The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) is seeking to hire part-time seasonal drivers to augment its full-time staff for the winter this year.
“Part-time seasonal drivers have been a very efficient and cost-effective way to provide the level of service during the winter that Oakland County residents deserve,” explained Managing Director Dennis Kolar. “This enables us to provide a higher level of service during the winter months than we otherwise could.”
To be considered for one of the part-time driver positions, anyone interested must have a current Michigan commercial driver’s license (CDL) with an “A” endorsement. The part-time drivers may be scheduled to work three days per week and will be on call throughout the winter for additional day, night and weekend work as needed. Every attempt is made to establish consistent work schedules.
“Come be part of the team that has made Oakland County’s roads among the safest in the world,” Kolar said to those considering applying for one of the positions. “These positions have also become a good steppingstone 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 at one of our six garages located throughout Oakland County,” he added.
Paid training and introductory orientation will be provided. The seasonal driver positions pay $21 per hour.
Those selected for hire will be required to pass a pre-employment driving-skill assessment, background check and a post-offer physical exam including a drug screening. Driving histories will be reviewed.
