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!!

6:50 AM or 6:58 AM is too late...

 

What if something goes wrong?

 

7:00 AM does not mean the parking lot, 7:00 AM means you are seated at your seat on the 2nd Floor of Zerega.

 

 

 

You want to aim to be at Zerega

I totally agree with 161Newyork. They have a Zero tolerance for lateness at Zerega especially if you are trying to get the Job. Best suggestion is to try your best to leave home even earlier than you expected.

How often to they update the automated info when u call? I've called several times in the past 2 weeks and it says the same number 1900 or somewhere in there for last eligible hire but I've seen people in the low 3000 get called on here.

Parking is good at zerega if you leave early, I traveled from Bensonhurst, left house 415am, arrived Zerega 5am, trip is about 35-45 min in morning. Parking out front. sounds crazy but, I heard people were refused entre after 7am, I have personally seen one person written up on day 12, he told me that because his dad was a B/O was only reason he wasn't fired on the spot. Written up for lateness, I drove belt to vanwyck to Whitestone bridge to 95n. Slam dunk for just one day. Good luck to day 0 crew.

I saw those queens college buses. I was saying to myself I wonder if that is youngnycsubwayfan lol.

It is...I'm usually on the PM shift, so I start driving those buses at around 3 PM in the afternoon until the Shuttle concludes @ 11 PM, respectively. By the way, the company is still hiring drivers, so if you or if anyone else is interested, just click here.

 

Parking situation at zerega is a go? Or no-go? Is there parking pretty close to the facility if not on site?

 

Coming from BKLYN and mass transit is 2 hrs but driving is 1:15 tops..

Just keep in mind that there is a School Bus company right across the street...

They usually update it on the evening of the first Sunday of every month. From my experience, it's safe to call after 5 PM.

College Point and LGA are MTA Bus though and not NYCT. I believe CP and LGA have the same unions if Im not mistaken it's not twu 100, I think it's awu 1179. I could be wrong dont quote me on that. Good luck to the April 3rd class. Hopefully I'll get into the April 17th or the next class.

I know this been answered before, however in your experience how long after the drug test do they send you an email/text? What's the shortest to longest period of time? I know they say 3 to 90 days has anyone actually had to wait the full 90 days? Thanks for the help

If I called ms. Chestnut, would she say what list number they are up to? Since the automated number isn't reflecting what everyone is saying they are up to lol

automated system is delayed, don't rely on it...people's posts in here are a great measure. You can call her and ask if you want.

What does the being on certification mean vs not on.

Outstanding certification means that DCAS has sent your name to the MTA to be called. At that point i would keep an eye out on the mail for a pre-employment letter. If your NOT on a outstanding certification that means your name hasn't been reached yet to be sent to the MTA for pre-employment.
