New hire question

Recommended Posts

I know a guy who's nephew was in training from the 5025 list and quit because he was getting similar hours like you have. He had a connection at Pioneer school bus and went there instead. Can you imagine? Why did he even take the BO test? Anyway, I'd love the 1630 shift. You miss school kids and go home to a normal (somewhat) night sleep and have the next day to do what you need to before going back..

I guess these days we take the shift they give us when it comes.

 

School Bus is OK but doing this for 10 years, time to move on . Pioneer bus bus company is all good a 1181 ATU union, drivers make the same as MTA divers after 5 yrs. $29.98 per hr.

while i was talking my cdl lessons on a school bus i had to get

backed up once while making a left on troutman st coming from woodward ave.

There was a snapple truck double parked near the corner making a delivery to a deli.

 

Sjdmt: I read on here that you are better off telling the

instructor that you don't think you can complete the turn

which is better then jumping the curb, etc. Sounds like

you are getting the hang of it, you can only get better.:tup:

 

thank you and yes i passed the mtata training now i have to do the dmv test

Congrats! You had us wondering there for awhile.

You get 2 tries with the DMV road test, but you

should be all right.

 

Make sure you put Fresh Pond as your number 1 choice.

Depot selection is based on your list number and

any available slots at the depots. With your list number I am afraid is going to be one of the last ones to pick.

Come to the Pond, i know there is always open work runs here.Now you will be doing line training and you see the real job. Your going to train with some old timers who thinks when someone don't pay the fare that they are stealing from there pockets. Just let it slide it not your money. Congrats now just to pass the DMV test and one year probation.
