  1. Don't forget, you're always going to do overtime. Most runs are 9 hours, so that's an extra 5 hours OT every week, time and a half, $35 (plus Delay Time) - you'll find out what that is later on. Plus, OT is always available for extra money if you like to work. It took me about 6 months to feel comfortable driving a bus. I've been doing it 2.5 years now. So now it's like driving my car. I had an interview for the Locomotive Engineer job the other day, wish me luck! Good Luck in training all!
  2. If B/O is the only position you want, Academy, Peter Pan & Greyhound is hiring as well. They'll train you for your CDL as well. Something to do while you wait for NYC, and the experience of driving a bus before you get in with NYC would be a BIG plus. You'll also have a CDL which would put you ahead of the ppl who don't have one. Something to think about ..
  3. NJ Transit hired me within two months of mailing out my application to my first day of class as a B/O. I'm here over two years now, with 40 ppl under me in seniority. There's just too many ppl in NYC taking these civil service exams. Takes forever. However, Correction Officer will call you in a few months. Something to think about. I know a guy who went from being a C/O to a Fire Fighter. Once you have your foot in the door, you can slip into the open cracks. I was invited to take the Locomotive Engineer test with NJ Transit. But the schooling is almost two years for this position. Something to think about..
  4. Hey Young, I see that MTA Bus has a part time position available at the moment. What does part time consist of? Less hours I'm assuming. Do part timers get pension & benefits?
  5. I hope you guys pass all 3 DMV tests on such short notice. It's not that easy..
  6. Congratulations all! Good Luck!
  7. Top pay for bus operators is now $34.78 an hour? That's very good.
  8. Top pay, after 5 years. But that also means $45 in OT.
  9. I think they all make $29.99 an hour. But NYCT has the best pension.
  10. In NJ, we have Line Relief (or Relief Runs). We cover for the days off that operators have. All Relief Runs have Thur / Fri off.
  11. Respect to Young for giving some great information..
  12. It takes 5 years to top pay in NJ.
