Sorry to bother you and do apologise for dropping by.
I have been reading the Avanti thread closely too and saw your post. Is it possible to Pm me the roster too and earliest start and later finish timings for Euston if possible.
I would really appreciate that.
Sorry to interrupt. Making me think too now. This is some great information. Just to add some more question to that if you don’t mind. Do they have any Taxi/Lodge arrangements for very early starts or very late finishes.
Would greatly appreciate your reply. Thank you
I am about to start as a trainee train driver next month. Unfortunately, southeastern doesn't give parking permit to trainees. As I live in Essex, I have no other option other than use my car. I did spoke to recruitment and was advised to have a chat with my manager when I start...
Big congratulations coxie. I believe you will be starting from 6th July. If so, see you there :).
You should get your contract offer pretty soon. No car parking facilities for trainees in the training centre I am afraid. You get a temporary travelcard for SE trains only though. Well good luck...
First of all I would like to thank each and every individual who took their time and responded. This forum has been the backbone for my success.
I got my contract offer from SE yesterday which I will be accepting it. I also had given the interview for GTR which I did pass. I went for the...
At last... applied in 2013, passed the test in august 2014, passed my DM interview last month and medical last week. Now just waiting for the contract details ..Course starts in July 2015 :)
Thank you guys for your help :D
Same as stated by l0cOmotive, plus there are some extras:
1st stage : situation judgement test (SJT), driver fault finding test (DFFT)
2nd stage : Visual search exercise (VSE), Multi modal interview (MMI)
I believe it's for thameslink. If yes then your friend is correct. It's just common sense really. Similar to how do you hill start your car.
As everyone says, maximum preparation for company and its related information. Also lots of examples.
Good luck. Be calm and relaxed.
Thanks guys for the response. Very helpful.
Apologies if I may have confused anyone. Well the topic was GTR or SE just to know the positives and negatives.
Also, my question was whether I should attend the interview with GTR?
Thanks everyone. Might call GTR to withdraw my application then.
As HLE said about commute, even during my interview the managers did told me that if any incident occurs, your commute is also taken into account. So thanks for reminding me again :)
Hi guys. Need your help. I have already been offered a trainee driver job with southeastern starting in July pending medical which I am not worried about.
I have also been invited for a managers interview with GTR. I am a bit confused as to attend this interview or not.
Both companies have...
Hi 1stch0ice, first of all many congrats.
Just wanted to ask whether southeastern DM interview consist of any competency based questions or are they like about why train driver, about the company, about yourself etc. Got the interview coming up.
I'm not sure about the time, but it could be 30s to 1 min per page. Just keep practising and you should be alright.
And you are right about the tea-occ. symbols and some low frequency sounds.
Good luck and do you best.
Hi sigerbil, the instructions and examples for each of the test takes time.. Hence 3 hrs.
--- old post above --- --- new post below ---
I believe it's 1-2 mins, no more than that. Can't remember properly. But it's paper ones and I felt easier than the computer ones.
Hi cabbie1, just called HR and they said that the previous tests are valid but still need to attend the assessment day to give one or two tests which are not done by other TOC. The assessor will confirm on which test to give on that day.
