Exam #2901 B\O any movement?

Recommended Posts

Just say NO....No to part time work!!! Full Time....trust me you are just a number around here.....just imagine being a part time number!!!.......You need to ask yourself this question....do I want to work for an Agency that fought it's workers tooth and nail on Raises that an arbitrator awarded....An Arbitrator awarded......that is a final....they spent who knows how much on legal fee's to not give us raises.....that we will get anyway.....An Arbitrator awarded.....It is still mind blowing to me that they fought it.....so now they will award you with part time work with no benefits.....when a full time position becomes available you will be first to get it....but who says that they will ever have a full time position to fill?? The whole Idea is to hire part-timers and not pay them any benefits....You should ask to speak to Jay Walder when you go to 180 Livingston street and ask him to take on part time work with no benefits.....this is a guy who gets a 50 thousand dollar a year house expense...that you will not make ever.......as a part timer anyway.....

 

Good Luck to all those that run down and take on part time work........don't let them use the economy against you.....

It generally doesn't look good if you've omitted information from them, but you should be okay. Is there a reason you didn't put those jobs, or did you forget?

@ willbx718 I totally forgot those to jobs because I just recently found my job history that I got from the social security place, which those was the two jobs I forgot to put down. Maybe because those two jobs I had, I only work for only a week then left the two jobs. Those two jobs I had was like back in 03 and 05. Also will when do the mta start to investigate your background, is it after you take your drug test to see if they found anything wrong from work history and ect. To see if they get the ok to give you a call back for your medical or is it when the call you in for you medical then they start.

I'm not 100% on as to when they do the check. But I've heard stories of people being canned for lying after they where hired. You were supposed to get that ss print out before you completed the 20 page application, they mentioned this at 180. I don't think it will be a major issue since you weren't at those jobs long.

So what should I do, should I tell them when I go for my medical/ interview about those to jobs. And if that was the case when I took my first drug test I'm pretty sure they had to do some type of background check, if it was a big issue I don't think they would had call me in for a second drug test. I know when I filled out the application for connecticut transit I did not even put down those to jobs only because I was there at both jobs for no more then two weeks which on that application they wanted 10 years work history. I hope they don't DQ me.:(

No that shouldn't dq you. I would ask for another pre employment application when you go for the medical. Just explain the situation to them and see what the say. :tup:

No problem always willing to help out a future TWU brother or sister. Don't worry too much about the phone numbers. I didn't have phone numbers to some of the jobs I had. But if you feel more comfortable having the phone numbers, just google them and you should get a number to the store. But yeah once they ask who's here for a medical and make you line up, just let the lady at the counter know your situation.
