  1. Not much on Promotions just retirements. They don't promote many T/O's to Supervisors.
  2. Here is the Problem TWU has to wait for the SSSA to settle before getting serious. The Supervisors are still trying to get a contract from 2009
  3. If I am still there when you hit the road you got a good chance of seeing me. We got s pick coming up.
  4. Glad School car is working out so far. Just have fun and learn. Also to get paid you must sign the payroll every day In and out. This case the TSS messed up but I'm sure they are taken care of it. Once again good luck to all our new C/R and T/O students. If anyone got questions I'll do my Best to answer them. Those that don't know me I'm a Road TSS in A Div.
  5. All I can say is do what you think is right. I loved being a T/O and did it for 6 Years. However just keep in mind working Holidays, Nights and weekends is part of the job and working up to 12-14 hours when you start in any part of the city will be routine. However also long as you do your job the right way your paycheck will always be waiting for you every 2 weeks.
  6. If I wasn't so busy working 16 Hours a day during the storm I would have currected that person post. People should not post if they are clueless on the subject at hand. Glad you made it and look foward seeing you out in the field.
  7. Those who failed to show up will have to put thier names back on the list in order to be called in Dec. Storm or No storm Future and current employees must show up unless told not too. Once again welcome to transit to all the new Hires.
  8. I'm hearing they going to hire about 120 new T/O's by the end of the year. There suppose 3 big classes by the end of the year.
  9. Good luck to everyone starting tomorrow. Read that rulebook!!
  10. TA workers like RTOman speak the Truth it's a cut troat railroad. It's easy to get the job just hard to keep you need to be 100 % at all times especially in the front. If your not it's my job to take you downtown. I take no joy in doing it but it's my job overrun a station or hit a signal your going to see the man. However my advise is pay attention in school car learn your job and do it at the best of your ability leave your problems at home and also focus on your job. Don't try to operate a train like you have time just get your own feel for the train.
  11. Yes you can be disquilied for that. Also they ask you if you snoore. You say Yes they going to want you to be tested for Sleep Apnea. If they find out during your career they will restrict you until you are treated and conditions improve. Most Train Crew I know spend a average of 6 Months restricted.
  12. Yeah we got about 7 C/R's this year looking for other employment. Someone under my watch got their walking papers last month.
  13. It's the hot spot lots of T/O and C/R's are messIng up some lost their jobs at that location.
  14. You got to really watch out in A Div as soon as you road post no room for rookie mistakes if you do you going to develop a rap sheet. The good old days are gone.
  15. Yes exactly what RTOman posted. However they are starving for School car TSS's they had a memo since Aug for any TSS with over 2 years to apply. Not many or maybe no takers. So now deadline is extended and now it's open to any TSS who wants school car so those new TSS can be sent to teach. I been tapped for it but have also declined it. I love the road.
  16. Yeah TW/O and T/D / CTD all making money with 12 hour tours.
  17. I believe TW/O is one of the best jobs in transit exept the hours suck on the PM jobs and your days off come with most jobs. Also it's hard to move up seniority wise when they are cutting jobs. I guess the bleeding will stop after they finish the A Div cuts. Last I heard Unionport and Mott will be gone next pick.
  18. Yeah if TSS's are leaving and they don't get replaced it has an effect on how many classes they can do. Also TSS's from the road are on loan meaning they have to stay for 6 months to 1 Year and some of them from last year have to return to thier picked jobs now.
  19. They got a School car class doing Road Ops today so they are almost done. Right now they got a shortage of School car TSS/ T/D. The TSS teach C/R's / T/O's /TWO'S/ TSS's. The T/D's teach TWO AND ATD/TD classes. They got a notice out for Supervisors to apply for School car. If they don't get too many applications then they draft supervison from the road.
  20. I was a A Div C/R then when I got Promoted to T/O I was forced to the B Div. I lived in the Pocono's so I feared the worst, It wasn't bad at all I spend most of my RX days at 207 / 168 and Bedford Pk. The B div grew on me and when I got time I would keep changing divisions every other pick going B to A then A TO B. Now as a TSS I'm back home in the A Div. I live near around Phila to I take the train to Penn Station so I don't care where I work now.
  21. Well the R 68A gives B Div T/O's trouble but the R62 on the 3 line is almost the same thing
  22. The B Div you can report anywhere from Bedford Pk Bx, 179 Jamaica or Far Rock. However the B Div is better then the A Div crew office. The B Div looks are where you live so you would get Uptown and Queens jobs mostly. However they will throw you a curve like a Coney Island report a few times. The A Div mostly has jobs uptown but they like to change up the tours and RDO's and give you a New Lots Ave report a few times.
  23. Ok End of August is looking like a mixed class end of the Promotional list and beginning of O/C list. So forget my last post.
  24. I always like having middle of the week RDO's the work week goes fast and you don't have large crawds when you do things on your day off.
  25. Its looking like Aug for a Promotional T/O class Right and maybe Sept or Oct they start the O/C List now they got a shortage of School car TSS's do to some went to other Departments and Promotions. They normally have to draft TSS's from the ROAD but we got a shorage so its not looking like that will happen. Thats the word on the Street.
