I signed up for the NYC Sanitation exam. It's not til February but the filing is done in October. If the server crashing at midnight is an indication, a ton of people are also going to take it. It's a test given often, and the list of candidates lasts for several years. Despite the odds of having to score a perfect score and a ton of luck is needed to even get called in for the next stage of the process, I'm still taking the test. What do I have to lose? I do know given the price charged to take the test, the city gets a nice chunk of change. I may sign up for other tests because I NEED to get out of my current job!!!!
