  1. So finally I did the sleep apnea test. Took long I had issues with my insurance. The mta said they wanted 1 month of the cpac. But after I took the first sleep apnea study over night. The sleep apnea staff said I don't have sleep apnea and I slept without any issues. Will this be acceptable you think ?. Waiting for paper work from doctors. To take off medical hold. When I have it do I go back to 180 livingston or reestablish my number back on list or what ?
  2. Bring blue pens for the applications. You're going to be dealing with counter 3. They're going to check for cdl, identifications etc. They're going to tell you to fill out the paper work and sign it but don't put any dates on it. And they're going to tell you NOT TO FILL OUT THE PENSION PART. WHEN YOU GET TO PENSIONS PART STOP. She will then tell you to move to the other part towards medical. They will call by your ticket. The lady at the medical counter will call you up and give you instructions for the computer. It's a medical survey yes or no. Then you go back to the counter. And then you will sit down and wait to be called in for medical. This is for medical.
  3. When you get a call or notice. Confirm that its correct while they are talking to you. And then later on if you can. Sometimes these things happen. I know a guy came all the way from long island for no reason. Happens.
  4. Okay so I went in today for medical. Make sure you have a blue ball pen. Fill out the information they give you. Don't put any dates. When you get to pensions dont do anything. Now medical. I have blood pressure, they check your blood pressure. Mine was high. So they said no problem relax, so we take the eye exam, weight and height. We go back to blood pressure. Still kind of high, no problem will check again in a few. So now we have to do ekg. This monitor's the heart rate as well. And does a print out at the end. They monitored me for about 20 minutes. Btw shirt is off and belt. Pants you keep on. Blood pressure was still high. So they said let's get a hearing test. So we do a hearing test. I'm sure you guys have done this before when you're kids. Push the button when you hear the beeps. So now we go back to the ekg room. I lay there for about 25 or 30 min. Almost sleep. They check my blood pressure without the machine. Now I'm getting okay readings. They send me back to the lobby. I wait. I get called back by one of the supervisors. She looks at what was done to me today. Makes you do some simple yoga tai chi maneuvers. Very good she writes everything down. Then she said your blood pressure very high. She checks it. Yes. Asks me half a dozen medical questions. And then checks neck size. So she recommends I go to my doctor get whatever they're asking and get a referral for a sleep apnea test. I don't how long of a study for the sleep apnea test is. But I'm wondering if i can do both within a week. I knew this was going to happen. I saw guys as big as houses working for the mta. I'm sure they've all have been on medical hold. Also anyone going to medical hold, don't sweat it. I saw a guy weighing 185 pounds get put on medical hold. Alot of people go through this. So just relax and try to get it done as soon as you can. Alot of us are stressed and have high blood pressure. Also she said that 159 is borderline pass or fail. That's what she told me. But that depends on your BMI. If you got a certain BMI with high blood pressure that's instant medical hold and sleep apnea test.
  5. Never mind. I got the email and the money order.
  6. What's up young, how long does medical take and how much is that money order ? I got a phone call. For the medical lol. She said she was going to email the info. But I dont see anything yet. I can't believe it.
  7. I had to rewrite my application again. They can give you back the old one to copy. They had my old application and I copied and redated or fix something. Plus they'll go over the dates to help you catch anything wrong. But you have to make sure they're good.
  8. That depends on how many others are going that day. When I went yesterday there wasnt even 200 people. The line went from the lobby up to bbqs door. Processing was fast. Drug testing took longer than then paper work.
  9. 2 weeks to a month approx.
  10. I went in for bus operator yesterday. There was 2 groups. Train operator and bus operator. I'm also on the train operator list. This group one of them had a exam score of 6××. There was approx 25 people for train operator. There is a class at the end of April. ( not sure if allowed to post the date) not everyone will be in that class, they will be short 5 or 6 people who will be added to the following class. It was a good orientation.
  11. Was there yesterday young. Exactly as you said. This mta staff is fantastic. Very helpful. They really go through to help you in your application.
  12. I was at 180 Livingston yesterday. Saw the orientation. Looks good. The staff at 180 Livingston are excellent. Very helpful. Drug test does take a while. Make sure if you have to go that day, don't make any plans. Everyone finished their paperwork by 11am/12pm. And then you wait to be called into the drug test office and then you wait again to take the test. We waited approx 2 hrs. Out by 2pm. Was there at 7:30.
  13. Alright. Today I gotta phone call to come in to 180. To submit my cdl permit and other documents. I went in late September. I got my cdl permit a couple weeks ago. Called them and told them. And now I just got a phone call to come down. Question is do they do medical now ? Or towards the end ?
  14. Good luck man. I'm probably going to have to do the sleep test. I guess it's a sleep apnea test. Don't know nothing about it.
  15. Did they tell you to go to a doctor for a note saying you're fine to drive? Im probably going to have the same problem. But I heard that you can get a doctors note and go back that same day. But I'm not sure.
