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!!

You likely should have been called already.

On Staten Island, the last person in my depot came off this exam and their list number is 430X.  (You should shorten your list number to be semi-anonymous).

On Monday, you should call MTA HR at 1 347-643-8229/30/31 for further instructions. 

Before that, you should call DCAS 1 212-699-1357 Option 2 and see what the automated line says about your status.

Good Luck

The real difference is work location, OA operators may only work in OA depots, while TA operators can work in TA and OA depots, none can work in MTA Bus Company depots. If you are OK with working in OA depots for your career, then you can select OA, if you want flexibility to work in different TA/OA depots, Staten Island or specific Queens division depots, then select TA. The pay is the same and the pensions appear to be somewhat similar.

 

Read this thread for more information on OA vs TA, as said trife86, "This topic has been beaten to death on this site":

Just to add on to what 161 said. If your TA and take or if you have taken the conductor or Train Operator exam and get called(been TA) if it don' t work out then you can go  back to B/O(within a 1 year) TA you get your time where was coming from OA into a TA title you would have to start over (as far as how long you would have to work) Only thing when working in a other position ewhen your already TA you will lose seniority.

That can’t be accurate about your list # and score because I scored a 93% and my list # 3,7XX and I’m waiting as well. I would’ve been in the June 2017 class also.

OA can work at a TA depot except for non TWU unions such as Queens, and Staten Island depots. Brooklyn would be the only TA depots options since both Manhattan and Bronx are OA divisions

Well guys, I did it. Finally off probation. Started as OA 2/6/17 in Ulmer Park , became TA in July. Then transferred to Staten Island in August. Got extended two days because I had called out for two days straight (was in major back pain, all about posture driving these buses!)

Just stick to what Zerega had taught us, take your time and you’ll fly through the year. Can’t believe it’s already been a year actually. Good luck everyone.

Thanks for the info, I guess I'll go with the first whose hiring. As far as location I live in the bx, so having access to the other boros wouldn't matter to me.  Just have to wait another 10 months...

Does anyone know the difference between Outstanding certification vs Not on Outstanding certification (Automated msg from DCAS)?

Outstanding Certification means that the HR office of NYC Transit has your information, and as soon as there are vacancies available, they will send you a letter inviting you down to their facility located at 180 Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn to begin the employment process.

Not on Outstanding Certification means that the HR office does not have your information, and you won't be receiving a letter in the foreseeable future.
