  1. If they are bringing in people for provisional positions, they are done with the promotional list. It would screw up the seniority numbers and create a conflict with pick rights. Spoke with a previous partner who was hoping to be promoted and last he knew was a June Class and hasn’t heard anything since.
  2. Tier 6 is anyone that came from exam 8098 and later. So basically anyone with 5 1/2 years that didn’t come from another title or City/State job. It’s 55/25 for tier 6.

    The Schoolcar Experience

    5 years and a schoolcar instructor😂. We are still learning our job at 5 years. I said from day one that it’s a mistake taking new TSS’s from our time frame into schoolcar. Got too many cowboys on the road as new TSS’s and now they are teaching. Shame! Either way, congrats. But we still rookies and I’ll never understand how transit decides shit like this. I know who you are, word goes around like forget it. Maybe you’ll say hello one day at Main. Good luck, I’m a road dog for life! Peace....

    T/O Exam # 8098

    Being in the yard already we seem to have been saved from making the trip to Brooklyn. We had a tss come and speak with us yesterday. He sat on train as we made moves as they do. Sucks for that guy or girl, but by the time you get to the yard you should know the basics of the job.

    Since we have been released to the yard for a month and a week now, maybe we won't be summoned. Whatever it is, it is.

    As per MTA rule you must wear their footwear.....unless you get a Dr.s note. The shoes you wear after that must be approved by the MTA. Not sure what they would approve though. In my opinion, if you do that, now they know you have bad feet.......

    This time it didn't. Believe me when I tell you,a multiple choice. He still works here to this day. I wouldn't make it up.

    Fyi, that doesn't always hold true about the multiple choice questions. We had one guy blow one and he is still here. Not guaranteed, but he made it. If you have no clue, and they see who doesn't have a clue, missing a multiple choice is not a good look I am sure.

    Guys, the signal exam isn't as hard as we make it out to be. By the time you take it, you have gone over and over the signals so much you can't help but pass. Just keep it in your head you have to learn them word for word and you will be fine. 2 people in my class got one answer "wrong" on the exam. One was a write in and one was a multiple choice question. The superintendent called them in and asked them to explain it to him, which they did correctly. They are still here today. Just keep in mind, that is not a guarantee. You will do fine. We had a couple of other classmates that didn't get it right away and even messed up on some signals on a quiz a week or so before the signal exam. They too are still here. I found that we put so much pressure into that exam because it's the finite. Believe me when I say, it's not that hard, you will be ready. No worries, just study and listen.

    Rtopro hit the nail on the head, his view of how things go are right on. I have only been here for a few months and I see it. I just carry myself as I belong there, because right now I do. Keep in mind, if you fail a quiz you get tutoring for 2 hrs, which you get paid for. You don't get fired for failing a quiz. Exams and practices are another story. 2 chances......that's it, well only one with the signal exam. And the 2nd chance for everything else is with a superintendent and quizzes are write ins. Pay attention, it's not that hard if you pay attention and apply yourself. Good luck

    We get paid next week. And count 2 weeks after that and that will be your first paycheck. It's every other Thursday. On the bright side, you guys are starting on the beginning of the pay period, so you guys will get a full paycheck. I recommend getting direct deposit asap, it takes a couple of paychecks to kick in. Not sure about when checks are processed, shouldn't worry about calling out. Not until after your 1st year unless it is a BIG emergency, that's my opinion on that matter. I went to Work n gear for my clothes. My uniforms came within a week and a few days after measurement.
