Also. Do they tell you you can give notice to your job when you get out of there?

And how strict are they about being there at 8:00. I may not get to leave my Job on Staten Island untli a little after 7. If I switch shifts, I will need to be at work at 2:30. I am trying to squeeze this in between.

Hell no,never have and never will drive a school bus,lol. I couldn't deal with the noise and abuse either. I am one of those people who cringe when I hear little kids screaming and acting up in a store. The only good thing are the short hours. Like Sir Charge said,I would be interested in driving a luxury coach bus,local only,not interstate like Greyhound. For a limo you need a TLC license,make good tips doing that.

Hi guys, we got our first checks today as newly appointed Sanitation Workers. Our base pay is $597.70 a week. For someone claiming no dependents here are the deductions:

Federal Tax: 74.66
Social Security 37.06
Medicare 8.67
State Tax 24.12
City Tax 14.96
Unions Dues $14.50

Total deductions: $173.97
Net pay: $423.73

They did not start taking out deductions for CDL training or our pension yet.

I quit the old job 2 days after final processing. I had a full 2 weeks to myself and lived off some vacation/sick time they paid out to me as well as the week they owed me the week i quit.

I would probably switch your shift to 2:30 to be on the safe side. We were done around 12:30-1pm. Hell, maybe you won't want to go back to the old job after you are finaized. lol

Default August Update!!!

I just got off the phone with someone at HR. He said they are up to 45X and they still have 25 more spots open for the August class. He said there not going to get up to me (667) but some of you lower number guys still have a shot. Just relaying what I was told. Congrats to the guys that got called already and started July's class. Good Luck to everyone.

**** like this now only because your in training. When you actually hit the districts & do various shifts/ holidays & Sundays, you'll see a lil difference. It will all pay off in the end.
