    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    I'm not seasoned, just finished schoolcar. But here are some tips given to me: 1-) On time is late. Be at work at least 20 minutes before your report time. Avoid long drives (if you must drive at all). If you're in the city, stick to public transportation, this way if you're late because of delays, you are covered. If you are from out the city and commuting is hard, drive to the closest Metro North, LIRR, or subway terminal. Again, avoid being in a car too much. 2-) Communication. Constant communication between you, the dispatchers, RCC, and your partner. Always communicate (ALWAYS). You will always be covered as long as you communicate. 3-) Know your rules and bulletins. You have A LOT of free time on a lot of days, don't just sit around at the crew rooms doing nothing. Constantly read bulletins and review the rules. 4-) Operate AS PER SCHOOLCAR. You will have 100 people telling you 100 different ways to do things (even road TSS). Ignore them all. Operate as per schoolcar, and make sure to always carry around bulletins that pertain to your job duties to cover your ass if someone tries to give you any issues. 5-) Get your 7-8 hours of sleep daily. 6-) Know any General Orders and supplements that pertain to your line/tour (I personally do this at home). If I can think of anything else I will come back and post it. Any questions you might have, feel free to ask.

    For new/future C/Rs: if you have this issue, be sure to let schoolcar know once you get back to school after posting. Let them know the line, and they will make sure you post again with another trainer. Don't rat anybody out though, just say you don't feel like you learned the line well enough. They will be sure to reassign you again.

    I don't think that's correct. I think B/O makes a little more than C/R. About $2.xx more per hour at max pay. Someone correct me if I'm wrong please. I'm on my phone and can't check.

    B/O 4600 Hiring Process

    Ok so you did already get called for preemployment, you're waiting for your medical, correct? Medical I am pretty sure it's through e-mail, and it could take up to 90 days.

    Call 347-643-8229, asked to be transferred to Bus Operator 4600, and let them know you never received your preemployment. Happened to me and that's what I did, received a new preemployment appointment.
