Hiring Freeze

Recommended Posts

Guys/Gals/Its, there isn't anything any employee on here can do, or find out anymore. You will have just as much luck calling them yourselves, being stern to find out what is going on, and even possibly calling DCAS (for TA), and MTA headquarters (for non-TA positions), and expressing your feelings to what you think is happening. I don't why they would come up with another bus exam, when they have a huge list to call, and hire first. The only people who know what is going on is human resources, not any depot, road, line, or station superintendent, nor any manager. Only the hire ups beyond these two levels will know anything. All I can tell you is keep calling H/R at MTA, and ask them if they will be calling any more from the list you are on, or will they just get rid of it, and hire from a new list from the next exam....... I will say this, and that it is unfair to you all, and you should get your monies back. They should not, and it should be against the law to start a new list, if they haven't gotten at least through 90% of a old list. You paid to get a chance at something, and for them to possibly throw most of it away, and start a new one, is theft in my book........

 

You are 100% correct. I don't think they(MTA or TA)is covered under the NYC Civil Service law,which states that an exam must be given every 4 years unless there is a hiring freeze then the list gets extended.

 

It isn't so much about the exam fee but being lied to,etc.

DCAS is totally different agency it goes by them when to post up results and list numbers. MTA has no control over DCAS just keep calling the DCAS number to get your results if they haven't posted them up on the website that's what I do.

the mayor has no control over the mta

 

Are you sure about that? IIRC the mayor changed the assignments on the R142's when they were new, putting them all on lex ave lines. But i don't know how true that is though. Also didn't the mayor have something to do with the MTA taking over the PBL?

It's been 5 months since some of us in here took exam #8006. At least give us our scores and list numbers,so at least we know where we stand. How long can that take? I am sure it didn't take them very long to process the filing fee for the exam.

 

Exam results for 8006: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dcas/downloads/pdf/keys/Kbusoperator8006.pdf

 

you can calculate the scores and get an idea about your score.

 

My husband took 5025 and it took almost a year, maybe longer to get list number.

 

Still waiting to hear.

He didn't personally assign them. Apparently, he expressed that he wanted the Lex to run all NTTs since there are a lot of tourist destinations along that route, therefore using it to showcase the new equipment. I'm doubt the (MTA) absolutely had to follow the suggestion.

Yes,I am vantastic10 over there,and I just answered your question. The waiting is most definitely the hardest part. Does your hubby have a preference? or is it whoever calls him first is where he will go.

The City of New York has absolutely no say in what MTA does. MTA is a state agency, and the state legislature has final say in alot of matters. Now saying that, the City of New York does have alot of influence, since it is the biggest money giver to MTA, for NYCTA, LIRR, and MNRR. Even the feds have say in NYCTA. Why? Federal dollars, that's why.........

Whoever calls first- I think he is in same boat as you, he is 40 but in good shape. Thank goodness no age requirements.

 

There is a law that they can't discriminate because of age with the exception of law enforcement and firefighting. You can work as a Sanitation worker until the day you die. Interesting read in the Chief online civil service newspaper. There are around 150 DSNY employees in the dept over the age of 60. There have been people hired over the age of 50,not the norm of course.

 

What matters is the ability to do the job,the older workers don't have a higher sick or accident rate on the job then anybody else.

 

The government is going to eventually have to raise the retirement age into the low 70's as people live longer these days.

 

Does your husband plan on taking the exam again in 2011 if he doesn't make this time around? I know I will,will be 41 yrs old in 2011 but I am in good shape for somebody my age. I also think I can score better the 2nd time around on the exam.

Even though there is no age requirements, you still have to pass the medical portion of the hiring process.

The only thing I can't believe he asking about Uniforms. There is no hiring freeze when it comes to Bus Operators , Conductors or Train Operator you just have to wait for your number to be called.
