    Track Worker 3600 Hiring Process

    More or less...yes. In other words, you should be receiving a letter from them shortly. However, if you look at this website, at least in my opinion, nothing makes sense (type "03600" in the search box on the top right, and sort the list numbers in ascending order). As a result, you'll see that everybody through the end of the list is certified. Go figure...

    Track Worker 3600 Hiring Process

    Well the amount of questions was doubled (80 compared to 40) and there was a memory portion...as far as "common sense", I have no comment until the proposed answer key is online followed by the protest review session. From reading this thread, just wear something that you don't mind getting dirty, especially starting the third day at P.S. 248. Unlike Bus Operator, Conductor, Train Operator, etc., you're not going to be interacting with the public, so regular clothes is fine.

    FYI: My list number is 280* and I posted an update about my on-going case with Human Resources here.

    Track Worker Exam # 8600

    First, as per the guidelines of the site, please practice proper "forum etiquette" and post in the relevant forum. However, since there is a first for everything, this is the latest with my on-going case (My list # is 280*): So on Thursday, April 5th, one of the Staff Analysts in Human Resources said that I would get a letter in the mail. To this date I have not yet received a letter in the mail. Meanwhile, I had a brief phone consultation with a lawyer who I know in the neighborhood. The lawyer said not only to wait the full 90 days, which would be about another month from now, May 21st, but the lawyer also found it interesting that if Transit is using the 10-day Bus Operator Training session against me, in which I got a "U" everyday, in which I still have possession of the daily checkoff lists from all 10 days, then I might have a case. However, the first step is to wait the full 90 days and take it from there. It's such a shame too because my biographical father worked for them for 39 years too. I'm not going to disclose his location and/or title, since this is an open forum, however what's good is that Transit consists of several departments. Therefore, we just have to wait and see what happens...

    Track Worker Exam # 8600

    First, welcome to the Forums!! Second, as far as a "good" score, the higher the better because that means you will be called sooner. As far as the call back system, wait listing, etc: It's going to be a while. When the list gets published, as it says on the bottom of your "Candidate's Record of Answers" sheet, you will receive a letter from them in the mail with your final score and list number. Once that happens, they hire in list number order, starting from the top and working their way down the list. Therefore, the higher the score, the better your odds are of getting hired. Any more questions? If so, feel free to ask!!

    Track Worker Exam # 8600

    Usually it is four, however it could easily be 5 or 6 years, especially if they extend the current list for whatever reason.

    Unfortunately you can't apply to this exam...the application period was back in October. However, when the time comes, visit this page. Should be self-explanatory.

    Track Worker Exam # 8600

    Probably because of the large number of applicants. As an example, the Conductor 6601 list has 31,852 names, the Track Worker 3600 list has about 12,500 names, the last Sanitation exam has 68,000 candidates, etc. Plus, they're using two schools for this exam, including having an AM and PM session, which should say something itself.

    Okay..so if they extend the list by a year then you'll be good to go, which they might do since they're administering this exam throughout this month, and it's going to take time to put everything together. If you look at the previous list, it took them 18 months to produce the list, and that was only for 12,500 people.

    Track Worker Exam # 8600

    Understandable...my apologies for going a little off-topic, however you know that list expires December 18th, 2018, right? In addition, if you want to restore your name to the list, you know that you can simply e-mail DCAS compared to going down in person? If not, click here for the details. (In the event the URL link breaks, it is post numbers 4803 & 4804 on page 193 from the B/O 4600 Hiring Process thread.)

    Amen! And back in 2013, I clearly remember screwing up on the reading comprehension passage too. By the way, nice username @Getchanosediirty4ft!!

    Track Worker Exam # 8600

    So I just got back from the PM session at Midwood High School. My initial thoughts: Although some thought the exam was easy, I took my time. I found some questions tricky, others were straightforward. Fortunately for me this was not the first civil service exam I took, for NYC Transit nor DCAS. Therefore I sort-of knew what to expect upon going into this. There was one curve ball that did me off, which I'll reveal towards the end of May. By then all of the testing will have concluded. For those of you who still have to take the exam: If you're wondering what to study, I would use this & this NYPD Test Prep Kits, in addition to refering to the bottom of the third page and the top of the fourth page of the Notice of Examination. Those green passbooks are a complete waste of time and money, unless you're borrowing it out of the library and you're using it for a small portion of your studying.

    Track Worker 3600 Hiring Process

    First, I sent you a PM @John275. Second, when I got the second HR person on the phone, one of the first questions she asked me was "Were you a prior MTA employee?" (or something to that nature). As soon as I said "yes", she looked on her computer and she said that I would be getting a letter in the mail. This conversation took place this past week. However, upon receiving today's mail, I did not get a letter from Transit nor their Human Resources office! Interesting, right?
