LIRR CAM Position....Layoffs?

Recommended Posts

Like I said before do your work and be on time. You do that while probation you don't have to worry about that. People get lay off because they chose to . You have to be a real screw up to get fired from the MTA period.

I think he means furlough as opposed to fire.

 

To the OP, you may want to consider to sticking to one thread regarding CAMs. This makes it a little easier than starting a new thread for each question.

I don't work for the LIRR, but ANY job can have layoffs. Having seniority means you less likely to get laid off but it could happen.

I haven't seen or heard nothing about Cams being furloughed. But I can't say never with the leaders in DC screwing up it could have a huge trickle down effect to us since we are government workers. But let's hope they get their act together.

I think its the same. But we get more overtime and we have better options in where we want to work as far as yards ,times and shifts. In some rare instances you could even be a car repairmen helper in the shop or assisting a car inspector or engineer when help is needed in the yard.

Also not all Cam jobs are not in the yard. You also can own a cam job working station where you do a quick pick up when trains come into the station like Atlantic Terminal Brooklyn, Penn Station , Babylon and some cases Jamaica.

@lirr154 thanks for all helping me get a better understanding because it was mentioned on the interview but they didn't bring up salary so neither did i,i guess if it was up to me i would rather be a cam it seems more interesting I'm just praying i get in whether its as a cam or oilers

As LIRR explained the CAM position, Ill just add, just come to work and clean your trains and nobody will have anything to say to you. My Partner went bye bye over the summer because of lateness while on probation. Its a good job and im heading to my 5th Yard tomorrow. I own a job (again) hopefully I wont get bumped again. Next time it comes up on the MTA Site, definitely apply for it. Good Luck!
