ODOT Holding Employment Application Workshop

ODOT District 1 is looking to fill several positions in the eight-county district.

The agency will be holding an application workshop at Ohio Means Jobs in Allen County to assist people in the application process.

Full details are in the following news release from ODOT.


The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) District 1 will hold an employment application workshop at Ohio Means Jobs, Allen County to assist applicants interested in the organization’s open positions.

The workshop will be held:
Tuesday, May 18, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Ohio Means Jobs Allen County, 951 Commerce Parkway, Lima, in the computer lab.

Applicants interested in applying for apprenticeships, seasonal highway technician positions, or any other openings in Allen, Defiance, Hancock, Hardin, Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert, and Wyandot counties will be guided through the process by ODOT human resource personnel.

Apprenticeships do not require any previous experience in heavy equipment operation or highway maintenance. The temporary full-time positions pay an hourly rate of $17.39. In addition to practical experience in highway maintenance activities, ODOT provides apprentices with the necessary training needed to obtain a Class B commercial drivers license (CDL).

“If you are interested in working with heavy equipment and enjoy working outdoors, the apprenticeship program is a great opportunity for anyone looking to get started,” said Chris Hughes, deputy director of ODOT District 1. “We will teach you how to run a plow truck and help you earn your CDL.”

Seasonal highway technician positions are also temporary full-time positions, with an hourly rate of $18.05. The positions require applicants to possess a CDL with a tanker endorsement and three months of experience in basic equipment operation.

Applicants should bring with them to the workshops:

An active email address
A resume including previous work history information
The last four digits of their social security number
Any certification information, if any, but not required
