    It took about 2 weeks for them to respond. And I didn't get a letter-they called me

    Thanks! I will pass it on.

    there are wayyy too many conductors that why hiring has been at a standstill veteran conductors arent retiring fast enough also...if your not in now your gonna wait a while or perhaps never be called...

    If they are hiring it's very small classes. It seems like they have too many conductors.Hopefully the older timers will retire and everyone waiting will get a chance.

    Im back ! Well last time I was here I was wondering where you guys are A or B division am's or pm's Its been almost 7 months now since I got the conductor job and I don't see NUNYA !

    B div. Yesterday I was on the L,

    I was in the last conductors class. Our induction date was June 30th. I'm in the A division. What I can say is that some people decide that they don't want the job after a few months. This might be because they did not prepare themselves. It's not going to be easy when you first start. If you get that straight in your head you will not be so disappointed when things get tough.

    I mean for example shift changes and changes regarding your days off. They are a little reasonable in the sense that they always give you two days off in a row. You won't know what those two days will be unless you are religious excuse or something. I have Thursdays and Fridays because Friday is my religious day and they keep me on PMs. I've had it easier than others. The shifts can change from AM, PM and midnight. You will also work on various lines. One day reporting here and the next there. This not to scare anyone but some of my classmates are talking about quitting because of the instability. What do you expect? You have to start somewhere.

    I used to do long distance trucking so I was ready for the bouncing around. Borough to borough is not like state to state. Everyone has a breaking point. Be prepared to be pushed to your breaking point. I see guys reporting to work in the middle of the night. That would push me to my breaking point.

    Just be prepared to stick it out that's all.

    We were also told that we would be the last class for a while.
