Hello, everyone...I'm being called in to be tested for a position as a Route Analyst for our regional transit authority (position summary below).
The lady said that I would be tested for my reading/math/spelling skills, which is straight forward. She also said I'd undergo a 'technical' test, although she doesn't think it'll involve any specialized software (but she's getting back to me on that tomorrow).
Does anyone who may work in a related capacity (Transportation Planner or similar) have any ideas or advice as to what I should expect and how best to prepare for the technical part of the test?
Thanks to everyone for their input!
