    MaBSTOA B/O Exam # 7105

    Congrats to those who received a invite via email. I as well got a invite list number 25*. Good luck all and see yall around 6:45 - 7 am because i’m trying to be in and out on monday.
  2. The list hasn’t been made official yet to the public so it could end up being like the last MTA conductor exam which took years to become public then they ended up calling back 1000’s. So it’s really no telling how long. Then on top of that they could extend it even pass the minimal 4 years as well.
  3. If you never been to where they held the classes down in Bensonhurst brooklyn you have to understand that it’s many different positions going in for training in that very building more class rooms then teachers at some points. But take in mind that a class a month makes sense so as those classes near completion it’ll start to become a back to back kind of thing. Where one class done this month 70 go in the next another 70 right now they probably don’t even have enough TSS to train people. And i don’t know about yall but i want to be in a class where the TSS can actually help if you need the extra attention. Not feel overwhelmed or take from any other student trying to gasp a particular subject.

    Bus Operator (TA) Exam 7612

    Yeah i just look as well and that’s interesting how they’re already putting out another exam for both mabstoa and nyct. When they haven’t even started calling from either one. mabstoa i have a list number in 2** so i would know if they reach out for that. What is MTA up to I wonder!
  5. Personally speaking “disclose” everything. Full up the package with everything put everything on the table that way they can’t say you didn’t tell them when they start digging and trust and believe they will dig. As for dates only month and year is what matters. As for locations only general location matters like Brooklyn, NY or Queens, NY you don’t have to put the exact spot or date.
  6. Yea the young lady told me the same when i was down at livingston but i told her to wait 6 to 8 months with up and down pay working different shifts without a clear cut guarantee is hard to stomach. Lord knows i wanna work for MTA but to take a pay cut that large can put a lot of stress on someone when it comes to taking care of one’s self. Now if they told me i would know my hours from jump and work those until like say a new bid come around then cool i could get another side job and figure it out from there. But the lady told me I would be on the extra list so day to day or week to week i could be working a completely different shift. OUCH!
  7. Reason why i declined was because i learned that the training is full time but the position is part time so that means you would have to leave your current job to do the training then would become a part timer. It’ll hurt me financially to go backwards like that. Plus your going to be on the extra list for a while so finding another job along with this would be challenging.
  8. Your best bet is to always show up early. The earlier you get in the earlier you get out. Most times there’s a line even when you show up at 6:30 for a 7:30 time. But good thing the weather is breaking cause i’ve been out there at times on a line in the dead cold. THE THINGS YOU DO FOR MTA!
  9. That’s a good question i wish i could answer for you but some people just don’t think these thing’s thru clearly. Until it’s to late and they’re stuck!
  10. This is legit pure comedy right now i’ve never seen a MTA exam move so quick. List isn’t even officially establish yet and they calling in damn near a 1000 people. Thank god i took this exam and got a relatively decent score. Seems that the end of this year which is perfect these summer months is a headache. But that fall going into winter PERFECT!
  11. It’s not funny but it’s funny. That most likely the main reason why peoole missing out.
  12. One thing i learned is whenever you get a new job you always let them know of your plans you had prior to being offered the position most cases they’ll work with you. So if anything i say go thru with the process let them know of your trip which was planned before you got the job. They most likely just schedule for the class after you get back.
  13. I believe they’ll reach that. As long as they continue to have classes year around your set by year four!
  14. They get so many calls you wouldn’t believe it. My friend’s wife use to work there and she told me during these times they get upwards to thousand calls a day so i can believe that person just instinctively answer the question without even double checking what exam number you ask about.
  15. Reason i say that if you notice list numbers are high even for people with very low scores so that kind gives you a idea of how the list will unfold. They may even make it to the 70’s.
