Passed Prescreening

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've applied to several MTA positions throughout the passed year and whenever checking the My Applications tab, I get passed prescreening but that's it. No call, no email, anything. What does it take to get an actual call back or something? I don't want to sound entitled, just getting a little discouraged with the job market (overall). Those said positions I've applied for are closed.

You're in the right direction. Keep trying, but do not apply more than once to the same position unless it reopens. I was informed by admins or mods here that are higher up in the agency to NEVER EVER do that. There is a thread on this board about this topic I made not too long ago. It's more luck of the draw or in a waiting list we all have come to the conclusion on. Just keep trying and have faith. You passed prescreening so that's a good start.

Thanks for the reply.

I've applied to several of the same positions that opened up from last year to now (Transit Customer Service 1 &2, Transit Customer Service Specialist, Customer Service Usher, and Customer Service Specialist). All passed prescreening but no communication.

 

Just trying to get out of these dead end jobs, appreciate you for responding.

I hear you 100% on all of that. Takes awhile to receive communication. Take it from everyone on this board. Sometimes it is quick, other times really slow. The MTA is going through a hiring freeze due to financial restructure at least for the metro north I hear. I wish you the best of luck. Also, keep this in mind you are competing with many people in the tri-state area. Alot of people desire a career with the MTA, cherish the job once you get in. It will suck at first based on what others say and depending on your job title, but if you can tough it out you will reap the benefits and the satisfaction of being in the biggest transportation agency in the US. To me mass transit is a really cool thing, so I hope it will be a fantastic career when I get the chance to be in. I'm in the same boat as others here, we passed a test in GCT awaiting confirmation of a drug test and interview. Hopefully we make it.
