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 was orginally supposed to report last year but had to restore name on list. Im list #2***. I went for drug test on august 15th, tommorow aug 23 i go in for medical. I get fingerprinted tommorow as well or come back for that?

I hope you had no problem with medical. Mind I ask when you restored your name to the list? The reason why I'm asking is because I plan on doing the same thing in about 5 months, however I don't want to do it too early since I have to wait until February 24th, 2019 or later to try again...

I restored my name last month mid July and was called for pre employment process a month later. Took my drug test Aug 15, then was emailed just 5 days after to come in for medical in 3 days which was today Aug 23rd. Passed my medical and now i start my training at Zerega Ave on Tuesday Sept 4th.

Well im still waiting for medical , i did drug test on aug 14 th , and nothing tet my list number is 7***

The reason why is because they go by list number, and for those who are restoring their name to the list, their list number stays the same. Therefore, since my list number is in the 1600's and @JG116's list number is in the 2000's, we would get first priority over those whose list numbers are in the late 6000's and early 7000's respectively.

Just have patience and you'll be called - you just need some patience. That's all.

Hey guys When you get hired and you go to your new depot sometimes you have the option of picking an 8 hour, 10 hour or 12 hour route. Not really sure what this means. Do you get more hours a week? Do you a get one more day off for working longer hours.  Im probably way off lol but can anyone fill me in on advantages & disadvantages. Thank you

8, 10, 12 days as in physical time spent or as in being paid? You get 2 days off regardless of what you pick.

Two runs can pay the same but do completely different amounts of work, have different meal times, etc. For example, the typical run on the S79 does 3 round trips, anywhere between 30 min - 1 hr meal and pays 8 hours. There's one that only does 2 rounds with a 2 hour meal and still pays 8 hours. Less work, more meal time, same pay. 

When you're at the depot looking over the work to pick from, you'll understand what I mean. Some runs never get picked because you spend all day in the seat, you don't get any layover time, the work is imbalanced throughout the day (i.e. 1 round, meal, 3 rounds, etc.)

From my experience, I usually call the first Sunday of the month. However, as far as the system "hanging up" on you, it has happened to me too. I don't think it's being "updated" since I would call again Monday morning, and, for most of the lists that I'm on, the information would stay the same.

As far as what list number they are up to, between DCAS and this forum, click here.

(Long story short: According to DCAS, they're up to the 6700's, but according to this thread/topic, they're up to the 7100's.)

Because you get corrupted with having more than a 80 hour paycheck and then you don't ever go back. :P

Otherwise, I would be all on that.
