Highway Operations and Facilities
Re-Entry Work Initiative
The Highway Operations and Facilities Re-Entry Work Initiative is a collaborative effort between the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT), the New Jersey State Parole Board (NJSPB) and the re-entry community designed to establish a program to place NJSPB parolees, as well as other disadvantaged populations, into hourly Temporary Employment Services (TES) positions to perform general highway and building maintenance activities.
Participants in the program are paid a competitive hourly rate for a
6-month employment duration not to exceed 944 hours. Individuals will also be provided formalized classroom and on-the-job training in various highway and building maintenance activities in a team-oriented environment.
Recruitment for the program will run in the fall and spring of each year, with applications being accepted in mid-October and mid-April, and employment beginning during the month of February and August.
