  1. I SECOND EVERYTHING !!!!! A lot of people have relatives that have been in Transit for YEARS and YEARS...New Transit is not like the old...We are drilled day in day out..If you mess up, FESS UP..Eyes and ears everywhere..Trains for the most part, can talk. They do not like people that 'LIE' down in the MTA..Your life there will be short lived. Study..Rest, and then when you feel like you have studied enough..Study more...GOOD LUCK ALL !! It is a new way of life..
  2. There is a lot of questions about money, days off, leaving other paying jobs, etc. on this forum.. In a nutshell...I am going through training myself...It is really tough. I was in an industry my whole life and this is all new to me. ( I am a bit older than you guys in their 30's) add about 10 years. It is about studying and following the rules. The feeling when you get the letter in the mail is only the beginning. They will tell you, it is all about what you put into it. I am not out of the woods by any stretch of the imagination. I still have signal tests to pass, etc.. yes, you start is Monday-Friday for the first few months. Then all bets are off. Money is good, and yes they pay during training, you WORK for it. When you get home from school car at night, it is not over for the day. I don't want to speak for everyone, I LIVE, SLEEP, EVERYTHING MTA at this point. IT IS A CAREER..Forget about previous jobs where you were the boss..You are stripped of all seniority and power...( remember when you started your first days of school..) I hope this helps a bit..Good luck..any questions, I will try to also answer..Good luck..J
