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!!

What a day today. Enjoying the empty buses as I do my trips. Good luck to everyone this week trying to qualify. Put your A+ game and execute what you've been thought. Be a Operator not a driver and Good luck. Hopefully I'll see some of you if you pick in Flatbush

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?

The Brooklyn depots that are closest to Staten Island are Jackie Gleason and Ulmer Park. Gleason is in Sunset Park, which is not far at all to the bridge, while Ulmer Park is in Bensonhurst. I started at Jackie Gleason and was there for 4-5 months, I then transferred to Fresh Pond and was there for one month before my transfer to Queens finally came thru. Gleason was a great depot, and most of their routes are good. I left due to it being too far from where I live, which is in Queens. If you have any questions about the depots feel free to private message me.

Went to Pre-Employment yesterday at 180 Livingston. Drug Screen completed as well. Saw a lot of people there for Bus Operator and about 6 or 7 guys there going from Bus Operator to Dispatcher. They were sitting all together on the left side. If any of those guys are on this Forum CONGRATS.

 

I got there at 7:30am and was finished around 12noon. Wasn't a bad wait as they were kinda crowded and it was a Snow Day yesterday. I was told to wait for an email that I should receive within 3 - 90 days. I have the 21-Pager and filling it out now.

 

Whats the next step people? I'm ready as I already have my CDL Class B License too.

You might get an email on Thursday for medical on Friday. Just be prepared. If you pass medical, you'll be in the class with me on March 20th. Keep us posted.
