Message added by +Young+,

For reference purposes, here is the Job Vacancy Notice for this specific position.

Next, if you need help either studying for and/or successfully passing the multiple-choice examinations in order to obtain your Commercial Learners Permit (CLP), I would encourage you to check out cristcdl.com. Just remember that the multiple-choice examinations that you need to specifically take and pass are General Knowledge, Air Brake, and Passenger Endorsement.

Finally, if you are looking for the link to make yourself an appointment at the local Department of Motor Vehicles, click here.

Good luck everyone! If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

But if we did the survey were good right?

I think so...surprisingly, I just got an e-mail stating that the deadline has been extended to October 8th (Friday) for me to fill out the Google Survey, which I just did. So we'll see what happens...

I just filled it out stating I don't have a cdl permit and the passenger endorsement, I'll just work on getting those first. 

If you read the first page of the Job Vacancy Notice, which you can do so by clicking here, they are doing things differently now, at least for this particular examination.

Yea definitely different, and it was just a short notice and I need to study and make sure I pass rhe permit and those endorsement exams.  But my thing Is what would happen if I end up getting that way later after the exam date

Also sorry to go off topic but does anyone know about the other jobs that's posted on that website where you guys applied for thr bus conductor.

Track workers and train conductor were posted too like two weeks ago. Why I ask because I applied for those two and all it saying is I pass pre-screening and no further update on those

Good, all those emails helped.

@STtoMTA did your wife get a confirmation email about submitting her answers? I didn't get one.

Since the examination on October 23rd and 24th is full of candidates, and since the application period is open until November 30th, you will be included in the next examination, whenever this takes place.

Didn’t miss the boat after all! LoL. I got the telephone call and text. Will be filling out the questionnaire soon. Hope to see you all on the day of test! (especially Young*, shout-out for all your advice and help)

You would be disqualified. If you don't have the CDL (Commercial Drivers License) or the CLP (Commercial Learners Permit), you will not be able to continue.

So guess what happened today?

As a result of my initial e-mail to the "Exams Unit" back on September 29th, which I thought they ignored, they sent me a reply with another link to another additional pre-screening (https://forms.gle/4CFewHGJTnPr5Qm19). In addition, in the e-mail and on the additional pre-screening form, it states that the examination will be given on October 24th on a first come-first serve basis. We'll see what happens.

Good luck everyone!!

Looks like they're rushing this exam as the need in MTA bus company is high, from my perspective.

You know it. We are extremely short. I’ve been doing a second half almost every day and working RDO.

I like OT as much as the next guy, but I hope I don't experience this kind of toxic behavior from senior guys on the job.

I know guys that are Bus Operator‘s and they always tell the new guys don’t do the overtime. You are on probation for a year and if something happens on the road the transit will turn around and blame you. And they will try to fire you. When you get off probation then do all the overtime you can if that’s what you want to do. Save your job now and make the money later.

That is 100% true. Don’t put the extra risk on yourself. It’s not worth it. Although I did do Some OT during probation but I got extremely lucky and never had an incident. Another guy in my class wasn’t so lucky. Had an accident while doing OT and they did fire him. So you have to weigh the pros and cons. To be honest there is so much open work at CPT that there is no way it’s going to dry up.
