The Indiana Department of Transportation will be hosting a Statewide Winter Seasonal Hiring Event this Thursday, October 28 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. local time in various locations across the state.

Winter seasonal employment runs from November through March at a starting pay of $20 per hour. INDOT offers $250 sign-on and $500 retention bonuses for eligible candidates. Candidates must have a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL). A high school diploma or GED is preferred, but not required.  

In the Northwest District, hiring events will take place at the Gary Sub District at 7601 Melton Road or the Plymouth Sub District at 2845 Jack Greenlee Drive.

INDOT staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide more information on open positions and careers with INDOT. Though the hiring events are primarily to recruit for winter seasonal positions, other job openings at INDOT include highway maintenance technicians and mechanics. Registration for the hiring event is not required, but candidates are encouraged to apply online prior to attending.
