    Agreed especially when I hear 50% fail it

    Not really. I’ve done my share amount of physical test for different police departments. Some departments require you to bench press your own body weight. Some make you stretch past your toes. MTA uses the basic cooper standard test.

    In my opinion NJ has the best physical test because it’s based on points. You might not be a good runner but have good upper body, and core strength. Port authority and NJ state troopers use this physical Exam chart. You can go on their website and see more details regarding their physical exam.

    If you are attending the physical test next weekend. Good luck and give it your all!!!

    It's about the size of a clenched fist, guessing it's 3 or 4 inches.

    Just go all the way down with chest touching the flr and all the way up elbows lock straight no halfway. To prepare yourself.

    Anyone know how big the object is they put under your chest for the pushups ? Just so I can practice as close as I can to the actual test?

    It's unknown right now, but probably. There is no freeze on processing necessarily just hiring. I'm guessing that they will be processed and will be ready to go when this gets lifted, but I don't know for sure. It will be a relatively small group of people and more will be needed.

    Stay motivated and stay in shape.

    So for the ones who are testing next weekend, will they continue through the process?

    If this is true, why did they send out invitations for the physical fitness exam?

    Will the MTA’s 10 billion COVID deficit have an affect on the governors agreed upon budget to hire 500 MTAPD cops?

    NYPD has been losing officers/cops since the beginning of time...to FDNY, MTAPD, PAPD, Nassau, Suffolk, State Trooper...so what difference does it make? Plenty of cops ready to jump ship for more money/pay and better quality of life...
