VTrans is hiring

Offers signing bonuses of up to $1,000 for plow drivers and mechanics

The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) is offering additional incentives to help recruit frontline maintenance workers and mechanics this season. From now through Dec. 31, newly hired plow drivers and mechanics who already have a commercial driver’s license (CDL) will receive a total of $1,000 in bonuses over the course of their first year of service. Candidates who don’t have a CDL are eligible for free training and a total of $500 in bonuses over the course of their first year of service.

“Maintenance has been the traditional point of entry for many who have gone on to long-term careers at VTrans,” said Transportation Secretary Chris Cole. “The recent wave of retirements has left us with an urgent need to fill these critical positions. We hope that by offering this additional incentive, we can get the attention of the talented folks who want to become part of the team that keeps our roads safe. It’s a demanding job, but also one of the most rewarding.”

Working for VTrans already presents many excellent benefits, including quality health and dental care, a defined pension program, training and tuition reimbursement, overtime opportunities and snow pay. Working at VTrans means a choice of many career pathways. An entry-level position can be the gateway to hundreds of different jobs.
