PARK FOREST – To help job seekers find employment, State Senator Patrick Joyce (D-Essex) is encouraging qualified individuals to apply for seasonal snow-and-ice removal positions with the Illinois Department of Transportation.

“We depend on our snowplow drivers to keep our roads safe during the winter season,” Joyce said. “This is a great opportunity for job seekers to find employment through IDOT – I encourage job seekers and especially veterans to submit an application.” 

Through the department’s annual “snowbird” program, temporary snowplow drivers are hired every year on a full-time and on-call basis. To be considered, applicants must have a commercial driver’s license. A pre-employment physical, vision test, and drug and alcohol screening are also required.

Applicants will be selected based on availability, job-related experience and qualifications. Veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.

Interested candidates can find additional information, including details on the application process, pay and the potential for benefits, here. Job postings will be made available the week of Aug. 23.
