    Given their specific target towards more women, a lot of women have been turned down at the first hurdle ! Next time will be a lot easier as you now know what to fill in etc, keep at it.

    I know of someone who’s been rejected, someone’s who’s waiting to hear and another who’s passed the lot and awaiting a medical so I assume it’s all still in the process but as usual, it’s just the lucky few that pass the sift.

    Freightliner Various Trainee Drivers
