First off you are wrong, I am not the same person, I dont need to have multiple accounts and second you are ruining another thread with your weak posts that have nothing to do with what the original poster asked.

well here's an odd question (i dont THINK ive asked it before). how many times can you say "no" when they call you before they completely take you off the list? because if the wait is really gonna be as long as you guys say it will be, i'll be pushing 10 years at the post office, meaning i can collect a small pension for the rest of my life if i leave after june 2015. so if the (MTA) doesnt call me until somewhere around 2014 i might try to use delay tactics (risky, i know, considering they dont hire as much anymore and i would be losing seniority to people who scored lower than me, but its very hard to give up a guaranteed pension! someone at work told me you can say "no" 3 times before they take you off the list but he's not exactly reliable with his information

 

You only have to say no once. Then they will skip you and move on.

 

However, if you want to be restored to the list in your original order, you can ask to be restored to the list.

 

So, simply put, if that's what you want, decline the call when it initially comes, then restore your name to the list when you're ready.

 

But be aware the risk you are taking when you do that. If you wait too long, you won't get called at all for the job, and the clock starts over again...alllllllll the way back to waiting for the filing period to begin.

To add onto SubwayGuy's great response, I was told that you can decline an appointment a maximum of three times, after which your name will be removed from the list of eligibles for that current list. To again be considered for hiring, you would have to take the next exam for the same title. I'll try to find something official on that.

0 times. When they call you, decide then whether or not you want to take the job. If you say no it will likely be a kiss-of-death and you may not get the opportunity to accept it again.

Oh I see now.

You scored low on the T/O exam? A decent list number will at least keep you in the mix.

 

mine is 2015. I don't know how decent that is or if its decent at all.

I see, well the way it's going when and if you are called up it'll likely be a long time from now. I didn't score well myself on C/R exam (1700's)so i have plenty of doubt. The way I see it however, it's better to be on the list then not. hell i remember a few months ago peeps from the very bottom of some Bus operator list were getting called up for processing. Obviously that's a totally different post with different needs but it certainly proves that there is a "you simply don't know factor" lol. I mean I'm sure plenty of those people had to be thinking "bah! I'm all the way at the bottom, lost case next".

Well last C/R exam called just over 3000 people from the list. Not sure if T/O will go just as high. But both you guys are at least still in the running's. It may take a while to get your number but there is still a good chance they will.

With a # like that you got a decent shot at it, but it'll be a wait for sure so try and find something else in the meantime if you haven't already.

You have a shot at getting called for to urban but it will be at the very end

The last people called from the list so maybe 5-6 years from now

The last conductor list was established in august of 2005 and people were called in

October 2005 only a 2 month difference very insignificant

I got a 95 on that test as well, but with a list number in the 1100s. Boo to the tiebreaker method, I don't get to choose my SSN :confused: Does anyone know what the last number is? How many are on the list?

i heard a rumor from my friend today that the union is trying to get the next contract to include ways to get the people who were laid off to fill the train operator/conductor slots rather than hire us. does anyone know the validity of this statement?

Unless the people who were laid off were previously condcutors and T/Os, which none of them were, then I don't see that happening.
