  1. The application for this position begins December 9, 2016. http://web.mta.info/nyct/hr/appexam.htm It also says on the bottom of the page to look through their exam archives for previous Notices of Examination for that job. I couldn't find it there, but I found an old one from 2009 here: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcas/downloads/pdf/noes/200808098000.pdf Question to anyone who can advise me: What EXACTLY do they ask you on the Education and Experience form? Does anyone have a blank sample they might be willing to share? I ask this because I found on another forum that applicants for T/O filled it out seemingly correctly and still got DQ'd: http://www.city-data.com/forum/new-york-city/703253-took-mta-train-operator-exam-got-14.html Do you need pay stubs? What DO you need? Has anyone been through this before? Does college work sudy count? Also, what does it mean when they say part-time work experience will be "pro-rated"? What is that?

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    All of us? Including someone with a list number of 95XX ? Will they go through the list fast enough to reach that far down before it expires?

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    That's the thing, the previous exam 8094 was extended for 8 years over the usual 4. I'm just concerned if they could get around to reaching that far down the list in 4 years.

    How long did it take them to reach that number?

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    So if you're 95XX on the list, do you have any realistic shot of being called?

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Now let me get this straight - am I to understand that they will get deep into the 9000's calling people from the list this soon? Or is this a question of list numbers being randomly selected by the MTA out of order?

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    So a score like 95xx would be the equivalent of what? And how long could someone expect to wait if they're in that range?

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    If you landed in the 9,500 range on this list, do you have any chance of getting called?

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    When do you reckon they'll start calling people with scores in the range of 92, 91, in how many years do you figure?

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    So 2,250 OPA letters were sent out so far? How many more do they plan to send out before they fill their quota?

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Those of you who got called in for OPA, are you from the promotional list or those who came in off tne street for the exam? If someone got 6 wrong off tne street, are they likely to get called for OPA?

    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    What range would one need to be in to qualify as "high scoring"?
  13. ren

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    I got 92.5. Hopefully the protest session will bump it up a little higher. How do you figure your wait will take four to five years?
  14. ren

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    If you got a 92.5, when can you expect to be called up (if at all)?

    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    Is there a procedure whereby the qualifications can be set to extend past the filing date upon an applicant's request? Meaning, you had your qualification requirements satisfied after the filing period expired but they give you an application to ask for waiving the deadline until the date you actually are called in? If there is such a mechanism, I wanna know about it...

    If I have a Learner's Permit, is that gonna count if I got my license AFTER Dec 27?

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    So does anyone know if the process of adjusting the scores based on feedback from the protest sessions has concluded?
  18. ren

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Well the most important thing as far as I am concerned is how the protest sessions will impact the compilation of the final list. Hopefully they'll throw several questions out. I was told not long ago by a lady train operator that the MTA has a "severe need" for conductors. Maybe they'll run really deep into this new list, 6601.

    Regarding how the protest session works: How is this done behind the scenes, does anyone know? How is a protest evaluated? Meaning, what criteria are used to decide whether an answer should be counted as correct pursuant to a protest?
  20. ren

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Ok, I pm'd you, sorry about that thing.
  21. ren

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Did you go to the protest session?
  22. ren

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    The answer to that question depends on how many questions which were protested are tossed out. I am still wondering how that works. What happened in 8094? Can anyone explain how the protest session works? What determines a revision of the questions and answers? There were 80 questions in 6601. So for example, in my case, I got 74/80 If I protest three wrong answers, and they are tossed, does it become 74/77 or 77/80? (In the first scenario, I get 96.1039, in the second 96.25. That is a BIG difference). Also, is there individual discretion involved in this? Meaning, if one applicant protests and his answer is granted or the question is struck, is that extended to all test takers or just that protestor? I would like to know how these protests are evaluated.

    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    Thanks for the info. Can you tell me who sets the qualifications for the position of T/O? Is that at the Exams Unit at 180 Livingston? or elsewhere? What I would like to do is ask if they could perhaps adjust the requirement so that they defer the 5 years experience requirement. Like making the cutoff date as the day of appointment to schoolcar instead of the date of applying for the exam.

    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    I have another question about qualifications for T/O: The education and experience requirement asks for 5 years of paid full-time work, with part-time work being pro-rated, and with up to 4 years of college being able to substitute for the work requirement (30 credits for each year of work to be substituted). So suppose I have 76 credits. Could that count as 2.5 years? And if so, let's also suppose that I have about 2 years of work-study in college, which is part-time. There were about maybe 2-3 months in those 2 years when I wasn't working. In total, I would have about maybe 4.5 years or so of combined work/education. Would that be sufficient to satisfy the 5 year requirement? Or put it another way, do they allow rounding off years and months? Say, 4.5 into 5? And would they "pro-rate" the part-time work experience?
