    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    The same exact thing happened to me. I was also considered for the Jan 28 class and was put on medical hold. I’m still on medical hold though. Did you get back on the list? What did you have to do exactly?

    First, they had me go to my personal doctor and have him write a letter. Then the MTA doctor decided that wasn’t good enough so she sent me to their outside doctor. I didn’t have a choice who it was at that point. The MTA doctor just circled the name of another doctor from a pre-printed list she had and asked the medical intake people in the waiting area make an appointment for me. I don’t know if it’s standard procedure or not. But I get the very distinct impression the MTA doctor really doesn’t want me to get through the medical portion.

    The “outside doctor” they sent me to hadn’t returned one of the forms he needed to. He sent most of them but there was one missing. So now I have to call 180 Livingston in 7-10 days again to see if he sent it in. I suppose there’s no rush since there are no further classes planned.

    I just returned from 180 Livingston. The January 28th class is full. There haven't been any more classes planned at this time. I was put on medical hold for the third time. Apparently, the MTA would rather hire people with criminal backgrounds than someone with a medical condition that is easily and completely treatable with medication. I'm starting to think this just isn't the employer for me.

    Is the January 28th class full?

    Did they tell you if the Jan 28th class is full?

    It’s not sleep apnea either (I’m not overweight). But from what I’ve gathered, sleep apnea is a huge red flag for them.

    Thanks man, I appreciate it. Luckily, I've had the strength and patience to put up with people like her my whole life. I hope it works out for you too.

    No, my medical hold isn’t for high blood pressure/cholesterol. I don’t want to say what it is because it’s starting to feel like it could be a negating factor in getting hired. I don’t want people in the same situation as me to try to hide it if it turns out to be something that will keep you from being considered. . However, it could also be the particular doctor I got at 180 Livingston. She seems to have an ignorance and prejudice when it comes to my particular problem (she also seems barely competent in my opinion). But it’s like she was also just looking for some reason to put me on medical hold too, so maybe it was a personal thing—she didn’t like me from the moment I walked in the room for some reason. If it turns out I’m not fit for duty because of this particular medical problem, I’ll let you know.

    I’m list #81x. I was called for medical on December 18th. I was put on medical hold that day. I got the letter from my doctor and went back to 180 Livingston yesterday. I asked about the hiring freeze and I was told it doesn’t affect train operators. They then put me on medical hold again (ugh). So I don’t know if I can resolve the issue fast enough to get in the Jan 28th class. I asked about that too and they haven’t yet planned any classes past Jan 28th.

    List #81X. Yes they told me what the problem was. I just have to get a letter from my doctor. I don’t want to say what it is specifically. I won’t get to see him until Thursday to get the letter (he doesn’t have any openings sooner than that). And I can’t go back to 180 Livingston on Friday because of other obligations. So I’m hoping I can go on Monday. But Monday is Christmas Eve. Does anyone know if they’re open on Monday?

    I was there today for medical. My email said I was being considered for the Jan 28th class. However, I was put on medical hold when I was there today and saw the doctor. Depending on how quickly I can get this resolved, I guess I can kiss the Jan 28th class goodbye.

    I just received the email for my medical/final processing appointment, Tuesday, December 18th. List #: 81x. The email stated that I am being considered for the January 28th class. Yay!
