    Didnt pass the Interviews.

    Hi anonymous0101 I have applied recently for a trainee conductor with FSR at Dumfries and was unsuccesful at interview. I know that the conductor assessment is slightly different than the driver one, as no reaction test. I do not have to wait 6 months to apply for a trainee driver position...

    Didnt pass the Interviews.

    How many times can you take the trainee driver assessment if you keep passing that part? I know if you fail twice then it's the end. If you fail at interview, but pass the assessment, is there a limit on applying?

    Becoming a train driver

    Hi All I know that if you fail the trainee driver assessment twice, then forget about a career as a train driver, but what happens in the scenario when you pass the assessment twice and then are unsuccessful at interview or the company you have applied to decides it no longer needs anyone...

    Thank you once again Carter. Are you a driver or conductor? Do you fancy trying for driver grade if not already one?

    Southern Conductor Assessment Help!!

    Hello Navydavy Good Luck with your upcoming assessment. I too have one on shortly with Scotrail for a conductor. Let me know how things progress. Mine's is a few days before yours so I will tell you what happens in it, although a different TOC I would think the tests will be broadly similar.

    scotrail jobs

    Hello CarterUSM Thanks for the PM. I would, if I am succesful in getting the position at Dumfries, possibly consider becoming a trainee driver also at some stage. I would certainly relocate if I had to. Is there a certain length of service I would have to complete before applying for a...

    Conductor job with Northern Rail

    Hello Herdster Yes, I think I posted something on that thread. How are things going? As I recall they did not want someone until later on in the year (or something). What part of the country are you in & how is the search going? PM me if you like.

    Conductor job with Northern Rail

    It has been about 6 weeks since I applied, but I can't remember the closing date. I also applied online to Virgin for a fixed term 6 month on-board CA and have heard nothing either, so applied to Scotrail as a conductor a day or two ago. From what I have read on the forums TOCs are notorious...

    Trainee Drivers at Southern

    It does sound rather high Flyboy, but it must be a few quid. £20k(ish) wages while training plus NI contributions the company makes on your behalf. A portion of the wages that the trainer gets paid e.g. their wages divided by number in class. Cost of recruiting in the first place...

    First Scotrail trainee conductor

    Thanks CarterUSM The job is at one of the more rural locations, and there is no restriction on radius (I live about 35 mile away). Would it be a 4 day week? Do Scotrail provide accomodation while you train in Glasgow (for 7 weeks I believe)?:cool:

    First Scotrail trainee conductor

    Does anyone know where the training takes place with Scotrail? Are the weekly avg. hours 35/ 4 days like most train driving jobs? Would I need to live within a certain radius like Northern Rail? What is Scotrail like as an employer? I am sure some readers will know all the answers or...
