  1. There is something seriously wrong with your process. If you paid for and taken the 7604 exam, they must give you an official score. And like MTAHopeful said the disqualifying factors begin from there for NOE requiements. But, EVERYTHING starts from list number obtained from your official score. If they blunder from not giving you an official score and you can prove it, you will get exceptions which will help your process.
  2. There was no May class....... The last class was April 29th before the June, July, and August classes were announced.....and yes I heard it was small, not sure the exact number, though. I believe that vacancy number is per quarter or what the amount that was requested by the higher ups....the powers that be.....
  3. You got it better than you think..... being in Manhattan means you're central and can basically go to any terminal or yard much easier than folks on the ends sides.... Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens.... From midtown Manhattan you can probably get on any train without changing to a different train as much......which will mean a lot in the early am's, late pm's, and of course midnight going to and leaving work..... This pertains to both divisions....
  4. Wow! You checked declined and sent it in and they still called you.... Trying to gauge this out. As we all know they send out more invites for PE then is availible for schoolcar to make sure they have more than enough for medical. So besides some that are failing PE, put on medical hold.... There's some that moved onto other things and declined, not deferred and still getting called..... hopefully this means the list will be moving fast.....
  5. Hey GGTrain... Let me get this right, you declined in November and they still sent you another invite for PE for 5/23? The first time, did you send in the PE letter with the bottom part signed and the "I decline appointment" checked or simply did not come in the day requested? I think it's great that part of your dream came true and very noble of you to pass your spot onto someone else. And Cheers for a wonderful retirement...
  6. First off Congratulations!!!!! You probaly got pushed to the next class because the 2/24 Induction class is smaller than usual with only 40 students..... 2 A division & 2 B Division. That's only if you didn't defer that is..... Good news is you will have one of the top list numbers and will be able to choose which divison you want..... that is, if they don't shove everyone into 1 division....
  7. Congrats...... I knew you'll be next up!..... Now! The fun really begins.....
  8. Yeah man!.......the stability of scheduling in schoolcar, I'm already coming to understand how that works and being at the mercy of the crew office!..... Man! I was hoping to able to see some classmates waiting on board or on the lines, but I know it can be difficult being how disparaging the scheduling can be and how vast the subways are...... I do know just from life itself...... It's exciting to be starting something new and it's reassuring to know you have stability and security in your occupation, but big picture.....it's a job and there will be good days and bad days............ and there's a reason why they pay us because in perfect dream, we would get money for nothing and chilling all the time!...lol.....
  9. ^^^^^^Facts^^^^^^ A lot of what Far Rock is saying is true....... TA monitors everything...... and in this day and age, they have a specific cyber unit checking on whats going on in social media.... Somebody asked earlier about the training.......and in this thread and other list threads you will notice nobody gets in depth or specific about training....... Now you know the reason why.......
  10. When you get the email for Medical......it will be for the next scheduled class. I've heard, seen, and talked to people that have been called to come in the Friday before the the class that starts on the Monday...... after that Friday......
  11. Not annoying at all.....we're here to help each other...... RTO goes by quarters and the last quarter finished in January. February starts the new quarter......before they used to make classes every month within that quarter. As of lately they've been making classes as needed, though. I reported in January that a senior TSS told me that they have a February class planned. I saw in an earlier post it said Olha confirmed Feb 25....... she will definitely know because either her or Maria Vargas will be the one to send an email to you for Medical.......
  12. Yeah Man!.... LoL....... Start Posting on Wednesday 2/6.......2 more days of class til then...... I, as you probably know already, heard some of these stories from other on the job Conductors, but nothing like feeling and seeing the real deal going through it myself. Your words of wisdom are golden too and I will definitely heed them too!.... Our CRB class is talking about this might be the last time we are all together at the same time and all..... Wondering....how often do you run into CRB/A classmate on the road? And yeah......those 1 hour lunches together will be missed!......
  13. These are 2 separate lists and you have to go to each one respectively of each other. I'm on both lists too and have been to PE's for both of them. Conductor called for medical first and I went to Schoolcar for that. If you look at my previous post above......this another way these list numbers move so fast. Because I took Conductor, my spot on the T/O list will go to somebody else. If my math and guess is correct I should be called for the next T/O class. If you guys want a good guesstimate of when you will be called.......I've noticed the pattern has been about 120-150 from the last number called....give or take 20 or 30 to fill a class of 60.......this isn't written in stone.....just a pattern I noticed since list #1.........
  14. It means you're on the eligible list to be hired.......
  15. It's very important for you guys keep fighting for this job.... Yes, I said fighting for this job as in battling these hardships of taking time off to come to these PE's/DT's. This is another way of how they get from 898 to 1041 to fill a class of 60 so fast........some people just give up or in between get called from another list of a test they've taken and take that offer instead. Candidates get weeded out. If you guys are getting these PE's/DT's means you're getting close and your time will come. I took 3 PE's/DT's before finally getting into Schoolcar. The funny or cool thing about this is your perseverance will pay off and if you've notice at these PE's/DT's , you see the same faces going every time you do too......some of these people will be your classmates and more importantly your sub-classmates and you will be joking about this in Schoolcar.......So!......to kill some time....you know....waiting.....and waiting...and waiting some more when your at 180 Livingston....get a head start of meeting and knowing them...... you will be joking about this in Schoolcar too......
