Summer isn't even over, the kids aren't back in school and we haven't even handed out candy to trick or treaters yet. However, the New York Department of Transportation is looking ahead to a snowy winter.

The NYDOT is hiring 500 new workers to help with all the plowing.

Highway Maintenance Workers are relied upon to keep our roads clear in the winter, and perform essential maintenance tasks throughout the year in every county of New York State. This is an important and rewarding career.

Do you like to work long hours, plowing snow, keeping our roads safe....do you look good in orange?

This might be the perfect job for you! To apply as a highway maintenance worker trainee position go to https://www.dot.ny.gov/jobs. Positions are full time and permanent.
