For those who took multiple p/e’s, were you contacted for the second p/e by mail like the first?

First was by mail, second was by email, third was by mail, but my first two p/e’s were when they were calling provisionally. The third one was after the list was established.

Thank you so much. On your second p/e did you have to fill out the application again or just give in the “homework”?

Once again...my TSS....a VETERAN to MTA....was just with the superintendent yesterday and was told that once my class goes YX...they will start with more classes..They have many many classes going on, they are just simply spread way to thin at the moment. I'm sure you guys waiting patiently, your time will cone soon...

P.S....operating a train is the easiest part of this job...fun too!!! Put your time in studying...allow yourself to decompress...learn the signals in small chunks...wait to get the MTA signal definition, dont think about using Google definitions and sites...most signals definitions have patterns, so its not like 100 random definitions...put your time in, and it will be easier than you think!

That’s good to hear!  I’m sorry if this has been asked before, but are there any materials available online or otherwise where we can start learning all this before we’re placed in a class?

You’re welcome. Second p/e I had to fill it out again. Homework has to be handed in when you get called for your medical.

Thanks bro. Good luck to you as well!

We’re in CIY now just studying a bit before the practical. Our proctors are TSS’ Lois and Oliver (yes, your Oliver).

You have one of our TSS’, Khan. He’s a bit of a hardass, but he’s fair. Just do your thing and don’t drink the koolaid.

It’s exclusively for NYCTA Subway. 

LIRR and MNR is a resume based application process.  Non civil service test like this exam.

No, completely different processes. 

I was at Metro North before the subway, I lost all my time and seniority.  

Its kind of like the MTA is General Motors (GM) 

Even tho you work for Chevy, Buick is run independent from Chevy

Congratulations, it was easier than you thought right.

I was up all Friday night stressing myself out, got up Saturday and knocked it out 1,2,3  

This stuff is finally sinking in after a month of feeling over loaded

How hard would you say the signal test was 1 out of 10, with 10 being the most hardest thing on earth.

Yeah I guess he toned it down for y’all because he isn’t instructing you guys. During my dry run, he hit me with everything and the kitchen sink in terms of sabotaging the train.

I can’t say indefinitely since I haven’t taken mine yet, but from what I’ve been told by upperclassmen, and from studying signals per my TSS’ instruction, it’s supposed to be a breeze. If you put in the work, pay attention, and study, it’s light work.

No pun intended with the LIGHT work right 🤣

Lol nice.

To be honest, the hardest signals are the miscellaneous signs. You can read a light if you know what each light signifies, but the signs you just have to memorize the definition.
