Hello:

I have a question, and any feedback would be greatly appreciated. 

 

I am ranked 13** on this list for Conductor (#6601), and I had deferred it initially, due to being a current MTA employee in another title and unable to transfer at that time.  I then took the offer for the August class, but due to family reasons, I had to defer that hiring as well.  Numerous people have since been hired, and Transit is still hiring.  I dont think Ill be able to recertify my name until at the earliest, mid April 2020.  I'm very concerned Transit will either: 1) close out this list and have another exam; or 2)have hired all they need, and no longer hire new conductors.  If I must wait until mid April, would I still have a chance of being hired onto this list, or should I do all that I can to try to get recertified ASAP??

More than likely you're going to the B division. Currently there's a shortage of conductors in the B, so much so that they've been recruiting conductors who don't have picked jobs in the A division to come over. 

Yeah they even put it on the sheets to put in a g2 to the crew office to get into the B

I would try to get recertified you don't want to miss an opportunity, and then have to wait until the MTA decides to spit out another conductor exam.  But if you have to wait until April 2020 I would try talking to Ms.Vargas over at 180 and ask her for her advice as well. She's a super sweet lady.

For Ms. Vargas it's 347-643-8218 don't leave a voicemail because you'll never hear back at all. So just keep calling and you'll get her eventually, Monday through Friday I don't know her hours but probably anytime after 930am.

If its been more then 60 days since your last P/E then yes. But they probably still have your old form on file and you can ask for it so you can just transfer all the information over.

Eh I already filled it out. I remembered that I made a copy of the previous paperwork so it was just a simple matter of copying the info over

I'm hoping the reason they're hitting me with this almost no notice P/E is because they're bringing me in soon. Typed up on the 20th, received on the 23rd, for the 26th. Hasty

Anyone know when the next train operator or conductor exam will be given?

Way too soon to know, but 2+ years for each is almost a certainty.
