Yes, I have the 1-in-3 letter. I have all my pertinent documentation. I even documented the actual dates of when I did all that I have done. I'm going to now look for the PM you state you sent.

Yes, I have the 1-in-3 letter... I have that and all other documentation. Where do I go in this site to find that PM you sent? I'm looking everywhere in this site, but can't find it.

& sorry brother Dorrell for not responding to your understanding of my situation, but yeah, it wasn't nor is it fair in any way, what they did to me. At my previous job I was an Award winner ( I'm not saying it to brag, but there are people that have been with the Department 20 years and above, who have never gotten one, meaning, I did my job and I did it well) who showed up to work everyday at least an hour before my start time. I was punctual, respectful to all. Supervision, top brass, my coworkers, as well as the inmates. Which is why I won the award in the first place, cuz the inmates reciprocated the respect that I had given them. I thought I was also respected by the department, but it's obvious that i wasn't, for we can see what has transpired. All I want is to be working again Within the job that I know I would like, that I qualify for. Even if they would allow me to make a lateral move within the city, in terms of a job, but they have taken that opportunity away from me with that 3-in-1 letter.

Were there any issues with your prior employment? Reason why I ask is because I've never heard of transit sending out any letters like that unless there are license are ticket issues. And if so that could be resolved depending on the seriousness of it.

I have and had a clean license for years. I have a  Class B CDL that I've had over 14 years with no parking tickets. I worked for the city and I don't get tickets, and if I ever did I would pay it then and there. I don't have any moving violations on my license, no accidents and I also drove a bus for the Department full of inmates. It was a probationary, political set of reasons that they give to clear their playing field of anyone. They were very unfair and had no compassion in me losing both my parents in one year's time. And they want to talk " we Bleed Blue." Very false statement...

Curious, what would cause someone who is otherwise qualified,  to not get the job? Granted this is a Bus Operator position, i did not think there would be much requirements besides a CDL, clean drivers license and not having any felonies on your name.

Though I was on that very list, and going through the hiring process ( Completed employment packet, urine drug test), they the MTA/City sent me a 4.7.1 letter that states, " You were considered, but not selected " ruining my chances for the job. It also Stated that, " I can only be recertified by this agency upon this agencies request ." This is really messed up...

As an interesting FYI, apparently Transit is not the only one who "abuses" the 1-in-3 rule...click here for an interesting article which will probably be of interest, respectively.

As a result of recently restoring my name to the list, with a list number in the 1600's, I got a letter in the mail today inviting me down to Livingston Street on February 21st to begin the pre-employment process. The problem is that, on that particular day, I'm working from 3 PM to either 1 or 2 AM. Therefore, I plan on calling them on Tuesday and I'll see what they say about going in the following week.

Update:

So I made it down yesterday. At about 11:30 AM, I get called up to the front counter in order for the HR Dept. to go over my paperwork. When they go over my paperwork, they tell me that the laboratory to take the drug test is backed up and I would have to come back in 90 minutes to get the drug-test transmittal form. Since I was anxious to go to work, they gave me another paper and I asked if I can come back on Monday at 7:30 AM and they said "yes".

Again, my list number is in the 1600's and I restored my name back to this list, before the list expires this January.

Wow cool, but further procrastination... having to wait more time... but it sounds  a bit positive. Good luck.

Thanks! The procrastination was on my end, I had a choice of either calling out sick (which I didn't want to do) or waiting around, therefore...

Sounds like a good choice. All I was saying is that you waited so long for this opportunity to return that i'm sure you wouldn't want it pass you by... But you know best.

HI YOUNG, MIND IF I ASK YOU HOW YOU RESTORED YOUR NAME TO THE LIST?  BECAUSE I CALLED THE 347-643-7413; AND THEY TOLD ME TO CALL CITY WIDE ADMINISTRATIVE SERVICE?

Instead of physically doing down there, you can try to email them using the information which is in this post.

Hope this helps.

So the "unthinkable" happened today, which I'm still at complete shock over:

I arrive upstairs shortly after 7 AM and get a ticket number of A103. At around 10:45 AM, myself and a bunch of "potential" station agents got called into a small room on the right side. The HR person states that, in order to be fair, he would be calling people by their ticket numbers in numerical order based on who was in the room. I kept track and he called ticket # 107, followed by 112, 117, 121, 122, 132, 135, 136 & 137. Once the room only had four people left, the HR person glanced at my ticket number. He said that it was an "honest mistake" which I personally found to be bu**sh**, especially with the "1-in-3" letter that I got for the Track Worker position, plus this, this & this article. Fortunately I was able to take my paperwork with me so I have a record that I was there, both this past Thursday and earlier today, while they do not!! Nice, right?

Therefore, my next step is to type a letter to President Byford and Cuomo about what happened. Afterwards, I plan on restoring my name to the list again, but not in the immediate future. As a result, although I've helped a huge number of you, if I'm quiet or inactive for a long period of time, you'll know why...

To restore your name to the list follow the instructions in this post. Should be self-explanatory. If you still need help, I can put together a "sample" e-mail for you.

First, please be careful with the CAPITAL LETTERS as per the guidelines of the website under "Forum Etiquette." It would be easier for all of us to read your posts if you do not use CAPITAL LETTERS like you did.

Second, to restore my name to the list, I also had to go through DCAS (aka Citywide Administrative Services). Once you email them, which I would recommend you do ASAP, you will receive something in the mail shortly after confirming that your name has been restored to the list.

Third, keep an eye out on this website by either typing your last name or "04600" in the search box on the top right. When the HR office requests a list of names from DCAS, the webpage will be updated a few days later. Shortly after you'll get a letter in the mail inviting you to report for pre-employment processing.

Wow.... I can't believe they did that to you. If i were u while sitting there & seeing that they are calling numbers above yours i wldve gotten up aftr hearing just 2 or 3 numbers later, not like 7 or 8 as i did. Im sorry to hear that. That sounds exactly like my luck. You at least are working where as i'm trying to get re-employed. Try to stay strong and yes, do contact those individuals u stated u wld. Good luck buddy & keep strong.

Thank you so much Young for your answer,  when I call the DCAS number they tell me that my name has being marked as not qualified for certification from this list , is it because I wasn’t ready at that time?
