KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Transportation has 51 jobs open right now for maintenance workers in the Kansas City area.
“Maintenance is probably the easiest avenue to get started, get your foot in the door,” said Marcus Slaughter.
He was a maintenance worker early in his career with MoDOT more than 20 years ago and is now the Incident Management Coordinator for KC Scout.
"And I got to a point where I didn't want to leave. This is like a family,” said Chris Sholl, MoDOT maintenance superintendent for Platte and Clay counties. “You know I've known people that have been here for 45 years, at MoDOT, and still haven't retired and they don't want to retire.”
The available jobs come with benefits, too.
“Your medical benefits, they start the day you start,” said Deborah Morgan, Human Resources Manager for the Kansas City District of MoDOT.
She said pay for the full-time positions starts at $14.75 per hour.
“We have annual sick leave. We have 12 paid holidays. All you have to do is pass the written portion of your CDL, 18 years old, and have a GED or high school diploma,” Morgan said.
Anyone interested in the open positions can see more information by going online.
