There is a good thread on the employment board about the general hiring process at Metro-North: http://www.railroad.net/forums/viewtopi ... =2&t=53976
While a lot of it is conductor related, people have asked about other crafts there too.

When I took the NJT Signalman trainee test it was math aptitude, reading/comp, and a very hard electronics test which I passed. Oh and a general mechanical test. Passed Electronics, reading/comp but missed on math by 3 and mechanical by like 5 or 6. I was so pissed. Hope that kinda helps?
