  1. You will also spend a good amount of time in Queens. But for sure, less uptown & Bronx reports than the A.
  2. Definitely agree. I don’t encourage people trying to hide a mistake - that would just make the discipline worse if you’re caught in the coverup. Like Jchambers said; all it takes is the wrong person riding on your train and you’re caught. With all these ppl and their cameras, you’ve gotta be on your toes.
  3. Schoolcar for B div is longer than A div by approximately 2 months. Idk about turnover - but people can make more mistakes in the B division due to the sheer amount of points of no return. However, in that same vein, you can get away with more in the B division because it doesn’t have ATS like the A div which allows RCC to track you. Due to the B division being exponentially larger than the A div, I assume that it’s easier to pick a regular job. I don’t understand what you mean by flexibility.
  4. I agree that you have to be VERY lacking to fail the exam - BUT it has happened. Someone in my induction class failed, don’t ask me how. To what @adam223 said about seeing some dumb people pass and complete schoolcar - I see that and ask myself the same thing every single day.
  5. I know that from experience yeah. Sucks but what can you do.
  6. The answer to all of your questions depends on your TSS. Some TSS like the rulebook/signal guide definitions verbatim, while others like to edit out the “fluff”. As you well know - the definitions are written in lawyernese. From my experience - we hit up signals almost everyday. If we finished something and we have free class time - my TSS would start hitting us with verbal signal quizzes (no books allowed). During road days - 1 TSS would be in the cab with whoever is operating, and the other would be w/ the rest of the class reviewing whatever it is they feel necessary. Idk about the phone recording - but I’m gonna say that the chances of them allowing it are slim to none.
  7. Means Work As Assigned. Means they can have you do whatever is needed as long as it doesn’t exceed the WAA timeframe. However - a lot of the time - it just means you chill for a bit.
  8. You’ll get the rulebook as soon as you swear in, then maybe the 2 or 3rd day at the school - you’ll get all your school car books.
  9. It’s always good to have a base understanding of the signals. Just don’t delve too deep into it because the signal guide/rulebooks might not have it down how the TSS wants you to remember them. Also - schoolcar is a lot, but it’s certainly not that hard as long as you study and put the effort in.
  10. Don’t overthink it too much. The shade of gray doesn’t matter - as long as it passes as gray. Yes - wear your boots at all times on the clock - even if you’re just sitting in the school. Later on, when you go back to the school, they will expect you to bring everything (rules & tools), during schoolcar it’s best practice to bring all your books when you visit the school.
  11. Man I know that’s right lol. My partner on Friday WAA’d for 4 straight hours while I was doing a double transfer between JYD and CIY. Ended up 2+1 cause of that move.
  12. You about to be out on the road, don’t be too nervous if you end up with one of us rookies as your partner. Good luck!
  13. Be careful picking the division based on 1 line lol. Though, you might not even have a chance to pick. Someone in the July class was talking to me about how they put him in the A div while he lived in CI.
  14. Go get the gray shirts and dark blue pants. Why even risk getting called out for something so simple?
  15. Good luck to all the ppl starting Monday. My induction class will be @ the school on Tuesday for the final exam. Good chance if you want information about schoolcar from people who are about to finish.
