B/O 7612 Hiring Process

+Young+

LIST STATUS UPDATE: 2/21/2021

The list for this exam has been published as of October 17th, 2018.

In addition, here is the Notice of Examination for this specific exam in case anyone needs this for future reference.

PAY: $23.84 to start, raises to $34.06

TRAINING: See this thread for more information.

HIGHEST LIST # CALLED: For initial P/E: (Last Known - 2847); For Medical: (Last Known - 2500s)

(According to the 12th page of the B/O 9604 thread, which can be viewed here, they have begun to canvass names off of this list. Therefore, I believe it is safe to say that everyone on this list has been called for the initial pre-employment at least once.)

NEXT SCHEDULED CLASS: Currently Unknown

For those who will be reporting to Livingston Street in the future, click here for the pre-employment packet and click here or for extra pages of the CPD-B booklet (if you need them) for final processing.

Next, for those of you who are still waiting, you folks might want to check out this and this YouTube video. In addition, if you need help getting your Class B CLP (Commercial Learner's Permit), I would encourage you to check out cristcdl.com which is free!! Remember, the multiple-choice tests you need to take and pass, at minimum, are General Knowledge, Air Brakes and Passenger Endorsement.

Finally, if you need to make an appointment at the DMV to take the multiple-choice examinations for your Commercial Learner's Permit, click here.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We're here to help each other.

Good luck!!

From what I've been reading on the forum, you only have that one chance during the 10 day training to pass. Also, I think there's a waiting period in order to be reconsidered for a B/O position. Maybe another forum member could clarify a bit more. Also, if you don't mind what's your list number? Remember to leave out the last 2 digits.

Is there a specific book for MTA buses to read or your suggesting read the regular cdl manual from dmv?

Yes, according to the rules of the agency, the waiting period is five [5] years.

Besides getting terminated, which is stated on the bottom of the fourth page of the Notice of Examination, a few other things will happen as well.

First, without your knowledge, the department in which you got terminated from, will produce a Memorandum with your name and former pass number in the subject line stating that you "are not recommended for rehire in another title." See the first picture below, in which I think the word "or" should be "are."

Second, if you successfully take and pass an exam for another title, even if it is for a MaBSTOA Bus Operator Position, you will get multiple "1-in-3" letters in the mail, which you can see in the second and third images below. Apparently, from the perspective of the Human Resources Department, also known as "Employment Operations," even though they are supposed to hire from a "list," and although this position and other positions such as Conductor, Station Agent, Track Worker, Train Operator, etc., are "civil service," they apparently get away with breaking the "civil service" rules and regulations while the applicants, which includes all of us, have to follow all of the "civil service" rules of the City of New York.

Are you familiar with the handouts? Until you get the Student Bus Operator Instruction Manual from Zerega, I would familiarize yourself with these handouts as much as possible. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Good luck!!

Hmm. When I failed training for exam 4105 a few years ago and had to resign, they told me it won't affect me getting hired in another title. 

 

Im currently a vested Train Operator. So either this memorandum is bs, or I'm one of the lucky ones who slipped through the cracks; otherwise they lied to my face.

Just an FYI to anyone attending training in Zerega this Sunday, September 27, 2020 or in the near future if it doesn't change.

You have to wear medium type work shoes with laces in all black , NO sneakers or slipper type shoes.  Pants have to be long dark blue (navy),  NO jeans or cargo pants.  Shirt has to be solid light blue button down with a collar, NO polos. Tie solid navy blue or black (I would find a clip-on one)

Hi everyone

I live in Queens and want to know if I could go to a DMV in Nassau County and apply to get a cdl permit?

Nassau has a few slots in early October.

The DMV website recommends doing business in the county that you live in, just wondering if there would be any problems in a different county like Nassau?

thanks
