Can't wait to take the exam and find out my score/list number.

Hopefully I do well, and there isn't a hiring freeze.

Over 60,000 signed up as of a few days ago. Better get a hundred on that test folks. They will only get to about 10% of those list numbers and that might be optimistic since they haven't even reached 6000 yet on this current exam and it was extended 3 years. 5% may be hired realistically.

what i dont understand is if 10,000 people all score 100, and all get the residency credit, how will they all be hired?

ive heard rumors ranging from a lottery, the order of the last 4 digits of your SS, the date in which you filed, the time it takes u to finish the test, etc. but what is the real truth behind it? if i score 105 on the test what are the chances of me getting hired assuming thousands of others ALSO score 105?

I emailed DCAS that question a few weeks ago. They emailed me a response:

“Whenever two or more candidates in an examination receive the same final examination ratings, their respective place on the resulting eligible list shall be determined for administrative reasons only by a sequence of the number derived from the last five and then the first four positions of their social security numbers.”

This info is also on their website and you can see it here:

Rule 4.4.11

so does that mean theres a chance i could score 105+ on this test, and still be list #20,000 due to the random sequence of my SS number? so essentially i can do amazing on the test and still not get hired.. great

Damn, for anyone who's ever taken a sanitation exam before was it easy?

Seems like one has more of a chance getting hired off of a transit exam.

Damn, it seems like the DSNY has been pushing for as many people as possible to take this exam, but in reality one's chances of getting hired is slim to none. Not complaining, it is what it is I guess...

60,000 x test fee = Millions of dollars.
