Congratulations Jonnyboy, good luck with training. Out of interest, where abouts do you currently live?

Is anybody else who requested feedback still being ignored?

I sent an email asking a few questions rather than feedback but haven't heard back from them. That was a couple of weeks ago now

I got asked if I could drive, how many driving lessons I'd had and whether I passed the driving test first time or not.

Yes, so did I.

What about your opinion of unions and management in the railways?

Yes to that too. I suppose in hindsight, knowing how heavily unionised the railway is, me saying that I don't much care for unions as they are happy to take the money but have never done anything for me didn't go down too well.
(Well, they did say be honest and don't just tell us the things you think we want to hear).

I finally got my feedback yesterday. Apparently I lack confidence and there were a number of areas where I scored 2 (little evidence) within the answer, these areas were flexibility, customer focus, decision making and judgement.

I found that somewhat disconcerting having already passed GTR's DMI and taking into account my former military and Police careers, with the exception of customer focus, if I lacked in the other areas, I'd expect either to have had the sack or worst case, to be dead !

Anyway, it's done now, time to move on.
