Conductor 8094 Hiring Process

Recommended Posts

Just noticed your sig and in reference to that, that would be totally awsome. I onced worked with my dad for a short while, cant say I enjoyed it or hated it, but it was odd. You may very well get your chance to do that. Out of curiosity, care to give a ballpark figure on your list number?

 

Oh yea? I remember him taking me to his job on "take you kid to work day"..even back when he was a C/R himself. I had the greatest time especially since I didnt get to see him much at that time because he was ALL OVER the place ! LOL. I thought my dad had one of the coolest jobs in the world and I still feel that way.

 

List # 12**

Thanks for the welcome everyone! I look forward to my new career. Just out of curiosity what are the normal shifts for conductors? Like 8-4, 4-12 & 12-8? And which is the one most newbies get put on?

 

There are no "normal" shifts. You will be sent anywhere and everywhere within your division (EITHER the number OR letter subway routes, but not both)...and can be asked to work any number of hours (up to 16) on any 5 days of the week. Your shifts will change every week.

 

But you'll get great benefits (one of the last jobs in this country that still comes with a defined benefit pension plan), a good salary, and you'll have job security. And when you get enough time in your job title, you can start picking the shifts and jobs on the lines you want during the hours you want on the days you want. Given the state of the economy, and the stuff that I'm always posting in Off Topic, that's a pretty good tradeoff.

Dan you can also call em up just to check your status. Wouldn't hurt, or just drop by if you are in the neighborhood. Those people at office seem very nice, sure they would give you some advice. Good luck

Just like another poster said once you are done and pass Schoolcar you can be on any tour (AMs PMs Midnights) due to the needs of the service. Have different days off(which they can change week by week). Until you are able to pick a job with more steady hrs and days off. Just stick it out it may get tough because your LIFE now is the MTA's... Hopefully you dont have Weddings to go to or other major plans in the works.. :P

 

Still you will have good benifits and good pay in todays economy thats a plus!

Well raddu, don't dismiss mta all together. U do have four years to come back to mta. Nypd isn't for everyone, and I am speaking from experience. Am just happy to be going to mta and leaving nypd and all its problems behind me. But good luck, remember you have four years to still take the job. All the best and be ready to run five miles everyday.:)

If you're on both lists, take whatever calls you first. Just get your foot in the door. Always easier to promote than to get in from outside transit.

I'm on the list; my number is 994. I'm also on the T/O list (8098) and my number is 152. Any idea when they will start calling from the O/C portion of 8098?

So when are they going to be seding letters to those with list numbers beyond 201? Only the first 200 got called so far, right?
