  1. Please ignore my question about having a NYS license. As someone pointed out you only need les a drivers license that is valid in NYS.
  2. Ah yes thanks for clarifying! I thought the NOE stated NYS license. My mistake.
  3. Did you have a NYS drivers license when you applied to take the exam as it was one of the requirements to qualify for T/O? Here is the info if you need to exchange your license. https://dmv.ny.gov/driver-license/exchange-out-state-driver-license
  4. Did the email for the medical state a specific time to go in? TIA My damn phone acted up as I was moving the email to save and instead trashed it. I know I go in on Friday for medical but don’t recall if there was a time. I will most likely call tomorrow to ask if they can resend the email.
  5. I got the email stating to go in for my medical 5/25 and being considered for the 5/29 orientation! But wondering why $87 for fingerprinting when other agencies are $75? That’s weird.

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Like others have advised try calling them. My list number is in the 3000’s and I already went in for my OPA.
  7. Hard to say at this point since DCAS hasn’t posted scores online yet. 70 is passing score so you can guesstimate. Just for comparison there were over 31000 people that passed the C/R exam.
  8. Could be the requirements and or training/responsibilities associated with being a T/O.
  9. I can only assume more people took the C/R exam since T/O requires a drivers license. Better than sanitation... I scored mid 90’s and list number is in the 15000’s lol
  10. Highly doubt she can appeal that disqualification. The requirements were clearly stated on the NOE. NYS drivers license and one year full time work experience.
  11. I just got my letter in the mail as well and will have to wait. I guess I didn’t make it for the 5/29 orientation for the temp position.

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    I think just the opposite. My list number is higher for T/O and they are currently short handed so the demand will be greater. I’m not saying conductor training is easy but I think my chances of getting in are better with conductor than T/O. I do well with tests but my memory isn’t what it used to be now that I’m in my 40’s.

    It was just my experience for LIRR locomotive engineer trainee that probably has me all worried for T/O. I went to their open house a few years ago and they gave you study material. We had 3 weeks to memorize the material for the exam. Signals test consists of 127 signals and definitions is 80 words that you have to remember verbatim. With T/O I believe we would have more than 3 weeks to study for the signals test. All this and that only gets you into phase 1 of the trainee program. The trainer did not sugar coat anything and told us how it is. He stated in this class of 30, half would return for the exam and probably only 3 would pass.
  14. According to the current fact sheet on NYCERS website it is still showing 25/55. Hopefully it remains the same. https://www.nycers.org/sites/main/files/file-attachments/737_0.pdf
