Burns: PennDOT seeking full-time workers for seasonal summer jobs

College students, maintenance and custodial workers can earn $13.56 an hour

EBENSBURG, Jan. 25 PennDOT is recruiting applicants for its 2019 Summer Maintenance Program, said state Rep Frank Burns, where college students, highway maintenance workers and custodial workers earn $13.56 an hour.


Burns said pay for these full-time positions, available from April through October, rises to $15.28 an hour for semi-skilled laborers and $19.84 hourly for tunnel maintainers and certain equipment operators.


“With so many people looking for steady work, especially college students during the summer, I wanted to make everyone aware of these opportunities,” said Burns, D-Cambria. “In addition to getting steady income and additional work experience, it’s equally important to note that these seasonal openings also provide a gateway to potential promotion into a permanent position.”


Burns said more details on the PennDOT jobs can be obtained by visiting www.employment.pa.gov, clicking through the “Open Jobs” icons and searching for “PennDOT Summer Maintenance Program 2019.”


People can also apply for jobs by following the above computer protocol, Burns said.


Burns also issued the caveat that not all jobs are available in all counties.
