CDOT Hiring Snowplow Drivers, Road Maintenance Workers Now to Prepare for Winter

Filling 100+ positions to help plow and maintain roads

You might not be thinking of snow, but CDOT is. This fall, as always, CDOT is looking to hire both permanent and seasonal full-time and part-time snowplow drivers, and road maintenance workers across the state. Hiring has already begun, with most positions starting in November.

Hiring Across the State

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 Colorado, as well as heavy equipment operator and heavy labor experience. Certain positions also offer a housing allowance and additional pay for remote locations.

Trainee Positions in the Denver Metro Area

In the Denver metro area, CDOT also has available several temporary trainee positions that do not require a CDL. These positions will give motivated individuals a foot in the door with CDOT through hands-on, real-world experience in road maintenance. In addition to offering on-the-job training, CDOT may help these individuals obtain their CDL certification.
