I took the exam, which was described by the MTA as "open competitive" which means you don't need any prior experience in the field. I paid for this exam, just like every other nyc job, studies and got a score of 93.5. The exam was in June 2009, July 2010 I get a letter from the MTA that I am disqualified from the job because I don't have any relative experience. I can't describe to you how mutha&*^%$ pissed I am. I was wondering if anyone here had a similar experience with this exam or any other city exam.

Did you call DCAS? I'll ask some of my buddies who took the exam/have experience with these civil service exams why you could've been disqualified.

Like you said, on paper you shouldn't have been because the point of an Open Competitive exam is to get people this particular job even if they don't have experience. They would've trained you if you were called to attend School Car.

I called them and they said whatever the letter states, is the final word. Its so frustrating. That's $60 down the toilet, not to mention the 3or 4 hours I took. That's some bullshhhhhh. NYC is getting more and more difficult to live in.
