  1. Not accurate . As far as technologies, the 179s are more in line with the 143s and 160s with only small improvements here and there. The 211s will be a whole new way of working. As far as trainlining current NTTs, they only can mechanically. Meaning, if the need to do a mix consist for a non-revenue move, they can. But that's it. They won't mix well in passenger service.
  2. I wish someone told me this back in 2015 when I was terminated. I too made it to the 9 month mark. After getting "1 in three'd" this time around I was told I too can get my name Restored on the list. About to do that next month.
  3. Once you got hired, that's it for you on that list. You can indeed take the next test. I'm currently working on getting recertified onto this list since I was one in three'd. That you can try.
  4. Nope. But I know what ot was which is BS to me since when I wad terminated, I made sure to ask if I can reapply and get rehited and they told me yeah cause they even rehire felons.
  5. So I finally got the letter in the mail from transit saying that I was passed over. Someone inside told me that I can get my name put back on this list but the letter says only Transit can request to put me back on the list. It's not lookin good for my return.
  6. Short sleeves are OK. Infact, when you get your uniform, it consists of both short and long sleeve shirts.
  7. Before you can retire, you have to do 25 years, or until you're 55. Which ever comes last.
  8. So im going to assume-key word- that either they want to make sure your first one wasn't botched, or they found something unusual and want to verify with a second. Nothing major. Just go thru with it woth no worries. Not every lab gets every test right.
  9. They do the 1 in 3 between the pre employment and the medical/final processing.
  10. Every list, open competitive and promotional, is subject to the 1 in 3 rule.
  11. I'm trying but idk man. Everyone gets an email. They go past my number by 90 and tell me they sent a letter I'm getting any day now. A friend of mine got a letter last summer when they were up to his number. He fell victim to the 1 in 3 rule. If one person here who got called for Medical for this test received a letter instead of an email I'll be less worried. But they did pass my number.
  12. I called before I wrote that post. They told me they sent a letter I should be getting any day now.
  13. I'm 155x and I just called and was told to expect a letter in the mail. This isn't looking good.
  14. What are the odds that they have already filled up the July class? 155x and still waiting on the email.
  15. Evrythign except bus op, RTO and any other positions deemed Service Delivery. Basically the jobs that are on freeze involves working in the office buildings. What we are waiting for are not frozen. They will continue to hire on a as needed basis until further notice. So for all those who are above 155x don't worry about the freeze. If they stop calling for a while, it's because no positions are available yet. When they are, they will resume.
  16. So how it goes is, when you start orientation/school car, you are on probation for one year. After the year, you are no linger probationary and a civil service employee. During thst probation, you can be terminated at their discretion basically. Nine months in I was terminated. So I had to wait for the next test, take it all over again, now here I am waiting for my medical/final processing email.
  17. Yes. I didn't make it through probation. Let's just say, when they tell you be careful even when your not on the clock, they aren't playing. Even if you're not doing anything wrong yourself.
  18. According to an internal memo, there is a hiring freeze EXCEPT for "service delivery" positions.
  19. As far as the q114 reroute, it's about time! The issue isn't the Q113 being unreliable, it's more of the flooding that constantly happens along Brookvile Rd. As far as traffic along Rockaway Blvd, it's only bad between the Nassau expressway and Brookville. Between brookvilke and Brewer, it's a straight highway-like shot with about one or two traffic lights in between. This change is also streamlining the two routes, similar to the q52/53 for when it may just become sbs in the future. The only difference between the q113/114 now is the routing within nassau county.
  20. Not exactly. See, right after that test was given, there was a full hiring freeze, so it was a few years before they started calling from that one. I woukd know, I took that test and got hired from it. But there really isn't no time-frame. It varies depending on when they need people.
  21. I'm so anxious! Still waiting for the Medical email. 155x and nothing in my email yet.
  22. Has anyone else in the 155x's or higher besides Riku received the email for final processing?
  23. That means I should be getting mine too any day now.
