  1. So after calling all day I finally got through to one of Robinson's managers Ms.Riviera who was as sweet as cherry pie. She explained they're up to list number 2121. Add to that reinstated numbers and I basically may wait a while with list 28xx. Still didn't understand though why the first letter was sent then at all. They really should do a spring cleaning there and get rid of all the Robinson types who add to stress rather than relieve it and I'm sure it'll get better. Wish i had a general eta. Thanks for the support ahwooo. Just wondering what was your hiring experience like? Taken exam, score, wait period, hiring process? I took my track exam 7 years ago with 96 score.
  2. I hear you but it's not an excuse to be unprofessional and unhelpful. Not like I was hounding her or being impolite. Giving information is her job. If she doesn't like it she can quit. I deal with the same level of stress as her day in and day out. But I keep my professionalism even when dealing with stressful people or situations. I don't get rude just cause I'm stressed. Especially when there is legitimacy in my or someone's elses stress. But thank you for the word of support. Cheers
  3. I just called Robinson to find out what the deal was since my Sept. 28th visit ended up with me being told to wait for another letter in a month or so. It's been over 2 months. I called Robinson. She's as nasty as can be. After explaining myself she asks my list number which is 28xx. She says they're up to 21xx. I tried to ask what I'm supposed to do and why was a letter sent to me if I'm 700 numbers ahead and she says "You have a nice day" and hangs up. How can someone this rude work in hr I don't get it. Anyway I've been calling her back and the 29/30/31/32 numbers rotationally pointlessly with no answer. Should I go down there and see what they tell me in person or is that a waste of time? I'm honestly beginning to have second doubts about pursuing this. If this is how they treat you hiring wise, I can imagine how you're treated when employed. Especially with such a hazardous job. I have a good job, maybe not as stable with not as many benefits But no have my pros that mta can't give me. Pretty disappointed as of now.
  4. Thanks for the link to the open data site. This is really great. I found my name and relevant info on it. I'm just not understanding what these numbers mean. The certification numbers and what not. If you can elaborate on their meaning I would really appreciate it. Thank you
  5. No, my first letter I got about 2 weeks ago that came to my parents address where I used to live. However that first letter stated "rescheduled" interview date. As +young+ explained few pages back in the forum it's due to miscommunication between DCAS and MTA regarding the hiring list numbers and what not. Bureaucracy. So I'm now waiting for the second letter. Hope that helps.
  6. Hey everybody! Sorry I haven't posted since Friday it's been a crazy weekend. But yea I went in on Friday for the track worker interview and was told by a very nice guy named Kevin that they stopped hiring this month for track workers. And that I don't need to get myself back on the list in DCAS, I just need to wait for another letter that's supposed to come through sometime between October 1st and Halloween. So will be waiting on that and giving you an update. Thanks and cheers!
  7. So are we getting turned away this Friday as I'm understanding or not? I went to DCAS and got my address updated. They also told me about 2 different certification numbers that they see so I might get turned away and sent back to DCAS to put myself back on the list as they explained it. Wondering what's gonna happen.
  8. Thanks for this info. Me Robinson usually picks up around 9 30 9 45 am. The number is 347-643-8198. I got through this morning and she basically informed me that if I show up this Friday like my letter said I will be turned away because of the whole list is in the wrong department thing. Read a few pages back you'll understand. I'll probably will still come just to show up so they don't forget about me.
  9. Ok thanks. Hope to have some updates tomorrow.
  10. Did they inform you they restored your name? How long after that they called you in do you remember? I'm looking at the MTA site and there is a track worker 8600 10/6-10/24. I'm guessing the promotion exams are for already MTA employees. I wonder the promotion TO track worker is promoted from what? Just curious.
  11. Yea thats a given ofcourse I will. I just gotta find out how to restore it whom to call to do so. That's if I don't make it this Friday.
  12. Why do you think so just out of curiosity. The 3600 was pretty easy high school level logic stuff. I'm guessing the notice will be up on the MTA website so to keep a lookout for that.
  13. Thanks for the info. I'm gonna try and get more info tom. Let's not fight this is all such a conundrum.
  14. The application period for the 8600 exam? I gotta check and see if they say when they are giving that exam. It's ok this system seems very unsystematic. If it wasn't for the benefits stability and money nobody would probably go here.
  15. Right. That makes sense. Although does that mean I'll wait another 7 years to get an interview for the 8600 test? Given I pass it with flying colors.
