  1. The waiting list for the previous exam #8094 given in 2008 expired this past February. I’m fully aware of the wait, not sure what you’re trying to imply here.
  2. That makes more sense. Perhaps they want to slow down and play catch up, since so many people already took the OPA and even the PE. Makes no sense to continue to send out PE a noticed until some classes from this year graduate. Remember not everyone that goes to school car will actually graduate.
  3. It’s in Brooklyn, however, training is held out on the field and that could be in a number of different locations.
  4. If I were unionized I wouldn’t jump either. For a lot of us that’s a big reason for wanting to get into the MTA. It’s not the greatest job in the world, in fact it’s quite the opposite. As as far as OPA results, they don’t take as long as what it took for us to get our official test results and list #. For those that started school car last month, I believe many of them took the OPA back in November.
  5. You’re the second person to confirm OPA notices for the 3K range. Awesome man. Good luck. 9K range OPA notices I’m thinking perhaps by the end of the year.
  6. I think so. Being that so many people took the test and lots of us share the same score, they needed some way to organize the list # order besides our names, so they’re using the 5th digit of your SS# for your spot. I checked for my name in the City spreadsheet and there’s like 8 other people with the same first and last name as me. lol.
  7. They’re in the 3K range for OPA notice already? Awesome. This list is moving quicker than I thought. I’m in the 95XX range and I was thinking at least another 1 1/2 - 2 years before I even receive a notice. No dress code for OPA but don’t dress like a bum either lol I believe the OPA is memorization and second part they present you with images and you have to respond to their questions about it accordingly You’re also recorded for your responses I believe this is more to gauge how well and clearly you speak Good luck man and congrats
  8. Take the promo and when MTA calls, split from your current job. I understand it looks a bit unprofessional but this affects you not them. MTA is a guaranteed unionized job with pension. To put it into perspective, I gave 10 years of my life to a company that in the end filed for bankruptcy and threw me to the side (along with most of the company) when all was said and done. Also on a a side note, you will not be able to have your current job and also take school car training. School car training lasts 6 months I believe and it’s an all day thing (sometimes nights as well). Hope that helps.
  9. Dude where can I look into this? My father in law was a doorman for years. Recently retired with a pension but I hear it’s incredibly hard to get into. If you do it’s via relative or good friend.
  10. While that could be the case, I would remain optimistic. Continue to live your life and apply to other city positions within the MTA. In contrast, the last conductor test # 8094 just expired this past February. Mind you that exam was given back in 2008 which a few of my friends took. One already moved up from conductor to TO by 2012.
  11. Probably in another 1 1/2 years. I got 92.5 and my # is 95XX so I’m looking at 1 1/2 - 2 years. But who knows, it could be sooner. Many people may drop out for a number of reasons, (drug,medical, another job/no longer interested). So it could move slower or faster depending on their needs at the time.
  12. So 9K range list # at least another 1 1/2 - 2 years.
  13. Yeah that’s tough. But you’re right, the only difference is the pension. But you’re also 2 1/2 years from potentially making 6 digits, which is nowhere near MTA.
  14. Seriously? You sure it’s not the 600 range and not 6,000?
  15. Was that for the 8094 test? Or a different one? That’s horrible man.
