    Bus Operator (TA) Exam 7612

    Five year ban ? That's like saying you Can try again but not in this life. What barbarian thought that was a bright idea ? I got a 1 year hiring ban with LIRR after I failed Signal Maintainer Trainee practical exam but was told I can apply for other LIRR positions. NYCTA needs to be more civilized and reduce this 5 year ban to 1 year. The way things are going in this city, the blue collar workers are gonna start disappearing if they can't get good jobs.

    This whole premployment process is being rushed and mistakes are being made on Transit's end, such as the text, email and phone call message stating that some of us were supposed to get our premployment letters prior to Tuesday November 10th (which is not correct since Tuesday is the 13th). I originally thought maybe they meant Tuesday the 20th since that's closer to being a typo.

    When did you get the letter ? It's really odd how they operate, my list number is in the 130's and i didnt get anything yet. Meanwhile you said your list number is in 470's and you got a letter.

    Bus Operator (TA) Exam 7612

    Hey Young, that's what I was told. I wasn't looking to start an argument. Now your theory with the certificate sequence number .. I personally have two different certificate sequence numbers for exam 7612 but I have yet to receive a single pre-employment letter.. what does that mean for me ? I was already taken into consideration once and not picked ? Also a friend of mine only received one pre-employment letter for exam 3600 but he has about four different certificate sequence numbers.

    You can decline up to two times .. third time you decline then your name will be completely removed from the list. At least that's what I've been told by a fellow Transit worker. There's a catch tho if you decline now.. they would have to finish the list entirely before it expires and if they still need to fill vacancies then they will reach out a second time around to those who declined the first time. Same goes for the third attempt. When were they asking you to report for premployment?

    Seems to be a typo, they probably meant Tuesday November 20th.

    You have more then enough knowledge to take and pass the SPA then we did. You have to understand that Transit monitors this site and if too much information is released then they can easily void the entire exam. This has happened in the past. Take this with a grain of salt There's also the 1 in 3 Law so even if you do well it doesn't mean you will be selected. Just keep hustling and taking as many exams as you can.

    They weren't asking if you can read,write and speak in English. If you took and passed the multiple choice then you obviously can read and write English. They were asking for direct misuse of work ethics. They send you to school/training regardless so how can you possibly know all the Safety rules & regulations beforehand?

    I think I speak on behalf of many hard working men and women who are just trying to get into MTA/NYCTA to provide a better future for themselves and their families. The SPA should be part of the multiple choice exam process. It's not fair to present it in its current form because many folks in the private sector don't get the opportunity to get trained on safe work methods.

    Some questions were logical/commonsense but some where a bit more technical. It also seemed like they want politically correct answers.

    What's also bothering me is that there are other positions that are more dangerous such as Car Inspector, Bus Maintainer, Light Maintainer etc. That don't require SPA exams. So why are they giving it on a Helper position?
