    The Schoolcar Experience

    That was a super dangerous move by the Superintendent. He should have introduced himself, showed ID, and wore his vest prior to entering your cab. Non-uniformed employees MUST wear their vest on the road while on duty performing work.

    Chapter 1 all 38 rules. Particularly rule 30. All of Chapter 2. This is your life from now on. Read this chapter every day. Focus on 2.40m and 2.40n (this is part of your signals test) Chapter 3. This is your signals test. Know your fouling point, stop sign, shop door clearance. Chapter 9 Pay close attention to 9.02b.

    If you want to get a head start, grab a subway map and start learning the terminals. Read the weekday and weekend schedule planned work diversions off the website or the Customer Information Board. Soon you can put a few of the puzzle pieces together.

    Station Agent 6600 Hiring Process

    That is your choice to make, however being on two lists is better than being on one. I can only percieve the Station Agent requirements becoming more demanding as technology and the riding public evolve.

    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    You can choose one, defer the other position until you pass probation and become a permanent employee, then reinstate your name to the list of the other position and when you get called, take a leave of absence to try it out. Make your final decision at that point.

    Memorandum of Understanding. It is the vernacular for Labor Contract.

    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    https://www.cs.ny.gov/pio/summaryofcslaw/summofcsl-permappt.cfm#failure You have 10 business days to respond to pre-employment letter. After 10 business days with no response from you, it seems like there is no obligation on the agency's behalf to process your pre-employment. But go anyways, NYCT does what it does and it's provisional now, so the rules of the list is in a gray area based on need. Don't worry about their attitudes. You have an obligation to pursue the opportunity. Negativity runs deep down here. Getting caught up in negativity doesn't end well. Train Operator by contract is a two tier pay. Yard rate and Road rate. The contract MOU as of 2005 as won by arbitration is 231 days of road service entitles the Train Operator to top pay. There is no contradictory MOU, nor past practice to refute the written policy regarding Train Operator pay.

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    I try for a slightly bigger size so i can put 1 or 2 orthotics in them. I go for the Dr. Scholls Work gel and Dr. Scholls heavy duty pain relief with the original insert simultaneously. Feels like walking on clouds.

    As long as you are qualified, TA will keep you as long as you want to keep working. There are some people who take jobs here for the extra income, second pension, health insurance for themselves or their spouse, or from what I see, to get out of the house so they can shirk the honey-do list.

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Top pay for Conductor is $31.635. As far as transfering, that is a decision based on what kind of responsibility and stress you are willing to handle. One deals with Transit's money and property, while the other deals with passenger safety. They are both important to the overall function of the system and everyone has a unique experience with either job.

    Just taking an educated guess. Correct me if I'm wrong. Open or pending cases, tickets and failure to resolve them. Inconsistent documentation such as misspelled names that are never resolved. Missing periods or inconsistent work and residential history. Failed or "refusal" to take a drug test. Invalid qualifications or credentials (foreign documents that are not translated into English), expired or suspended license. You hold or held an office or public/private position that conflicts with all the agency code of ethics. Or my favorite, though not official: you appear on the Specially Designated Nationals list. (Known terrorist) Then on to failing the medical ASSESSMENT. That being said, everyone knows that this position's NOE states that passing an OPA is part of the qualifications. Now whether or not they organize the OPS is another story.

    Whatever DCAS knows, Transit WILL KNOW. They are willing to give you an opportunity to operate a $20mil consist carrying over 2000 passengers for 8 hours. If you were a parent, would you hire a babysitter that lied on their resume?

    Read carefully the instructions on how to complete the 21 page packet. Everything is important, and omitting ANYTHING is the same as lying on the packet. The moment you went to the test site and did your three fingerprints and SSN on that test date notification paper, presume they already know everything about you.
