Occupation Titles

Recommended Posts

There should be a more descriptive title for MTA employees on this site. Train Conductor could mean LIRR, Amtrak, etc. Train Conductor is just like Member for a title.

Maybe it was done like this on purpose... Some folks may not want all of their beeswax out there... Just saying...

 

 

By now, I think most of them have made it known what division of the MTA they work for. It's just the way they programmed the software.

IIRC that's right, but still. I don't think it's that important either way.

So?

 

Nobody's going to be confused if a person with the title of 'Train Operator' posts in a bus forum.

'Train Operator" posting in the bus forum has less significance than "Bus operator" posting in the bus forum.

Based on the work I did for the US government, EVERYTHING was DETAILS.

I'm not seeing what you're saying.

 

For the most part, we can figure out where the B/Os are from. At one point or another, most B/Os & T/Os have mentioned that they work for NYCT, MTAB, NJT, etc, and a lot have mentioned which depot they work out of or which routes they've operated.

It doesn't need to be anymore specific than it is really. On the old forum platform, yes we did have logos for each agency that people work for.

 

However, seeing that 90% of our transit personnel work for MTA, it's not really needed. With the exception of Bus Operator (because we have lots from different agencies), it's pretty self explanatory who they all work for.

Now I can better explain the source of my confusion. There's a logo for the bus depots but no logo for subway. A lot of people talk about the subway but there's no way to know who works for the (MTA).

 

Again, there's nothing apparent about the titles to somebody who is new to the forum. Most of the time, I don't even pay attention to the occupation because it's the information that's important, not the occupation. But when there's contradictory information, how am I supposed to know who works for the (MTA).

 

Are (MTA) employees right 100% of the time? I'm sure it's close to 100%, but I don't believe it's 100%.

 

It would help if this forum had a glossary.

Again, you know who works for the MTA because all Train Conductors, all Train Operators, Train Service Supervisors, and most all Bus Operators work for the MTA.

 

Most all new members know that immediately.

 

What exactly do you think this glossary should have in it?

A MTA conductor can work for the LIRR, Metro North, and SIRT. Train conductor is not restricted to the subway.

Look into your crystal ball and see if you're going to get a refund on Metrocard.

LOL... I did... It's called my account and the credit was there this morning. :lol: All of that hard work means a nice lunch for me today... Since we're talking about occupation titles, mine should be Asset Recovery Specialist. :lol:

There are software limitations that weren't present with the old platform that are present on this one but I am looking into this.
