Make sure you guys dont have any open/ pending tickets

I have a recent speed trap ticket will that count against me? Or do you mean tickets that require court appearances to plead guilty or not guilty?

If you are young and don’t have much responsibilities , bills , or not in a better position whatever case may be it may be easier choice but if you gotta take pay cut , already highly ranked where you work at , have to take care of stuff then it’s hard. I’m still deciding.

I went through what you’re going through..non-union electrician making $30 an hour with no benefits/pension..decided to make the jump and I def made the right choice..yea i had to work a lot of OT to make up the difference but now i have full coverage insurance and a prospective date when i can retire..did a year as a helper and got promo and above the $30 i was making before MTA..E&E is a hot section right now so i can see guys moving up quick

You got promoted only after a year of being helper and taking the promotion test ? That’s pretty fast , congrats lol what department are you in

It's a tough choice for me because of my age and I'm currently 4 months working with another city agency...I get weekends off and all holidays with a solid schedule..it works out for me and my family and by moving to the MTA side you wont even see a weekend or solid schedules and you will be all over the city..if I got called when I didnt have a family it would of been a easy choice 

 

Trust me it hurts my head because EE sounds like a hard department to get into plus your off the tracks which is a huge plus
