(Aurora, Ind.) – The Indiana Department of Transportation is about to hire snow plow truck drivers for 2017-18 winter operations.

Applications will be taken and applicants interviewed next Tuesday, September 19 at a job fair scheduled from noon until 5:00 p.m. at INDOT Aurora Subdistrict offices located at 10995 Marsh Road at U.S. Highway 50.

Job seekers should bring a valid Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), resume and high school diploma (or equivalent) and current medical examiner’s certificate.  A drug test will be administered.

Successful applicants may choose full-time seasonal employment or on-call status.  Full-timers will work 37.5 hours per week—plowing snow and working as a part of INDOT’s wintertime maintenance crew.  On-call drivers will work only during snow/ice events—patrolling and plowing state highways and interstates in the area.

Although seasonal employees do not receive state benefits, both full-time and on-call drivers are eligible for overtime pay.

A state employment profile can be created in advance at www.in.gov/spd, or INDOT personnel at the job fair can provide assistance.
