RBC | You might not be thinking of snow, but the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is. As they do each fall, CDOT is looking to hire both permanent and seasonal full-time and part-time snowplow drivers and road maintenance workers across the state of Colorado. Hiring has already begun with most positions starting in November.
Positions are available in regions across the state, including the Denver Metro area, the I-70 mountain corridor and other mountain areas, the Front Range, the Western Slope and the Eastern Plains. Target cities include Crook, Denver, Idaho Springs, Joes, La Veta, Leadville, New Raymer, Silverton, Telluride, Vail Pass, Walden, Yampa and many others.
Permanent positions offer full benefits and promotional opportunities. Temporary seasonal positions generally last up to nine months and are a great way to gain work experience with CDOT. All positions require a Class A or B Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) for the state of Colorado, as well as heavy equipment operator and heavy labor experience. Certain positions also offer a housing allowance and additional pay for remote locations.
We live in one of the most beautiful states in the nation, and working for CDOT’s maintenance team is definitely not a desk job. As one employee aptly says, “every day’s an adventure.” Working for maintenance means doing diverse work to help the driving public while being out and about in all areas of Colorado.
Positions are competitive, and interested candidates shouldn’t wait until November to apply. Apply now by viewing the many opportunities with CDOT here: bit.ly/CDOTcareers2017.
