportation since April of 2018. I have worked in two different units, and both units were great to worth with. The employees were helpful and taught me how they work with engineering in their field. I have worked in Encroachment Permits and then for Traffic Operations. I was able to see the difference in work for each unit. It was easy to get along with and loved to catch up with employees as I would see them."

Senior SAP BOBJ Developer

"I have worked for Caltrans IT from 2012 to 2013 as a contractor with title Sr.SAP BOBJ Developer. The corporate office is located in Sacramento, CA. The great people, nice office environment, and flexible work hours was perks. The location is more commute friendly for employees using the Caltrans transportation train ( more lucrative is the discount on the monthly pass for employees). There is room for growth for the employees for enhancing new skills. The office space is well equipped with all the necessary artifacts.Would overall recommend to every one."
