When searching through the forums I can only find stuff that's a few years old.I'd imagine math, reading/comp, mechanical aptitude and then a personality or psychological test of some kind. Good luck.

I mean really you still apply by SNAIL MAIL! Who the hell does that in todays age! Come on NJT get with the program, set up online job posting and applying like 99.99999% of the employers in this country have. What an embarrassment.

After at least a good 7 years, I'm beginning to question whether you may want to seek professional help with resume building, interview skills, or whatever you seem to be lacking. Don't blame all of your short comings with major companies modernizing the way submission of applications go. The industry standard is how they currently do it, and the old practice of handing in your resume to HR or having an "in," is long gone. Nepotism isn't anywhere as intense as it once was and being an equal opportunity employer is something most if not all outfits are striving to me. I'm speaking on behalf of the major roads you mentioned.I am not trying anymore. Not having a proper way to post jobs, and have people apply lends itself to all kinds of shenanigans. Don't get upset when I point out the short comings of NJ Transits application system. Its just constructive criticism and its accurate.

There were others that had no link to email that app from which makes no sense what so ever. I'm just annoyed about another position i applied, tested, passed and put on a list only to see the position keep getting reposted and reposted and reposted online non stop for vacancies. What was the point of a list if its just going to be reposted?
