Also, they will tell you in schoolcar that you're not being paid to open/close doors bcuz anyone can do that- you're being paid to 1) ensure the safety of the passengers & 2) know what to do/how to react when shit hits the fan. 

But TOs & CRs can/do have very productive partnerships afterall it is y'all's job to get that train from one end to the other safely. But many times in schoolcar they have insinuated the "throw them under the train" approach in order to save your job esp if you're on probation. It's sad actually.

I hear what you saying, I definitely encountered a few of those type of C/Rs, but honestly it’s how the person is! I’ve also encountered cool ass C/Rs. As a T/O you gotta understand also if something happens and the C/R isn’t with it, you can’t be mad. It is what it is! You can’t expect someone to jeopardize their job if shyt hits the fan! That’s my opinion, everyone is different but I definitely have worked with some probie C/Rs who have been mad cool, shyt cooler than a couple of the old heads!

I feel you bro it definitely goes both ways. I’ve worked with some T/O’s where I never saw their face the entire day, let alone having a conversation with them. I love working with probies and people who are fresh out of school car that’s how I met a lot of cool people down here. I try to be cordial and communicate with everyone because at the end of the day 1 mistake could have us both writing G2’s and calling the Supt at the terminal. It is what it is we have all types of people working down here I’ve learned not to take things personal. 

 

@Schecter “The 1” YUCK!

Damn that’s very discouraging for the fact that we are on probation for a year. If something goes wrong and the train operator doesn’t like you you’re basically screwed cause you have no union. Damn that sucks man. The closer I’m getting to my start date the more nervous I’m getting. I’m afraid to leave my job where I have union and seniority and I’m a delegate for a job where I could get fired just cause someone doesn’t like me.

Honestly just know your job when you're down here, and the train operator has no reason to hate you. As long as you're at your board you're good and if not you can always tell him to move up a bit to place you on your board. Some of the boards down here are off centered a lot and I'm never afraid to say move up a bit please. Remember they were once a rookie also and at the end of the day we're all humans so just treat everybody with kindness and everything else will work out.

What union are you in? Yea I understand I'm in the union and I'm high in seniority 3 outta 13. Also top pay in 15 mos away is $37+ per hr. I'm curious about transit. But it seems like transit in the beginning isn't a union shop. Which is crazy. Probation most union shops is 3 mos max. 

 

There's things in my Job we all wanna change but the security the unions give is something hard to give up for a yr. Also 5 full years to get full pay is rough.

I’m in a Hotel Union. I’m at 35 an Hour bringing home over a thousand a week. I get paid weekly I’m a delegate and I’m 3rd in Seniority and I do overtime like crazy getting paid 52 an hour. It’s a tough decision to make but I really want to go with transit because in the long run it’s a better career as far as retirement and even better pay but that year probation is scary man. I’m not a reckless person or nothing like that but it’s just scary to know that I could start tomorrow and be let go the following week.

Not if you know what to do, honestly a lot of people on probation usually get fired from opening the doors on the wrong side, using their phones and failing a system safety test, and falling asleep and tons of other stuff that idiots do down here.
