1st Premployment Appointment invitation is received by an actual physical letter in the mail, followed by a possible phone call, text and/or email. 

2nd Premployment Appointment invitation is received primarily by an Email and followed by a phone call.

Nothing to be upset about, previous generation candidates would sometimes wait years to be called for premployment. 

Exam 8611 was taken by candidates only a year ago, those who passed are lucky that they started calling for premployment so soon. 

Not to mention it's only been a little over a month since they started calling for premployment and they are already half way thru the list. 

Continue living and breathing, everyone will get an opportunity.

Wise words. I agree. Be patient. I know it’s sucks waiting.

That’s real close to mine. You probably will get called first thing next week if they don’t make phone calls on weekend. I’m not sure. I hope everyone gets called back soon.

They leave voicemails if you missed it. They left me a voicemail cause I missed it at first and would send you an email.

Power meaning power distribution ? I’m in the July 15th class. I’m either going to one of the two.

I meant July 15th. Not July 8th. Medical was cool , got scared tho because they told me I failed my lung capacity test first time and had to redo it a second time but I passed. Still here now since 7. No specific reason why I choose signals over other. Signals make more than others tho and I’m sure it’s probaly more challenging but I don’t think it can be that tough.

helper in signals starts 50 cents lower than helper in Power..Lighting is a nice spot with a lot of OT but Signals always on the tracks and under the spotlight..also i think Signals, your 1st 6 months is school or something like that..good luck brotha

As far as maintainers. They start off at $37 and end at that. That’s they flat rate but light maintainers start at $30 and gotta work 6 years to get to $36/37.
