Positions exist throughout New York State!
As a Highway Maintenance Worker, you will be trained and evaluated on several pieces of equipment essential to the Transportation Maintenance program, such as a front-end loader and a heavy dump truck with plow, wing and spreader. You will be expected to perform productive work while you gain experience operating the equipment in an on-the-job training status. On a routine basis, you will be performing physical maintenance work and operating equipment, such as a backhoe, widener, front end loader, large roller, stump grinder, post pounder or other mildly complex equipment. You may occasionally operate some of the more complex equipment if you are trained and certified.
During the winter, everyone including trainees performs snow and ice control activities, such as operating a single-blade plow or the wing plow in a one-person plowing operation. Winter snow and ice control activities will involve a shift in your normal work hours.
