Caltrans is having a hard time keeping up with demand.
If you’re looking for a job with good wages and benefits, the state transportation agency is trying hard to fill 1,1000 jobs. The hiring frenzy is due to a growing demand for work brought on by the passage of the 2017 gas tax and a looming wave of workers reaching retirement age.
According to The Sacramento Bee,
“Caltrans crafted four rapid-hiring events it held this year with the state human resources department. They allowed people to apply for jobs in person, be interviewed by panels of managers, have their qualifications reviewed and references checked within two days. If they passed, they’d walk out with a conditional job offer.”
There are currently groups seeking to repeal the gas tax, but Caltrans is continuing to fill jobs as if the initiative will fail.
