  1. oh, that's a new thing now , I was called for Signal Maintainer, I know the training is a lot so that's why its probably conditional?
  2. hey guys I got called for final processing and was told to bring in money orders for finger printing and process fee, since when MTA does this? I thought this would come out of your first check BTW , what is conditional position?

    Exam 7609: Transit Electrical Helper

    those guys who say they never took a test are the ones who came in by resume , they HAVE to pass the test in order to become permanent, some guys are just not cut out for exams and got to comfortable as a provisional, so if you pass your exam or even get a list# from education and experience your still above them

    Transit Electrical Helper Exam # 8606

    i have to go in next Sunday 3/25/18 for electrical helper BUT, I took the signal maintainer practical exam in April 2017 and got called on OCT 2017, took a drug test and pre-employment , the letter states Temporary position but I guess you start off like that till your permanent , I didn't hear back from them until 3/15/18 to come in for another drug test..i actually gave up on this exam after not hearing for months..so I went in on 3/16/18 and I had to redue back my pre-employment application and drug test which is crazy ..they said the application and drug test aren't good anymore after 3 months..so now I am thinking not to go thru with he electrical helper now since I got called for signal maintainer?

    Exam 7609: Transit Electrical Helper

    even if you take this other exam in July you will be hired as provisional, the education and experience is the same thing as you taking the exam "multiple choice" both you get a list # when established, if I was you I would take this signal maintainer exam that is currently out now and work as a helper in the mean time ..look at provisional as probation time that's all, I hardly heard of MTA laying off people

    Exam 7609: Transit Electrical Helper

    my thing is this, I applied for exam 8606 as an "experience and education" application vs taking an exam for this...got a letter yesterday to come in 3/25/18 which is a SUNDAY? for a oral communication test , ( they just want to see if you know English) this is for a provisional position , would this ever change to Permanent? do we get a list # from this ? I paid $61 for this application just like any other exam vs resume I also passed the signal maintainer exam and was called in for a drug test in oct 2017 but never heard anything back, when I called they now telling me there taking people from the old list , so that was just a waste of my time

    Question about MTA hiring signal maintainers

    hey Matt, my concern was that they will only hire internals and what happens to the one who pass the test from the streets? couldn't MTA get in trouble for only hiring internals off the list and that's it? the practical is a hands on test to see if you can use a multimeter and take apart a particular part from the train I believe and put it back together by following the instruction's provided and using the correct tools you will have wire up a board by reading a blueprint

    Question about MTA hiring signal maintainers

    I called 180 Livingston and was told by the person who does the hiring for signal maintainers that she didn't get the OK yet to hire and if they do it will be INTERNALS only, so what happens to the people who came off the street that was called in for pre-employment and drug test?
