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!!

Definitely excited, taking it 4/8/18 @ Franklin K. Lane H.S. Praying that I score higher than I did for #3600. My list number for that exam really sucks!!

On exam #3600 I scored 82.75 which put me very far down on the list I think like 92xx.

From what I remember the material was not hard at all, the other thing is not paying attention and rushing through the test.

Well  that is probably what went wrong. Rushing is never good.

Was watching the news and they said they want to hire 3k Track/signal/maintainers for some new plan. This could be good news for us. 3k is ALOT of people.

What goes on when people get the same score? Is it the sign up date that breaks the tie or test date? I signed up pretty damn quick (around 4 days after it opened) but find myself in the last few days of testing. I afraid I dun goofed myself.

I hate to be honest,  however with the current Track Worker list that is out, in which the list can be downloaded here and the thread can be viewed here, there are about 12,500 people on that list. Someone with a list number in the 2600's just got hired, and I'm in the 2800's, in which I took a drug test and submitted my pre-employment application on February 21st, approximately three [3] weeks ago. There are approximately 9,700 people that are still waiting to get called, depending on if they extend the current list for one or two more years once it expires this December.

Therefore, if I was you, I wouldn't "count your chickens before they hatch." Just focus on the upcoming exam, especially as time gets closer, and when the list for this exam comes out, we'll take it from there.

I dont know man. 9.7k is a huge number of people to move. I really don't think they will  get through the majority of them....like I said 9.7 K is a tonnnn of people. This being said I don't  know the ratio of people that are called to process. It looks like your humming along though, so best of luck! i hope you signed up for this one as well.

I agree. Thank you so much @bimmer4me for those kind words!! I'll be posting my status in the Track Worker 3600 Thread as time progresses.
