Hello everyone. I was fortunate enough to have been invited to take the Conductor exam for MNR. I 100% know I nailed everything I needed to study for as far as terms and indications, however, I wasn’t able to finish the math portion in time. Will this disqualify me from consideration? Like I said, everything else I know I did really well on. Thanks for the input.

So i applied and went through the entire hiring process for the Tinsmith/Structures.I completed everything that was asked and filled out everything they needed.Interview,physical & drug test all done.Im basically at the waiting stage.Anyone know how long it takes after you have completed everything? I was told by a few current employees if you make it that far you are basically hired.Its been about 2 weeks since i last heard from the recruiter.Do i just wait this out or give it another week or 2 and then call my recruiter and see whats up? I was also told the recruiter will play dumb and say they will contact you soon.

Is pre-hire sleep apnea screening a disqualifier (or is it something that if you get treated for after the screening you can still be hired)? Is it for all T&E positions or just engineer?

They are currently testing all T&E's for sleep apnea. I'm not sure what the qualifiers are for pre employment.

I am scheduled to take the conductor trainee exam and was
wondering if anyone knew any information about the current format of the exam.

Thanks
