NJ Needs Snowplow Operators

New Jersey’s Department of Transportation has sent out the call for snowplow operators.

The state is seeking truckers with commercial driver’s licenses to operate six- to eight-ton dump trucks with a snowplow or tailgate unit for salt spreading.

DOT commissioner James Simpson tells The Star-Ledger of Newark that the agency will teach drivers how to plow snow. The on-call jobs pay about $43 per hour.

The effort is aimed at augmenting the DOT’s current road force which is still involved in finishing the cleanup from Hurricane Sandy.

It will also help if there’s a storm like the December 2010 blizzard that dumped up to 32 inches of snow on New Jersey and left cars and trucks stranded on major roads overnight.
