Those who passed Conductor Exam #8094

Recommended Posts

Nobody in my class left. Although on the very last day of class, we did have someone who switched to track worker since he happened to get called that day.

Maybe some people get depressed after a while of hearing steel squeezing and grinding upon steel in dark cold alleys surrounded by people who don't give a dam about you. Couple that with the fact that your personal life will suffer and you seemingly have no time off as its spent resting and catching up, even when you manage, half the time its on odd hours. Then maybe half your colleagues dont have anything to conversate about except maybe job related jargon. Its definately a different life, least that's the impression I get.

 

It's just like being an EMT or a Paramedic.

High or low 800's? I'm at the mid-high end of the 900's but I have holiday plans with the family so there's a chance I might not be around when the letter comes in.

Yes that is definately progress. I personally find 8094 moving along quite nicely. Its on pace to definately go over 2000 call ups.

Now there will be monthly groups of 20 (split to 2 groups of 10 of course) for the following few months after the December class IIRC. I think they typically send the first letter to double to triple the amount of people they need for each class, so if that trend continues, #1000 would be starting the pre-hiring process by February.

 

Holy crap, I need to start looking for my diploma.

Low 900's? How low?

 

At least I can go see my family for the holidays with peace of mind. I hope they didn't freeze the list again like over the summer...

HAHA! Thats funny.

Well frankly speaking, this isn't Colorado. Trees are still illegal in this state and county, so it's likely Transit will be testing for it along with other illegal substances. It's impossible to tell when you will be called up, it really is. With that said, you should probably quit now to help avoid any complication during your medical exam.

 

Even during employment the MTA sends you for medical testing once or twice a year I believe.
