  1. Took 5 years to call me on the last test with a list number of 26xx. Real no way of knowing how long, I don’t even know if the Subway Action Plan is still in effect, they could go back to the total number of track employees before it was signed. The SAP forced the MTA to hire more track employees and bump there total number up, they may not want to keep this new total up.
  2. You don’t need a license I got on with just my learners permit, just make sure you have a non expired license/permit/id. There is positions you’ll be locked out of those without a cdl. And as stated no outstanding tickets.
  3. Same thing just want to know where you been past 10 years, of it was all in school that’s fine. There really is no prerequisites for this title. I don’t think it will be a problem, it may only cause you to be locked out of truck driver position. Btw not to get your hopes up but it took longer than two years to reach the 2000s for the last test. also the lowest score to be hired from that test was 92.
  4. Even though no license is needed they will pause your hiring process if you have unpaid tickets on your license. I’ve seen people when I was hiring told to take care of it and come back, sometime they were able to run down the block pay em off and come back an hour later to continue, but just have em taken care of first. they want to know your employment for the last 10 years, you have to submit a resume when they first send you a hiring packet than bring one in the day of your hiring to see if they match, I had gaps in mine due to unemployment and off the books jobs and it didn’t matter. they do background checks and you must bring in paperwork for your depositions/arrests. There are people with arrest records here, as long as your honest and don’t try to hide your arrests/record or lie to them you’re pretty much okay to go.
  5. No set dates for picks in track, other departments have mandatory picks. Our foreman are mandated to pick once a year via contract. Track doesnt have any specifics and picks come at random it seems, with that said there is gossip now of us picking in March, foreman have already picked this year. general pick is a multiple day event where everyone picks a title via seniority order. Just about all jobs/reporting locations/sub departments/etc... are opening for picking. You can pick day spots, night spots, cleaning, maintenance, construction spots, special titles for a little extra money etc... Really no estimate with this time called stuff. Depends on a lot, They usually hired around 20 at time from what i was told but when I got hired they bumped it up to 50 at a time every 3 weeks but no telling what level of influx they will keep.
  6. Congrats on everyone that passed, I'm 2 years on now from the 3600 test. I was in the mid 2000s on that list. There has been some movement since i've been hired. a lot of retirees, promotions to foreman on going and a now promotion to third rail test was just given. The going gossip is about a 300 drop to seniority come next pick for us, how quickly the MTA looks to update our seniority list and let us pick is unknown. How quickly they attempt to fill in those now 300 or so vacancies is unknown as well. We're suppose to get our contract raises and retro in March&April, don't think we'll have a pick until after those are here. No trackworkers were making 150/200 those were mostly LIRR people making bank. I can try to answer any questions you might have if it helps.
  7. If you think you were skipped you have to call them. I never got my second letter to come down for a drug test it just never showed up. I saw on here someone after me got called in and I called up. They let me come down two days later with my original drug test paper and I got hired from that.
  8. No license is required but record matters. They check and make you pay all outstanding tickets and/or wait for points to come off which in some cases could postpone your employment by a year or two.
  9. I’ve never had a licensce and was hired so that is true, it’s kind strange how they are about the points. They made one guy in my class wait about two years for points to disappear before he was able to get on. You need a CDL for the drive positions though so that might by why.
  10. Bi-weekly on thursdays. Next pay is the 17th so you guys will get your first pay on the 31th. Regular clothing is fine
  11. Pick is suppose to start June 4th but we’ll see when the time comes
  12. List shows only about 2,150 track workers, I thought they had to have a little more then that. That may class would had 50 more but think they are still short by at least 2 more classes...
  13. Basic stuff like what tool is for what, what direction of traffic to walk, you should have taken a test before you left for OJT that is similar. Flagging test is the one you need to worry about. There was a small hiring freeze back in sept or so when Livingston sent the list back to DCAS, it only lasted little more then a month though.
  14. May be the case as though the “grape vine” the pick is end of June, don’t think they’ll have a pick in the middle of hiring people.
  15. Your bsc number should have been given to you the first day, did they make you write a 7 digit number down like 40 times on all your paperwork? If not you should have been given a white paper the day you swore in that has your name the day you start you list number and all that. Bsc number is the employee Id number next to your pass number.
