Hi All, I just want to say how helpful you have all been in the process. I am not the applicant, that was my boyfriend. But I am not one to just sit around and wait for news, so I was constantly in the internet looking for any answers and I stumbled upon this forum. My boyfriend originally got a pre-employment letter back September 2017, he went in September 8th and the wait began after his drug test. The numbers didn’t match up so we just waited and waited in hopes. Nothing. We got his second pre-employment letter January 19th, and we thought they messed up that he was getting the same letter and paper work.  So I took to the internet and found you, wish I had found you before that! So he was invited to go in on January 29th. The numbers when you call were finally high enough we thought good things were coming! And turns out we were right, he got his email today for the medical on February 6th! Class starts on February 26th. But thank you all for your questions and answers, I would have gone insane from the 19th till now without all these answers to our questions. His Uncle just retired from the MTA and we tried to use him for info on the whole process but he wasn’t much help! Then again he did this 35+ years ago! Can’t blame him! Much appreciated for all the insight! Good luck to all and let’s hope his medical goes well! His list number was in the 23xx’s.

I’m in the early 2600s hoping I get called again. If I get that booklet to fill out again, should I keep off the books work off the list of employment?

Since the pre-employment paperwork is valid for 90 calendar days, you will have to fill out the booklet again, in which you should list all of your on-the-books jobs and not your 'off-the-books' jobs. In lieu, just mention how you were financially supported during that time (spouse, friend, savings, etc.)

As a reminder, my list number is in the 2800's.

Just want to let everyone know his experience for the medical today. He arrived around 7:20 due to train delays, waited until about 9:45 to do the hearing test, urine test and weight around 10:15. He then did blood pressure and ekg at 10:45. Eye test around 11. Saw doctor around 2pm. More paperwork, then fingerprints around 3:15, received all his new employee manuals and books at 3:35. Don’t know if this is the usual but can give you a semi idea of the day. Good luck to everyone!! I just know I can’t wait to start reading the books he has now, I like reading employee handbooks and such.

I got into the February 26 class also. Does anyone know if there is parking at the training facility? Would much rather drive and cut my commute in half.

I passed everything. Finished my paperwork and the process after going back today. I had to go back today to finish because in one of the packets we had to fill out they ask if you have been arrested and ask you about it so I filled it out telling about a disorderly conduct arrest I had a few years ago and when I handed it in they asked me for the original certificate of disposition and I only had a copy. The court where I got arrested is some little rinky dink bs court upstate and they wouldn't mail it to me and MTA wouldn't accept it if it was emailed or faxed so I had to drive five hours through that ice storm last night to get it when they opened this morning and then drive back to Brooklyn to finish the paperwork. I got back to 180 Livingston street at like 1pm today. Such a pain in the ass over something so trivial.  But atleast its over and I'm hired and ready to go. I'll see you at orientation on the 26th.

 

With the Ishihara test, I couldn't see the numbers in the view finder thing so instead they had me look at big traffic light/ tunnel signal thing that was in the same room and I had to identify red, blue, orange, and green. I was able to do that easily so I passed.

No more parking in  the parking lot school without  a MTA parking permit. U can try your luck around the school or anywhere nearby.

they seem to be caught up from when they fell behind and were calling everyone down too early and turning people back. I think it should move quickly for you now. they had me come down for the 2nd time to do the preemployment on the 29th and they called me to come back for medical + final processing like 6 days later. hopefully it works out quickly for you guys.

Low 2800's...to be a little more specific, my list number is in between 2800 & 2850.

Hope this helps.

Sorry if this has been asked, does anyone know if dark brown boots are allowed? I know they issue boots but he just got new ones that he has and are a lot more comfortable than the ones that are issued. And they said he doesn’t have to take them but no one was sure at Livingston if brown were allowed.

Any color is allowed as long as they are approved by safety.

Got a letter in the mail with weekend, my list number is in the 2880’s. Paper work said to come down on February 27th. Looks like I’ll be passing on this as it’s over a 50% cut in pay.
