The Illinois Department of Transportation is looking for temporary employees to help with snow and ice removal this winter, as part of its Winter Seasonal Employment — “Snowbird” Program. IDOT hires two types of temporary positions for its Winter Seasonal Program, which usually occurs from October 16th through April 15th of each year.

IDOT announced recently it’s hiring people for full-time and on-call positions across Illinois. The application deadline is September 13, 2017.

First, IDOT hires full-time, temporary highway maintainers – known as “Winter Salaried Highway Maintainers (Monthly Snowbirds).”

Winter Salaried Highway Maintainers (Monthly Snowbirds) perform all of same job duties as IDOT’s year-round highway maintainers, including performing a variety of tasks related to the maintenance, repair and upkeep of roads, bridges and other related structures and features. Winter Salaried Highway Maintainers (Monthly Snowbirds) must have a Class A or B CDL with an X or N endorsement.

Second, IDOT hires on-call, as-needed truck operators – known as “Snow Removal Operators (Hourly Snowbirds).”

Snow Removal Operators (Hourly Snowbirds) are paid hourly and respond to emergency weather situations to inspect roadways, operate snow plows/salt spreaders, and remove other hazardous materials/obstacles from the roadways. Snow Removal Operators (Hourly Snowbirds) must also have a Class A or B CDL with an X or N endorsement.

The annual “snowbird” program requires workers to respond and work in emergency conditions at any time, including nights, weekends and holidays.

IDOT says applicants must have a commercial driver’s license and pass a criminal background check. Vision testing, drug and alcohol screening and a pre-employment physical also are required.

Full-time, temporary employees help maintain highways, including repair and upkeep of roads and bridges. On-call workers operate snow plows and salt spreaders during emergency weather situations.

The winter seasonal program typically occurs from Oct. 16 through April 15.

The positions will be posted each year, typically in the month of September.

District 1 (Cook County, DuPage County, Kane County, Lake County, McHenry County, and Will County) only posts for and hires Winter Salaried Highway Maintainers (Monthly Snowbirds).

All other counties will post for and hire both Winter Salaried Highway Maintainers (Monthly Snowbirds) and Snow Removal Operators (Hourly Snowbirds).
