    I’m #299, just started the hiring process for parks. You will start to get notifications in the mail and some even email you in advance about a hiring pool for whatever agency is hiring an Oiler. The interview process is all based off list number, the city has a rule of 3 so for every one hire they must interview 3 people. For example you’re 390, so in your pool will be list numbers close to you if they have one position open and call 389, 390 and 391 for an interview they can now hire one of them if the panel feels they are a good fit for the position. Every department uses oilers differently so it would be just like a regular job interview then, as opposed to take the test get the job.

    Hey! Happy New Year everyone!

    I was wondering if anyone had the list of questions they ask at the interview for stationary oiler? I heard there are approximately 12 questions, one being "How do you change out a belt?"

    It’s probably gunna be basic HVAC maintenance questions with DOC. I know there’s 2 spots you can go there, the plant or the Jail itself and they are 2 very different places.
    From what I hear the plant is where you wanna be. The jail is golden handcuffs, mandatory OT, no phones allowed and when they lock down you’re locked down. Basically going to jail everyday. But bright side is you can always transfer out!
    Good luck guys

    Hey sorry for the late reply, my questions were heavy refrigeration. Like basic ref cycle, specific tools for proper recovery and evac, situational questions for diagnostics so nothing you wouldn’t be prepared for. Parks oilers do a lot of AC and boiler work. But every agency is a little different DEP was heavy with boilers and DOT was mainly types of grease.

    Yeah if there’s an opening at another agency that has oilers once the list expires you can transfer. So if you hate DOC you can bolt.

    Hey guys I was wondering if there is any word on the oiler exam coming out? Does anyone have any recommendation for study material? I see the oiler passbook but I hear that book doesn’t contain much of what’s on exam.
    Thanks a lot!

    I have no clue. Was there an announcement to sign up for exam? Did we all miss it? Or did you guys sign up?

    I heard the previous exam expires in March 2021. I have no clue what’s true.

    That's only the first page of the document. Anybody familiar with the incidents described in the document? Of course many of said incidents could have been avoided by simply exercising common sense, discipline, respect, safe work procedures, and always maintaining situational awareness around the machines this particular oiler was working on prior to the proceeding brought against him. This should be quite obvious to those privy to the aforementioned information. That being said, I'm sure any of us can use this as an educational tool to ensure we all stay up to snuff as mechanics and operators, regardless of where you work or what your exact position title is!
