Track Worker 3600 Hiring Process

Recommended Posts

Signal?

They go out with more flagging lights then men. Plus they got radios.

I wouldn't go there.

Nope. Me either. Signal has a lot of heat on them right now. Plus they're always getting called out on track circuits and other nonsense. Tough dept to be in right now. Edited by SpikeMauler

Things have been pretty quiet around here haha, so any rough estimate as to when we'll hear anything?

 

Also, whats the whole hiring process like? do you get a letter stating to come in for a medical or something of that nature, after the list is established obviously? If someone has any details that would be great!

My educated guess is that it would be something similar to those who are being called for Bus Operator - except you do not need the CDL licence. Refer to http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/topic/34980-bus-operator-exam-2613-questions/ for more information.

no not yet

 

Mastap is correct. Even though we took the exam for this last March, today I called DCAS (212-669-1357) to try to obtain a list number, since this worked for the B/O exam 2613. After I entered my information, there was no record of my social security #. Therefore, I have a feeling that they don't want to release the list just yet.

 

In addition, when I was at 180 Livingston Street on December 19th for the second drug test (for B/O 2613), I was talking to the person next to me. He mentioned that he took the previous track worker exam (http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcas/downloads/pdf/noes/trackworker.pdf) and that there were no more track worker positions open/available. Therefore, the agency offered him a "cleaner" position which he was going for.

 

In my opinion, based on this information, although the agency has a 'list' established, it will not be produced until there are track worker positions open/available.

You're welcome. My recommendation for you folks is to call the 212 number periodically in order to obtain a list number. I just tried calling a few moments ago and was not successful. However, when I am successful, I will post something on this thread.

Hey guys, i know its been quiet around here, i guess mainly due to the fact we probably wont hear anything for quite some time.

 

However, anyone on the job or know someone that can give me some insight? Hows the job? hows the pay? someone in a previous post explained something about you have to a choice to go into "capital"? can anyone elaborate haha. what the hiring process like - are they strict on who they take, or can i guy like me with no experience get on? And i know that its up to the individual, but what would you say is a better job in terms of pay, pension, benefits etc...........track worker (MTA) or city job like police, fire, sanitation?

 

Anyone opinions would be great!

See posts 164, 166 and 170 on this thread for some insight on the job. You don't need any experience or a HS diploma for that matter. You also can be a convicted felon and still get hired. Police, Fire and Sanitation are all better jobs with better pay, benefits and pensions respectively.

Really? I sure hope so haha. just out of curiosity how did you find that out !

 

About 6 months ago in October, we got an e-mail stating that they are grading the exams and the results should be out in 6 months, which is April.

I've also been calling DCAS (212-669-1357) at least once a week for a list # and no luck yet.
