From what I was told, the PAT consists of picking up 90lbs, climbing a ladder, ect. Shouldnt be too difficult. Did you apply for gas or electric?

I applied for GUW position and was told to take the test. Email said something about Bklyn/Queens underground and equipment dept.Not sure if thats gas or electric but I would imagine electric since Brooklyns gas is covered by National Grid.

John I was given a date for my PAT before I left the testing site. Better give them a call.

I passed the test and wasn't scheduled for a PAT the day off the test but received an email that interviewing will be starting soon.....it may have to do with prior knowledge or experience maybe anyone else have the same experience?

Yup for GUW. For the math, study a GED book. Addition, subtraction, multiplicaton and long division with decimals and fractions, measurements and conversions. General math, no algibra. Also brush up on spelling, proper sentences and grammar.
