I was wondering if anybody could shed some light on what to expect on the test for this position, it's with the MNRR.

Today's test wasn't too difficult. Much easier than the machinist testing. Know your tools and be good at math my only advice to everyone who takes it.

Successfully passed this test. Now i'm on to the background check. How long does it take? Will I get a notification of it being complete? If anyone know's the answer's please let me know, in the meantime I will continue to post here until the process is complete whether I am hired or not that way anyone in the future can prepare themselves for what's ahead.

Did you do a background for the terminal Appearance attendant it's probably the same thing.

Yeah I did. That one was completed when I was on the same vendors website to do this one, no confirmation e-mail at all for it. Have you heard any news regarding that position?

Nothing yet probably has something to do with the hiring freeze. Guess we have to wait till Spring time.

Does anybody know the difficulty to get a CDL B license? I know it's very expensive.... I can drive a forklift and a 3500 pickup/work truck, but no experience at all with CDL vehicles. I am actually surprised I could test, considering they said you need one within 60 days of hire for this position.

Okay guys, I received a phone call this afternoon and I have a practical skills test following the written one I took. Wish me luck everyone please! I'll keep this thread updated with details for anyone else making it into this position.

Also, they said it involves assembling and disassembling a motor. Nothing was specified if it was electric or diesel motor or a tiny lawn mower motor.

Well, it wasn't a motor. It was 2 pieces of sheet metal connected by bolts and spacers. Overall, wasn't that bad I assembled and disassembled within the time limit of 70 minutes. Next step they said is an AWS vertical stick welding test.

Well, I failed the test. They have no mercy and I did not mention the other requirement. I tried to assemble it back together as quick as I could and I did not get one bolt fastened tight enough within the time limit. All bolts must be fastened very tight. The next step is a 3G AWS arc welding test and then an interview. I hope this helps anyone else who is pursuing this position. Good luck! If anybody is truly mechanically inclined and has years of experience I have no doubt they are qualified. I happen to be still a bit green, I gave it my best shot and that's all that matters. I feel if I had only 10 more minutes I would have got it lol which is also why i say I'm still green.
