B/O 7612 Hiring Process

+Young+

LIST STATUS UPDATE: 4/27/2021

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

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.

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.

For those of you who wish to restore your name to the list, you must do so by sending an e-mail to certificationunit@dcas.nyc.gov. In your e-mail, state your full name, exam number, list number, the last four of your social security number, and a brief reason why you're restoring your name to the list. You don't have to go into full detail in the e-mail.

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!!

I understand, what I have the most difficulty with is my tailswing when pulling out of a lane or a bus stop, like if I'm along a 2 lane street and there's a double parked car in front of me, once I start turning i cant see my back wheel or what its going to hit. 

Oh okay. When I clear today I will PM you some pictures of what you can use as a reference. What I notice that the superintendent doesn't show you the full structure technique how to maneuver these articulated buses which I plan to teach someday in the future if I ever joined the safety and training division at zerega.

Yeah same here. My coworkers have told me stories about how some operators turn out of the bus stop to wide and end up knocking over a sign pole or parking meter, which is a write up.

As someone with some experience with the artics, they're really not that hard to get the hang out. It may be a little harrowing but the day I trained on them I found them pretty fun to drive actually.

Keep in mind that you're driving the front portion. Even though the trailer has the powered wheels, your center wheel should be your reference point. Just watch the trailer section as it follows your rear tires and adjust if needed!

Watch how this bus exits the stand and how the trailer follows the middle wheels!

Hi, can anyone tell me if Fare Evasion
(I used a school MetroCard on a non school day) is considered a criminal conviction or create a criminal record?

I completely forgot that I did this once like 15 years or so and the police officer took my information down and gave me a ticket/summons, I went to see the judge and got no leinincy so I was guilty and payed the fine. I did NOT get arrested or booked for prints.

I add this on the 19a Article dmv form I had to fill in today, they told me I had to add it in if I saw a judge.

Since I completely forgot about this I didn't include it on the pre employment papers and the CPD booklet papers, is there a way I can update those documents with HR at 180 Livingston?

Thank you guys

If I was you, I would talk to your Superintendent about this and go from there. The reason why is because, as per the top of this webpage, you can only access 180 Livingston Street by appointment only. In addition, as you mentioned, you did NOT get arrested or booked for fingerprints for criminal purposes. Therefore, hopefully this can be fixed "remotely" compared to "in person."

Good luck!!

He probably use to operate out of UP. Sometimes they love going to areas where they’re familiar with the routes out of the depot they use to operate out of.

After responding to the email for pre employment back in January, I get an email today saying I failed to report for labs. I never received any call or email telling me to come in, nothing in my junk mail folder either. This is crazy. Now I’m considering whether I should wait to be contacted for track worker since I’m in the mid 500’s and the list is moving, or restore my name to the bus operator list.

If you're unsuccessful in calling HR and/or you get the "runaround" for whatever reason, I would encourage you to get in contact with the "higher ups" who you can view here.

Good luck!!

So I went through the whole hiring process and was supposed to start training on Feb 28 2021..  1 week before training got an email that my appointment offer was rescinded because of budget cuts and to wait for another class starting in March I was wondering if this has ever happened before?

  (got called since March 2020 but was sent home because of COVID19)

Have you considered getting in contact with the "higher ups," who you can view here? From my perspective, it sounds like you got "screwed" big time, however that's just my opinion, especially since there was a February 28th class.

In addition, depending on what they say, have you considered complaining, in the form of a formal letter to the Governor using the address at the bottom of this webpage? Now I know what's going on with the current Governor (Andrew Cuomo), however even if you write on the envelope "Office of the Governor," and you start out the letter with "To Whom It May Concern," I'm sure your issue will definitely be looked into.

Good luck!!
