    Hey Matty,

    Just saw your post about the interview - stay positive i'm sure you did great!

    If you don't mind me asking, roughly how many questions were asked? I'm just trying to plan approx how much time i will have to answer per question. Thank you! :)

      Thanks mate, fingers crossed.
      They ask a couple of brief questions about yourself and four competency based questions. They aren't difficult or hard to answer in any way, just don't put any more pressure on yourself than you need to. They want you to answer in STAR formation so the only prep you can really do is practice answering in that manner. Good luck

    Hi Amanda,
    I hope you and your family are safe.
    My brother's been shortlisted for Train Manager at St Pancras.
    The EMR website is very sketchy on info regarding the interview process and the different stages. I've looked over your previous posts but was hoping for more on your experience going through the interview processes.
    The best of luck to all your upcoming interview and hoping you stay safe.

      Hi there, it's good to hear from someone else starting in Rugby. I'm looking forward to getting started too, hoping training won't be delayed too long. Do you live in the Rugby area already?

      I live in northants, about 25 minute drive from the SCC, i work at Westwood in Coventry, my office is next door to a signalling training room. There is a lady there training to deliver the IST, we got talking and it looks like she will be delivering our training when she is qualified... at least that was the plan, things within NR training are changing by the day...

    Carrie let me know if you hear further news about the trainee driver talent pool and i will also let you know if i hear anything. probably a long wait for us now. they mentioned to me they hadn't taken on trainee drivers since 1994 so are expecting a lot of retirees soon and that its a ageing pool of drivers at plymouth and they wanted a younger work force.

    hi mate, would rather speak off the main forum about the interview just in case its read by whoever until i get in the talent pool or rejected.
    i felt the interview went well on the whole, a couple questions i could of answered better but overall i think i did fairly well. i have felt good about interviews before though and not got the job so trying not to get my hopes up. how about you ?

    Hi

    Hope you don't mind me messaging you direct, noticed you have a recent medical for a signaller

    My son has a medical next week for a signallers job, could i ask what the colour blind test was please?

    We think he has a minor colour vision deficiency, has no problem seeing colours in every day life but bit concerned he won't pass this part of the medical which would be devastating for him

    Thanks

    How do I download a video from my iPhone to put on rail forums?

      Hi,

      We don't have the facility to host videos as it would simply take up too much storage space for it to be practical for us to host large numbers of videos. So you'll need to use a third party website (such as YouTube though others are available) and then post a link on the Forum to the video.

      Thanks,

    Hi mate, did you manage to get a number for the HR team? I’ve completed my psychs back in November and want to double check whether or not I need to complete the RAAT test or not. Many thanks.
