    Probation is 1 year from the hire date BUT will be extended by a day for each sick or unpaid day that you take off, including FMLA.

    After stocking parts at the depot and training maintenance, sure they can.

    http://web.mta.info/nyct/hr/pdf/CorrectionForm.pdf Fill that out and email it to them, examsunit@nyct.com ; Also, the next time you go down to 180 Livingston for your employment process, make sure they have your new address on file. If not, write it in when you fill out the paperwork.

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Don't ask, lmao. The day after my probation, I went from 11 to 32.

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    You get a sick day each month for your first year, then you get bumped up to 32, when you finish probation. After that, you get 12 days every May 1st. There's nothing wrong with taking days or running out if you are legit sick or unable to work. But if you're banging out because the sky is blue and/or you establish a pattern of banging out, then it'll be a problem.

    B/O 4600 Hiring Process

    1. Assuming that you are claiming 0 exemptions for both federal and state tax AND no other deductions, you will be looking at $1100-1200 a check for 80 hour pay periods. When you get your first paycheck after the 10 day training, it will be for 80 hours. You will be definitely be getting more than 80 hour checks because of the overtime that you'll get from working the list, being late, etc. Last year, I grossed $77,000 making $27.25/hr, so just going off the base salary wouldn't be enough to go off. Top pay as of right now is $34.06/hr. 2. This job is what you make of it. It can be stressful and it will be in the beginning. Not everyone is built to be driving a bus where they have to co-exist with other drivers and pedestrians who care less about the fact that you're driving a bus. Then, there's the stress that stem from the passengers and trying to make it thru probation, etc. If you enjoy driving, then you're already a leg up from everyone else. Me personally, I love the job. When I'm working the express lines and get on the highway, it's the best thing ever. 3. Again, depends on you. Some lines you learn easy, some you won't. When you go to your first depot for line training, you will learn all the lines out of that depot. However, if you pick out to another depot (or get bumped out), then you will have to learn that depot's lines. If you come to Staten Island, you will be learning ALL the local and express routes. I lived in Queens and got forced to Staten Island and I had no idea where anything was but I made it my mission to not mess up any of the routes that I had to drive. Only messed up the S57 during line training, only because I mistaken the street I had to turn down with the following street. (Which was save-able because all I had to do was go around the block) 4. If you don't know, you are to pull over and call the Command Center and they will assist you either by giving you directions or by sending supervision to your location. Alternatively, you can flag down a police officer for assistance or another bus and they will help you out. The passengers also know the route so they can sometimes help you out. When in doubt, stop and stay and wait for assistance. You don't want to get stuck down a narrow street and wind up getting stuck (which is OK) and hitting something. (Which is not OK) 5. You get two days off together with some exceptions. When a new pick starts, you assume the new RDOs (Regular Days Off) of the work you picked. The work week runs from Sunday through Saturday and picks always start on a Sunday. For example, if you had Tues-Weds off the last pick and your new pick has Thurs-Friday off, you will be working the week straight. So your work week will look like this: SUNDAY- MONDAY (WORK), TUESDAY-WEDNESDAY (OFF), THURS-SAT (WORK). [Old pick ends] [New pick starts] SUN-WED (WORK), THURS-FRI (OFF), SAT (WORK) If you pick Vacation Relief, then your RDOs will change every week, because you will be assuming the work and days off of operators on vacation. Yes, you can bank any overtime earned to use for a day off. You need a minimum of 8 hours to take a day off, and if you want to be paid your run pay (if greater than 8 hours), then the time in your bank has to match that run pay. For example, if your run pays 11:50, you can get the day off with just having 8 hours in your bank but if you want to NOT lose money, then you need that 11:50 in the bank. You can PM me, I can get in depth with all of this.

    MTA Bus Operations: On-board screens and announcements

    I picked up 8257 last night from the ferry and they asked me to do a 76 trip before going back to the depot. I get outside the ferry and it started doing the transfers. Had me tripping for a bit.
  15. If the Notice of Examination for your exam says that by the time of appointment, that you needed 3 years, they will tell you to come back when you reach that mark.
