Temporary jobs are referred to as limited term employment (LTE). While
limited term employment does not automatically lead to or enjoy the
same benefits as permanent employment, these positions provide
valuable work experience and an opportunity to explore different
permanent job and career options at WisDOT.

Positions vary in duration and work hours. For example, you
may work half-time for one year, full-time for six months or
some other combination of hours depending on program needs,
budget constraints, or seasonal demands. Note: not all LTE

Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) participation. Once a LTE
has worked for 600 hours within a one-year period, they begin

they become eligible to enroll in the state health insurance

participation you become eligible for state participation
(partial premium payment).
LTEs are not paid for vacation, sick leave or holidays (unless
asked to work holidays).
