@cGeorge, how big are the classes for assistant conductors, generally? I definitely want to apply for that since I already live on Long Island.

24 per class

open house, 3 tests, cognitive, vocabulary and simple math. if you don't pass the cognitive you go home. if you do, they let you take the vocabulary and then the math, then an interview with HR (all on the same day). cognitive is a speed and accuracy test. no need to study. good luck!

Is there a specific amount of questions asked, is there enough time to answer the questions, what are some sample questions they might ask?  I tried google but it just give me what are cognitive questions, but no examples.  What about vocab how is that?  Math you said its easy, is calculator permitted or its not calculator type questions?  thanks for the help

Hey Peroport, how long did it take to get S&D study material after the cognitive and background part. I passed my cognitive back in the middle of march and completed my background about a week later and still havent heard anything.

From the time i created my Sterling account to when HR sent me the email for the S&D overview was about 2 weeks. I'm not sure if everyone was the same. Try shooting HR an email regarding the next step.

How was the signals and definitions test.. is it multiple choice or do you have to write entire definitions ? Good luck on the interview ; let us know when you get the call

Signals and definitions test, signals test is all 128 signals, just the aspect. You must not get one wrong! Definitions test is 20 definitions and 20 indications of signals. Verbatim! No multiple choice

Hey Guys!!!! I went to the orientation on March 14th, passed everything. They sent me the link for the background check. I completed everything and still haven't heard anything back. Is there anybody else from the March 14th class still waiting to hear back? How long does the beginning process usually take?

Took me almost 5 months. They couldn't get in touch with a couple of my previous employers which I had to reach out to them so they could verify my employment. I followed up with lirr hr to see how things were going and to ask if there was anything I could do on my part to help the process
