Gov. Jim Justice’s $2.8 billion Roads to Prosperity highway maintenance and construction program created the immediate need for thousands of transportation workers, engineers, equipment operators, bridge inspectors, administrators, and others who would be needed to bring the Governor’s vision to fruition.
Knowing those workers would be needed – and needed fast – the WVDOT asked the West Virginia Legislature to pass a law allowing the WVDOT to develop its own job posting, interviewing, and hiring procedures. The new hiring procedures revolutionized the department’s ability to get job applicants on the job quickly and efficiently.
WVDOT jobs offer competitive wages, great benefits, a supportive work environment, and excellent chances for advancement.
In 2022, the WVDOT hired more than 1,400 people. Check the WVDOT website frequently, and you just may find your perfect job.
