    "This e-mail is to inform you that we will be holding a 1 day class in Queens sometime in march 2013 (before the exam date) at Christ Lutheran Center 85-15 101 Ave South Ozone Park for the Track Worker Exam 3600. I had taken taken the class that was given for the 2613 bus operator exam and it was well worth the $60 I paid. If your more than interested in scoring a few extra points on your test to get the job you should benefit from taking this class. I will get an update on the information you will need and post it as soon as possible.

    I took the previous Track Worker test back in '06 or so and if it's anything like the one that I took, it's basically a reading comprehension multiple choice test. I remember it also asked several questions about tools(they'll show you a picture and you have to choose the correct one). No book will help you for this exam. They don't expect you to know the stuff beforehand, so there's no need to study for it(maybe brush up on your tools, but that's about it).

    If you've never taken a civil service exam, it's all about patience. It takes years to be called after taking the exam, assuming you did well enough to be called and the hiring needs for the position. I waited almost 6 years before I got a letter to start the hiring process for Track Worker. It took 6 years becuase there was a hiring freeze. In that time, I took another MTA exam, scored much better on the test and now I'm working in a different job title. Even that one took about 3 or so years from taking the exam to being sworn in and on the job. I'm pretty sure that if there was no hiring freeze during that period, I would've been working as a Track Worker.

    So in the mean time, try to find another line of work. Always have a back up plan. Once it's time to take the exam, relax and don't stress it.

     

    I know it has been a long time, however mind if I ask what your list numbers were, since you had to wait 6 years, which included the hiring freeze?

    Somewhere in the 1100-range with a score in the low 90s.

    They obviously made a mistake, either way if the exam is on March 23rd or on April 6th of next yearwe will be notified 10 days in advance. I never heard of a promo and open competitive exam being heldon the same day.


    Not true. DCAS always did promo and open competitive exams on the same day. When I took promo C/R exam in 2008 my wife was taking the O/C exam. Samething for the T/O exam the following year.
