Well depends on how much ppl they need to fill in. I took my second drug test on 5/2, about four days later I got that call to take my medical which was 5/11. After my medical I report to zerega on 5/23. Hope that gives you some insight and good look bro, make sure your blood pressure is right and ect. :tup:

In accordance to transit bx has already posted- you officially 'have' the job when you past the Zerega classes in the Bronx.

Yea that's right you officially get the job once you pass zerega, and as far as BP and diabetes I hope you do have it control when its time for your medical, this on guy that was suppose to be in my class starting on 5/23 got put on medical hold cause his BP was at the boarder line smh I was:mad: when he told. So a few days later he said they will put him in a new class. So make sure you get that check before you go to mta doctor.:tup:

Just make sure your a1c level is 7 or below. They may put you a medical hold so that you can take their form to your doctor to clear you. And make sure you have your bp under control as well. I too am type 2 diabetic, and was put on medical hold for a C/R promotion. I got clearance from my doctor, but decided that the C/R job wasn't for me. I will pursue the T/O job when it comes out again.

You could have taken the C/R job and then be promoted to T/O or was there something else in mind?

What do u mean by your second drug test? Is it possible that they might call u for drug test again?...Reason I'm askin this is because I was called for drug test on April 19...They told me that they will call me within 30 days...I still haven't heard anything?

I know, but I never wanted to do the C/R job, I was never interested in it. I took the exam because it was the only promo exam available at that time. And I believe in taking all promo exams I qualify for. I was laid off at the time they sent me the notice for pre employment and they sent me my reinstatement letter as well. So I pursued it just to get back into the (MTA). But once I got my old job back I changed my mind.

Yea at this time its more then likely that your going to get call for a second drug test. It happen to not only me but to a couple of ppl. Your drug test is only good for up to 30 days. But when you do receive that second drug test, they call me back fast which was about 4 days later.

Whoa! 13???, that pretty high. I'm sure you've got it much lower than that now. I usually float around 8 or 9. But when I was first diagnosed I was pretty high too. I was around 17, the doctor's where looking at me like how am I still walking and talking and not in a coma. But once you get clearance from your doctor you will be cool. Just be prepared to be going to transits clinics very often.

Well it took about a month and a half, cause I took mt first drug test on 3/8, which I never got a call back for a medical. So they called me back around the end of april which I took it on may 2. Then I got the call to come in for my medical four days later which was for the following week, so I start at zerega this monday on the 23. You officially get the job if you pass zerega on day 7th if not the 7th, you have until the w0th day to show you can handle the bus hope that give you some insight. If they call you back for your second drug test, you should receive a call back for your medical real fast. So good luck.:tup:

No, when the list expires, so does your list number and results. The only way you'll be put on a new list is if you took that exam.
