Hello that was my diary that I had removed. It was removed as it will be popping up elsewhere sometime in the future. If you want to chat please feel free to pm me. I’m working pretty much everyday lol but will do my best to get back to you.
There is no more for Man Pic as far as I am aware. At least from my batch of interviews.
We are into our driving hours now.
I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more vacancies at some point though as it may be that a good few will be leaving in the next year.
It is extremely normal for you to be allocated ‘blocks’ where your Annual Leave is. As others have said it is not that bad and because you know quite fat in advance you can work out with other drivers swaps. I don’t think there is an issue with the amount of time off. By the time you factor in...
Do A levels count? One person on our course had A level certificates and they weren’t accepted? It’s so confusing lol.
To be fair they say an apprenticeship but I haven’t done anything at all other than the functional skills week at the beginning of the course. I have had two phone calls and...
Hello that was my Diary. I have removed it as I will be moving it elsewhere on a project of my own. Indeed if you cannot prove your GCSE results by way of certification you will be requested to complete a functional skills week for IT, Maths and English. It isn’t bad at all and if I can do it...
ATW used to do this back when it was. There was a telephone interview before being sent to the psychometrics.
Not sure if TfW have continued this. It seems a lot of TOCs are doing it now as an extra stage of filtration.
TPE do not honour the five years. I had completed them to enhanced 2 years and 2 days prior with Virgin Trains and I was asked to retake them as I was over the two year period.
I don’t wish on anyone to have to retake them again! It’s pretty nerve wracking!
As a driver (trainee) I am very impressed with the details on these photos @Jaz avalley . The ballast on that middle and last photo is crazy and as previously mentioned the weathering is spot on. I don’t normally come out of hiding from the careers area but I realise now I may of been missing...
Unfortunately the 5 years does not count for many TOCS anymore. Most accept 2-3 years before resitting them. Although I may be wrong!
They just started a guards course but not a new drivers course unless it’s somewhere other than the hub or Manchester Pic hotel like the last two groups.
Even better to be honest. I am doing my second lot of front end turns now and I can honestly say I will be doing this for the rest of my life.
The knowledge you require is something to be proud of and the sheer skill from my DI, knowing every little thing for hundreds of miles of line is...
