Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

Recommended Posts

7 hours ago, Jay0989 said:

Based on the pace of the last appointed. The December 31 class appointed 1041. April 1 class had appointed 1320. Its taking about 150 applicants to fill a class 

That does not mean that at all. People get put on medical hold or may turn down the job or etc. Transit just goes to the next person in line and waits for no one. Please do not feed people false information.

Question for my future co workers I called DCAS right now and it says I'm currently not on an outstanding certification. A month ago I was on an outstanding certification so idk what that means my list number is 14XX if that helps with anything.

Depends on how fast these class fill up. I would say fall if they had kept going every month with classes. But who know now, I’d say at by next year for you or December(if everything moves faster)

Hey everyone, I called dcas and the recording mentioned that the last eligible is 845x, I'm list number 62xx. Although I got a 93.xx on the exam what does the"last eligible certified " mean? My apologies for the lack of knowledge, thank you in advance.

Hi all! Just called Transit and they’re at 1320 as of today April 17! Just thought I’d give an update for those of us who haven’t been hired yet.

I would imagine from DCAS statement that at the most there is a slight chance 845x has a chance of getting hired since they are eligible and you at 62xx have a chance of getting hired as well before the list expires in 2022 if im not mistaken. Which they may or can expand a yr or two like they did with the prior exam.

Interesting, sounds like the list is kind of moving along. I'm on the t/o waiting list to but I rather be a conductor first before taking on that responsibility straight off the street.

I'm also on the T/O list but that list is moving so slowly. The T/O list is currently only 860.

Yea I heard, I have a friend who is a t/o, if you fail an exam mainly signals you automatically get terminated from the position. He mentioned that he started out with about 30 and only 8  made it through. I currently work for the city already with paid summers off. I would suggest everyone to take a leave of absence if possible from your current position and try it out.

I would say go with what ever calls you first, that's what I'm waiting for but during the pre-employment for Conductor they told us we need to take exams as well and need at least a 70% and a 100% on last exam. If I remember correctly.

Just study your behind off when you get into school, and I have high hopes that all of us will be coworkers down in the tunnels
