(WXYZ) — The Road Commission of Oakland County is looking to hire up to 25 part-time snowplow drivers.

To be considered for a position, anyone interested must have a current and valid Michigan commercial driver's license with an "A" endorsement. The part-time employees may be scheduled to work up to three days per week and will be on call throughout the winter for day, night and weekend work as needed.

Non-snow removal work will be done by the part-time employees in addition to salting and plowing.

“Come be part of the team that has made Oakland County’s roads among the safest in the world,” said Managing Director Dennis Kolar. “These positions have also become a good stepping stone to permanent positions at the Road Commission as full-time employees retire. It is also a great opportunity for retirees to return to work on a part time basis and pick up some supplemental income."

Paid training and introductory orientation will be provided. The position pays up to $20 an hour, and duties include snow-storm road plowing and salting, as well as other road maintenance jobs like flagging and pothole patching.

Those who are hired must pass a pre-employment driving skill assessment, background check and a post-offer physical exam, including a drug screening. Driving histories will be reviewed.
