  1. He's out of luck. That list has way been expired and for promotional, transit can use the civil service rule of 1 in 3 to disqualify individuals based on other factors even though they've passed a test. So his disciplinary record very well might have made transit skip him and move to the next individuals.
  2. been there, done that. I'm a T/O now, just surprised that they started giving signal exams to conductors now. I didn't do one when I was a conductor.
  3. Dont take the job then bro. You keep complaining about this or that. Don't take up a slot that could have gone to someone else that really wants the job.
  4. during my training for conductor with SIRTOA I had a classmate who resigned on the first day. With NYCT I had a classmate resign after a few days. As a train operator I had one do the same, resigned after a week.
  5. some jobs have conductors reporting to the yards to do the put-in's with their Train Operators.
  6. suit yourself. Don't say no one warned you.
  7. Don't. All the pertinent information will be giving during school car. The worst thing instructors hate are IKEAs.
  8. this information is wrong. If you're a T/O you can only get demoted to C/R if you were one previously. If you weren't one previously, you're getting demoted to cleaner if you're not fired. C/R can get demoted to cleaners, they just aren't fired flat out. Also, when I was hired originally as a conductor, I had one question wrong. Took the test in 2008 and got hired in 2012. So I don't know about the getting hired in two years with 6 wrong.
  9. yes they are and they WILL terminate you if you lied on the forms and they find out about it later when they get around to checking your information, even if you've been working in that title for years.
  10. It's not public free. People still will come up to you to ask questions.
  11. I stand corrected. This is what happens when you've got 4-5 hours of sleep and post at 3 in the morning.

  13. Usually one week during your first year(sometimes less depending on when during the year you start), 3 weeks after 3 years, 4 weeks after 15 years. Vacation time is picked by seniority. It'll take a while for you to get vacation time during the summer since all the senior people pick their vacations during that time. It moves quicker as conductor to get better vacation time since more people promote to different titles so seniority moves quickly.
  14. My vacations to London and Madrid thanks to moving up front to T/O say otherwise. It's one thing to be truthful and another being just a negative nancy. Stop being a negative nancy just because the job wasn't what you expected.
  15. False. 16 hours in non-emergencies, you must notify control upon working your 12 hours. During emergencies I.E. During snow storm shut downs, they can hold you for as long as they need. as a conductor I was road extra for less than a year. Picked a steady job after 6 months on the job. expect 8 hours at the minimum on a good day.
  16. On the previous one, got one wrong, finished it in less than hour (possibly even less, it's been over 4 years so I don't remember). All on a lowly high school diploma. Unless you've got any transportation experience, I don't know how you consider yourself overqualified. Being a conductor isn't the same as being a burger flipper.
  17. Certain civil service titles do have city residency requirements, fortunately, Train Operator isn't one of them. Just be mindful that if you're providing your own transportation to work and you're late, you're on your own. If you live far away in other states like NJ, CT and PA, this might make it tough. Transit only validates lateness if you use the subway system.
