Has anyone on here been delayed by work verification/paperwork discrepancies? Was contacted a few days before the Nov 9th S&D overview and was asked  correct something on my paperwork. Was told due to the hold up I was not being invited to the overview. Pretty disappointed and hoping this will not be a huge set back... anyone know if there are more S&D overviews coming up in the near future?

I didnt know they look into anything concerning backgrounds until sterling does it AFTER you pass sd test? Does your resume match your job application 100%?? i know they are strict with everything matching.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

When I had applied for Metro North a while back, they wouldn't give me an interview until they were able to verify a mismatch on my application. I was working for Academy Bus but the particular garage that I was at, was under a DBA name: #22 Hillside. 22 Hillside was the name on my paychecks, although they also had the Academy logo on it. So I had to give them my paystubs, explain the relationship between the two and provide contact info to the managers. It took a week or so to get everything done.

I didn't get delayed but I did receive a call early in the morning around 6am asking me about my job history when I was going through the process. It was a simple fix in my case, so she sent me an overview invite on the same day.

I know we have to do medical but as far as our background goes, does linda or anyone from the lirr contact us to let us know if we passed or failed the background check? when can i expect an email or letter in the mail? thank you.

was it because your lirr job application did not match your resume? Or did the lirr actually look into it?

That’s weird I never heard of that too.. but it has to be something else because they sit down with you before the interview and go through your resume with you so it’s not like you would miss something unless it was something that wasn’t mentioned.

what interview are you talking about that they sit down with you and go through your resume? are u talking about the open house? if so during the open house i went to, we took the initial exam, they called out all the people who failed, then those that passed had to take the math portion and after we passed the math portion, that is when we were interviewed and went over resume and job application. did u have a different process at your open house mlad?

Basically what happened was , last year I went for MTA bus operator. I went through the  few days of training and did not pass the final driving test.  Didnt get the job. I asked at the open house if I should put this down on my resume & application and was told I should not. Then, a few days before the November 9th S&D overview I get an email asking me to add it to my application & resume and send it back - but that I would not receive an invite to the S&D overview because of the delay. I wish I would have been asked to fix it sooner but as long as I'm still in the running I am happy. I just hope there are more S&D overviews coming up soon and wont have to wait several months longer now. Looks like as it is folks who are hitting all their milestones on time have a long waiting process ahead of them as it is so ... yeah just a little disheartened at having more time added to mine.

Same thing but they made sure there weren’t any gaps in between employment

Has anyone from the May S&D exam hear back about their background check and a medical? 

Not medical, but my background check was completed 2-3 weeks ago.

I took mine in July and I just submitted all my paperwork for the background, Linda said something about a possible class starting 1-9, but originally said a date for 2-13, all tentative tho

I not only hate passing by a LIRR train because it reminds me of how I failed the second portion of the test, but I also have a profound new respect for every RR conductor outside the city. 

Maybe next time, maybe not- congrats to everyone that made it that day, study hard!! =D

 

4 only from the previous class stayed on? wow...

Hope to see you in class on 1/9. I started the flash cards again this week. I haven’t hit the definitions yet but the signals are coming back to me.
