Conductor vision requirements

Recommended Posts

Is there a certain line for conductors and engineers ? Do you need to have 20/20 or is there any leeway ? I know the color test is big, which I am good there, but I am about 20/25 in both eyes with correction. Any help is appreciated.

I think there is a little leeway.  I want to say one of my eyes was 20/30 (corrected) at my last periodical exam and I passed

You get put out of service until the condition is corrected.

 

This is the procedure for Metro North.  I don't know why my title under my avatar changed to Transit Worker.

Any idea if that class is all set, or do they still need to fill it ? I passed the conductor test that was given in the beginning of January, I am also going through the hiring process for two other jobs, and am trying to weigh my options.

I don't know.  There are talks of six classes starting in 2013, March being the second one. 

 

While it's nice to weigh job options I wouldn't blow one off when there's no guarantee in getting the others.

 

Have you been called for an interview?

I received notice that I had passed about two weeks ago, and that they were doing the background check. I know it takes a little time. Without going too into detail, I have already gone through a medical for another job, and they said they will give the official offer in about two weeks. I don't want to miss out on a chance at becoming a conductor. I already work for metro north, and I am in a spot with lots of ot, so I'm a little torn on which way to go.
