The Indiana Department of Transportation is getting ready for the winter plowing season. The department will Tuesday host hiring fairs at several locations throughout the state.

As an incentive, INDOT says it’s offering a $250 signing bonus and a $500 retention bonus for eligible candidates. People hired for the winter seasonal positions start at $16 an hour. The work season runs from November through March.

INDOT says a CDL is required for these positions. The job requires clearing roads and performing maintenance on equipment. Depending on weather and snowfall, workers could be on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But there are other positions as well, such as repairing and installing traffic signs.

INDOT prefers job candidates to apply online for Tuesday’s job fair, but it’s not required. Walk-ins are welcome.
