Those who passed Conductor Exam #8094

Recommended Posts

How long ago was this?

Now I am not going to start an argument, but why try to virtually destroy this thread?

 

Who is that?

Is there any reason you're getting so defensive all of a sudden?

I heard the R179's and R188's are being designed with cribs in the cabs of the trains. :P

 

I hope no one at NYCT takes offense to that. The :cry:-babies here at Brooklyn Forestry go through more pacifiers and diapers than ear plugs and gloves.

Ugh, the candyass schoolyard babycrap where I am is terrible. People piss and moan about everything: "I'm not working in that district today - too many eyes over there," "I'm not working with him. He doesn't stop for breakfast," and my favorite: "I'm not doing (S)(H)I(T) today. I'm tired."

 

It's ridiculous.

Hey I like girls, but trains are oh just so pretty. There's nothing like meeting a train and saying "my place, or you?!" A woman can't make express stops.

 

Yes they can. They can be with one dude, then skip you and go to the next.

That's not defensive, I just gave advice & asked a question.

while there is little we can do to help our chances of getting hired, the phrase "we can't do anything" is no longer valid. there is a petition from The Working Families Party, which can be found as a link from the Local 100 website to get MTA chief Jay Walder to use stimulus money to fill the gap in the (MTA) budget. i know, online petitions are like toilet paper. but won't it be fun to get the 5,000 signatures and see what happens? :)

I just spoke to my source, and the April Conductor class has been canceled, they are still at 112 on the list and all RTO hiring is canceled until further notice.

according to civil service law if there's a freeze, they can extend the list past 4 years. is this an official "freeze"?

 

She didn't say the word freeze, she just said all RTO hiring is canceled. Either way if there is a freeze or not, the only open competatve list people that are affected as far as I know are the 2003 Train Operator test people if they are waiting since that doesn't expire until October. The conductor is still promotional, so the 4 years on the c/r o/c has not begun yet. That will be 4 years when ever it starts. She also said, there are no scheduled conductor classes right now, and none planned, so it could be a while, especially if the MTA has a shortfall in 2011 as well, which they probably will.

hehehe i didnt take the conductor test, i took the train operator test. maybe all classes can be canceled until october and then when they do start hiring they'll fly through the promotional (2009 exam) due to being backed up B). i know, i have a twisted mind but i will always hope for the best no matter what the downers say!!!

Damn that sucks. I'm 282 on the list and I was hoping they call me this summer.

Sorry Pablo thats impossible. The promotional list still has to be called and that will take at least 2 more years. I would guess maybe the summer of 2013

Not to negate anyone's "sources", but didn't a TSS on here that works with schoolcar say not so long ago that there was still a full calendar of C/R classes for 2010? It wouldn't surprise me if less are hired, but they can't suspend hiring indefinitely.

Not very related, but just curious:

 

They hire CRs to fill the spots of retired/fired ones. What happens to those spots before the hiring takes place? Or do they hire CRs "just in case on of the regular ones quits"?

I would think those on the extra list and extra-extras would be assigned to those jobs.

Yup, just throwing that out there about those who actually do know what they're talking about.

Whatever. You weren't one of my targets to inform anyway. I'm not going to waste my time addressing you any further. Enjoy the dark, since you like being in it.
