Exam 2901 MABSTOA?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, i'm on the waiting list for 2901 and was wondering how long is the wait going to be? I heard they were going to hire 1200 bus operators this year. When I call to 180 Livingston they don't know anything. They said they're calling 2801 and 2501(MTA)

it depends on your list #. since it's a random #, you do need some luck. if your # is 2000 or more. it's def gonna be a long wait.

a dispatcher told me they are hiring 600 B/O in the summer alone. they may need to call about 2000 people in order to get 600:tup:

Dude, get your facts straight. First you say they won't start calling until the end of 2010, now you say not until this fall(09).

 

It is obvious that since TA is the biggest bus division that the bulk of the 1,200 positions would be filled from the 5025 list.

 

Gabchi: If this is true that is great news for you, the only other list going on will be the MTA Bus, which there are only 5 depots. 2 more months of summer left, 5 classes to go including the one that starts on Monday(20th). Keep in mind that only around 40-50% graduate from each class of 105.

Thank you kindly Operator, that is all that I really wanted to know, "only t/a is still moving."The other lists don't concern me.

I am on the #8006, list #706, still a ways to go. That would be most likely the 3rd class from the list once they start hiring from it.

 

Casey Stengel is my 1st choice if it's available. I want to stay in Queens, Queens Village, 2nd choice, Jamaica, 3rd choice.

 

I asked this before on another thread, and I didn't get an answer. When does a list "officially" end? Is it when they reach the last list number? Or when they go through all of the "on holds" from the list after they reach the last list number. I know the 5025 expires in the fall of 2011.
