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.

awaiting for my test on 10/26 but quick question tho... I remembered I got into a minor accident last year. Will this prevent me from getting hired? 
 

**first accident in 25 years after owning 11 cars. =\**

No. But be honest about it. When you’re completing paperwork, there will be a section for accidents. List it and they will ask you about it. You should be fine.

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. 

Damn, my OT gonna disappear soon. The majority of seniors mean it as a joke but they turn out to be good people. OT dries up at the beginning of the year usually and then it comes back.  Flip side tho, new students mean people to line train, which is still money.

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!!

First come first serve? Does that mean once I get the response back with the exam site. I should show up 5 hours early???? @+Young+

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. 

As far as rushing the exam and being extremely short, if you look at the attached image, which can also be viewed here, the agency recently published an advertisement for this on their Facebook page, which, as far as I remember, is the first time they have ever done this. Therefore, we'll see what happens as time progresses.

As far as showing up five hours early, I would use common sense and take it from there. If the administration of this examination is going to be similar to the examinations they have administered in the past before COVID-19, this is what is going to happen:

They usually rent out a public high school. Lately, for a large number of applicants, it has been Midwood High School or Franklin K. Lane High School in Brooklyn, however I do remember reporting to P.S. 248 Brooklyn (NYC Transit's Learning Center) for one or two examinations in which the number of applicants wasn't as high. When you proceed to the "designated" entrance to the building, after they check to make sure you have your CDL (Commercial Drivers License) or your CLP (Commercial Learners Permit), which is what the bottom of the second page of the Job Vacancy Notification states, you will receive a "seating card" to a classroom and seat number. Normally they fill up the top floor first, such as the fourth floor, followed by the third, followed by the second, followed by the first, and then they will start the examination with the short-term memory section, if there is going to be one.

Therefore, like I said, I would use "common sense" and take it from there. Once you receive your admission letter, if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

So I finally got my 1st Survey and the id that they send, funny this came after I wrote 2 letters to them. 

Now i got a second email replying back, with the same survey and the same id.

That's twice I did this survey...In a way I'm glad they send me my survey twice I might add, but....

How long will they decide to send the admittance letter to the actual exam? I really hope they look at this surveys...for the love of God...=)

For everyone taking this exam and MaBSTOA #1100, I highly suggest you think about what position you want to go for as each division will be restricted to what you can do along with the benefits.

If you decide to go with MTA Bus:

Quote

You will be restricted to the former private lines depots, including, Yonkers, Eastchester, College Point, LaGuardia, & Rockaway. IIRC, the pension for this position isn't as great as regular MTA but still good. Most of MTA Bus is full of the EXPRESS LINES which means you will be driving a majority of the D4500's.

If you decide to go with MaBSTOA:

Quote

You will be restricted to the following depots; Kingsbridge, Gun Hill, West Farms, Jackie Gleason, Flatbush, Grand Av, Ulmer Park, ENY, Mother Clara Hill, Manhattanville, Quill & Tuskegee.

Pardon my ignorance but I don’t understand…you wrote “if u decide to go with MTA Bus … the pension for this position isn't as great as regular MTA.”

Please clarify. Thanks.

I'm told that the petition for MTA Bus is less then the one for NYCT or MaBSTOA, but that was a few years ago. Not sure if the upcoming merge will fix fix problem.

It will, pay will be retro to current TA rate, insurance is similar and the passes can be used on all transportation now.  You still get paid for half your swing and a dollar extra for artic instead of 2 so basically similar
