Highway Maintainer (HM)


How do I prepare for this career?

  • Complete a Central Management Services (CMS) employment application (CMS-100) for each position for which you are applying.
  • If you are fluent in Spanish and are interested in a Spanish-speaking option position, indicate your interest by placing “SS” in the right corner of the same box as the title of the position for which you are applying on the application form.
  • Call your local CMS office to find out the testing schedule. Take your completed employment application to the CMS Testing Office nearest you. The test is by computer and you will get a grade immediately upon completion.
  • If you did not receive an “A” grade and you wish to retake the test, there is a 30-day waiting period. If you have questions about your test score or the employment process, contact CMS.
