Posted September 15, 2016
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) would like to inform you about several entry-level positions that are ideal for a student's first step into the professional workforce. We are looking for graduating high school students who have an interest in working in clerical, trades, labor, and tourism positions. In addition to these full-time positions, PennDOl needs individuals for our inter Maintenance Program that runs each year from October through March and could lead to permanent employment.
Employment with PennDOl provides opportunities for career development and progression, meaningful work, and personal satisfaction. For full-time employees, we offer a competitive salary and health benefits package; generous paid holiday, vacation, personal, and sick leave; life insurance; and retirement/pension benefits.
The Commonwealth also offers more life-enhancing optional benefits, such as the availability to buy into our deferred compensation program, group auto and home insurance, dependent care insurance, and credit union membership. Permanent part-time employees may receive certain pro-rated benefits based on the number of hours worked.
