Nothing here yet,they have until next April technically to send us our list#'s. Wow,this website used to be much quieter when we took the test back in April. Now it is impossible to keep up with all the new threads. In the beginning I think DOB2RTO was in every single thread on this website.:)

well if we don`t get it by april like we were promised i will call up and say lesson weres the test score and list numbers

 

Dug up one of Chris Frusci Sushi's posts from awhile ago.

 

"The letter can be sent out anywhere from 3 months from now, to a year from now. I would say sometime around Thanksgiving.

 

Don't even bother calling a number. The first information you will get is when you check your scores online. Don't worry though, the time flies. Stay patient and enjoy the process."

Yeah,but we all know how slow DCAS is...what is taking so long? Is the eligibles list so long? Anyway the better question would be when does list #8006 begin....Exam #5025 has an eligibles list of 4,885...1,649 was the last number appointed before the hiring freeze. That list expires on Oct 31,2011. I have a feeling that the #8006 eligibles list will be at least double that.

so thaT`S 8,000 SUMTHING IF DOUBLED

 

That is only my guess Igor,you saw how long the lines were outside the schools. I hope I am wrong. I hope our list is under 5,000 as well. But I remember Chris saying that most people got between 6-12 wrong on the exam in 2006. So that means that the number of people who got between 90%-100% is small. I wish I could see that list(#5025). It should be online somewhere.

There are 3757 Eligibles on the list I just checked the hotline. I am right in the middle unfortunatley so i have a long wait. I took the Property Protection, Station Agent and Conductor exams and I already signed up for the Train Operator Exam.

Thanks for the update. Very small list indeed. I am a Mets fan but the Goose was one of my favorite relievers of all time,his rising fastball was a blur. I used to imitate his wind up and delivery as a kid playing stickball. Good luck on the T/O exam.

This is even a smaller list than the previous test. #5025 had 4886 eligible on the list...they are up to # 2795 being hired on that list.

More people failed than passed,that is how hard the exam was. It has taken roughly 2 years to reach #2795..#5025 list was established sometime in 07. It took Chris about 2 yrs since he took the exam in 06 to get hired(he was #825).

 

Anybody know how many B/0's were hired from that pool of #2795?

Igor,3,757 are on the #8006 list. I think you will get called for Mabstoa first,question is would you accept or decline? I know you want to work in Staten Island. Not sure if you can transfer to a TA depot in the future.

My first choice is going to be the depot over by Broadway Junction (Brooklyn) or the Jackie Gleason Depot in Sunset PArk. Is there parking for employees at all the depots?

There should be free parking for employees,outdoor is fine as long as it is in a secured lot. One would figure that you would choose the closest depot to where you live. Do bus depots have gyms and cafeterias?

 

They should let students tour some of bus depots on the inside to get a better feel but probably the best way to find out would be to ask other B/O's who work there.

What is your take on the fact that nyc transit bus operators don't live very long after they retire? Is there any truth to that or is that just from a small study. Breathing in diesel fumes from the buses? Stress?

I've never heard this before. T/O and C/R's this is true for though.
