COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Department of Transportation is holding career fairs around the state to hire maintenance workers for permanent, temporary full-time, and part-time positions.

CDOT says permanent positions include full benefits (worth an average of $16,669 per year) and promotional opportunities.

A variety of positions are available for hire, including:

  • CDL (Commercial Driver’s License) Highway Maintenance Employee and Temporary Winter Employee
    • Requires a CDL 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)

CDOT says certain positions and locations offer a housing stipend, and that all positions include paid sick leave.

CDOT says temporary seasonal positions generally last up to nine months. However, seasonal workers can apply for full-time maintenance positions based on experience gained while in the temporary position.
