    just called DCAS automated service and, the exam has been extended until 2017.


    I would think that means alot of people have fallen short of the requirements than they assumed, so they have to take more from the list than expected.

    They have been very slow as far as hiring people off this list since it was established. Then to have another conductor exam coming out they would have no choice but to extended this list. But it's good news for me.

    Yes, it makes sense that they'll extend the list until they have a list established for the conductor exam taking place this spring. This gives them time so they don't have to rush when creating a final list for the upcoming exam. I don't think they've had great trouble finding qualified people off the current list. It seems to me that there's been steady hiring of conductors for years on end.

    Well I'm already on a outstanding certification so they must be getting close to the 6,000.

    I called too and she told me that a lot of people haven't gotten their letters due to the storm on Saturday and that if I didn't receive one that I should call back on Thursday.

    what number did you call and who did you speak to?

    No, actually they have not. They have already called more people than they typically do for a conductor list, and that's with a year still to go on the current one.

     

    It was pushed back because the results of the open competitive exam, due to the large number of people taking it, as well as the existence of other exams that need to be gone through (promotional train operator, open competitive train operator, promotional assistant train dispatcher, and promotional train service supervisor), will cause the new list not to be ready for close to a year. Considering the new test isn't until April anyway, that actually represents a quick turnaround for them.
