Hey everyone.  I'm new to this forum and obviously very late.  Can someone explain what the Canvas letter is?  I've been to 180 twice now for the physical but haven't heard anything back yet.  16xx

The canvas letter is an email theyry send you with 2 phone calls (if you miss the first ) before you get called again for medical with them asking you if you still want the job (hence the name canvas) and with some more employment paperwork to fill out if you're still interested.

Yessir, twice. Last time I was there was June  2019. They sent me home with a packet to fill out. But I haven't heard anything since then.

Well I guess I'm gonna have to run down there to check if my info is still in their system. I haven't received any calls or emails. I've just been watching the Cival Exam list to make sure I'm being recertified.

As long as you're in any can you're blessed!  Plus the trash trains don't talk back like revenue. 🤣. Congrats and go play with the vacuum train or something

Is that something they just randomly do? Do you have to apply for it or take a test?

Hey I have a question. I’m confused about salary. The appointment paper says $36.48/hr, but union site says $37.23, and the civil service certification list says $37.05. Why so many discrepancies? What is Train operators salary to start?

There's a raise that's supposed to happen in may that's probably why the discrepancies. Our starting rate is 35 something I don't remember.

For everybody that's coming in, I'm going to make a book recommendation.

https://www.nyctrackbook.com/

It is an encyclopedia about the system. It's a train buff book so it's more about just getting acquainted with the system if you are interested or are like i was and had no knowledge about it except the price of a fare and where to transfer to the D to get home. It has a lot of info about lines, yards, the trains, etc. Mostly buff stuff and not what u need to get through schoolcar but it'll open up your mind and get your "transit brain" started.

 

It isn't cheap, but I just came across it and i have been looking at it all weekend and using the maps of the lines to get myself familiar with the B division key areas.
