    A guy I work with brother works for HHC as oiler he said you need to get 100 to be called. Maybe his wrong I hope but from what I hear you need to score very high. I cant see there being to many slots to fill. What did you guys use to study? I just used that Passbook for oiler.

    I took the exam 1/30/14 and filed for both and got a 88.75 on it . i used the passbook and it was useless. maybe 6 questions from it .
    a lot of the stuff i remembered from my refrigeration engineers exam. i believe they will be taking with the selective certifications first. if i remember correctly
    there was about 7 - 10 certifications they were looking for .

    good luck everyone and hope for the best.

    Oiler exam

    Took it 1/3014 scored 88.75 . I'm a plant tender for a city agency w a refer ticket . I spoke w someone this morning who is a boss in engineering at DCAS . He said my score is great due to a high amount of failures . He also said there will be some questions overturned due to them being too vague or having 2 answer

    I am close with someone who is an engineer for dcas. He told me there were close to 3000 people who registered for the exam. He also heard the failure rate has been about 70 percent. So if only 900 passed, and then you figure many will not qualify once experience is checked, and many will not qualify due to failing drug tests or criminal checks, then you cannot even begin to speculate on if you will be called. I am not giving up hope until I see my rank on official paper.

    I got an 85. studied my ass off. At least 15 questions were really oddball. I've been in the steam industry for a decade and some of the questions really confused me. I know provisional oilers that only got in the low 70's so im keeping my fingers crossed

    Yes I believe they will be laid off and replaced from the new list.

    Are all/some oilers local 30 or DC 37?

    Either local 30 or local 15 (DOT). Benny's u wouldn't be offered a provisional (temporary) job . It would be a permanent civil service off a DCAS list .
