  1. You mean "prochain arrêt" since the noun is masculine.
  2. Mind you the Extra List is not a bad thing. You can make some serious money on it without having to work overtime on your days off, you can get some senior lines/runs, and you won't lock yourself into a workhorse junior run/line. I was on the List and Vacation Relief (different job every week) for 18 years before moving to supervision.
  3. I think there will be some good things with the TA taking control. One thing is that tests will probably happen more often than they do now, so if you don't do well on an exam, the amount of time you'll need to wait for the next one won't be as lengthy. On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if many of the tests would take place at PS248.

    Cleaner

    Car Cleaners work for the Division of Car Equipment and clean trains in stations and yards. Station Cleaners work for the Stations Department and clean stations and facilities. Each job has a different routine and the two jobs never intertwine. That is to say a Station Cleaner will never clean a subway car and a Car Cleaner will never clean a platform, etc.
  5. 91939 is correct, you must be directly hired by NYCT in order to be eligible for their promotional exams. You must have at least one day in an eligible title in order to take a promotional exam for an hourly (non-supervisory) position, one year for a supervisory position (some titles require two years).
  6. The Brakeman is the same thing as a Conductor. The only exception is that the Brakeman remains with the train when the train enters a yard/siding to apply handbrakes whereas all the regular CR's bail out at the terminal. The Brakeman has nothing to do with the movement of the train.
  7. Don't even think about going into the LIRR nor Metro North as an Engineer unless you have locomotive experience; you have no shot. What you need to do is go into the respective agency as an Assistant Conductor, Ticket Agent, Coach Cleaner, etc., then make your way into Engineer.
  8. Because, to put it bluntly, Breezy Point doesn't want any riffraff.
  9. They actually take an indefinite leave of absence from their supervisory position in order to accept the superintendent job.
  10. Hire people to drive a bus or train at $10 an hour and you risk having a workforce filled with people like those who work for the Chinatown buses and that guy who crashed the bus on I-95.
  11. Do not lie and put EVERY JOB that you've held in the last ten years on that form. They catch you in just one lie and you'll be disqualified on the spot.
