    Hey Guy's the list is official, I just got my letter in the mail. It came from NYC Transit 180 Livingston Personal Testing and Selection Unit. Its says list was established on on 7/31/2019 and my score and list number are the same from the Civil Service List NYC open data link posted a few pages back.

    Looks like the wheels are in motion guys just hope I get called, scored a 96.25 with list 20XX.

    I believe the scores & list numbers will be the same as generated. Only way they will change is if people did not have their military points added. about 99% of the time I see my score & List number on the DCAS Data system it doesn't change and I get the letter in the mail with the same list number.

    yup, i was called by another agency and love it here, so definitely not processing if and when they do decide to start, good luck everyone.

    As other have mentioned, the test was 4 years ago. A lot of people have gotten employed by other agencies (and are probably well off probation, and nearing top pay). And people not knowing it’s a LE job and so on. It would be great for me since my time/pension with my current job will carry over up front, so if called I’m going. Lol

    It does appear that a lot of people scored well on the exam. It's almost as bad as the last sanitation exam where you got in the 90s but your list # is almost 35,000. Good thing about this test is the process to get hired is much harder. A lot of people are not willing to drop from their current salary especially those making over 100k a year. Then you have the group of eligibles that do not want to give up the seniority at their current job. Summer vacation, 5 weeks vacation, ability to pick any shift and job they want. So hopefully most of us willing to accept these changes will get the opportunity to at least process for the job.

    I don't think anyone is more annoyed than me! Since 2015 just trying to get information has been like a full time job. NYCTA examinations unit said they just administered the test and to call DCAS who said they have nothing to do with giving civil service test for the MTA and directed us to call Bridges and Tunnels who said they didn't give the exam and we should contact NYCTA exams unit. A few months ago NYCTA exams unit said that our scores and list # would be sent to us but NOT by DCAS and that DCAS is not going to be involved with this process but they are just going to hold the list. So after I checked the automated system and heard 5606 in there I called DCAS to speak to a live person and when I asked him who was going to be sending out the info and he said DCAS. He then went on to say that he doesn't know why the NYCTA exams unit would say that. I'm glad that progress is being made but I'm sure many of us will remain on the edge of our seats until they start calling people for the orientation.

    You have to remember in 03 they had a low salary plus the job was still new. Now it will be more difficult to get in depending on how many people they need to hire for posts and how many people retire.

    Hopefully they start processing soon and put a class in even if it’s a small class of 50-100.

    CO Hopeful with more words of wisdom, the job in 2003 compared to the job today is like comparing apples to footballs. Truth is we could look to get down to 0 names or 500 or 1,000 or 5,000. It all depends on the headcount. Right now we’re putting out roughly 3 cars at a bridge on a tour and the previous tour stuck for doubles each day. Tunnels have additional posts which means even more OT. Highway is depleted to almost nothing, along with 200 Officers deployed daily throughout NYC to patrol the buses. Factor in the mass exodus starting this November, they are going to need a lot of people. Not to mention 5 years since the exam means thousands will probably no longer want the job or can’t take the job or even pass the hiring process.

    Hey guys , here is some food for thought . On the 03 exam they only got up to the 1400’s as far as list #’s and that took 4 years and remember they are not gonna hire as many today because there is less of a need for tbta officers so
    if you are in the top 500 I think you have a shot at getting called the rest of us are finished .

    It'll get there. As CloudPuncher said, half the people who even showed up for the exam didnt know this was a law enforcement career. Weed out all of them already. Another half or more will not pass physical and/or background checks. Also, I know a couple people who are now DOC, NYPD, parks police, etc. who took this exam but wouldnt take the job now. Not everyone can do the pay cut/start over.
    I'm doing $110k+ now in my current title. Williing to take a pay cut for TBTA.
    I am willing to take a pay cut as well. Been waiting for this exam for a while. I got called for sanitation as well but I really want a good law enforcement career. I don't think the list will go so low because currently the agency has about 1000 officers. It all depends on the needs of the department and who is retiring. I just wonder when will they start sending canvas letters out.
