Was a medical form needed to get your CDL permit? I passed all three and when I went to get my test certified, they said I had check one of the four boxes on the back of the application. And told me the first two boxes I needed a medical form, so I ended up just choosing the last one. I'm not sure if I'm screwed now.

For TA, no. You'll get an A3 restriction which is fine, unless you're working out of Staten Island and you're operating the S89, which goes into New Jersey.

Oh ok, that's exactly the restriction they added, A3. 

I was just paranoid because I was put on the spot by the DMV people and had no clue which option to choose.

What happens if I dont go in for pre employment? Do I miss out in the opportunity 

First, I took care of your other post.

Second, if you don't go in for pre-employment, you will be missing out on your opportunity. When you're ready to go back, if it's not that long compared to when you were supposed to go in, you can call them (347-643-8229/30/31/32) and they might still take you. If it's over three weeks or something to that nature, they will probably tell you to restore your name to the list. For information on how to do that, click here.

Went for pre-employment about two weeks ago & I just got an email to come in for my BOSS exam next week. I thought the BOSS exam was before pre-employment & medical was the next step after pre-employment? Young, do you know anything about this?

First, do you remember taking the BOSS exam? I personally did not take the BOSS since, according to the bottom of this page, I completed the BOSS for either 7105 or 7300 during the past calendar year.

If I had to take an educated guess: Since this list contains less than 3,000 names, which is very unhealthy to begin with, I have a "gut" feeling that they were anxious to establish this list. Now, since it's established, they have something to work with, between who shows up, who did or did not take the BOSS test, etc.

In addition, ever since NYC Transit took over their own examinations, the first Bus Operator Exam they published, Exam 2613, consisted of 3,621 candidates. With the fact that I failed the 10-day training in February of 2014, and the last post in that link was made in March of 2016, that tells me that the HR Department went through that list in "approximately" 2 1/2 years. Obviously with this exam, since there are less than 3,000 candidates, if they really need Bus Operators, they will probably go through this list quicker than they went through the 2613 list.

Again, these are just my thoughts...

When is a good time to call and actually get someone to answer? Lol

During normal business hours, Monday to Friday, 8 AM to 3 PM (ish). Make sure you speak to someone in person. If you still have trouble, you can always try to get a hold of Ms. Rivera.

Hmm, not for this exam. I probably took it for 7105. Sounds good! Thanks for the info as usual 👍

How is everyone doing, I had my pre employment an drug test yesturday , i was told by the mta clerk that they will contact within 2 to 90 days. 

They should not be wasting people's time doing drug test if they are not going to be ready to start calling individuals after January then these same people would have to retake thr drug test again February, March, April whenever they start calling again. I haven't gotten called yet and not even in a rush with them since I did the 2 pre-employments (4600 & 7105) and 3 times drug tests.

Don’t worry they’ll contact you sooner than you think. I know a couple people and including myself, who have been contacted within less than two weeks. I did my pre employment last week Wednesday and received an email on Monday, to report to 180th for the (BOSS) next week.

I agree...especially since, according to this website, if you type in "04600" followed by clicking "next" on the bottom several times, as of November 7th, they still have about 700 people to work with from the 4600 list. Therefore, IMHO, unless something happened such as most of them not showing up, I don't know why they started to call people from this list...to me it sounds unfair unless there's a good reason behind all of this...

Mind I ask what list number you are? Make sure to hide the last digit or two in order to hide your identity...

Yes, I actually took one earlier this year for exam 7300. As soon as I received an email to report next week, I called and asked if, “I needed to retake the boss since I’ve taken one this year,” and I was told no. Now I’m waiting for the next step which is medical. Btw have you checked your email or spam? That’s where they contacted me.

Did anyone do the medical yet? I wanted to know what happens after the medical 

No one could have done their medical because MTA isn't calling anyone at this time besides to do your pre-employment paperwork.  However, to your question, once you pass the medical the next step MTA will assign you to a class and date for your 10 days training.
