No. Atleast not when I did it.  You go into a bathroom. You have to remove your coat, phone, bags and put it in a locker.

I hope someone can answer this for me. I am waiting for medical. IF for whatever reason I don't get accepted, does MTA send me a notice or notify me in any way that I was denied this job OR am I never going to hear back from them ?  My list # is low 1600s... Thanks for any help.

That sounds a bit odd being that they are in the early 2,000's with the drug test already. Call the MTA Employment Center @ 1-347-643-8229/ Ms. Shivers @ 1-347-643-8218. And after you do, please post something on this forums. Good luck!!!

I took the drug test on the 29th of Oct. Thanks for your reply.

Thanks man. I talked to Ms Shivers about 2 weeks ago and last time we left off she said they were up to list 1550.  I asked her about medical and she said she has no time table on when I will be called.  It depends on how much need there are for TO at the time. She also mentioned they call 40 at a time for medical. I will try her again. Its hard to get through to her sometimes and her VM is full so I cant leave a message.  I will post here with any new info

My list # is in the 1,650's. I took the d/t twice already. It looks like we're just going to have to be patient a little while longer.

This all sounds like another FARCE to me. Why would they be in the early 2,000's already with the drug tests??? And they are calling people in the 1600's for a second drug test??? WHAT A JOKE!!!

Yeah I am not quite sure what is going on.  Someone from 180 Livingston told me the D/T is good for 90 days yet I read online someone else told somebody it is good for only 30 days.  When I call the automated # for dcas the automated machine says the last appointed TO is list #1414.

I was at 180 for a d/t today. I was told that the last appointed list number was 1616. Makes me wonder why I was called in so early. My list number is in the low 2000's. I was told that a response could take up to 90 days.

Damn I am close to 1616.. If I am not called for medical by now does that mean I got looked over for this job, I am worried now?!  Who did you talk to over there about this list #1616?

Yeah it is December 16.  I was at 180 on Wednesday.  My guess is I'd end up in the January/Feb Class.  That suits me fine.  I'd like one last Christmas/Birthday before MTA stamps "Property of TA" on my forehead LOL

They mail u a letter stating u tested positive on the drug test. They only call u to can in for medical after u pass the drug test. Hopefully u did pass the d/t. Good luck.

 

 

& here is the proof that they mail u a letter if u think I don't know what I'm talking about.

Received a letter today stating I tested positive on the drug test, giving me 10 days to follow up with the MRO or I'm disqualified. I quit smoking marijuana 5-6 months ago, guess it wasnt soon enough. Truly hope I have the opportunity to state my case and continue on to training but I'm not so sure at this point. I'm really disappointed that this is happening after all the work I went through cleaning up my act. Reading your stories were truly inspiring and I wish you all the best.

^^ That guy who failed the d/t, either he was smoking 24/7 for years on end or he is mistaken how long he quit smoking. There is absolutely no way you can test positive for marijuana if he stopped "5 to 6" months ago.

The lab tech never told me that I will receive a call if I failed. Strange how some people get told different things from others.

Does anyone know if you do fail the D/T how soon after the test do you receive the letter ?  I took a pre workout supplement a few days before that might have some banned substances and I freaking read the label on that after the D/T and this has been on my mind ever since. I am paranoid as hell.. Any timetable on when people receive the failed letter ? Thanks. I hope we all get the job and all in the same school car.
