Where can i find material to study for this exam? Especially for the “job abilities”(leadership, decisiveness) portion ? Any recommendations would be helpful

You can't consolidate two separate civil service lists, it's literally illegal lol.

What's probably going on (what I assume) they don't want to release the new list until they already have a secondary list on standby because the first list is so short as they claim (less then 80 people). Your list will come out FIRST and will they will hire off your list FIRST. It's just a waiting game now, unless your name is DCAS you don't believe any rumors.

Word!!! I heard Livingston street and zarega opening soon so hopefully they can start moving along 

I heard Zerega may open on the 22nd, not too sure if that July 6 date pushes that back or what.

No that’s not going to affect dispatcher that’s more of the executive and upper management on a corporate level promoting. You still would need dispatchers in fact I heard 26 in Ta retired already since COVID started and another 40 before the end of the year a lot of those guys are getting out after everything that has happened.  I got word they started doing new bus operator classses so hopefully we will see a list before September 🤞 or September.. the last list that was extended has a November expiration date
