CDOT holding career fairs for permanent and temporary positions

COLORADO (KRDO) -- The Colorado Department of Transportation is holding career fairs throughout the state over the next five weeks.

CDOT is looking for permanent and temporary full-time and part-time highway maintenance workers.

Permanent positions include full benefits and promotional opportunities. Temporary seasonal positions generally last up to nine months. However, seasonable workers can apply for full-time maintenance positions based on experience gained while in a temporary position.

Also, certain positions and locations offer a housing stipend.

The positions available for hire are:

  • Commercial Driver's License (CDL) Highway Maintenance Employee and Temporary Winter Employee
    • This requires a CDLA A or B and two years of experience in labor and/or equipment operation
  • Temporary Highway Maintenance Trainees (CDOT assists with CDL attainment once hired)
    • Must be at least 18 and requires a valid regular driver's license
    • Some experience in labor and/or equipment operation preferred, not required
  • Temporary/Permanent Equipment Mechanics (CDL preferred, not required)

Colorado residency is not required for permanent or temporary employees at the time of application.
