  1. All HR said was that we were "in the pool" for the next Phase 2 class. This really puts my life on hold. Do I plan my next vacation? Do I make plans to further my career at my current job? Do I go to my family reunion in October (in another state)? So many other things that I need time in order to plan properly.
  2. Has anyone heard anything about when the current hiring freeze will end? I passed my Phase 1 exam only to hit a brick wall when Phase 2 was cancelled.
  3. No information on Saturday classes. We'll find out on the 29th. In the past it's been Ronkonkoma or Babylon. See you Wednesday. I'm the old dude.
  4. Are you getting paid while you are not training?
  5. Had physical test pre-Phase One. Phase One to begin April 29. was told some classes may be at home due to COVID-19 concerns.
  6. Still waiting on a Phase One invitation email. I wonder if there is going to be a delay due to the pandemic.
  7. Thanks for the tip. I hope this covid-19 thing doesn't postpone the process like its postponing everything else.
  8. I never got any notification pass/fail. Only an email to come in to discuss my future in the program.
  9. Does anyone know when the next Phase One will start? Also, how much time is there between passing Phase One and starting Phase Two?
  10. As I mentioned earlier TAKE 2 COPIES of each booklet. I was out of my class before lunch. You'll have all day to get started studying.
  11. At the overview, try to grab an extra copy of both the signals and definitions. You can make your flashcards from one set and keep the other set with you in a book bag or something.
  12. You guys are making me feel like a relic. I'm 51 and this is my only shot at this. Alberto, you can reapply in a year. Don't give up. Old or not, I still have to work into my 70's due to terrible 401k options available in my past and NO pension. Where I work now or on the railroad - makes no difference - I still have to be at the top of my game.
  13. Still waiting for the other shoe to drop myself. I couldn't get a read on the interview. I felt great going in because I passed the S&D. I left doubting myself and beating myself up for not knowing more about train operations.
  14. The one above is a special schedule for Saturdays. This is the regular one until March 8: http://web.mta.info/lirr/Timetable/Branch/HillsideBolandLIRREmployee.pdf
  15. Here is a link to the Hillside schedule: http://web.mta.info/lirr/Timetable/SpecialTT/Nassau_MLX-W-GO505-HI.pdf
