    Hey guys,

    Been a lurker for some time. The posting was opened on Feb 2, 2017 and I applied later that night (keep in mind I have been hounding the website every single day for the past 3 months) and received an email from HR Feb 10, 2017 the same day the posting closed at around 5:11pm being invited to the open house on Feb 23, 2017 7:30am SHARP at Hiberian Hall in Babylon. This is my 7th position I have applied to in 3 months for the LIRR and finally got a response. I actually teared up when I received the email at work because I want this so badly. For people who took the medical already, what are the vision acuity requirements they are looking for? And also, what exactly do they test medically and physically for? (If I make it that far). Looking forward to the ride (pun intended). Will keep u guys posted.

    It's funny cuz I asked other ppl the same question you are asking for the previous 7 positions I have applied for. However, I truly believe that it has mostly to so with some form of luck in the sense that the qualifications are so low but the applicants are so much. It is rumoured to be in the thousands (possibly 10,000) for the Assistant Conductor position. Reason why I say this is that I am sure most people have miles long of customer service and some form of college like myself. Nothing special . Just put together a quality resume apply for every position you are qualified for and hope to get a response. I have been applying for the last 3 months and just got an email. Some other guys been applying for years to no avail.

    That's weird that they are making you go all the way out to Babylon.  Anyway, refer back to my long post in the first couple of pages of this thread if you want some idea of what you're in for.

    Yeah we had to be there for 730 am sharp. It was a pretty large group (over 100 ). Glad to have made it through the cognitive, vocabulary, math and interview. Hoping to hear something back about next steps soon.
