  1. When they sit you down they will just explain to you what they expect of you and how training will work. They will ask about your previous employment if it was in a driving capacity. How familiar you are with westchester county and such. They will give you examples of the type of work you will see when you go out on your own for the first time later down the road when you pass through training. Also they will explain the safe driving awards and payouts for being a safe driver for a certain period of time.They will also discuss the extra list just in case all work is taken during the pick process and theres nothing left for you. Starting rate is 15$ an hour during the training process. once you complete training you will go on ride alongs with other drivers to get yourself familiar with the routes thats about 2 months it can be shorter if you learn quick and ask to be put out on your own sooner. Once you go out on your own for the first time you will be bumped up to your next rate which is 23$ or 24$ and hour. Then after that its every year. No group interviews. 2 hours is just an estimate shouldn't take that long. its been a long time for me so i really dont know what else they may ask you. Just show that you are going to be committed to this job if you get it and you'll be fine.
  2. No way that is possible they wont hire you intill you are at least 21 or older. And the 10 years of exp is bullshit that is not true at all. Ive seen people get hired that drove nothing but a van before. Period they are not gonna hire you at 19 way to young right now. Trust me ive been with liberty lines for 25 years now i know.
  3. No it is not. All you need is a completely clean record. And everything in order on your CDL.
  4. My older son applied for the position as well, his status is at the passed prescreening part. No luck on his end yet i hopefully he might get one still. been looking for awhile now. Good luck to you on the test!
  5. This will be my last year with Liberty Lines Transit. On January 1st 2019, i am out its been a interesting and amazing 23 years but with current situations internally with the company its going to be better to leave now then later. Still got work on the side i will do but heres to hoping i hear from Metro north sometime soon to continue a career in transit. 
  6. Ive been with liberty lines for 22 years, Im thinking of calling it quits with this company. Not going to go into detail but it isnt what the job used to be like back in the day. Im only 43 yrs of age. is there a age limit?
  7. You need to go in person to 475 saw mill river road, Yonkers, ny. Pick up a paper application and fill it out. They will ask for a 30 day driving abstract from the DMV which you can get online at home for a fee. They do not use the online application and if they do they make you come down in person to fill it out in writing.
  8. drop me a pm ill fill you in and give you some advice as well.
  9. There is one interview, After you take the exam and hopefully pass they usually give the interview the same day or within that weeks period. If you are still waiting for a responce give the HR department a call and ask about you status. If you need the HR # drop me a pm and ill give it to you. Sorry im not on here alot. Life calls.....
  10. Don't bother calling it does no good at all. It's a waiting game. A class is about to finish this week. And another one is on its 3rd week of training as we speak. So they should be calling more people pretty soon. In the next year or so 40+ drivers are expected to retire so they are trying to fill the void that will come soon. Also pay after 3 years has gone from 33.47$ to 37.47$. As of the new contract agreement.
  11. Benefits are excellent. Dental,Vison,prescription, our medical insurance recently was switched to a better provider il get a name for that later. After the end of you're third month of service your benefits will kick in. After a full year of service which is your probationary period. You will be able to join the local 100 TWU. If you don't Join you retirement age is 62 if you do join it is 59. To be able to get your full retirement package. Also they provide a great pension and 401k they don't match what ever you put into your 401k. But for the pension it is like this, every week out of your pay they take 42$ towards the pension fund and the company matchs it with 280$ towards the fund. If you do get selected all this will be explained to you in GREAT DETAIL in you're first day as its complete classroom work the first day paperwork and all.
  12. Liberty lines transit based out of the Yonkers NY garage is currently looking for drivers. Requirements: CDL B with Air brakes and passenger endorsements, or a permit with endorsements. Clean drivers record i mean nothing at all or they will not even bother with you. 21 years of age or older. If Selected the training process is about 2 months of paid training at the rate of 15$ an hour intill the end of training. After you pass the training course you are put on a cushioning period which is when you are on different route each day with a driver learning the routes for a full month or intill you are ready to go out on you're own. After your first day on your own you will be bumped up to 23.47$ an hour and after three years you will be at top rate of 37.47$ an hour. Probation is exactly one Year. One thing from me lets say you are in cushioning period you are still being paid 15$ an hour during this time. Now if you do have the chance to do a run on your own during the cushioning period do it you will be bumped up to the next rate which is 23.47$ an hour and will stay at that even when you go back to continue the cushioning period. So it works in your favor. If you have any other questions just drop me a PM.
  13. Thanks for the info guys much appreciated.
  14. I told him about giving the recruiter a call he says he called the number they gave him in the email they sent him. He said they wouldnt give him his application status over the phone. I dont know if the number they gave him is the right one to be calling about the status or not. He tried looking for a recruiting number online but couldnt find one.
  15. My oldest son Took the exam for the track worker position back in february. A week or two after they called and said he passed the exam and that they will conduct a background check. He had to sign up on a site to conduct the background check, everything came back great. Its been a few months now does anyone have an idea on what can happen next? Hes been waiting for a call for sometime i know these things can take a while a year+ even. Just looking for some insight. Thanks in advance.
