    Well it's not really a gamble as you're guaranteed a permanent job once your list number comes up. And the one year probation is a criteria for remaining on the job regardless of whether you're provisional or permanent. Just be on time everyday, don't call out sick or get customer complaints the first year and you'll be fine.

    I hope it's just like that. Do one year to pass probation, wait for the list to be established, then become permanent. Maybe I'm just salty given the title has a precursor "temporary".

    Since the classes start in about 2 weeks I am now getting ready to purchase some training uniforms. Can anyone advise what the exact uniform that MTA supplies is? How many pieces do they provide? Do they provide footwear for all titles or is it just track workers? I read in other posts that it takes a while to get the uniform, so I would like to know in order to gauge how many items i should purchase on my own to last me through training. Thanks for the responses in advance.

    Don't buy more than three light blue shirts and navy blue slacks or work pants. S/A's aren't required to wear safety shoes, so no foot wear is provided for you. You have to wear either dark brown or black shoes or boots to work. Your uniform allotment will consist of 6 long sleeve, 6 short sleeves, 3 winter pants, 2 all season pants, 6 ties, one trooper hat, 3 sweaters, and one coat. Depending on the availability of your sizes once measured by the uniform company, you can get your uniforms within 2 weeks or a couple of months. It all just depends if they have your sizes ready once the order is placed. If it's longer than two weeks, only then would I suggest buying more work clothes. Other than that 3 should be just fine to get you through one week of working.

    Nov 7 class graduated today. Good luck to us on the road.

    For those guys coming into class on Dec 12, I must reiterate what's been said before on these forums.

    Listen to your Supervisors. Read your books. Be humble, BE PUNCTUAL, and be nice. When the supervisor takes the time to explain something, that means it's important, even if the lesson is taught through an anecdotal story.

    Congrats to you and your classmates. Follow all the advice you posted and you'll do well. This job can be very mentally stressful so be prepared for that. Class can't prepare you for all you're about to encounter. Any questions you may have don't hesitate to ask!

    Good morning everyone. I just got a call today for a employment screening on 1/13 at 180 Livingston st. Anyone else get the call?
    Should i dress as if i was going to an interview? Whats the employment screening process like? Did you have to bring a copy of your resume as well?

    For those of you that have already completed the training class in December how have things been? Have you been working steady hours like a permanent employee? Is there anymore clarification on the temporary title?

    Hopefully i can find out more information for you guys when i go. Any updated information will be greatly appreciated.

    Yes dress in business attire You'll likely see some folks down there not dressed properly, but don't mind it, you're there for your chance at getting a job, not theirs.And no you don't need to bring a copy of your resume. Basically you're just bringing in the documents they requested on the paper mailed to you or what they instructed you to bring in over the phone. All you'll be doing this first day is taking a urine(drug test) exam. Once you've taken the exam you'll be instructed to go back to the main desk and they'll hand you a 20 page application. On This application you'll need to fill in all the information of schooling, criminal history for the past 10 years( If felonies submit them even if they're past 10 years for good measure) if any, and work history for the past 10 years. Now since you have 3 days before going down there I'd suggest getting a print out from the social security office of all you work history.

     

    If all come back good with you urine they'll call you back for final processing. Now getting the call back can be real soon or much later. some people have had to take urine exams upwards of 3 times. The test are only good for 60-90 days I believe.Once you're called back for final processing you'll turn in that 20 page application, be finger printed, have your picture taken for you pass(Employee Metrocard ID), and be sworn in. They hand you the rule book and give you a class start date.That's about it in a nutshell. Hopefully all works out for you.
