But I just got the confirmation letter confirming my name back on the list now all I can do is just wait. I hate answering numbers I don’t know...LoL, I save the number they called me on the first time, I hope that’s the number they will used when calling again.

The electrical helper test is coming back this Summer of 2020. Anybody have any advise on what to study and focus on? I have a electric engineer technology degree, but that was over 15 years ago.

When I took it back in 2018 it was about 40 questions and primarily common sense but it did have some questions related to Ohm's Law. Definitely had some DC equations .. V=I×R. 

 

Some people bash on Passbook but it should point you in the right direction and help you understand what you might expect on the Exam.

If you end in Signal Department then unfortunately Flagman/Flagwoman is all you would be so yes but.. 

luckily this is a universal Helper Exam so if lucky then you can end up in a different Department. 

I had a good score so I had the opportunity to select either Power Dept. or Signal Dept. 

I would recommend Power Dept. Over Signal Dept.. Some Senior Maintainer's at Signal Dept. Are bunch of A whole's so they will take advantage of Helper's and treat Helper's like slaves. 

Have a buddy in Power Dept. and it's day & night experience for me and him. 

Had a family friend who was in Lighting Dept. But for some reason I haven't heard Lighting Dept. Looking for Helper's. 

Electronic Equipment Dept. Is another good place if you want use the skills they ask for .. but same as Lightning Dept. For some reason they aren't looking for Helper's.

You should really read the notice of examination befor saying that, I copied and paste this from the notice of examination. 

"Driver License Requirement: At the time of appointment, you must have a Motor Vehicle Driver License valid in the state of New York with no disqualifying restrictions that would preclude the performance of the duties of either title. If you have serious moving violations, license suspension or an accident record you may be disqualified. This license must be maintained for the duration of your employment in either title"

becarefull what information your giving out not to confuse anyone, the condition of your license does matter but it all comes down to the discretion of MTA at the end of the day.

well i'm just telling you from experience that I've seen mad people with f**ked up driving records that were still hired. You'd probably had to have killed someone in an accident for them to disqualify you

I really hope that’s the case with me Too and I end up getting hired I mean it is only a single speeding ticket on my record nothing else and I took a defensive drivers course as well. What’s the worst Driving record you’ve seen and still hired if you don’t mind me asking. Thank you👍🏻

Thanks It makes sense about it coming all down to the discretion of the MTA, I’m 20 yro and I understand what type of opportunity this is for someone my age so I’m very concerned with the matter.

Thank you 🙏🏻 I really hope so too that’s the goal. I called Livingston 2 weeks ago and the automated voice tells me they’re going to open again March 30 so I’m going to give it another shot calling Monday to see if they maybe got a spot for me.
