Transit cleaner position


HardWorkin

Recommended Posts

Is anyone thinking of or have applied for this? It’s free to apply to take the exam and a good opportunity to get your foot in the door in the MTA. What are your thoughts? 

Is anyone in here currently in this position? if so, what are your experiences? how long did it take to advance into another position and also are there  training opportunities offered from the union to advance into titles such as station agent or train operator without waiting for an exam?

Basically this is a gather up lottery to hire people into the Cleaner title. Cleaner is considered a civil service labor class title meaning you do not need to take an exam to get hired. Cleaners off the bat are eligible to promote to Station Agent or Conductor but to promote to Train Operator one needs to complete the TCP program.

Would you say it’s worth applying for ? how long does someone have to wait to transfer into station agent or any other position?  And after how long in the cleaners position can you join the TCP program

Sorry for the extremely late reply, this is definitely something that is worth applying for if you are interested in a career at NYCT. If one is looking for an entry level opportunity at transit it's either this or wait for the next C/R exam. As for Station Agent there is an exam that is open competitive coming out this year but likely it will require 18 months of customer service. I am not sure if you need to pass probation to enroll in a TCP course unfortunately. All in all it is highly recommended that you apply for this if you want to get your foot in the door at transit.

Yeah that list number for C/R is very high, might not get a call. But definitely take the cleaner position, it's a foot in the door and there's a promotional conductor exam coming this year as well!
