  1. I went down to 180 Livingston Street on May 22nd for pre-interview for Conductor and everyone had their drug test done that day. However, they didn't want to do my drug test that day because I had two previous fines with the MTA (for walking between subway cars in 2007 and for riding the Bx12 Select Bus without the receipt from the machine in 2011). So I had to go TAB which is across the street from 180 Livingston and get the disposition and I brought that back to 180 Livingston the same day (May 22nd). When I gave the disposition letter to the lady, I asked her if I was going to do the drug test and she said "not today, management has to go over this with a decision and we will call you back or send you a letter in the mail, one or the other". So I said "ok" and then I was done for the day. Thing is that this was a month ago and they haven't neither called me nor sent me any letter. I'm worried that I might have gotten disqualified from working for the MTA just because of those fines. Oh and by the way I paid both fines promptly when I got those summonses. So the fact that I didn't do the drug test that day unlike everyone else and also that I haven't heard from them when they said to everyone that they will call them back in a couple of weeks to come back and get sworn it and they haven't called me and its been a month now I'm really worried that they are not going to hire me. Should I call them and ask what happened? If anyone on here has any info regarding this please comment on this post. I really want this job and I never ever imagined that getting summonses for MTA violations would actually impact me in getting a job with the MTA. Its not like I committed a crime or something serious like that so I find this ridiculous, especially since I paid both fines, and especially since I was honest about it on the form they mailed me along with the pre-employment letter last month. So I'm very concerned about this. I think I should call them and see what happened
  2. Lol ya people are too funny. The reason why I keep asking these questions over and over is because I have to be there at 7:30 and its all the way in Brooklyn (I live in The Bronx) and its really not pleasant to have to get up at 5 AM and goes thru the whole process to then find out ur not getting hired. I really don't wanna waste my time, I'm just trying to get info and then decide based on that wether or not I should go or get myself out of the list and reinstate it later when I graduate from school
  3. Just got the letter for the pre-interview for Conductor. Have to go on May 22nd. Is this an actual interview or what is it that happens there? Is that the day I will know if I'm getting hired or not? Also once hired, what does the training consist of? Is the training tough? I heard that one of the things is jumping hoops, what is that? Also, having been fired from a previous job will affect my chances of getting hired by the TA? Does having bad credit also affect? Why does it state on the letter that I need to a bring a Driver's License? All I have is a non-driver ID and I didn't know a license was required to be a Conductor. I'm not really liking some things I'm becoming aware of, makes me think that my chances of getting hired will be slim, and this is a job I really want, especially since I'm currently unemployed
  4. Via Garibaldi 8, thanks so much for the advice. I appreciate it and I will look into the things you told me, especially if the MTA doesn't hire me. And I don't have an attitude problem, thing is that my patience was exhausted with that manager because she always kept giving me and some (not all) of my other co-workers an attitude which is being two-faced on her part since she wasn't like that with everyone. I just that the MTA supervisors aren't like her in the event I do get hired which I hope
  5. Wow all this got me really worried, I really hope the MTA doesn't care about this and they'll hire me. I really want this job, it pays really good. Plus its time for me to get back to work and no depend on my father anymore for financial support. About the credit check, I'll consider getting into my dad's credit thing, he has excellent credit. Also, another question, do you know what happens at the pre-interview, what shoud I expect? Is this a medical exam? Also, if anything comes out wrong in the medical, they won't hire the person? I'm totally healthy and I have no known medical issues, but I'm just curious about this
  6. I just called for pre-interview for conductor for May 22nd. I got fired from CVS/pharmacy for threatning to punch a manager in the face. This happen back in 2007 and i've been unemployed ever since. I got 99 weeks of unemployment, I've also been in school full time since 2010, been getting food stamps, ect. Anyway, I'm concerned that the MTA won't hire me because of this? Or what if I try to hide this info from them, would they find out? Another thing, it states on the letter that they do a credit check. Why a credit check to work as a conductor? I don't understand that. I have bad credit right now, is that also a factor in not getting hired? I'm very concerned about these things I'm about to turn 26 years old on May 23rd, actually the day after the pre-interview. The altercation with the CVS assistant manager was because she was always giving me a really bad attitude for no apparent reason and one day I just got fed up with it and I coulnd't put up with it anymore. I was only 20 years old back then so I was still sort of immature. Big reason for the gap in unemployment was because I got 99 weeks of unemployment, I was focusing 100% in school, and I was having a hard time finding a job because of I got I fired from CVS due to the altercation with a supervisor and no employer wanted to hire me becuase of it. About the credit, its not really that I have bad credit actually, its that I have no credit history. Is this still a problem with getting hired? I really want this job, I waited 4 and a half years for it. My list # is 1162. I haven't worked for nearly 6 years and I've been dependent on my father. It's time for me to get a job and have my own money, I'm getting older and I don't know when I'm a be able to find a job. Jobs are so scarce nowadays and with this problem I had with CVS, its been nearly impossible for an employer to hire me. I've been looking for jobs for quite awhile now

  9. I just got a letter from the MTA for Subway Conductor position. I took test #8094 back in December 2008 and my list number is #1162. The letter was a total surprise for me because after waiting so long (4 and a half years), I actually thought I wasn't going to get called for this job. And this I got caught by surprise, I'm not actually yet ready for this sort of job due to personal reason. Anyway, there's several questions that I have. First, the letter says its a Pre-Interview, does this meant that the hiring process isn't going to begin yet? Also it says that I have to take some hearing test when I report to the pre-interview. What's this hearing test about? Also, another thing I'm currently in college full time and I really want to finish up school before taking any job that will force me to leave to school. I should be graduating by the end of this year, in December. Is there any way I can't post-pone appointment for a later date? The letter states that I could decline appointment but that causes my name to get off of the list and I don't want that. I really want this job, I'm just not currently ready for this kinda job due to its long working hours and having to be available at anytime of the day/night and be willing to work any schedule. Its not that I'm lazy, I just simply want to finish up school and take care of some other obligations I currently have before taking a job like this. I don't want my name off of the list, I waited too long for this, but on the other hand I was hoping they would call me later this year (within about 6 months from I should be ready). What can I do regarding this? Also, what are the chances of getting hired? Do I have to pass all medical exams? Is there any other part of the hiring process that's required? Does getting fired from a previous job due to making a threat to a supervisor/manager have any effect on getting hired with the MTA? I need to know everything because right now I don't know what to expect regarding this job. Thanks for the info
  10. I was wondering if its possible to transfer from one express bus to another express bus with a pay-per-ride metrocard?
  11. Hi, I took the Conductor #8094 Exam in December 2008. I have a list number of 1162, is there any chance of being called in the near future? Also, I'm currently in Colllege full time and I have a couple of other personal reasons in which I may not be ready for the job at this time, so if I do get called in the near future is there away to reject the job and back on the list to be called at a future date or will they take me off the list and I will have to re-take the next exam to go on a new list? Also, last month I received a letter from the MTA inviting me to take the test for Bus Operator saying they have immediate openings for Bus Operators (which I didn't take the test for B/O since I don't have a driver's license). What is the purpose of this B/O exam if I'm on the list for conductor?
