  1. Yes your right TransitMan23 wait with along everyone ealse isn't bed in it's self. That cool. But it's the reason that I have to wait this time around is very sad. So waiting now is bitter sweet.... I say bitter, because by the time they call me back I should have been halfway though my Probation. or working some where else. $'s & %'s wise thats about 18Gs. that being the least amount. The sweet part is I still have it to look forward to. And I know I'll be coming in with some pretty cool people from here, As well as those from here that are already B/Os.

  2. Yes. thats what the lady at 180 told me. She said they just sent the list back. She said for me to go back and put my name back on the list. when they start calling again I'll be in that first class. (after all this time) I've only herd of MTA MDs putting people through that. Sadly I now know it first handed. Now I have to wait till the end of the year. when I should have been six months in to my probation. not to mention the pay from then till now. be it with TA or else where. If I was working. I would not have been able to take days off at MTA MDs every whim.

  3. Hi everyone. I have a bit of sad news. Today I was told that there wont be any classes until the end of the year. I was a bit upset seeing how they had me on hold all this time. Just for them to tell me I have one more appt. to go to. for me to be cleared. I have done every thing they asked of me. Every doc I've been to sense June have all cleared me for MTA as a B/O in passenger service. Until now four months later. Or so they said. Like they have done before. They told me that I will be in the first class. So again I have to wait it out till they began calling for B/Os again by the end of this year. Thank you locomotion. I'm trying to be. I have to go back on the 15th. To get more info about it. But thats all the info I was given today.

  4. I'll be honest if he was 1 of the best he would be a B/O.

    O feel for him but your blowing smoke up his arse!

    Please use your spell check also


    FlushingFlash Relax I wasn't talking about you nor to you. You are free to feel what ever you like as to him being one of the best or not ( in your eyes) However your not free to dictate to me how to view him or any one else. and their abilities.


    As to my spelling. I see you didn't have a problem reading what I said. In any case, Dear you are free not to read what I say on here to any one. because I'm sure I will miss spell something again. Every one makes mistakes even you. But I don't come on here to look for them. (It would be petty of me to do that to any one) I came on this site to learn and to be just as encouraging to everyone like they have been to & for me from the start. And it would be nice for it to remain that way. Please by all means have a lovelyday.

  5. Welcome: You're off to a good start with the time "years" u have behind u in driving a bus. To be a B/O for MTA is a good job. It maybe some time before the next test comes out. So when you get here in NYC. focus on getting to know it well. So you'll see if you can deal with the traffic here or not. you have 5 boroughs Staten Island, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn & Manhattan any one of them you would be sent to. So it would be good for you to take that time to know them well enough for yourself. Being able to drive well is the biggest part of it. but there are other things you will need to know just as well. at this time I'm not a B/O for MTA. But I do know that MTA has their way they want you to drive. So you would do well to read some of the post that have been put up about B/O. It's alot of helpful info on here. :tup: I hope all works out for you.

  6. I'm so so very sorry to here that 1daysoon. You have hart. How ever I don't think you should change your name at all. Because it took a lot of hard work and patience to make to the point of training. plus you made a wise choice the way you went about this whole thing. Because u had a plan "B" for just in case "8006" & THE T/O That was good planning. looking ahead. Thats what it takes to be a success at any thing you do in life. Until you get on board with MTA. There will continue from this day to be 1 less of the best B/O's out there on the road. Thank you for being honest. about what things u did wrong. that takes a lot of gutts. Even though alot of the instructors do make it hard to pass the training. You could have just blamed it on them. and we would have taken your word for it. You must be COOL PEP'S to do that. With that being said. Rightfully your name is 1daysoon / the best of the best. I'm sure all would agree you'll make it. " Thumbs" up to u all the way.

  7. Dont have time to write detailed essay on the first two weeks, but if any one interested ask a question and i will do my best to answer it


    ( I will try to write brief description later on today, will see if i get couple of free minutes )



    GOOD luck to the next class July 6 ( Monday ) DONT BE LATE !!!!!!!! they will make fun of you if you are late !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Please tell us how you are doing first and then tell us how things went as you can. ;) congrats

  8. I have to agree with the two guys above, NEVER say you drink, at all! Never even socially, 'cause they will put you down as "Alcoholic". And that will follow you your whole career.


    They will trick you, ask you "Oh yeah? Socially? Like, what?

    A few bottles?"


    You say "Yeah, a few."


    They then say "Oh, a few bottles an hour."


    WTF!?! Did I say that? Did YOU hear me say that?!


    And as said, keep the answers simple, they will try to be your friend and seem concerned. But they are NOT your friend! These quacks work like they get paid commision for each employee knocked out of service or prospective employee denied or put on Hold.


    Oh yeah, day of the call, keep your sugar level down, especially if your diabetic. They don't tell you on the phone or in the letter, but they do a blood sugar level test on you, bad level, Medical Hold till your doctor certifies you're fine.


    What is a good blood pressure level. & sugar level. To all the above Thank you for that info.B)

  9. No. I had my interview about 2 months ago, and I had called twice after a few weeks to inquire about my medical exam, and those are the times they had told me there is a hiring freeze, so they said I am waiting in a pool of other applicants.


    OK I understand what you're saying. I hope you get that call soon because thats the last thing you have to do before your in there. "Right" Can you go to that office in person to find out whats going. They should be able to tell you something by now. Hang in there don't give up:tup:. Please keep us posted. All of us HAVE or ARE going through that crazy waiting & not knowing time period like you are right now. Look at the threads about Exam 5025 & 8006. You will see it was a bit rough on all of us. But as we were waiting to get the next letter or phone call. We post what ever we learned or been through to help others that are about to go through it to. I'm sure if any one finds out something that may be helpful to you they will post it. The people on this Forum(s) are very helpful like that.:o I hope all goes well for you.
