I'm sure at somepoint the class will be rescheduled....We arent doing transactions in the booth right now so it definitely wouldnt be a good time to observe or learn lol Good luck to everyone on this forum...I kno how the waiting game is...I did it for years...your time will come...stay safe!

All we can do is wait and see how everything unfolds, I know most service has been running on a limited/reduced  schedule, are booths still open ?? Are station agents working their usual hours and days? Just curious how you guys have been affected by this pandemic, what has changed?

Barely! Lots of clerks have had to close their booths down because they didn’t have a relief and were about to go into triples. Some booths have just been straight up closed due to no coverage. And lots of office workers are working from home

Wowwww, thanks for the insight to be honest I’m definitely in no rush to be out there, and I’ve also been keeping an eye on the number of MTA workers who have fell victim to this outbreak, it’s very sad. Hope everyone is cautious and do their best to keep safe.

Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but they sent out a memo stating they’ve put an Absolute Block on any hiring or promotions of any sort, until further notice. I don’t know how that will affect you since you were sworn in, which technically makes you an employee already. But it could be much longer than a while judging by the tone of the bulletin.

Footwear (for when everything opens back up) 

 

Are ankle height leather boot/shoes allowed? Like a 3-4 lace hole height or is there a min height on boots?

 

Is there a specific color they have to be? ie.. Black / black laces, Brown etc... 

 

Is there a specific style they have to be, round toe vs moc toe, smooth leather vs rough or doesn't  matter?

 

Facial hair: is there a max length? Gotta be short & neat? Or can you look like an unkempt caveman just so long as your polite to customers regardless of how difficult it can sometimes be. 

 

Thanks & Godspeed to all !!

Hello hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I received a letter yesterday that I was reinstated on the list from an appeal. Just curious to know what list number They are up to?

Has anyone heard any news about anything relating to training classes. Still anxiously waiting for the postponed Station Agent training class to start. I know nothing has really changed in respect to the reopening of New York City. Pretty much all social distance guidelines remain the same. I'm just wondering how the MTA will determine when to finally restart training? Will they await the somewhat relaxing of social distancing guidelines? Understandingly they are taking extra precaution in keeping everyone safe. Just hoping to hear any bit of news. Of course, as always, keep safe everyone.

I understand your anxiousness, but nothing has changed in regards to hiring any wine. That memo I posted in April still stands, no new hires and no new classes. They aren’t even processing promotions at this time either. Also all classes have Ben cancelled until further notice. And as far as reopening no one here could answer that question, as we haven’t been informed of this. The MTA is a state operated agency and thus gets all its orders from the office of the governor. So whenever they do open back up it’ll be under that offices timeline and guidance. I know this sucks and is probably the last thing you want to hear. But if I had to give it a ball park figure I’d say not until after the summer will they start to rehire, maybe even longer it they don’t get the government bailout they’re seeking.

   Thank you for the response. I’m hoping before long we all get back to normal. Any news from MTA would be welcoming news. Even a “don’t worry we haven’t forgotten you”  message from them.  Of course as always the safety of all matters the most.

      One thing that is worrying me is that last week I received a letter from NYCERS saying that the application was denied. Reason being that I was not in the “city system on the date of the application.”  I’m hoping that is just a technicality since I haven’t officially started training/working for the MTA NYCT yet. The day of the application was on the day that I was hired.

Don’t even worry about that letter from NYCERS. It’s just a standard letter sent out when you haven’t been in a working status for more then 60 days. I also got one when I was out sick long term last year. Whenever you start working another application will be sent in by TA, and your pension will start. As far as any news on hiring nothing has changed from my previous posts. At this point nothing is open at 180 Livingston street, except for the medical assessment clinic.
