HARRISBURG – This winter, more motorists may find themselves stuck on snowy highways or have their travel delayed due to a shortage of snowplow drivers. PennDOT is looking for workers in their Winter Maintenance Program. All candidates must have a CDL and will be subject to a driving skills test as part of the interview process. The majority of tests will be conducted on vehicles with manual transmissions. The job often entails working odd hours in treacherous conditions.

With the shortage of snowplow drivers, it could take longer for the plows to clear highways during winter storms. State transportation departments are competing for drivers with trucking companies who are also short on drivers.
