New York State Needs More Snow Plow Drivers


(Albany, NY)--If you're looking for some work this winter, the state D-O-T might just have a job for you. The agency is looking to hire 90 permanent and temporary snow plow drivers in the Hudson Valley. People who are hired will be responsible for helping keep the area's roads clear of snow and ice. 

“The New York State Department of Transportation is actively preparing for the inevitable arrival of winter weather by making applications available for approximately 500 positions as permanent and seasonal maintenance staff across Upstate New York and Long Island. Each September, the Department begins to hire and train staff on equipment and best practices, with the aim of having them ready to plow snow as soon as winter weather begins. Employees can expect a base salary plus likely overtime pay, training provided by highly professional and experienced equipment operator instructors and storm managers, and an allowance for footwear.

Qualified candidates interested in keeping our highways safe this winter can find more information about the positions available and how to apply at https://www.dot.ny.gov/jobs/perm_positions/highway-maintenance-worker.”
