Station Agent 6600 Hiring Process

SevenEleven

Under construction

Also, does anyone know how the shifts are set up? The hubby is a conductor and told me their shifts are AM which is 6am-2pm and PM are 2pm-10pm, Nights are 10pm to 6am...I know we probably won't get to pick straight away after training anyway but I'm curious to know if station agents have the same time shifts also.

Heh your husband is generalizing. Those are the general times each shift spans from but you can work 8p-4a and that's still a PM job. The general shift times are a lot closer to stations hours than train service...from what I see, a lot are pretty close to those times give or take an hour, but for example, the outliers on AMs start at 3am and the late outlier is about 10am...so you can still be working anything within those hours.

As it stands right now, next week we will be doing an in house pick for extra list slots...RDOs and shift - the variety of which is entirely dependent upon what is given to the instructor for us to pick...i.e. it could all be midnights with tuesday/wednesday off if that's all they give him - and that is effective for the remainder of the winter pick and for the summer pick unless we pick something up off an open job bid.

May 14th is the Monday after we're out...I hope that means you'll have our instructor, I like him. He does a great job explaining everything and answering questions as they arise.

I don't think it has been yet. I got my letter with my list number but never got results so I feel like they are just calling people as needed.

I haven’t gotten anything for station agent, I got my list for conductor.

On the paper it said 170, but I am not sure that's my actual list number since I didn't get my result for station agent exam as of yet.

Wednesday/Thursday with all shifts available. Was your class the one with 18/20 drafted into wayfinder?

FWIW: when the instructor's boss came in to talk to us and explain what exactly being on probation is and so forth: he stated that there are 5 scheduled classes behind mine...so there's still a few on the horizon for people still waiting to hear.

As for list establishment...nobody knows. Have heard anything ranging from next month to the end of the year and beyond. The exams unit people who spoke to us at orientation the firsr day claim that they're "almost done" evaluating everyone's experience papers and that's what the hold up is with regard to list certification...but since we've heard nine different answers from as many people I believe nothing until I'm informed I'm a permanent S/A.

Our instructor told us the class before ours filled the rest of the wayfinder slots and they're locked in for a year so no...into the booth for you lol

I wouldn't have minded Wayfinder, was told there *might* be some jobs on the Winter 2019 pick.

Not saying this to be a jerk: but if 7a-3pm in Brooklyn daily is a problem...getting forced to PMs or Midnights with crappy RDOs depending on how your in-house pick plays out with your schedule varying by the day isn't going to be pleasant either. You're essentially going to be transit's bitch until you have enough seniority to not be. AMs was the first tour to close out in our class, and there were plenty of people salty that they got forced to midnights.

It sounded like wayfinder was at least a steady schedule...we don't have that luxury...it's extra on a tour with certain RDOs. You could be starting at 0300 (there is an AM lunch relief that starts that early) or as late as 1000 on the AM tour with various starting hours in between...and our instructor explained that when it comes to the in-house pick he is at OSAC's mercy as to what they kick him for jobs. (One class was ALL midnights)

Just prepare yourself and since you have a little time before class starts, think about how you're going to accomodate the uncertainty if you have kids or whatever.

The class pick is by seniority. It goes by the list number that was on the letter MTA sent you.

All depends who else is in your class...I was #5 in a class of 30s and 40s...and yes I picked first

Blue buttondown...not polo and dark blue or black pants.

Uniform order came within a week, however they seemed to send whatever they damn well pleased with regard to sizes so most of it had to go back.
