  2. Man I feel like they have been stuck with that 4255 number for the longest. @mikeems1
  3. Oh okay, what number did she say they were up too? @mikeems1.
  4. Hopefully we do @mikeems1. Hopefully. @tprashad0719, good luck with your first practical, you're gonna be alright man. Wish you the best of luck.
  5. @tprashadp0719, thanks for the good advice bro
  6. Hopefully within the next 2 weeks we should be expecting a call @mikeems1
  7. To all candidates who begin this Monday November 30th good luck!!!! Wish you guys the best!!! Keep us updated on what goes on. @tprashad0719, how you making out brother, any updates on those TSS meetings this week? @mikeems1,we're next bro, hang in there, anytime soon we should be expecting a call. Anyone got called for medical this week or scheduled for next week, anybody recieved a call today? Thanks for the update and may everyone enjoy your weekend!!!!
  8. @mikeems1, hey bro. I'm doing good. Hanging in there. Crossing my fingers we get a call next week or something. I called Ms Rivera to find out when is the next class and she said December 28th. I'm assuming me and you shall be in that class. Let's see what next week brings.
  9. Congratulations to everyone who got called for medical and final processing. Hope everything goes very well. Good luck!!!@mikeems, my brother we're very very close. Let's hang in there. We're next!!! @statensirt...if someone can't start that date for any reason, contact them and let them know if it's possible to be put on the following class.
  10. That's how they work. I think they call alot of people for drug test so in case alot of people fail the drug test, they have enough more to keep calling for medical. Remember that urine is good for 90 days. I've heard of people that go past the 90 days and have to come back for another drug test. That happened to me when I became a Conductor. But let see what happens the next few weeks. Hopefully we're very close.
  11. Oh okay K423, I was told yesterday the same thing when I called. I was surprised to find out that they still haven't fill up the class for the 30th of this month. I was surprised because the 30th is almost around the corner and if anything they should have the class set up already. But let's see what happens Mikeems1.
  12. Definitely bro @mikeems1....its Tuesday today and instead of letters now we're hoping to get a phone call soon. Hopefully we hear that phone ring soon. @tprashad0719, how you making out brother? Don't stress bro,.take it one step at a time. Concentrate on passing your first yard practical. How's the cutting and addings? Is it difficult? @k423, did you call them to find out what's your status?
  13. Hey @mikeems1, everything went well yesterday. Very smooth. I was supposed to go today but they didn't give me the day off so they told be to go a day before which falls on my RDO. I hear there is a class the 30th of this month but didn't hear anything about them trying to fit in more people. Hopefully you and me can make it. Next step is to wait for that phone call to come back in for Medical and final processing. That's basically the day you're in there for the most part of the day and they do a full medical on you and get sworned in. They told me that they'll call me in 2 to 90 days. Which I believe it will be way less than than. Let's see what happens bro. Did they say anything else?
  14. @tprashad0719 thanks my brother I remember those days walking at 207 St Yard and learning about the R-42's and R-32's.... and @mikeems1 thank you too. I'm really exited and it's a great feeling to know that I finally got this letter. The drug test basically consist of getting there and hand in your completed application as well as them performing a urine check on you and remember to go back 10 years as far as your background. List all the jobs you've had in the past and addresses where you have lived etc...I won't be a whole day thing depending on how many people there. Bring your completed application, S.S card, ID , passport if you wish, birth certificate, just in case bring your H.S diploma too. Now when you're done with the drug test they will tell you to leave a number where you can be reached for them to call you in for a medical and final processing. That's the big day where you'll be in the for the most part of the day. It's recommended to bring in snacks as well. And yes, a TSS rode my train yesterday and he advised to study signals atleast 1 hour a day to make the test a little more easier to pass. Even though we all get nervous and things happen unfortunately but let's be positive and try to nail this guys. Good luck to all and let's keep in touch. Anybody else wanna share helpful thoughts we appreciate it very much.
  15. @mikeems1...Hey my brother did you opened up your mailbox today? I opened mines up to FINALLY find the letter I was expecting for Drug test for Train Operator. My list number is few higher than yours so I'm pretty sure you got your letter today latest tomorrow. Keep me updated. I gotta go November 13th at 7:30am for Drug exam. @tprashad0719, right behind you my brother. Hope all is well with you.
