YORK COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — PennDOT is holding a series of job fairs across the Midstate to fill positions for the upcoming winter season.

For the past few years, PennDOT has struggled to get enough temporary workers for the winter. The agency is hosting recruitment events for job seekers to learn more about winter temporary and permanent CDL operator and diesel and construction equipment mechanic positions.

On Monday, Aug. 8, PennDOT is holding a job fair from noon to 6 p.m. at the York County Maintenance Office. There will also be a job fair in Dauphin County on Wednesday, Aug. 17, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Dauphin County Maintenance Office.
