Recommended Posts

Does Anyone know if there is a number we can call to find out our results or at least grasp an idea of when a List will be Established.

Thank You.

I don't have a phone number but can say that they still need to administer a practical exam for anybody that passed the written exam. After that they will put out a list based on the people that passed both exams. i wouldn't expect anything any time soon.

I also received the letter two days ago. I spoke to someone that received the letter three weeks ago! I wonder why such a delay for some?

Not 100% sure but I believe they give you a few components and have you build a ciruit. Than you're required to make some measurements and possibly solve a problem within the circuit.

What kind of timeline was your hiring process? From testing to hiring?

well i took the test in May and was called in July but i think at the time they were on a hiring binge

 

 

Haha, we're WELL past that kind of timeline. Application filed in September 2011, testing in January 2012, and test results received in July 2012. Everybody is still waiting to be called back for the practical exam. Looks like we'll have to wait some more.

How did you make out?

 

I never heard anything back from my appeal. I was told that I inadequately described my work experience so I had to file the appeal with a more detailed explanation of my work experience.

 

I've been working for Con Ed in the mean time so it hasn't been on my mind until I saw your post today.

Looks like they're making some progress finally! I received a letter confirming that they accepted my appeal and they'll grade my practical exam! I received a 97 on my multiple choice and I know that I aced the practicle. Hopefully I'll be hearing from them soon!
