Congrats Semper! When I was at the interview, I was told that if you were in the first 50 to be ready to go ASAP.... I wouldn't be surprised if you were called by 3/1. I'm 346.... so maybe by 2020 before the list is renewed? I can only hope!
Hey everyone, another hopeful from the Boston area. I ranked 180 and figured I wouldn't get in, but it seems like thats not necessarily the case (from reading this forum and a little bit on Reddit). Anyway to check where the list is at and stay updated? I hope boston 4 has as much work as all my buddies in the other trades are saying they're going to have.
You'll first take a test that tests basic math, engineering and vocabulary. If you pass your then set for an interview which you are also ranked on (this ranking determines your placement on the list)
A question for others currently ranked, how do we check the list, I've called a number of people in the union hall and haven't had any luck, was also wondering if it was possible to be on two lists in different locations at once.
minor update: recently talked to someone and was told theyre around high 20's on the list and to call back in 6 months. Was also told that during last 2 hiring cycles they hired into the 200's. good luck everyone.
that is bad news (at least for me, 8 new hires a month would be perfect), hopefully things will pick up within the next year. does anyone happen to know how big the list is? I figured Boston would be hiring left and right.
