It was actually pretty simple , a lot of math reading and problem solving only bad part was that u have certain amount of time to answer the questions which is only 5 mins. I recieved noticed 2 weeks ago that i passed im just waiting for an interview which can take a long time

That's great hopefully it's sooner than later. I currently work for Norfolk southern. I took the test back in November. I'm pretty bummed I didn't pass . I just mailed in form to hopefully get a re-test. Anyone have info on the wait period to be re-tested

Basic math and reading comprehension. The math portion is a timed 5 minute test

This is an initial test for me. I've applied 30 plus times for locomotive engineer. Then letter for this position came out of the blue. Going to just review all basic math I guess, hope I can find practice questions online. For anyone else applying I've faxed, mailed, hand delivered applications on and off for 2 years. Good luck all

Well that was exciting. Questions were easy. Just not sure if I got enough in the time given. Guess I'll wait and see. Two weeks till results as per the proctor.

Don't get your hopes up. Over 1 year ago I took the test for train dispatcher. The proctor said same thing, they would mail the test results in 2 weeks and everyone that passed would get an interview. I received the test results saying that I passed. Haven't heard anything since......

And that just ain't right. NJ Transit needs a modern employment system, and more fair process.
