The Illinois Department of Transportation is looking for qualified individuals to apply for their annual “snowbird” program.
Each year, several seasonal snow-and-ice removal positions open up for temporary full-time employment to help keep the roads cleared throughout the winter.
Snowbirds are required to promptly respond to emerging weather situations and stay alert to work in emergency conditions at any time, including nights, weekends, and holidays.
Applicants must have a commercial driver’s license and submit to a criminal background check.
Each winter, IDOT has approximately 1,800 plows to put into service, providing coverage to nearly 16,000 miles of roads statewide. For more information on the program, and how to apply, click here.
