Good Afternoon everyone. I have some questions regarding employment with the MTA Metro North Railroad. I been applying for several years (around 2010 or 2011). I know from previous threads, that someone asked about the “my application status”. My question is that some of my applications have a pass pre-screening which I applied to several years ago. I’m wondering if anyone would be able to give me more information?

The second question is that in all the years that I been applying, I never heard anything one way or another whether I would proceed in hiring process or was rejected. My late father, with whom I share the same first and last name and mailing address was employed with the MTA Metro North until his death in 2012. From time to time, I receive information with regards to benefits. My question, is there a possibility that my application is being mistaken for my late father or even a current employee ( as I indicate in the application that I’m not a current employee).

Thank you in advance for all your help

** Lauriaj** I have been applying for 8 years and just recently finally got an email for an interview.I also thought maybe i was getting mixed up with my 2 brother.One is a conductor and the other works for the port authority who happens to have some negative things on his background.I say hang in there or keep calling the MTA Bussiness Service line to get answers.


So for me,i was just notified about scheduling an interview for T&S Tinsmith.I have a few questions.What does “T&S” stand for? This position is considered a “sheetmetal/tinsmith” position,so i just figured thats what T&S stood for or is that incorrect? Also,with this position does anyone happen to know or know anyone who has been through the interview and practical testing? Im sure i can figure out the interview,but was hoping to get ahead of the game and find out what is actually involved in the practical skills test for sheetmetal worker/tinsmith.Anything would help! Thanks everyone!

Hello everyone. I was fortunate enough to have been invited to take the Conductor exam for MNR. I 100% know I nailed everything I needed to study for as far as terms and indications, however, I wasn’t able to finish the math portion in time. Will this disqualify me from consideration? Like I said, everything else I know I did really well on. Thanks for the input.

So i applied and went through the entire hiring process for the Tinsmith/Structures.I completed everything that was asked and filled out everything they needed.Interview,physical & drug test all done.Im basically at the waiting stage.Anyone know how long it takes after you have completed everything? I was told by a few current employees if you make it that far you are basically hired.Its been about 2 weeks since i last heard from the recruiter.Do i just wait this out or give it another week or 2 and then call my recruiter and see whats up? I was also told the recruiter will play dumb and say they will contact you soon.
