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!!

As I'm correcting this 12 hours later based on other posts, you might still be able to get hired. I'm not 100% sure though.

 

What's good though is that this is a civil service examination. Therefore, when the time comes, you can request thru DCAS to have your name restored to the list. When the time comes, your list # will stay the same, which should give you preference, depending on the situation at that time, respectively.

Your abstract has to be clean, whether you were at fault or not. Therefore, you will not be able to proceed until February of 2019, once the accident comes off.

So pretty much I'll have to wait another 2 yrs. my list number is 44xx. So they'll put my number on hold? Will I be guaranteed a position once the accident is off my abstract?

U can get hired with an accident on your record. If you have too many then no. One fender bender shouldn't be an issue. A buddy of mine on the job from my class had 2 accidents on his abstract, one in his car and one with a cdl vehicle form his previous job, and he was hired.

Your abstract doesn't need to be clean, I found out you can have 4 points or less, also, an accident doesn't disqualify you either. Please be cautious regarding the responses you are reading, trust but verify. One thing is no pending violations or open parking tickets. Some people I found out on this forum do work for MTA and some do not, only you are in control of your destiny, so buckle up, stop on the red lights and no speeding. Practice save driving skills until you are called. When you get your call to 180 Livingston St, they will tell what needs to be done.

To yo0910, It is an open competitive exam, as you go through the process and your paper work is in order then you have to pass training, if your on hold or place yourself on hold, you can comeback at a later date and continue the process. This doesn't mean a position will be held for you, if they are not hiring at the later time you would have to wait until they are. As long as the list number date doesn't not expired. You can call DCAS to see what number from your exam they are calling and last number hired, it is usually updated on Sunday, this has been my experience, if I explained any incorrect info, I welcome other positive knowledgeable people to correct me, we are all in this together , thanks

Starting class on March 20th. Since I'm from State Island, my preference is  Castleton or any other Depot in Staten Island. If none of those available, what are the other depots in Brooklyn closer to Staten Island?

From the posts here, I gather that the training is always at a depot in the Bronx. What I meant was after training...

Wow...the requirements have been "loosened" since I went through the process in 2014...thanks for the heads up!

First, well said. To be a little more specific, they update it on Sunday evenings, after 4/5 PM(ish). Here's the phone #: 212-669-1357. Select option 2, followed by your 9-digit Social Security #, then follow the prompts.
