Track Worker Exam # 8600

+Young+

As of January 8th, 2020, the list for this particular exam has been published. To view your list number, click here and type either your name or '8600' in the search box on the top right, followed by pressing 'enter.'

While we are waiting to get called, this downloadable PDF file might be of interest, especially to those who have a low list number. In addition, for those of you who are seeking more information, I would encourage you to read the Track Worker 3600 Hiring Process thread. This thread contains a lot of useful information.

Good luck and stay safe out there!!

I am one of the top scorers from this exam and was wondering how to track the list to see how far away I am. 

First of all, welcome to the site!

Second, according to the Civil Service List Certification page of the NYC Open Data website, as of this typing, no one from this list has been called. Once they do, you should be able to see it on the page. For now, you can type "Track Worker" into the search box on the top right hand side of the screen, followed by pressing "enter" on your keyboard. Once they start calling people from this list, you can also type in the exam number as "08600" instead of "Track Worker."

And, according to the recording on Ms. Rivera's answering machine, in which you can obtain the phone number here, the folks at 180 Livingston Street will not be there until March 30th, 2020. However, I have a "gut" feeling that, despite the circumstances, this will get extended until who knows when.

Stay safe and healthy everyone!!

I would say anyone with a list number of about 1000 or below. You can also view those top scorers on the chiefleaders website. I would say anyone having a 106% through a 91% have a fairly well chance, if, things tend to repeat themselves. Anyone with these percentages will just have to play the waiting game.

Will this list be extended the pandemic has shut down the process and not a person off this list has been called

To tell you the truth, I'm wondering the same thing myself, not only for this particular examination, but also for Bus Operator (TA) Exam #9604. That list was published in late November of 2019 and nobody has been called off of that list either.

Only time will tell my friend, only time will tell.

In the meantime, stay safe and healthy!!

Hello I am new to this forum. I was just wondering what are my chances of being called with a list number around the 1600-1800 range.

Anyone have any thoughts on how long until the list begins to move or is it on hold indefinitely for the remainder of year?. Hope everyone is safe.

Hopefully sooner or later, 180 is scheduled to re-open by phase 2.  RTO is in dire need of bodies right now, MoW I'm not too sure. I'm currently a Bus Operator and staying in my position until I get called for Track then I'm jumping ship. Hopefully we start to see the ball rolling around Julyish for us.

Although I like your post, as per the attached picture, I thought there was a "hiring freeze" in effect? Any updates?

They're not going to have much of a choice when retirements skyrocket and you need crews. Right now from what I heard T/O's are in dire need, not too sure about C/R's. They can't even hire new B/O's unless they have license because permits won't be obtainable till phase 3. All I know is that 180 is set to open when we hit phase 2, after that they should be hiring slowly for service delivery positions.

MTA is reopening offices on july 6th.

That’s great ! But the real question is, when are they going to lift the hiring freeze.

I imagine the hiring process will be slow, small amount of people at a time. Also depends on how much and fast next wave of covid spreads during  the opening of the state.

Hey new to the forum im listed in the 200s for the track worker position any ideas how long that would take to be called?

First of all, welcome to the Forums! Glad to have you on-board!!

Second, with the current pandemic that is going on, all I'm going to say is "take an educated guess and go with it." Personally, my educated guess is that this list will not be moving for a while, however that's my educated guess. However, instead of waiting around for an e-mail message or for something in the mail, I would encourage you to check out this website. All you have to do is type in "Track Worker" in the search box on the top right hand side of the screen. As soon as the agency requests a list of names from the Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), you should see that webpage updated within a few business days.

Third, if you haven't done so already, can you please familiarize yourself with the guidelines of the website? This includes "bumping topics." Therefore, please do not do this on a regular basis. As you can tell by looking at the other employment threads/topics, if no one has posted anything within the last couple of weeks, months and/or years, then you know there has been very little to no movement for that particular civil service list and/or title.

Again, welcome to the Forums!!
