  1. you are being called for a temporary position because they need guys to do the job. Once you take the test and pass the test you will be put on a list. Once they start calling people from that list they will make you permanent. The reason they are calling you for the temporary position is because you had a strong resume. In the meantime all the time you accrue as a temporary employee will count towards your pension , vacation etc.
  2. what do you want to know about the practical? Did you take the last one? If you are taking the next test, first there should be a written and if you pass that you go to a practical
  3. I also think that SIRTOA pays a lot less. Why would you want to make that move?
  4. it was a 3 year ridiculous ordeal that went nowhere.. I took the following test and was able to pass it. I would still appeal if I were you but do not expect anything and keep filing for future and present tests.
  5. They are calling from the current list. 3 guys from my barn are going during the week. Anyone else going down?
  6. go on to the chief.com and you can get your list number. You actualy should have a letter at your house with your score and possible list number, If you are going for the job as car inspector do not buy boots. They will supply boots for you. Just wear a pair of clean work pants and work boots or shoes on your first day of orientation. Car inspectors wear regular work pants to work of your own choosing.
  7. the new car inspector list is out for anyone who took the recent practical exam
  8. Staten Island Rapid Transit Operating Agency
  9. The problem is they will not wait for you. If they need 25 guys for example and you cannot show up they will just take the next person. You could possibly be in the next class if there is a next class. Why dont you call them and tell them the situation.
  10. If the tickets are pending that means that you dont have a problem. Only the RCIs, really need to make sure they have a license. Just make sure you tell them about these on the questionaire if they ask.
  11. The Car Inspector job is up again as a provisional job. On NYCT website
  12. Journey is never over. You have to try again. I failed the test in 09 and then did very well on the before the last one. It is a good job and there is no reason to give up that easy. I hear that alot of people had trouble with the test and there might possibly be another one soon, In the meantime, transit always has openings for people in the mechanical trades. Just keeping looking at their website.
  13. It normally depends on how many people they need. For example if they have 300 provisionals working and then a list comes out with 400 people on it there is cause for concern. If they have 300 provisionals and the list comes out with 200 on it normally everyone is safe. This is just what i have seen and heard however and not a rule. You reall want to get permanent as soon as you can.
  14. congrats, when do you start? Permanent or provisional?
  15. yes, I am Lazarus. I got lucky with my list number. How did you do?
  16. The list for Car Inspector exam number 2606 is finally out. I went to The Chief online and viewed the list. You have to subscribe to do this or you can wait until Tuesday when the new one comes out.
  17. Make sure you call and get that cleared up. I think they called everyone from that list already, I am currently a provisional Car Inspector. There are alot of provisionals in the system now. They call from the list first before they hire provisionally. For some reason you were removed from the list. It is normally that they cannot get in touch with you or you declined the appointment, etc. You should really call or go down to the transit authority building on Livingston street in brooklyn., I took the test after yours and they say our list should be out within a few weeks. There is no reason why you should not be working already.
  18. There are alot of us waiting for the results of 2606. I hear that only 30 to 40 percent of the people who took the practical actually passed it. I also took another written test a few months ago I have spoken to the Union a few times and they are saying that the results are due this month or August. However, things change all the time and I will not hold my breath.
  19. i think both the classes were ci but i think an rci class is soon to follow
  20. there are two different classes in the school right now, They need people and there will probably be another class after yours, Good luck in training
  21. well there is a new class starting this week, I was 131 and i am told they are looking to hire another 100 guys, The good thing is the job is still listed so they need people,, Good luck
  22. i actually found it on the mta website, Thanks
  23. Right now i am still in training. There is good and bad with all different jobs in transit. I have another 2 weeks to go before i get into the field. I really took this job because i would eventually like to wind up in the coney island yard.It is a high seniority yard and it could be awhile but i know i will get there.
  24. I work for nyc transit and also asked for a leave of absence. I was told i could not take a leave of absence to go to another job, I had to resgin my position in order to take the new position. I have heard many conflicting reports about the seniority thing. You had better talk to human resources before you attempt to take a leave of absence. I am 51 years old and have also been a mechanic all my life and i did not pass the practical the last time i took it.
