  1. @TM5 my first time hearing this also. I have no clue why that site refers to it as that however we officially don't refer to the A division as the northern division. We do have two 'districts' within the A div East side GC and West side but that's mainly for job picking purposes. The B div does have a "North" district though. Drifting back to topic, just as I was thinking about drifting over to the B div to work the & lines they want to put that junk back on those lines . Grrr
  2. From our “operational” standpoint it really isn’t much different. A train is a train and an MDC is an MDC at the end of the day.The reporting locations and the fact that I might have to give up my tour/rdo’s is swaying my decision tho... Every School car TSS I spoke with told me the 1 & 6 will make you a real conductor. Them lines almost made me quit lol real talk. Not tryna get too off topic here. I think it may be safe to say that the next few classes that get hired will get forced into the B div though so keep that in mind to you hopefuls who are close to being called.
  3. This is the second notice they’re putting out too. They’re probably going to start drafting ppl from the bottom of the xx list if they don’t get enough volunteers.
  4. I've been AM's with Sun/Sat for a year and some change now and I get decent jobs for the most part, don't want to risk going over there and having my tour/rdo's changed. I called earlier and was told I keep my "seniority" but being XX we're subject to have our tour/rdo's changed on a weekly basis. I've heard that they've been ABD'ing intervals over there due to the lack of personnel. It's crazy
  5. It’s like being in a dungeon. It’s a dark Small cramped room with no cell service, and the AM dispatcher is a piece of work... Sidenote: B division is looking for XX conductors from the A to transfer over. I’m really strongly considering it, but the A div crew office has been treating me amazing.
  6. If he has to have his name put back on the list it sounds like they did more than "kick" him off the road, sounds like he got terminated.
  7. I’m not disputing what you’re saying, however what the other poster is saying may very well be true that person is probably new and we’re human at the end of the day we make mistakes from time to time. When I was brand new a lot of my instructors tried to sway me from relying on strip maps. When you’re being bounced from line to line daily while still trying to learn the job you can slip up from time to time. It happens. I hope that poster has the privilege of making a mistake on their job without the accusations of being drunk.
  8. Usually they’ll discharge the train and then we’ll pick up an RCI (road car inspector) somewhere along the route to see if he/she can correct the issue. If they can they’ll usually put the train back in service again.
  9. The same crew office that assigned me to take a track safety course from 3-11PM, then gave me a 4am road job the next day? Shid lol.
  10. They're running a supplement schedule this weekend.
  11. You can apply for it. By the time they call establish the list and call you, you’ll be off probation anyway. Sorry about that, I thought you were a C/R.
  12. No there's no extra points or preference since technically he'll be hired off of the O/C list, although they'll treat him like a promotional. They have promotional and open competitive exams for Train Operator, which are usually given around the same time. Promotionals are for current employees such as Conductors, Bus Operators, etc... When a promotional and open exam for a title like Conductor or Train Operator is given the promotional exam must be used first though before the O/C. @Riku @Schecter @acabral136 Just incase you guys may be interested, the filing for ATD begins on October 4th.
  13. That’s a bit of an apples to oranges comparison IMO. Riders coming from Lefferts would have to travel through two boroughs just to get to Manhattan, and the track geometry on the latter’s line supports the service whereas the switches would need to be configured to give Livonia express service in Brooklyn. would need to be reconfigured. There are six “express” intervals that run on the Livonia line every weekday though during the AM rush.
  14. Sorry I haven't spoken to this individual since August of last year, don't even think I have his phone number. You can try to contact the HR at Livingston or try DCAS I'm sure they'll be more insightful than me. And I'm sorry that you had to go through that. I'm getting my info from another one of my classmates who ran into him I should've been more specific in my post. He failed both the initial test along with the retake and essentially was let go. Had to turn all of his stuff in. Now he's back into a later class
