There is no fee online because you pay the fee the day of your exam. I kinda like it this way; since the first step is basically a lottery (like the B/O exams), you are not suckered in to paying the $54 if they don't call your list number for the exam. From the NOE:

 

Candidates who are scheduled for the multiple-choice test will be required to pay a $54.00 examination fee

on the date of the test. The examination fee must be paid in the form of a money order.

I applied and I did not get an email confirmation either. I checked the spam & trash folders.

I'm not sure if we're supposed to get one.

The site does say I've applied though.

Do these conductors ever get promoted to Engineer? How do they usually get their engineers? I applied for this position even though Im already on the 8098 T/O list.

Your not going to get an Email from the system. The email is just used just in case you forget your password/user ID. Once you finish applying, it should tell you that you have successfully applied. (With an option to print your confirmation)

 

Just so everyone knows this position is not civil service .

 

 

I'm curious if you are allowed to transfer to NYCTA via Open Competitive exam. Just like switching from OA to TA.

I would believe so...but if u mean like how current mta employees take the promo tests and leave out of theur current position I doubt it. It would most likely be treated as if you didnt work for the MTA, but with all that "You will not be..." in the NOE even if we were to get the position in a lot of ways we wouldnt be...no scratch that the NOE actually says we wont be.

Engineers are sourced from conductors only. Only one engineer that I knew there came straight as engineer without having been a C/R first but he had previous operating experience.

Transfer? No but you can apply for any NYCT exam just like joe public and will be treated as such.

Those Passbooks study guides more than likely won't help at all because that was written for the NYC Subway conductor's exam (SIR is a completely different operation), and even for the NYCT exam it didn't help much.

Don't bother buying any exam books for any conductors exams. They're useless. It's all reading comprehension and basic math. Read the questions carefully, take your time and you'll be fine.

Could you explain to me the differences between a civil service transit job versus a non-civil service transit job as far as hiring practices and retirement policies are concerned?

It's not civil service. They can fire you like any other private sector employer.

I see that this exam has been rescheduled to February 4, 2013. Have they chosen who will be allowed to take the exam yet? How and when will you know if you won the lottery for taking the exam?

Has anyone received their randomly generated list number? It says they were supposed to go out 6 weeks after the application deadline.
