State DOT is hiring plow drivers and other vacant positions before start of snowfall

ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The New York State Department of Transportation is hiring ahead of the start of the snowfall.

The DOT is looking to fill more than 600 open positions across the state, including plow drivers, highway maintenance workers, mechanics, and engineers. You can apply here.

A DOT official tells our sister station in Albany that they don’t want to be in a position where they don’t have enough plow drivers when winter weather makes the roads treacherous.
