    MTA Bus F/T B/O Exam # 7300

    Starr, Good luck to you and your co-worker at #4 who is going in tomorrow. I am number #88 so I can only imagine that down at 180 Livingston Street, it will be packed. I read somewhere else that this could actually take all day long. On top of that, I actually live in SE Massachusetts so I am still undecided about leaving my house at 2:00A in order to try and get there by 7:30A,but then again, where I have already had my CDL for quite some time now and have experience with coach bus driving and line runs, etc, etc, I have always wanted to move to NYC, and work for the MTA. I believe that you are correct though that they probably have just started to hire off of #7300 this month. Beyond the pay itself, which, after the 4 years of service when they bump you up to the $29.9550, that actually pays more than some federal service jobs top out at (i.e., Post Office), I am unfamiliar with any of the other benefits offered by the MTA Bus Company. If that is true about this #7300 exam mainly hiring for the depots in Yonkers, Eastchester and the Bronx, well that suits me just dandy! Actually though, to be quite honest, I would have a preference for the Yonkers depot myself. But beggars cannot be choosers, but it would be nice. I believe that is where a lot of the x-press routes are out of IIRC.

    Congrats Mr. New Flyer Sir. I am the day before you on the 14th at 7:30A. Best of luck in the employment process!

    I have received my letter in the mail today to come in for pre-employment processing for Bus Operator from list #7300 on June 14 at 7:30A. So, yes to answer your question, they have started the hiring process for people who have passed the BOSS-exam from this list. Good luck!

    Not 8000. 88. As in my list number was/is eighty eight. Pretty low random number that I got, yes.

    Well, I finally also got my letter in the mail and I passed the BOSS-exam from 10/23/2017 ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š.. my list number is very low actually being 88.. It says that as positions become available, then based upon your random list number, you will then be called in for pre-employment processing further. If anyone can speak to with my list number being as low as it is, how long it might be, feel free to enlighten me. I am just so relieved to finally find out that I did indeed pass the BOSS.
  7. Man, this IS exciting lol...but I would like to take the time to point something out that may matter, or it may not matter as far as our exam scores are concerned. Back in 2009, when the other exam was given, (#8098 I believe), some 11,000 people were listed as having passing scores if I recall the article correctly. Someone may have the link to it on here, or you can just Google search it. So, just for fun, what I elected to do is take my number and score and compare it with the score of the person named on 8098's list. As it turns out, they scored 4 points give or take higher than I did. So, while it may not make too much of a difference with wait time to get called, I feel that my odds of actually getting called have gone up ten fold. It was just something interesting to compare or contrast with - the last exam. They exhausted that list also if I am correct. So, one could argue in a strange sense that I got a 90 lol ๐Ÿ˜‚..
  8. Well, I got my letter in the mail today from MTA/NYCT. My anticipated list number is, what I would consider, high. I say anticipated because the letter specifically states that the list will be established in July. My number is between #3580-#3590. Is this a bad number? ๐Ÿคจ Thanks..
  9. And the list is supposed to drop out officially sometime in July?
  10. Wow...this is insane that people are being called in this early already even though the list has not even been officially established nor released yet. So, with my score of 87, I think that I may have a shot but I may have to wait 3 years...
  11. Should I get my hopes up? I took the test and got a 86.6666667, I got 8 wrong but this must be record time that potential (provisional or not) candidates are being called in already with no official list having even been established as of yet. Crazy really is the word

    Is there an e-mail or number to call to inquire as to whether or not one passed? I would like to think, based on what was stated above, that I passed but until I actually see it, or read it, or hear it...๐Ÿ˜„. It's been a long time since 10/23/2017 ๐Ÿคจ..

    Raj, you still have not heard either? Man, what is taking so long for us to find out. It was either pass/fail. I took mine on 10/23/17, and not a peep as to whether or not I passed. Odd.

    Wow. Lucky you. I guess then we wait and see what happens next then. Hopefully, I passed but if I recall correctly the proctor that was in my classroom said that we would get called as openings arise, so...
