First off, I wanna say congratz & good luck to everyone whose been called for final processing... very exciting I know!

Next, I see some of you discussing the benefits of starting off as a CR then moving up to TO vs going straight for TO. Some have already pointed out a few of the pros/cons but I also wanted to throw in something else that should be considered- seniority. It is everything in transit. Seniority for CRs go up at a much more rapid pace than TOs bcuz people are always getting promoted, retiring or w/e. Whereas TOs generally stay TOs and for longer periods of time. In most cases, by the time you get called for TO you will have already gained seniority as a CR and are able to pick your own jobs/tours/RDOs. Some people like stability others like being XX, which is what you'll be if you give up being a conductor to go to TO. Back in schoolcar, back on probation & back on the bottom of the list. It'll be like starting your career all over again. Which is really the case for any title you move up to in TA but TO I think is one of the riskiest. So you will hear *a lot* "move up as quickly as possible." This a lot of times is why some people end up being a conductor 25-30 yrs. But some people are chasing the money and TOs do make more. So there's a lot to consider but you'll know what's right for you when the time comes and if it doesn't work out for w/e reason, you feel it's not right for you or you just don't like it- you can always go back to your old position.

 

Great stuff, thank you. Do you know the top pay for conductor by any chance and when do u reach top pay?

Good and fair point. I would think though this would make some inclined to become T/O first for the same point. You pointed Out Seniority. I'm my job Seniority is king. 👍👍

There’s a fingerprint fee as well? When do you need it? Why has no one mentioned this before?

Congrats & welcome. For boots I would suggest the caterpillars. I had the timbs at first and they’re really heavy and uncomfortable, the cats feel like sneakers.

You can find some cheap pants at target that match what they tell you to wear on that packet. You might want to get a duffle bag too since you’ll be getting so much stuff that you must carry everyday.

That’s too much to type on here, let alone sensitive information. Everyone is case by case at this point. Follow instructions when you get to 18O Livingston. You’ll be fine. Congrats again.

Hi guys,

Based on the recent posts, it looks like they are currently in the mid 1xxx's.

Below is a breakdown by score, showing how much numbers are within each score.

Looks like anyone with a score of 97.50 or above were contacted already.

Also seems like they are just starting to contact people with a score of 96.25:

97.50 >>> 508 thru 1436

96.25 >>> 1437 thru 3153

95.00 >>> 3154 thru 5621

93.75 >>> 5622 thru 8452

I did not mention the lower scores because you guys pretty much have no hope of being called.

Hope this puts into perspective whether you should expect a call anytime soon.

If you got a ticket,  just let them know tomorrow and when you get the chance to,  pay the fine.

Well there's 2 classes coming up. There was the recent April class who (& ouch) all chose to be in the A division, started posting then got called back into schoolcar for retraining for the B division. Rough.

Then there was my class- February. There was the December class before that. So that's 3 that I know of not including the upcoming ovbs

Top pay, under the current contract, is $31.63 increasing incrementally over a 6yr period. Used to be 4 then went up 5. The pension benefits are also not as good in the most current tier. Either the union is losing their touch at negotiations or Cuomo is just coming down hard af on TA.
