PEORIA, Ill. – As part of efforts to hire “Snow Birds” and other highway maintainers for the coming months, state Rep. Jehan Gordon-Booth, D-Peoria, is welcoming the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) for a one day hiring pop up this Sunday, Sept. 11 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Gordon-Booth’s community headquarters at 1200 W. Main St., Campustowne Suite 7 in Peoria.
“If you or someone you know is looking for a job, this is a great opportunity to meet with IDOT and see what’s available,” Gordon-Booth said. “Highway maintainers play a critical role in keeping our roads safe. If you feel like you have the experience and the ability to help, our state needs people like you.”
IDOT is looking for highway maintainers and “Snow Birds.” Typically, IDOT hires both full-time and on-call workers in advance of winter weather, with the expectation that employees are required to respond to weather situations and emergency conditions at any time – including nights, weekends and holidays. Eligible applicants must have a valid driver’s license and CDL (commercial driver’s license).
