I just figured I’d start a thread for the people that applied for the Philadelphia opening. I’m due to take my aptitude test Dec 11th. There’s a lot of good info in these other threads about general info but I’m more interested in Local 5 info. Work Locations, places to live, how you like the job, etc... It’ll also be good to hear from other applicants during this process. I am a veteran of Coast Guard avionics work on helicopters and am very excited for this new chapter of my life. Good luck to all and any info about the area would be greatly appreciated.

Just an update, there were 472 people that took the local 5 test. I passed the test and am awaiting an interview. The email said interviews will began late Feb- early Mar. hoping to hear something sooner rather than later. Good luck to all!

Thanks brotha, That's definitely what it feels like and good luck to you! Let me know when you get your ranking. I'm just curious when they are going to be sent out since that was the original local I applied for.

You never know brotha, they could hire a ton of people in the next 2 years. Definitely keep trying! It seems like this is the trade to get into! IDK if you are willing to relocate or make a drive but keep an eye out for nearby locals as well if so. I know Allentown and Harrisburg just opened theirs up recently so may be awhile before they open up again. If you are a veteran though I hear helmets to hardhats will let you apply to any local a few times a year. Good luck to ya. I still haven't got my call yet for Harrisburg but they just opened up for hiring on the 15th so i'm just trying to wait patiently.

Hey guys! Figured I’d join in the conversation. Congrats on your ranking EZ! I also interviewed for the Harrisburg location, ranked #3. So if you could give me a heads up when you get your call that would be awesome! It’s a small local so I’m hoping in 2 years they will at least get through #3 on the list… I’m still waiting on my interview date for Allentown as well but we should hear back on that pretty soon.

Looks like I didn’t do as well on the Philly interview as I was expecting either, as I was ranked #128. Definitely was hoping for a better number considering I believed that to be the stronger of my two interviews so far. So I guess we will just have to wait and see how that list turns out considering all the upcoming retirements. Sounds like a lot of positions will need to be filled, so maybe this list will move a lot faster than the last.

Good luck all!

A close buddy of mine who is in the local 5 told me starting in the next two years 1/3 of the union is going to retire...so hopefully that is true and they start plugging away at the list!!!

I also was in contact with the union guy who interviewed me and said my interview was good but the score I got on the written exam stayed they same and I guess I didn’t score as well in that...not sure why they wouldn’t allow us who were on the last list retake the test also and then use the better if the two score for placement...

From what I understand the written test has nothing to do with your interview score. That's what I was told anyway, could be wrong. The written test is basically just to weed out the people that really don't belong and have no mechanical comprehension. I was told that the tool test counts towards your interview score though. Did you take that again?

Mech that's awesome man! I wonder how many people applied to the Harrisburg office? When I did my interview one of the gentlemen that interviewed me mentioned he had been doing interviews for several days. I know philly had like 480 take the test, not sure how many interviewed. I will definitely let you know when they call. Hopefully we will get called in the same day and soon. I would highly doubt they wouldn't get through 3 apprentices in the next 2 years haha. Good luck to ya man.

I was also under the impression that the written test was essentially just a pass/fail evaluation. I remember Mr. Cowan telling the room not to worry about our score because we just had to get a 70. The tool assessment definitely counted for a portion of our interview score. I actually took the tool assessment twice, once at local 5 after the test and again at local 59 before my interview. But if the test score does factor into the final rankings it definitely would make sense to let people retest.

I was wondering how many people interviewed as well. Im not sure about Harrisburg, but i did hear that only about 30 people are interviewing for local 84 in Allentown. Which from what I understand is a traditionally low turn out. And as in both of our cases, im sure some of those people will have interviewed and be on the list for both. So if the Harrisburg call doesn't come maybe Allentown will work out. I cant help but feel like im so close yet so far haha.
