Very Interesting! If your name shows high on that list, is it a good sign that you may be called soon? Or is it only the first/top 65 people?

Are you referring to a high certification sequence number, which is the ninth column from the left? If so, from my perspective, it is not a good sign. As an example, my list number for this exam is in the 4700's, and, as of June 29th, my certification sequence number is in the 2800's. Therefore, it will be a while before they reach me.

As far as the first/top 65 people, we'll see what happens. It depends on who physically shows up to 180 Livingston Street, who takes and passes the drug test, who passes the physical, etc. However, if your certification sequence number, which is the ninth column from the left, is greater than 500, you will probably and most likely not receive an invitation letter in the mail. If your certification sequence number is greater than 300, you may or may not get an invitation letter in the mail - it depends on what happens with the first group of candidates. Keep in mind that the HR Office does not hold vacancies for people. In other words, if you're on Medical Hold for Sleep Apnea, and somebody else whose list number is slightly higher than yours can pass the drug test and the physical with flying colors, then they will be chosen to fill the vacancy first. If there are any more vacancies available once you come off the medical hold, then you will or will not be given the opportunity to fill the vacancy.

In addition, if you carefully examine the data, you will see that for the first 29 candidates, their list numbers are not in sequential order. This means that they have probably restored their name to the list and they will get first priority since your list number remains the same until the list expires.

how do we know how many vacancies in some position?

If you look at the chart by either typing your name and/or "Conductor" into the search box on the top right hand side, and you scroll all the way to the right, the vacancy column is the third column from the right hand side of the webpage.

Does this hold true for the train operator exam as well exam number 7604?

Generally speaking, this holds true for any civil service examination for the City of New York. If you're able to use the Civil Service List Certification webpage and interpret the data like I previously did for this title, then the same applies for any civil service examination, whether it is for a title for NYC Transit or for another title under DCAS (Dept. of Citywide Administrative Services).

If you need more specific examples, send me a Private Message (PM) and I'll be more than happy to elaborate.

For conductor 6601its 65 vacancies.  So 65 vacant.

Bus operator from 7612 is 100 vacant.

Subway exam 7604 is 57 vacant. 

Just sit tight next few weeks, they are back logged from end of march.  But it will get there. Human resources at 180 do a good job.

 

From July 6th on , keep your phones on, check your emails.  For conductors, train operators, and bus operators. 

 

Pay your tickets, remember your last 10 years working history or more, put it down,  don't leave gaps in between your employment applications.  If you have a gap, they will tell you that you have a gap, what did you do from july to august ? If you were unemployed, but down unemployed. If you moved didn't have a job from feburary to october for 9 years ago, put that down, moved feburary 2009 to october 2009 unemployed or searching for a job.

  Anyone on hold for medical for sleep apnea, its very easy.  I have a sleep apnea machine. You get a referal from a doctor, sleep 2 nights, if you meet the criteria for sleep apnea, you will get a machine. Sleep for the duration the mta medical ask for.  You can get a print out from your doctor with a treatment plan by your doctor. After that when you join the MTA, you will report back to medical and you can print out your own reports for your treatment plan.  Doctors will see it.  Try to sleep at least 4 hrs a night with the machine on. You will get used to it.  Clean it once every 2 weeks. You will sleep better than someone who doesnt have sleep apnea, trust me. Full of energy.

First of all, as per the guidelines of the website, can you please stay on-topic? If you briefly go 'off-topic,' it's okay, however please do not make this a routine.

Second, you are aware that the information you presented is 'sort-of' incorrect, right? If you type "Bus Operator" into the search box of the Civil Service List Certification webpage, you will see that the last group of candidates for "Bus Operator," which was from this past January, were hired off of both Exam 4600 and Exam 7612. Next, Exam 7604 is for the "Train Operator" position and not just a 'subway exam.'

Therefore, especially with the Hiring Freeze that in effect and with the fact that everybody is feeling a 'negative' impact of this pandemic in one way or another, we'll see what happens as time progresses.

So let me get this straight. There are only 65 open vacancies. So hypothetically speaking, does that mean if I was number 66 my only chance to get on would be if 1 person from the first 65 failed a drug test or physical, was not fit for the position, declined the offer, etc. ? That means if the first 65 people pass all tests and accept the offer of employment, unlucky number 66 would NOT get hired?

 

If that is the case, is it a game of luck/fate for anyone who is listed at 66+ since there are only 65 vacant slots?

We just have to see what happens as time progresses. Also, if I remember correctly, for School Car for Conductors you need to get an 80% or better on the examinations in order to proceed on the road and in customer service. Therefore, you need to consider this as well, in addition to what you previously mentioned. In addition, with the fact that they practically requested the entire list to fill 65 positions, which, in my opinion doesn't make sense to begin with, if there happens to be a last-minute vacancy or two for whatever reason, then they might take this opportunity to fill the last-minute vacancy without requesting the entire list from DCAS for a second time.

However, as a friendly reminder, there is also a hiring freeze in effect until further notice. Therefore, we'll see what happens as time progresses.

Even with a hiring freeze in effect, is there a chance they'd be able to slip in a small class of 65 or fill those 65 vacancies over the next few weeks? Or does that mean absolutely 0 hirings at all?

Hiring Freeze just means that any hiring that has to happen must be approved by a slew of directors, they still have multiple positions that they are hiring for.

Hey Bro I know it’s frustrating but just try to hang in there man. A lot of conductors either retired or passed away due to COVID may they Rest In Peace. There are a lot of open jobs out there. I hear it all the time in the crew rooms and they are always calling for overtime. Just try to hold on a little longer and wait to see what happens.
