  1. The list from the 2008 exam must have expired. I know it was extended another year but that was Aug 2016. The MTA is very slow in starting this process.
  2. There is a medical exam for Station Agent?
  3. Who knows.. I will call first to find out what the heck is going on. Either Ms. Michelle Rivera-Vargas or DCAS themselves. Like Erik said even if you have to go down in person, do what you have to do. They are hiring so many people each day that sometimes they don't even know what their doing. Good luck to you!!!
  4. Let me weight in on this being that I went through the same thing. If you don't clear your medical in time before they start pulling more names off the list then you will have to reinstate your name back on the list. Meaning unfortunately once you are called again when they pull the next batch of names off the list again, you will have to do the drug test & medical exam all over again. But the good news is you will have top seniority over all the people that were called along with you.???????????? And what I read this Conductor list was extended again.????????????
  5. Thanks Will,thanks a lot. Ur a wonderful guy..
  6. Wha happened Will?? Message won't go through?
  7. I hear u. U should b hearin something pretty soon. Did u do ur lab/drug test??
  8. R u in da Dec 26th class? Wha is ur list # range?
  9. That lady behind counter #3 on the far left is truly an a**hole.
  10. One main problem with 180 Livingston is understaffed & a couple people down there should take a course in common courtesy. Anyway, her e-mail address is Michelle.Rivera-Vargas@nyct.com
  11. It varies from each position & division.
  12. It depends on what Division you go into. Division B is a bit longer than Division A.
  13. Depending on whether you are going in for Conductor or Train Operator?? Train Operator School Car is much longer especially if you get Division B. You will be on 1 year probation from the first day you begin training. After that 1 year is up it's fair to say you are good.
  14. My advice to you is: "DO NOT QUIT YOUR JOB YET"! Take a leave of absence at best. At least two months. By then you will pretty much know whether this new job with Transit is for you or not. But if you can take a 6 month leave of absence to even be on the safer side. Do that instead. No guarantees with passing training for anybody.
  15. Ques: What if someone is XX and been waiting a on job for 7 hrs for example. Then, the Dispatcher says that person has to report for a 10 hr job. I am aware that while XX if there are NO jobs within 8 hrs of waiting on board. You sign out & go home. Paid for the entire day. Now remember you said the rules have changed in the last couple pertaining to working straight hrs. I originally thought it was 16. Now, I am hearing 14. Ok. So here is my ques. What if somebody has been on board for 7 hrs for instances. Then the Dispatcher has a 10 hour job. Does that individual have to take it? Yes or no??
  16. SubwayGuy explained it before. 10 hrs after your shift & 12 hrs when you are XX. Ms. Vargas 1-347-643-8218.
  17. For all you people thinking all this OT. It is not like a regular job where you can work 60 hrs a week or more. Let me explain, this is a "job sensitive position". Therefore, there are restrictions. Like you can only work 16 hrs straight & MUST have a 12 hours rest period afterwards. Also, if you think you can work 7 days a week your wrong. Only 6 days a week. And you have to put a form in requesting you want OT. So they know who to call & who not to call. But when you first start off, otherwise known as XX "extra extra". You may be on board waiting on a job @ times. You get paid as soon as you sign in, then hanging out in the crewroom. So let's say you are on board & in the crewroom for 4 hrs. Then, the Dispatcher has a 8 hour job for you. That is 4 hrs OT just chilling.
  18. Believe it or not, good ques. I believe if you are on nights; on a weekend it is still 10% on top of your pay.
