Hmm well we鈥檒l well I was told you had to pay for health insurance by an TA employee... they pretty much told me nothing was free 馃槀

So let me make sure I鈥檓 understanding correctly...union dues Pay for vision and dental and transit provides medical coverage at no particular cost expect 2% contribution. So we help pay for those who retire and we get it for free. Correct me if I鈥檓 not getting it.

Thus the quotation marks around free lol.聽There is actually a paid medical with better dental but apparently unless you have kids who need a lot of braces or whatever its really not worth it and since I don't have it I don't know how much extra it is.

The 2% was explained to me as paying towards your own retirement healthcare, although let's be real, I'm sure that money is paying current retiree medical 馃槀

This. I鈥檓 also guessing having people come in for multiple drug tests helps them to get rid of even more prospective people. Some I imagine won鈥檛 want to be bothered coming in a second time, others may fail a subsequent drug test even if they passed the first.

I'm convinced it's a test to see who wants the job bad enough. I did three rounds of pre-employment prior to final processing.

They had a test for SA for June but it was postponed again 馃 I guess by now some of us know MTA loves to run you back and forth for PE and drug testing blah blah blah. So if they done mailed letters out up to 2900 hahaha get ready for the run around ugh 馃槕 especially if they only appointed up to 516. If that many ppl are getting letters I can only imagine how many ppl moved and didn鈥檛 update their info.聽聽

I think anyone who posts on this forum regularly clearly wants it bad enough. I鈥檝e been to 180 Livingston about 5 times in the last 6 months so I鈥檓 completely fine with going 2 more times if necessary to get the job. It might be harsh to say, but the more people that aren鈥檛 showing up or didn鈥檛 bother to update their addresses, the better for everyone else. Passing a drug screening and being forthcoming about your employment history aren鈥檛 terribly difficult to achieve... the less people that decide to become a part of the process, the more likely we get called sooner.

This is true but if they get wind they can always reinstate to the list...patiently waiting and yes I will go as many times as they call for me 馃槀

Since they managed to muck this up so badly with the provisionals, its not surprising they postponed filing for the new test again. You have people who have been down for 2 years with a list number of 1500 who can't get a straight answer about becoming permanent, meanwhile they're handing out pre-employment letters like candy. Like I said a few pages back...everyone should be prepared for multiple trips to repeat the same process over and over again. A lot of those 500 hired were already here too...so aside from the few fairly recent classes I don't think they're exactly cranking out classes either. Settle in for the long haul.

It's usually 20 or so people per class and I'm not sure how many classes they can run concurrently with the amount of instructors...or classroom space. I know Conductor classes took priority over us at 248. We got bounced around a couple times because they needed whatever room we were in.

One can only hope for the people who file for the next test that Transit聽figured out what went wrong and don't repeat the charade.

I鈥檓 assuming they鈥檙e rushing through the list to A) get rid of some people that don鈥檛 show up or fail to respond, B) get rid of people who fail the drug test. I can鈥檛 say how many people aren鈥檛 getting their letters, but they clearly have enough people showing up and passing considering they were up to 516 the last time I called... and assuming you called recently, they鈥檙e still up to 516.

Yes, I recently called聽

They're just going to keep people waiting on pins and needles. They can re-drug test you every 90 days if they want.

I do, especially after receiving their letter in December, truthfully I thought that list expired like all the other city exams I have taken and never been called to.

Hello everyone I just got an email from transit to do final processing on Friday for SA. They have a class March 18. They really are going thru this quickly. I was there in January for PE. Hopefully all those who did PE will soon hear something too.聽

Someone said previously that there鈥檚 no medical. So I guess it鈥檚 that 21 page packet work. Getting Documents n IDs. And I have to bring in a money order for fingerprint fees.聽

I was referring to the people hired that have been here, not people waiting to be called. If weren't hired before the list was established, then you were never considered provisional as that is an appointment status. Now they are appointing people permanently. They were hiring people provisionally for upwards of two years off of this test.

I know what you stated in your comment, but people have an option to be where they are, I personally will work at a company if I feel unhappy, or don鈥檛 feel rewarded at a company I work for, I can always leave if I feel I am not being treated right.

It's not an interview where you have to sell yourself. They make sure everything is filled out in the DCAS packet. If you've had any lengthy gaps in employment just be prepared to explain them. Nothing to really prepare for/figure out what to ask the interviewer to seem interested in the job type of things if thats what your worry is.

There鈥檚 only so many people they can put in each monthly class for station agent, but for whatever reason they鈥檙e trying to make the pool of people called for final processing as small as possible by sending the majority of individuals on the list for their drug tests now rather than later. I guess it just makes it easier for them to exhaust the list that way.
