hey guys quick question..... i have suffered from asthma in the past....rare (as in maybe 1-2 a year i may need to use my pump )usually brought on from severe allergies.... is that something i should mention upon medical or will that affect my ability to secure position? 

 

im not worried about it as its not really prevalent but will the MTA use that against me?

Of it' not severe maybe you should leave it out. My uncle is a bus driver and he said that they are going extremely hard on people to be fit. With than being said as long as your willing and able and your fit you should be fine. Good luck and don't stress it out. When you do med just let them know of they ask...bring documentation showing your taking care of it already and you have it under control.

The drug tests are valid for 30 calendar days. Therefore, did it expire? If so, then yes. If not, then no.

went yesterday to do the preemployment paperwork and drug test again since the originals expired. they said 3-90 days but I'm assuming it'll be fairly quick this time and not 4 months

does anyone know for sure if not being able to pass the ishihara colorblind test is a deal breaker and disqualifies you from being a track worker?

me too. I've always failed those. I know thats the test they give during the medical exam tho. idk if it disqualifies though

 

can anyone thats taken the medical give exactly what that part entails? is it from the book or is it looking through one of those viewfinder machines? and anyone know is it the same slides every time? will the next couple of people who take the test tell me what numbers they saw? ill pay haha

You will be looking through a viewfinder machine. It is not the same slide every time.

If you feel that you're going to fail it, get a note from your physician saying that you're not color blind. I don't know about track workers, but this is what's done for Bus Operators:

They have you make out the different numbers. The candidate won't be able to do so, resulting in a "medical hold." Once the candidate comes back with a letter from a physician stating that the candidate is not color blind, they have the candidate perform the test a second time. If the candidate is unsuccessful, they bring him/her into another room with a traffic signal. Providing the candidate can distinguish green from yellow from red, the candidate passes with the exception that the candidate has to come back every year since there is a medical condition.

I'm assuming they do something similar for Track Workers, however I'm not 100% exactly sure as far as that they do.
