Staten island interview and Metro north were both panel interviews. I thought the staten island one went great but I was wrong. The metro north one wasnt bad but it was before a big snow storm and was kinda rushed. I feel like I could of answered the questions better. 

 

Thats awesome man, good luck! What position is your physical ability test for?

Well I just got an email from staten island railway and it looks like I didnt get the job. Very depressing. Hopefully I'll hear back from Metro North for the custodial position one of these days. 

 

in the meantime I guess I'll keep applying 😩

Sorry to hear that frank... It seems like what everyone is saying is true though. No news is good news. You got a denial right away and haven't had one for the custodian position.

With the announcement of possibly 1900-2700 layoffs, is it safe to say we have no shot now as far as the non essential positions are concerned? Is nothing set in stone yet as far as the reorganization plan?

How was your PAT? I am given 40 mins for my PAT, did you feel like you had to rush thru? Or was it at a nice calm speed? 

 

Lastly, was every task demonstrated to you first or was it just asked that you perform it? I know you did track worker, mine is for third railman MNRR

 

im slated to do mine next Thursday.

Have you received a second sterling background check email yet? 

 

What information are they asking for in this round of the background check?

The second background check was just a criminal questionnaire sheet that I had to fax within 48 hours along with my conditional offer.

Any word on starting date? I passed my medical and PAT. 

 

Also, do you know how long our exams are good for? My class is now tentatively in November, waiting on a start date and final offer.
