2nd BOSS EXAM ??

Recommended Posts

Just wondering on Monday 4-4 I took the BOSS exam for MABSTOA 2901 a spokesman explaining the hiring process and how it starts with the BOSS exam said that after 6 to 8 weeks we should received a notice if you failed or pass the test. If you fail it,s over and if you pass you continue the process. Currently people on this list can choose to apply for MTA bus because that Agency may be hiring in 2011 and MABOSTA may not hire until 2012. If you get hired for MTA bus full time only you will be removed from the 2901 list. Anyway I asked a question about the BOSS because he asked if anyone had taken this exam before.I told him I just did the drug test for the 8006 TA list and did the BOSS in MAY 2009. He said you do not have to take the exam if you took it already,I think he mention within 2 years ? He asked me if I received a notice if I passed that BOSS exam. I told him I did not receive a notice and assume I passed because I was called in for the pre-interview and drug test. He had a lady come over to me and took my soc. security # and said he will look into it. After the test papers were handed out the lady did not give me one until that fellow came in and said he could not find anyone to get any information at this moment. After that he left and I asked the lady for the test papers and took it anyway which I remember was the same questions as the last one. Just thinking because what if I do receive this notice of the test results and fail will this affect my outcome on the 8006 that if I am still waiting on the medical or maybe medical hold or some other kind of hold??? I know one was TA the other OA but would appreciate anyones reply ,Thank You.

Nobody on the 2901 MABOSTA list will be called on TA 8006 one,s civil service the other is not but what that person made it sound like on that day was if you took the BOSS exam for 8006 and also were called for 2901 you did not have to take that test within 2 years which it was for me. Does this mean you automatically pass the 2901 BOSS? My question to him originally was what is your status if lets say you are hired on TA 8006 and down the road you are called for MABOSTA 2901? But he just talked about the BOSS.

I was told this by the fellow who explained what happens after you take the BOSS exam when I took this exam for MABOSTA 2901. He said you will receive a notice weather you pass or fail in about 6 to 8 weeks. When he asked if anyone took this exam I told him I did for 8006 TA and that,s when he asked me if I passed and that kind of threw me into a loop because I told him I never received a notice if I passed that 8006 exam but assumed I passed if you are called for pre-employment and drug test. I don,t think anyone on 8006 received a notice if you passed or failed but I don,t know about the MABOSTA BOSS test because again he made it sound like you get a notice on this one. If anyone did receive a notice on MABOSTA BOSS results please post ,Thanks.

This is incorrect.

 

The BOSS or Bus Operator Selection Survey is a 75 question, pre-employment survey used to identify personality, behavioural, or psychological attributes of candidates. The responses are then evaluated and compared to a set metric which the  (MTA) establishes. Candidates who's evaluations are satisfactory continue, those that aren't do not continue.

 

As the question was answered by myself and MHGQ04 in the [Thread: Bus Operator Exam 4600], anyone with further questions can post there and this thread can be closed.
