sealteam1962 Sorry to hear that you had to leave.

 

Well if you just resign no you can't go back yet it. you would have to wait it out for about 3-5 years because other people our waitting on a list to get hired. If you got a 100% on exam 8006 you will get and note and tell you to go down to HR when you for your paper work HR will pull up your info and that is where they will tell you. Also they will send you a letter after that saying how long you have to wait. I would call HR and see what they have to say so you don't feel stupid waitting at that line at HR. Good luck

Man it is not you fault for getting sick there is always a second time around

you should have just gone into work sick and all and gone SOR Sick on Run

they only care that you report sure you would have *ucked the line but your health and well being is priority number one

 

most likely they will give you a second chance there is one thing you have to remember TA/OA are not merciful and have no heart just get there and do what you have to do they can careless if you have kids to feed or bills to pay

He is right. They don't care all they want is for you to be there and report on time. I hope they take you back. because I resign and I can't drive a bus for a few years they told me that I can get hired for anything else right now . but not transportation.With in that first year of hired your on probation there is no one to protech you . Like a union with in that first year management can do whatever they want. good luck

What RTS and 3319 said is absolutely true. A fellow B/O (1 class ahead of mine), had tonsil surgery. They extended his probation for 3 months. Things do happen that no one has control over. MTA doesn't see that, especially with 4 sick leave. Even with a doctors note, MTA thinks that you and your doctor are buddy-buddy, and they will falsely sign a note/letter. They do not trust you, I or anyone else, but management. Lower rank management isn't trusted 100% either. Alot of people are excited to get the job, and love hearing only positive things, then reality hits a few months/years later. This place isn't what people think it is. Unless you work here, no one can say "all jobs are like that" etc.... What any probie should do, is come to work sick, and for the love of (whoever you worship), if you feel like vomiting, do it on the GS, AGS, or AGM desks (make sure to hit the CPU), if you are in the depot, if on the bus, as embarrassing as it might be, do it on the floor. OOS you go, back to the depot, if you feel you can drive the bus. You feel dizzy while driving stop, and vomit of the floor of the bus. Don't go outside. Give then undeniable proof you are sick. That is the way to deal with them. There is no rules that say you cannot vomit in their offices, and you can't get in trouble either. You are just leaving them proof.

 

As for if you will get re-hired. Well let me just say, one of the others who responded to that question, knows the answer to that.

DOB2RTO is right just vomit all over the place even when your going for pro exam JUST DO IT !! MTA is all about making money and if you are sick and can't work or your love one is. MTA really don't care all they care about is getting mass transit going and getting their money. that's all. I seen this guy come in late do you know what they did they sent him home gave his run to someone else. They could of gave him someone elses run but no. the man has a family to feed. MTA don't see any of that. One time they told me if it's snowing hard you have to work. Even on your time off they will call you ask if you want to work. I'm telling you when they said you will not have no life for a few years they mean it.

Most government run operations are money focused. The one exception i know is the DOD's cost plus contractor behavior that is costing taxpayers billions for no reason.

I agree with the other guys on this one. Maybe you can try your luck at MTA Bus.

Your right about that. just the pay isn't there. give it a try

 

I agree and also try (MTA) Long Island Bus usually when they have open house for Para Transit They hire for LABO Limited Assignment Bus Operators Fixed Route but i think you need a year driving a 40 footer

I work for the DMV and it is the same garbage. I called out sick 3 times in one year and I had doctor notes too and I got written up. I was put on review and this was after my 1 year probation. They can do whatever they want. If they want you out they can make up whatever excuses they want. Good luck man!!

There both different jobs, controlled by the same people. The Gov. and their cronies. Basically, it's just a switch for you.

yea, same boss but you guys get much higher pay rates. The only thing that concerns me are the customers on the bus. In the DMV if they get crazy we usually have cops or our own security guard to take care of things. On the bus you're on your own and there is nothing to separate you and the crazy customers.

Just the crowd bar, or on some, a small door. Everyone needs to make money to survive here in the N.Y. metro area. Also never forget the benefits. This is needed nowadays.

I can attest to this. If you was hired on, you’re on probation for a period of time until you attain seniority. That means you cannot miss more than three days within that 6 month period. They wanna see how good you are or if you are trustworthy.
