    Well, it was the EXACT same test as the last time. There were literally 4 times as many people there this time.

    If I do any worse then the last time, it's my own fault;
    If I do any better, it's just luck.

    Only the 3rd test I ever took, so I'm not sure if it was considered difficult or not. Anyone who's taken more test's got any insight??

    theres 11 in the academy right now but anything this year or next doesnt look good. Ive heard anywhere from 35-none due to the economic times. I dont know how well my sources are but if your not the decision makers i dont know how good anyones info is going to be.

    wow i didn't know there was an academy right now. i was under the impression they did this test to make a list to put people in right away. hopfully they will plan on hiring some in the near future for our sake. anyone else have any imput on the test?

    I called the HR department Monday, they said they had gotten the results back last week and the guy said he expects the letters will go out late this week. Dont know if thats the official answer or just what this guy at HR was thinking....

    I got a phone call from a friend there and he told me where I was at. I suggest if you know someone there, give them a call to find out.

    thats a horrible score haha, not sure how many but just a little rumor for every1 from a guy that works up there they might be looking to hire a whole new shift, not sure if its true but that would be nice to put that many in ontop of all the ones who drop
