PennDot Inspectors

If you are an inspector looking to hook-up with a consulting firm to be an inspector on a PennDot Project or Pennsylvania Turnpike Job, follow the link above to see others inspectors posting a summary about themselves. A place where you also can advertise/promote yourself for this type of work. You may use a fictitious name to talk about yourself to remain anonymous on the forum until you make contact with consulting firms that you feel comfortable with.

Consulting Firms looking for PennDot Inspectors

Consulting Firms looking for PennDot Inspectors to contact for available positions that you have, or upcoming projects you would like to contact perspective PennDot Inspectors to use on your project Statement’s of Interest.

Consulting Firms may feel free to post on the forum advertising your PennDot Inspector needs.

Consulting firm are also encouraged to advertize themselves on the forum with your actual consulting firm name and useable address and/or email address where PennDot Inspectors can make contact with you. As you know, with the new Labor and Industry rules for inspectors to maintain their unemployment status, they will need to have a long list of consulting firms to send their resumes to during a multi-month lay-off period over the winter months, or at the end of their current project in case they end up being laid-off for a period of time until their next project starts up.

This seems unfair that inspectors will need to make contact with other consulting firms during their lay-off period, but they are now required to make contact with few potential employers each and every week to keep their unemployment claim open in most cases, unless, in the case where you are laid-off, you get an official re-start date. This does not happen very often. Of course, inspectors may certainly send their resumes to other industries not related to inspection work, but many of you may want to sit out the lay-off period just waiting for your next project to start. Why take a chance sending your resume to potential employers in non-related industries, and how embarrassing would it be if they wanted to hire you at a much lower rate per hour than what you are making as an inspector. How would you explain that to the Unemployment Office that you turned down work while in the midst of your unemployment claim. 

This new Labor and Industry regulation is not fair to inspectors that want to continue working for their current employers. Think about it, as soon as you get laid-off, you will need to send your resume out to other consulting firms, of which you may get offers that you don’t like, and may have to accept to satisfy Labor and Industry.

And it certainly is not fair to the consulting firms that do business with PennDot and the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission. As soon as you lay-off your inspectors, they are going to be sending their resumes out to all of your competition just to satisfy the new Labor and Industry regulations.

So if all of you PennDot Inspectors and consulting firms would like to comment about the L&I Regulations, feel free to use the forum to do so.
