Hopefully it’s no big deal. Was it the regular beep type hearing test?

So I guess you can't use them when you want!! 

Are you on probation for one year??!! How is the presence of TWU in MTA? 

You can use them whenever you want. You just should only use your SICK days when you're actually sick or have a real family emergency (with doctors lines). Not call out sick to stay home and watch the Super Bowl, or go to the pool on Sunday with the family. I know in other workplaces that's okay, but understand that because of the nature of this job, you should only call out sick when necessary. 

Also, please: if you're actually sick, definitely stay home. Go get some quick doctors lines. Your health is a lot more important than this job.

As for probation, you are on probation for 1 year beginning on your induction date. 

TWU presence in the MTA? Not in RTO. Only around election time and when its time to pick. Always keep union numbers on you incase you need them though.

Unlikely he/she gets called unless they extend the list like they did with the previous one. Hopefully they do because so many people took this exam. Would be a shame to see people score so high and not get hired. If they do extend, maybe in 7-8 years? Just a guess. They reached pretty high on the previous list.

Seems like they’re moving through this list. On Tuesday when I was on the 6 a TSS brought this class up to my window to observe what I was doing. Plus I saw about 3 students posting this week.

Man the truest statement I’ve heard so far is time flies in transit. Tomorrow makes it my official 8th month down here it’s crazy 😩

To everyone waiting stay patient and your time will come.

Anyone know roughly the ratio of potential conductors who pass versus fail the Final exam in school car? I hear most people pass, but my concern is what would cause someone to fail?

I see people in the low 1300s have been sworn in.  That deeply disheartens me, to say the least, bc I should’ve been one of them. I’ve waited years to get hired, like everyone.

 

.....But I was screwed over, based on my last post to this forum.  I followed the rules, dressed professionally, showed up in time (super early to get a low ticket number, which did NO help)....but bc I couldn’t stay to piss in a cup, after already waiting SEVEN hours, for the THIRD bs pre employment, I was removed from the list. That is unacceptable. And I’m sure some can relate.  And those who say, ‘well if you want it bad enough, you make time’.....that really annoys me bc I’ve tried......

 

I am a CURRENT employee. For those who get hired with the MTA, see how easy it is to get a day off, or even a change of assignment, then get back to me. I’ve put in COAs twice already for this same nonsense....which is hard enough....that does not mean I can spend ALL day at 180....I have a responsibility to my current position to report on time. ....as people have posted, the nature of this job is to report ON TIME, no matter what.... Therefore, I had to leave, which does not insinuate I did ‘not want it bad enough’.  There is NO excuse to shut down the MAC indefinitely.  And for current employees, fandoms, accidents, etc, there are MACs all over the city, NOT just 180. So if 180 has candidates in, they should be considerate of their time and get them through a PE as fast as possible, ESPECIALLY if it’s a 2nd, 3rd, 4th.   I was given no professional courtesy in getting through fast.  The whole process for those of us back for 2, 3, 4 PEs should take no more than 10-15 minutes....to review the SAME application (btw, NO photocopies allowed...I learned that the hard way), and pee in a cup.....NOT 8 plus hours!

 

What further aggravates me.....on my second PE, there was a female MTA employee in my group to review the PE paperwork.....the male HR specialist was all nice to her, saying he’d get her through the day quick, laughing and everything...and she was NOT working that day. I WAS working later.....was I given any courtesy like that?  Nope....bc I’m a male (Isn’t that discrimination?).  So should I not be aggravated? Does anyone relate??

 

I waited years, like everyone, and I should’ve been sworn in for this next hiring,  based on my list number. And I missed out.  And the third PE was a completely wasted date (time AND money for tolls, gas and parking)....simply bc I couldn’t stay any longer for a piss test, even though I did a THIRD, UNCHANGED PE application. Total nonsense!!!!  And I was in line over an hour early, and waited SEVEN hours.

They take people coming in for the first time over those back a 2nd, 3rd, 4th time. Does that make any sense? Those of you who get hired by the MTA, you’ll see....that’s how the whole authority is run....backwards.  

 

Anyone have any advice on who to call to reactivate my name and go back in for the next class?? Is it Vargas?.

****And PLEASE be considerate to all of us are who still waiting, and those who are possibly in similar circumstances as me, and not rub in that you’ve been ‘sworn in’.  Thank you.

Although I can relate with the 3 PE's, I went in this week for the medical. I was put on medical hold, I was pissed too, but I have some things to take care of. Even with that, I am happy for anyone who has waited yrs to be sworn in. They give the rest hope that one day soon, it will be their turn. So they are not rubbing it, they are CELEBRATING, and sharing it with the rest of us who have been on the same journey.
