LIRR Assistant Conductor Trainee

Recommended Posts

Like i said previously: 

 

"Don't expect to have a life, don't expect to sleep regularly, make sure you have a reliable source of transportation, and make sure you have a reliable phone. Do what you're told, be where you're supposed to be, and don't complain. That's it, really"

 

Also when you are in class, STUDY!!.  You don't want to be the guy who washes out during the book of rules class.  Once you get past that, everything else in comparison is much easier.

 

Once you qualify , then everything else is easy. But thats down the road.

He told me rather bluntly that i need to worry more about getting off probation, then worrying about qualifying.

When you guys took the books of rules test, how was it? Did they put any signals and definitions/ horns and whistles? Was there fill-ins, true and false?

About how long after the preliminary testing would you receive an email for the next step if they decide to move forward with you. I believe they said they'd email about the background check step.

I submitted my background check on friday. About how long does it take for everything to be verified? I'm a little worried about one job because the building closed down and the phone number probably won't work. However, I was able to get a supervisors email to put down. How exactly do they even verify these things?

Mines took about 2 weeks only because my hs was not returning their phone calls i also had a job that closed down i just put the information and they never had a problem just make sure everything you put is exactly the same thats on your resume because that will hold you up if not .

I'm on day 3 of the background check sitting at 2/6 searches completed. My boss said he hasn't been contacted yet. I wonder if they try a different way of verifying jobs first. Hopefully everything goes smoothly.

I was the same way just anxious to find out if everything was good emailing everday....if you have a good background and job record you are good to go just be

patient.

 

My class started last week

My background check was completed today. One of my jobs I had to provide a W2 form for and I just checked the results and that job came up as "consider" not clear. Not sure why this happened or if it's going to prevent me from going further.
