Grove Announces PennDOT Winter Employment Openings
HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will again sponsor a winter maintenance program for 2012 for a variety of positions to supplement the permanent workforce, Rep. Seth Grove (R-Dover) said today.
“The PennDOT winter employment program is a wonderful opportunity for seasonal employees who are without work over the cooler months or for anyone looking for temporary work this winter,” said Grove. “Some of these positions pay as much as $17 per hour, so these are good-paying jobs.”
Positions will be available for temporary equipment operators, mechanics, trades helpers, clerks and typists. The program runs from September through April.
The majority of positions are Transportation Equipment Operators (TEO). Applicants for this position must have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL), with the airbrake restriction lifted and six months of experience in the operation and maintenance of single-chassis trucks with the ability to operate a manual transmission. Applicants will be tested during the interview process.
All potential candidates for TEO and mechanic classifications are subject to the Federal Motor Carrier Regulations that require pre-employment drug tests and random drug and alcohol tests. In addition, driving records will be checked for verification of license information.
All interested applicants must apply online by the close of business on Wednesday, July 25.
