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!!

Hello. I have number 134 on the list. I don't have my CDL permit but was thinking about trying to get it at some point.Based on what I have read on here I'm assuming I have to have it before I get called? Is there a study guide that any of you have used for the test?

Study the DMV C manual and, also there are some free websites that have practice exams for the CDL which is a good way to study and understand.

Yes, you must have the cdl permit with passenger and air brakes endorsements. There are sites online that give you offer free practice tests, as well as some sites that charge a small fee but have good success rates.

A friend of mine is on the bus operator exam 4600 list, however he does not really post on forums such as this. I have a question in his behalf. He claimed bankruptcy last year and has terrible credit now. Will this have any effect on getting appointed to the bus operator position?

Cool thanks nycgamer18. Does anyone have any educated guess as to when they will start calling the list?

Well from the way it looks, they are still on the previous exam which they are still calling people off from. I would say late this year is when they could be sending out letters to come downtown. But its all up in the air for now. Someone will who has a low list number will let us know when they get the letter. We are all in the waiting game now.

Hey guys. I was on the mta employment website applying for thw lirr assistant conductor job. I went into the my account page to look at the exams I had applied for in the past. I clicked the link for this one (bus 4600) and some message box pops up saying. Referral Source and SubSource must be answered prior to submitting an application (21250.4). I have already taken that test and received my list number lol. Does anyone know what that message means? It also popped up when I hit the link for the conductor 6601 which I had applied for back in September.

I had applied to take the conductor exam 6601. Did anyone on here apply for that test as well and did anyone hear when the test will be?

I applied for that exam as well & according to the mta website, this exam will be given on April 9, 2016

First, if you click here, there is another thread dedicated to the Conductor 6601 Exam. Next, as per this webpage, as a result of the high volume of applicants, there will be multiple exam dates - April 9th, 10th, 23rd, 24th, May 7th, 8th, 21st and 22nd.

 

Finally, although you members are fairly new, there is a section on the Rules page about Posting in the Relevant Forum.

 

Thanks.

Hey nycsubwayfan thanks for the heads up on the conductor info. My apologies for posting that on this thread. Hey nycsubwayfan you seem educated on this kind of stuff.... I have an odd question. It's probably nothing. When you go on the mta employment website and click on the link that says my activities, it shows all the positions that you applied for with mta. If you click this job the bus operator one, a pop up message appears saying referral source and SubSource must be answered prior to submitting an application. (21250,4). Do you have any clue what that means?

Your apology is accepted. Please try not to make the same mistake again.

 

As far as your question about the MTA employment website, let me elaborate as far as what happened to me:

 

With the old software before their upgrade, I had two accounts - one for the civil service job postings, like this, and one for the job postings, like Staff Analyst, which require a college degree and some relevant experience, since I do have a graduate degree. The reason why I use the past tense (had) is because I am now locked out of both of these accounts. To this date, I don't know if the technical error is either my fault or their fault.

 

Because of this error, I have been in touch with someone from the Technology Dept. at the MTA Business Service Center regarding this. Therefore, as far as the answer to your question is concerned, in my opinion, just take a good guess and go with it. As you can already tell, I'm not fond of their newest on-line software....

Lol. My brother had a problem signing into his mta account to apply for the conductor exam a few months back. Wound up just being a password issue. Hopefully you don't need access to the mta page to get appointed. That would make me pull my hair out lol
