    Do more people go for A division or B division? I know B is harder and more equipment to learn. I personally always wanted B division.

    Hello again everyone. So for the T/Os who are starting school car on November 26th, remember we have to order our boots. I tried a few times and it says invalid account information MTA. Maybe it's still too early and I am not in the system yet. Has anyone been able to get in and order their boots? The paperwork says we need to have our boots by T/O induction on November 27th. Also, I notice it says no backpacks or wheel bags allowed in class. All I have is a backpack right now. Is there a recommended bag that meets the MTA guidelines? Do they provide the bag, or is this out of our pockets? If there is anyone in here that has been in school car, I appreciate any information you can give us.

    So I have a home blood pressure monitor and I'm getting around 145/90 which is slightly high and considered hypertension. When the MTA doctor takes my pressure, are they going to consider that a medical issue if it's that high? I know my BMI is under 35, but very close. Right now with light clothes on, I am 220lbs, and my height with no shoes is about 5'7". That brings my BMI to 34.5. Do they weight you with all your clothes on? Do they make you take your shoes off when they measure your height? Even the smallest thing can have an effect on that BMI number. I'm just trying to get an idea of how they are testing. I'm right on the edge with everything. And to boot, my neck is exactly 18 inches. I always had a fat neck. Its a mission to find dress shirts that aren't too tight. Went through that all my life. I heard they make you test for sleep apnea if your neck is 18 inches or larger. Just curious, is it a home test, or do they make you sleep in the hospital? If anyone has more detailed information on the actual medical procedures, that would be awesome. I wish everyone good luck on their PE and Medical coming up. Thank you all for all the information and positive words.

    Thank you for this info. About the blood pressure. What does the MTA consider high? What is their threshold before they put you on medical hold? I appreciate the info.

    Thank you for that info brother. That's exactly what I was trying to see. I did my pre-employment and drug test on Monday the 5th, and haven't received any email as of right now. It may come possibly any time now. Good luck again !!!

    Hey congratulations man!! How long did it take them to contact you from the point you took the drug test? And what pre-employment date were you at? Just trying to get a time frame on it. I appreciate it. And once again congrats and wish you the best in your new journey as a Train Operator!

    It consisted of a lot of waiting. Lol. I got there at around 7AM. We had to wait on line to get a ticket to see someone at the main counter. Once at the main counter you give them your pre-employment letter that they sent you and they give you a brown envelope with paperwork you have to fill out at home, and a drug test release form to fill out right there. I gentleman came out with a speaker and microphone and helped us to fill out our paperwork and to make sure we were doing it correctly. Then Ms. Vargas took 12 of us into a conference room and we had an hour or longer info-session in which she explained things about school car and the job and we were able to ask questions and talk to each other. It was very informative. Make sure you have all your stuff like HS diploma, passport, drivers license, and your application that you received. Make sure you do not have any parking tickets, or DMV moving violations, or any DMV court dates for tickets you are fighting, they will make you go to DMV and pay them in person. You cannot pay online. I was done with all my paperwork before 12 noon. I basically waited till after 6PM to get my urine test. The problem was the lab was backed up severely. MTA employees who are pulled in for randoms have first priority over us pre-employees and there were a lot of MTA employees there for randoms that day. There was no medical at my pre-employment. After the drug test we were allowed to go home. It was just about a 12 hour day for me. Be prepared to wait. Make sure you bring your phone charger or better yet a USB battery pack so you dont have to rely on an electrical outlet. Good luck to everyone.

    Thank you. Im hearing different things. Ms. Vargas in the info-session told us that we should possibly hear something in 1 to 3 days by email and that this would be for a possible November 26th class, and that there are definitely another 2 classes in the works but they haven’t announced dates.
