Emergency Operator

Emergency operators assist with our winter operations efforts. During the winter season, emergency snow-removal crew members are needed when inclement weather hits. The department has a continuous need for emergency operators to work in all parts of the state, including both urban and rural areas during the winter season.

Qualified applicants would receive extensive training so they would be able to perform routine, entry-level duties related to MoDOT’s snow removal operations. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and have a valid Class A or B Commercial Driver’s License with interstate designated status and no air-brake restrictions.  

Those hired as emergency operators can earn $22.08 to $27.44 per hour, depending on their levels of experience.

Applications for employment are accepted and reviewed on a continuing basis. For emergency operator positions, you will only receive notification if the department wishes to schedule you for an interview.
