  1. Conductor 8094 Hiring Process

    They already delayed seating anyone from 6601 for a year when they extended the 8094 list at the last minute. Putting a provisional 6601 test-taker in one of the last 8094 classes, when Transit said they were extending 8094 in order to hire more people from 8094, and that the 6601 list would issue in the next few months, seems kind of strange. I've given up trying to understand Transit's ways. I just want my chance to prove myself. Good luck to everyone.

    @123melvin, I don't see how we won't be next, as they've already processed the promotional conductors. Hopefully they keep hiring large numbers of conductors in each school car class. If that's the case then we should have a chance to get hired in the next year or two.

    @Bmpo7, will the list be posted on the MTA website? I know these official hiring lists used to be (still are?) posted in The Chief, but you need a subscription to view anything in The Chief.
  4. Conductor 8094 Hiring Process

    Well, at least there's a lot of conductors in the school car class. Transit hasn't even estimated when the 6601 list will issue.
  5. Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    FYI, someone on the 8094 thread just said that there's at least one person from the 6601 list in his school car class that started yesterday. I guess that would be a provisional hire? I know Transit has been doing that for station agents, hiring and training them before the official list issues.
  6. Conductor 8094 Hiring Process

    @Draya, that's wild. So they've started mixing classes. Must be provisional hiring of people with very high "unofficial" list numbers, as the official 6601 list hasn't yet come out.
  7. 6 train being a rookie line

    @RTOMan, true. And I know every line has to be staffed on all shifts, so you go where you're needed. I meant lines with the most overtime on each division. If you're looking to make as much money as you can.
  8. Conductor 8094 Hiring Process

    @Cdd, as far as you know, will the Jan 16th class be the last 8094 conductor class, or is there another class scheduled for 8094?
  9. 6 train being a rookie line

    So what are the best lines in each division? And the worst?
  10. Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    @Schecter, we're in the same situation. If I calculated my raw score correctly than I'm at 95 or 96. I can't remember which, I threw away my self-reported answer sheet months ago. Please keep us posted as to when you get the OPA letter and I'll do the same.
  11. Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    @vj17, I think they chose people with very high unofficial scores to do the OPA before the official scores are released. Transit probably has had the list ready for months, but there's no point releasing it until they finish hiring from the old open/competitive conductor list.
  12. Conductor 8094 Hiring Process

    @Crozay, do you mean they're hiring 150 conductors a month?
  13. Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    @Rahmel, thanks for the update. It's very frustrating how long this has taken. The only positive seems to be that the 6601 list should issue and they should start processing people from 6601 by spring of next year, 2018. I wonder what date will be the final school car class for 8094. and the first school car class for 6601. I'm also wondering how fast they'll be hiring off 6601, and how many people they'll be processing per month.
  14. Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    @ren, that's like the million dollar question. So much depends on how the scores shake out - how many people actually score in the 90s, then how many don't pass OPA or drug screenings or have holds for medical or other reasons. And how fast they're hiring once the list comes out. I'm thinking maybe 3 years from now. We shall see...

    @Dave2836, @Steelix500, I was wrong. I apologize. I
