I don’t know. They probably will look into your past or they probably won’t. I don’t mean to get into your business but I hope there was a reasonable explanation for your poor attendance. Reporting for jobs at the RR are on a different level from Transit. Your first year will not be easy.

I’m aware but I’m a B/O they hammer us with trips, mta has a strict attendance policy all around, 5 instances in 1 year & your on sick control & they don’t let use take days off unless it’s 90 days in advance, do you think I should notify lirr during my orientation interview ? On the application it says give attendance & discipline records “ at your earliest convience “?

I honestly don’t know why they’re hiring so much. They already have just about 20 people hanging each day. I  don’t see this huge retirement coming that soon. Same with the Engineers with 2 or more Lone Rangers . ESA isn’t nowhere near done.  We will see

Can someone clear something up for me. I’m studying the engine whistles/horn signals and communicating signals do we need to know the letter or number before the sound or indication. Example 

B. OOO

1. When standing; back. Answer to 12d and 16 c

2. When running; answer to 16c

Not really, no. The only one that ever gets referenced by rule number is 14L (- - o -) which is a horn sequence used very frequently. 14L has a very long indication, they'll tell you in class which parts you need to know verbatim and which parts you just need to "know".

I had mine last week (Wednesday) and would love to give my current employer ample time to find a replacement but haven’t heard anything yet. Hopefully this week.

Nah, don't sweat it.  Your instructor will tell you what you need to know.  I learned it verbatim......waste  of f'ing time
