This is b.s. I got called in for the nov 25th class. I didn't make it cause I was on medical hold. I did the sleep apnea for 1 month and then reinstate myself that day when I get cleared. I even got a letter from dcas stating that I am back on the list.

And now this.. 

First of all, I understand where you're coming from 100%. Personally, I did not find out they extended the prior list until I read this post, then I checked out this website to confirm it myself. My apologies if I hurt your feelings, however one of the things which I personally want to do on this website is be as truthful as possible, especially with the numerous anonymous guests that view the site, in which I have meant some of them in person.

I also sent you a Private Message (PM) as well.

I only see about 30 from 4600 list that have priority over 7612 from the dcas site.

Folks, I have good news!!

If you look at the Civil Service List Certification page of the NYC Open Data website, if you type in "Bus Operator" on the top right hand side of the screen, you will see that on January 10th, 2020, the agency requested 3,000 names to fill 100 vacancies. Although the first 94 names comes from the 4600 list, the remainder of the names comes from this list.

Best of luck to those candidates who will be reporting for pre-employment processing within the next couple of weeks.

I graduated 10/28/2019 (7612, I was a medical holdover for almost a year because of the sleep apnea testing) and at least half of my class was from the 4600 list, there were only 32 in my class. Once we left, Amos at Eastchester said there would be 70+ called every 2 weeks.

I was recently removed from exam 7612 because I didn’t report on the date. Is it a number I can call to be reinstated back onto the list.

Hi everyone. I received a text, email, and phone call to start the process Jan 29th. I am gathering the paperwork/info required to start this process. I read on here that the MTA is very specific on your work history background. I do not know the exact dates and times and told i can be disqualified if it is inaccurate. I also had a few breaks in work employment also. Some say go to the Social Security Office and obtain a work history record for a fee. Does the social security office give you a statement of your work history that day or do i have wait days to get it?  I am trying to get it before the processing date if that is possible.

I see on the paper work i received that a drug and alcohol test will be given. I take a pill once a day for high blood pressure.  Does anyone know if that will stop me from the process?

Is there anything else i should be aware of during this first step preliminary process?

Thank you all for your help and time.

Yes, Go to Social Security office and get a print out. It is about 90 bucks but they give you company names and dates. Its well worth it if you cant remember the dates. I went to the one near jerome ave and tremont? I think... but its same day print out. 

Drug test you just have to let them know what medicines your taking so that the lab knows. As far as what medicines you can be on and can not be on not sure.

I am going on the Jan 30th. Second time going for pre employment. Just make sure you bring your ID and other Id paperwork. Dress like you own the place and go over the checklist they gave you and dont lie about anything..

Hi, so I called them this morning and they said that my name is off the list, and that I have (3) three restorations for this exam. They couldn't really explain why I was called three times since October, so I believe the phone call to come down this week must be a mistake or like you said, "trying to give people a chance to come before they have to restore their name, since you get such short notice usually".

Anyone else experience this before?

Thanks

Your name is off the list completely even though,you never told them directly to restore your name on the list?

Thank you guys for your help so far. I see on the paper work it says that "Verification of a motor vehicle drivers license valid in New York State for at least 3 years prior to appointment". Last page says i must provide evidence. What do they mean by that? A driving abstract from the DMV?

Nothing different than the first pre employment. They did not call my list number for medical so the 3-90 days expired and i had to re do the pre employment again. i am list #1500s so you have priority over me since you have lower list number. Hopefully i can get called in to medical and get the ball rolling.

Went to 180 yesterday because I was on medical hold for the sleep apnea.  I was told that my medical expired and that I will have to do everything all over again. I wish they would tell you that you 90 days to return or that you will have to do your medical all over again. I must say, that this is a very long journey for me.

Hi!  I just received an email Friday (making it the 89th day from when I went in November) to go in for the pre-employment again.  My question for you is, did you fill out the application attached to the email again even though we did this on the first time?  And what about that 21 page of documents we received at the end of the process?  Did you take that with you too?  Thanks in advance!
