LIRR locomotive Engineer Trainee job

Recommended Posts

Iwetoddit, 

Next class meaning open house or phase 1? Yea, it’s going to take some time. Marino did say at my open house, it could be a whole year process, but she thinks it’ll be less. Either way when you’re finally in it’ll be so worth it. Thanks! 

How was the panel btw? I did some research on panel interviews just to get an idea.

Next phase 1 class.

 

Its standard questions about the job.  And they give some scenarios that could happen.  I had three of them and they were very nice, I was comfortable.

@Iwetoddit good stuff brother,  one of the hardest parts of this whole process is waiting patiently lol. I was told the same thing about the next phase one class beginning sometime in the end of August to  somewhere in September. Hopefully I will see you in phase one soon. By the way keep reviewing all definitions, signals and indications as if they are going to call you tomorrow,  the worst thing that can happen is to forget all that information we worked so hard to learn....keep me posted and I'll do the same.....

@Iwetodditok cool. Once you pass phase 1 it’s down the homestretch. 

Yea, interviews I’m pretty comfortable with. It’s even better when the interviewer is nice. It’s the waiting I have a hard time dealing with. Thanks man! Good luck

I was also looking to see if any one from 6/3 open house was contacted. Do you know if everyone who passed the open house test and was interviewed will be invited to the S&D overview or do they use a selection process from that pool of candidates. Also, I was curious , did you or anyone you know write a thank you or follow up email to the person you interviewed with? I am just trying to figure out how to be successful and make it through the process

I’m waiting a call back too. Keep me

posted on your status please, I will do the same.

What’s up guys been reading through the forum and trying to prepare for my upcoming S&D test on the 27th. I’m sharp and ready but just curious for the signal part of the test do you have to include the indication of every signal for each answer?

What’s up guys. I am preparing for my S&D on the 27th feeling sharp and ready but just curious about a few things on the test.  For the signals part of the test when we provide the aspect of the signal do we also have to provide the indication? Thanks in advance

All you have to know for the signals portion is the name (aspect) of the signals. The indications are on a separate part of the test where they give you the name of the signal and you will have to know what the indication is. Good luck and study very hard....

Afternoon,

 

Those that work at LIRR, does this proposed restructuring plan affect the hiring of engineers?  I know it has been said that the department is short, but I figured I ask to possibly remove doubt.

Thanks!

Maybe, maybe not. We don’t know anything. It’s still early.

According to this Daily News article it does not. 

As per the union. It won’t affect us, but if the carrier wants it, it’s going to happen. Until then they will be pumping out engineers

Their need for engineers seems to be dire, I could be wrong but maybe the soon to be complete east side access has alot to do with it??

Most likely has a lot to do with East Side Access.
There were S&D exams for Assistant Conductors and Block Operators recently.
And a new Section was created for Train Dispatchers.

@MistaFISH congrats. I can't imagine how you must feel, finally getting that "green card". Who knows, you very well may be a mentor of mine later down the road hopefully once I get to that piont. Was phase 2's on the job training more to your liking over strictly classroom training?
