I realize that the last thing you want to think about right now is cold, snowy, and icy weather, and the dangerous road conditions that will surely come with it - but the Indiana Department of Transportation has to think about things like that. INDOT is preparing now for winter, and what I'm sure will be a busy time for them. One way to prepare is to hire a bunch of drivers, and that's what they are hoping to do at an upcoming statewide hiring event.

INDOT Hiring Event Details

The one-day hiring event is scheduled for Thursday, October 28th from 10am-3pm (local time) at several locations throughout Indiana. INDOT is looking to hire full-time winter seasonal employees (pay is $20/hour) and on-call snowplow drivers (pay is $24/hour). There is also the chance to earn a $250 sign-on bonus and a $500 retention bonus. Candidates must have a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) at the time of interview.

In addition to hiring drivers, INDOT will also recruit for other job openings including Highway Technicians, Mechanics, and Engineers.
