Applications Available for PennDOT Winter Maintenance Program, Says Killion
HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will again sponsor a winter maintenance program and is seeking applicants for a variety of positions to supplement the permanent workforce, Rep. Thomas Killion (R-Delaware/Chester) said today.
Positions will be available for temporary equipment operators, mechanics, trades helpers, clerks and typists. The program runs from September 2012 through April 2013.
The majority of positions are Transportation Equipment Operators (TEO). Applicants 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.
