    MaBSTOA #4105 Hiring Process

    Unless you start before a pick starts (and can then pick your work), you'll be on the extra list. More than likely, your days off will be during the week. Time of day work depends on the particular slot but work on the list is assigned in report time order. So slot 1 would get the first open job, slot 2 gets the second and so forth. You can be towards the bottom (in the "PM" slots) of the list and still be assigned an AM report, as long as you have 8 hours in between work.

    Yes, they do it all the time. They will grab anyone for overtime and pull buses off their runs for the shuttle.

    It's not a move. Meredith fuels/wash and maintain their buses at Castleton and does the X10 during the day.

    You don't need the letter, they will print one when you get there. Definitely make sure your address gets updated when you're there. (although the pre-employment process should do that)
  8. They don't care. They just need to know that you had the job.

    Driveaway companies contracted by the manufacturer. They get their hotels/flights paid for throughout the trip.

    Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    You will accrue different type of days in your "Leave Balance" bank that you can take days off with. Aside from vacation days, you will also accrue: -AVAs/Holidays (after 90 days of service) -Personal Day (after 1 full year of service, available the following January 1st) -Overtime Offset (Known as OTO, if you get overtime, you can elect to bank the straight time into this bank. 8 hours become 1 day. Quick example, you work a day off, that's 12 hours all together. (8 hrs straight, 4 hrs OT) you can bank the minimum 2 hours or bank the whole 8 hours of straight time.) Once you have your days, you will then request them via the IVR system. (See spoiler at bottom of post) You will get 1 vacation day for each month of work you complete, that will be usable in January. If you have 5 or more days, you should be able to pick a week vacation. Whether or not you'll be able to get that particular week boils down to seniority and available slots for that week. If you can't get the week (or you have less than 5 vacation days), then you will have to request the days off in the automated system. You will learn about the IVR. 20 days from the date that you want to take off, you call in and request the date and type of day you want to use. (Because by then, you will be able to save holidays (AVAs) to use as a type of day off) Also talk to your union reps about needing this time off. They may be able to help you moreso, if you already have tickets purchased, etc.

    You'll do the drug test again and see the TA doctor to get cleared for work. Then scheduled for final processing and put in a training class.
  13. August 19th is definitely the start of this system/Fall pick till January. I did the first part of training over the weekend. They are still tweaking the route paths and adding back stops (most notably the stops along the X10). The Super Express P&R trips will leave every 20 mins instead of 60 mins. There are a few other changes in the works that I can't speak about. Schedules and depot assignments will be released sometime next month, when we get to picking.

    You would do the medical and just the paperwork for the drug test.
