The Chicago Transit Authority is hosting its third job fair to hire 400 part-time drivers ahead of next year's multi-month closure of South Side rail stations.
The event began at 9 a.m. Saturday at Kennedy-King College, located at 740 W. 63rd Street, Chicago, Illinois. The job fair runs until 1 p.m., according to the website.
The CTA wants drivers to primarily shuttle commuters next spring during the Red Line South Track Renewal Project, but transit officials said the positions could lead to full-time jobs
Those interested in the opportunities should attend the job fairs prepared with a valid, Class B Commercial driver’s license or permit with general knowledge, passenger transport and air brake endorsements. They should also have a court-purposed motor vehicle record obtained through the Illinois Secretary of State's Office.
