The Colorado Department of Transportation is beginning its search to hire permanent and seasonal full-time and part-time highway maintenance workers and snowplow drivers.
Most positions begin in November, with a starting hourly pay of $18.47, according to a CDOT press release. Permanent positions offer full benefits and promotional opportunities. Temporary seasonal positions generally last up to nine months. All require a Colorado Class A or B commercial driver’s license and heavy equipment operator and heavy labor experience.
Beginning this year, CDOT will allow the heavy equipment requirement to be gained by driving a forklift or bus. In addition, certain positions offer a housing stipend.
CDOT allows seasonal workers to apply for full-time maintenance positions based on experience gained while in the temporary position.
