  1. I wouldn’t worry guys. I haven’t heard back either and mine expired in April. It’s probably just not cost-efficient for them to schedule more drug tests until they know they’re about to schedule more classes. I’m sure that’ll happen by the end of the year.
  2. No one need panic about this. There will surely be more vacancies in the 3 and a half year period that the list will be current for. I wouldn’t worry too much about this - it might take the rest of the year but they’ll start calling again. There’s no way there will be 0 vacancies for that long. People retire every year.
  3. Has anyone been able to get through to Mrs. Watson? My attempts to call the last week and half, there’s never any answer. Maybe she’s on vacation?
  4. I’ve been trying to reach Ms. Watson for the last couple of days because I’m not sure how this goes: I was in for PE on 1/24, and 4/24 will make 90 days. Regardless of whether they’re calling off the list at the current time, don’t I need to submit another sample in that time frame? It’s 2 weeks away. I’m assuming she’s on vacation or something this week because I haven’t been able to reach her.
  5. As of right now there aren’t any new classes scheduled for Station Agent. Mrs. Watson informed me that she doesn’t know when and if new ones will be scheduled because the department relays that information to her. And then HR will subsequently call in more people from the list for new drug tests past the 30 day mark and then final processing shortly after. So as of right now, there aren’t more classes scheduled but that doesn’t mean there won’t be soon enough. She was purposely vague as usual, but I suspect there might be a short pause for a month or two. I’m speculating based on my experience with MTA hiring process so they don’t take that as fact guys.
  6. I’ll call tomorrow to try and see if they’re done scheduling classes for now. If I remember right they paused for a week or so when they got into the 500s or 700s. I can’t remember.
  7. I called today and they’re still up to 1138. Hopefully it will keep moving for the next couple of months at least.
  8. I just called yesterday afternoon but forgot to post. They are up to 952 for final processing as of 3/15.
  9. hmc is right then. They may have mixed up your email. Try to call them tmrw. Did you have any large gaps in employment or anything else they’d have an issue with maybe?
  10. Did you go for Pre-employment? Or did you never get a letter?
  11. I’m assuming maybe in this particular batch of people it’s not often that they’re finding people with a 4 year gap in employment? I’m not sure if that’s what the issue would be in your case, but from what I’ve read they don’t even bother inviting you for final processing if they use the 1 in 3 rule for your application. I can’t imagine why they’d have you come again for the permanent position process if it was a problem for them during the provisional process as well. That’s ridiculous.
  12. PSA: They are up to 832 for final processing as of today!
  13. You’re right. I forgot about that. It’s a little silly that they’d even use that rule to weed out people the first few months of hiring, considering they have about 2600 more people to run through before the list is completely gone through. Edit: I read up on this. Apparently your employment history can be used against you, especially if you’ve previously been with the MTA and were fired. I’m assuming they will take other things into consideration such as how many times you were fired from previous employments, education history etc in the case that you are “considered” and ultimately “not selected”. Basically, if it’s between you and two others for that particular position to fill, only one of you will be selected. And in some cases, you can have a better list number but if your credentials or history are at all lacking compared to someone slightly below you, they may opt to move further with that candidate instead. The only way you will be removed from the list, however, is if this happens to you 3 different times. In other words, if you’re not selected when being one of three eligible for 3 consecutive positions. Even then, you can request to be restored to the list. This happens before background checks are even done, so besides your exam score I am assuming the pre-employment packet is the only thing being used in consideration here.
  14. You’re right. I forgot about that. It’s a little silly that they’d even use that rule to weed out people the first few months of hiring, considering they have about 2600 more people to run through before the list is completely gone through.
  15. That’s odd. Under what criteria would they not offer the position to someone? Or do you mean, people who they never bothered to send a pre-employment invitation to? There are no other requirements beyond passing the drug screening once you’re called in...
