    T/O #7604 Hiring Process

    YES! exactly. Opioids is a no no! Don't risk it dude. Ibuprofen/ Tynenol does the job - so this might be a good idea for the time being if you're really in pain. And believe me the pain WILL go away. I'm pretty sure if it's prescribed, they will let you pass with the Doctor's Note, but the question is: Do you really want to risk it? Remember it's much easier for them to REJECT a candidate, so they can move onto the next candidate at lightning speed. This is the WINNOWING phase and they will use all types of reasons written in the rulebook to check people off the List. Good luck to everyone! Let's keep our hopes high!

    Oh a question. If there are Gaps (both small and big gaps) in your job history....... do they NOT LIKE that? Will you get disqualified for lack of work for a few months to a few years?

    Hi guys and gals - sorry but these are curious questions not related to the EXAM. But i was thinking how it could be fun and informative to ask here, because most people here are aspiring T/Os like me. Maybe we can share stories that we hear around, with each other? And also hopefully take our minds off from the Exam while we wait for the list! 1) Are you guys worried that T/Os get lung problems working underground for decades? I wonder why T/Os don't wear masks? 2) What have you heard of the culture of the MTA / TOs? Professional setting with the occasional jacka** or is it like highschool with all the alpha-ism and bullying? 3) is the failure/turnover rate 50% or more in school car? It seems like that from what i've read in the forums. Does this stress you out or does it motivate and excite you more?

    Wow guys I'm pretty bummed out. It's GREAT to hear some of you getting letters in the mail. But I haven't gotten any. I got a 93/94 as I remembered. I suppose they don't go down the list in order of Scores??

    wow this thread is quiet now. still no word from MTA! scored a 93-94 if i remembered correctly. I assume they start with MTA employees, then go down the list from 100. I would think they would have gone to the 90s by now! I hope they CALL us, would be bad if they just email us and imagine that thing went to Spam mail and we deleted it.

    The Train Map questions were a piece of cake. The Questions regarding putting the details in order or getting the Time's right were the scariest cuz 12:21 looks like 12:12 if you aren't careful!! Now it got me thinking! I may have gotten 1-2 of those questions wrong from carelessness.

    Just took the exam today and felt great! Not hard at all, you just have to be extra CAREFUL and read the questions slowly, and just cross out the answers you KNOW that are wrong, and you'll be fine. The hardest part now is waiting for the results and when they actually, if they even are, gonna call us back!!
