My current job I make 18.00 biweekly I get 1600 take some 1100. If I get quarterly bonus of $400 , that pay check is 2100 I bring home about 1500.00 something like that no vacation or sick time, I accrued 4 hours every pay cycle which I need to accumulate for either vacation or PTO once a month 8 hours. No medical unless I want to buy it Cigna 200 $ a month vision is 7.29 and dental is more money . I pay short term longer term and life insurance, lets be real I don’t ever use that and is money wasted unnecessarily . I am a cautious careful person.

Oh and my metrocard each month is pretaxed 121.00 into a Visa card taken out on my second ch3ck so my second check is about 800.00

To each their own. But to not contribute to a 401k is to leave money on the table usually. The company gives you money basically.

I agree with you is the company contrubution matched after 3 years or the same year.

I mean you’d probably never use life insurance unless you well...die. So let’s hope not but it’s more for your family and less for you so they can bury you and make sure they’re ok without you.

Lol.  Absolutely not, never used short term nor used long term disability, but I see a lot of my coworkers always go on it, I don’t know how they always be out sick, but hey they take off 5 weeks , 6 months have other life issues to leave early at 1pm from work, I don’t know what kind of excuses they use, I never received that.

Lmao oh. My bad I misunderstood. You never know. You may need it but hey that’s up to you anyway. You usually don’t even have to pay extra for disability anyway.

Once again, you've applied for a job that people want PURELY FOR THE BENEFITS. Not contributing to your pension is not an option. Declining medical is also not an option unless you have proof of alternate coverage.

Oh, and that $121 pretax monthly? Lol you get a pass...that's yet another thing you won't be paying for here.

Yes you pay for the pension, and the percentage of deduction varies based on your earnings because Tier 6 is messed up. It's a variable contribution rate of 3-6% of your pay based upon how much you make.

Like I said, you can't decline medical unless you have proof of coverage elsewhere. Transit provides short term and life insurance for NOTHING and you can buy above that if you want (which clearly you don't.) but you are not forced to.

Thank you hmc12989 I will be happy that I won’t have to pay that 121.00 a month , do you receive that at the preemployment after you do fingerprinting

Pension pay out is based on how much you made...they take your top 3 earning years and average them or something...this is why you have old timers packing in the OT to pad their pension. Nobody can calculate how much you're taking home in 25 years after promotions/who knows what pay rates will be like then. You certainly will be better off than relying on social security.

Absolutely, right now my social security statement says I will receive 1400$ but is there a lot of overtime offered .

you know I work with a lot of people who worked at MTA and NYCHA housing authroity who were let go because they did not have a civil service certification or had taken exams for the positions they were in,. So now with this process in place where ppl take exams I guess it offers more cushion to workers.

If they didn't send you a disqualification letter over the summer (and I'm talking about snail mail, not the email and phone call charade) then obviously whatever you put down on the filing paperwork back in 2015 passes muster for whatever they consider qualified.

Button down and khakis or similar is fine. People show up in jeans but a.) it says not to, and b.) in my personal opinion that should be used to weed more people out because they can't follow simple directions.

People go on the opposite end of the spectrum and show up in a 3 piece suit...nobody's gonna fault you for that either, but it's overkill lol

Well, if anything, I'm just going to be honest and not lie and pull any punches. Also BTW, good luck to anyone going down Wednesday for your drug test or final processing.

Medical insurance is comprehensive coverage no deductible, or copays or premiums?

What's the name of the health Insurance they offer?
