B/O 4600 Hiring Process

+Young+

Attention Folks:

For those of you who are not aware, as per the Active Civil Service List page of the NYC Open Data website, this list has been extended until January 6th, 2021. For those of you who want to restore your name to the list, click here for instructions on how to do so via e-mail. If you wish to do this in person, click here for those instructions.

For those who will be reporting to Livingston Street in the immediate future, click here for the pre-employment packet and click here or for extra pages of the CPD-B booklet (if you need them) for final processing.

For those of you who are still waiting, you folks might want to check out this and this YouTube video. In addition, if you need help getting your Class B CLP (Commercial Learner's Permit), I would encourage you to check out cristcdl.com Remember, the multiple-choice tests you need to take and pass, at minimum, are General Knowledge, Air Brakes and Passenger Endorsement.

Good luck and remember to check those mirrors every three to five seconds!!

I'm sorry for the class before.

 

The class of 9/19 got to pick from 4 depots to be assigned, no Staten Island.

Now some are just doing line training and we are waiting for DMV road test next week.

Congrats again!

 

Week 2 of line training is done out in SI. Two depots down, one more to go.

That's insane that you guys are being bounced around depots.

 

Our class got split between Manhattanville, Mother Clara, Quilt and Ulmer Park. The MTA Bus people went to Spring Creek.

It is a bit insane but it is what it is. The hardest commute for me thus far has been Charleston. Castleton, Yukon and Meredith are much more closer and easier to do. Hopefully when the system pick comes around, I can go back to Castleton.

What depot you want in Brooklyn Seven?

Doesn't matter tbh but I would prefer something closer to Queens... ENY, Grand Av, Fresh Pond, etc.

Staten Island lines are a lot better than the rest of the city. Some lines get real dead at night. An you move up a lot quicker than Brooklyn or manhattan. I know guys that have only been on the job for a year and half and got sun mon off

Cool. I got called in for a drug test/pre-employment on Tuesday and it was a very small group. My list number is less than 250 (I reinstated).  I await the e-mail to come on in for medical.

What should I do if I want them to come back to my list number when I am ready?

 

Simply disregard the letter.

 

I had to decline the first time.

When you are ready to reinstate call 1 212-699-1357 Option 2, listen to the instructions for renewal, mail a letter requesting reinstatement to the address mentioned in the phone message. Wait for letter in the mail from DCAS (you'll get this up to one week later) confirming your name has been reinstated..

 

This will take between 1-2 months for the MTA to send you another letter to come into pre-employment/drug test.

 

You will have two more chances to reinstate if for whatever reason you decline again or have some issue.

Cool, I believe I have copies of that form from another city job that I had to reinstate myself on. It was blank when they faxed it to me so I made copies for future use.

I made a few clarifications on my post in case anyone else has the same question. I will amplify to anyone that you have to send letter.

 

I tried the fax option and it didn't work for me.

 

In any event, you can expect a 1-2 month wait once you get that confirmation letter from DCAS.

I happen to be able use the fax option and it worked for me. I just want to reinstate after I complete my CDL. I'll be more prepared by then. I would hand deliver the form to DCAS and they confirm it on the spot.
