Answer Key for Exam #8094

Recommended Posts

Guest battieboi
It would be cool if people post the question numbers that they got wrong and the test session that they took it on that way we all have an idea of what possibly can be changed during the protest period. for example i took the test on the PM session which was session 2 and i got # 64 and #65 wrong. anyone else got these wrong on session 2 (the PM session?).

 

the one's i got wrong and my answers are # 26a,56b,64b anyone else got those wrong ??? this would be the evening session 7 pm

Each year of college counts as one year of full time work experience. The MTA will only give you credit for up to 4 years of college. Right now with your two years of college, you would need 3 years of full time work experience on top of the two years of college you already have. The work experience doesn't have to be transit oriented. They just want to see that you are good at keeping a job.

Sorry, you could only get the MTA to count the two years of your college. I doubt any employer would accept of the book jobs. Also it has to be full time work. Not part time. Also, you getting called before December 2009 is not happening. The current hiring list for C/R expires in September 2009. After that the new promotional list will go into effect as the hiring list. Once everyone in the promotional list has been hired, the open competitive list will go into effect. You are going to be waiting a few years at minimum.

The MTA don't count jobs off the books but lucky you don't need that for the C/R position. You won't get the job by Dec 09 not even close add 2 years to it with your score.

If the job is so incredibly easy than why does it take 6 months of school? And for the past few years even after 6 months alot of the T/O's aren't capable of doing the job safely and have to be sent back for more training.

 

If you have held down full time work for at least 5 years you are somewhat responsible. That's what they are looking for in such a safety sensetive title.

Some people just require more trainning, and some pick it up quickly. Just like the young man who takes trains for the joy of it, I'm quite sure he did not go through 6 months of training but he was still able to drive that train reather well.

There are more than just red lights. You have signals with different meanings, timed signals, posted signs along the wall indicating different rules, procedures. You have rules and regulations you need to memorize, safety regulations. Remember, you can easily be having 1,000+ lives on your hand. You need to know how to do your job well.

In all the articles I've read about Darius McCollum I've never seen any that mentioned his operation. Just that he's stolen trains and buses before.

I heard something to the effect that the MTA was not getting enough qualified canidates

from within so that's why they started with the O/C exam. Again thats what I heard.....

If they cant find qualified people from within how much better could they do using people off the street who have no idea how the system works? That must explain why they are blasting through the o/c list.

Does anyone know exactly why did the mta make an o/c exam for t/o for the first time in 2000 anyway, i was always curious?

 

There are a couple of reasons. One is with somebody off of the open competetive test the MTA has all of the leverage. With a promotional person they can at any time say I've had it I'm going back to my old title, if they feel that they aren't being treated professionally.

 

Another reason is that the MTA was trying to get more white people. Whites are very willing to take the T/O job because it starts out paying well and you have very little interaction with the scum that the C/R's deal with everyday. Most whites are NOT willing to take the C/R, cleaner, or clerk jobs where you start out making very little money for 3-5 years and have to deal with the public everyday.

 

A third reason is that the MTA is trying to brain wash there new employees to be terrified of losing there jobs if they don't rat out there partners or other employees for every tiny offense. Again with a promotional they already know how the system works and they have the comfort of having a title to fall back on.

 

The not getting enough qualified people from within is true to a point because alot of C/R's take the promotion and then go back to C/R within the first year because they are able to get better days off and jobs. The title of T/O is one of the slowest seniority moving titles in the TA. No weekends off for over 10 years no holidays off for even longer.

I think I recall discussions about Darius before talking about his train operation which was full of overruns, BIE's, and other screw ups. Far from SAFE operating.
