  • Abstract:
    "This study provides information about the experiences of trainees, contractors, Montana Department of

    Transportation (MDT) field staff, and other state DOT staff in their state’s On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program.

    Obtaining this information is an important step in MDT’s process of monitoring the quality of the OJT program,

    and enables MDT to report this information to the Federal Highway Administration and to the contracting

    community. Bureau of Business and Economic Research (BBER) at The University of Montana-Missoula

    administered questionnaires to individuals involved with the OJT process to gather this information. This study

    consists of four parts: a survey of Montana OJT program trainees, a survey of Montana contractors who

    participate in the OJT program, a survey of MDT field staff who play a role in the OJT program, and key

    informant interviews with selected state department of transportation (DOT) staff from the western United

    States who are involved with their state’s OJT program. Trainees in the Montana Department of

    Transportation’s On-the-Job Training Program are generally very satisfied with the program. A majority of the

    contractors interviewed (55.6%) rated the quality of the OJT Program overall as good, while about one-third

    (33.3%) rated it fair, and only 11.1% rated it poor. Two-thirds of MDT staff (66.7%) rated the overall quality of

    the OJT program as good, while one-third (33.3%) rated it fair. Of the state DOT employees interviewed, most

    viewed the overall quality of their state’s program favorably."
