    Many congrats, and best of luck at assessment! Do you mind me asking where you live, and on what date you submitted your application? Thanks!

    I applied for the role on the 7 December and haven't heard back from them. Maybe I'm just a little unlucky, as i have passed the tests last time.
    Also from east London.

    I went for the crossrail, but the test will be similar i guess:
    Group bourdon
    Hazard perception
    Situational (multiple choice)
    2 hand
    Fault finding
    Hearing test, this was the hardest test as you have to count bleeps while they play other sound).
    MMI

    There was 30 candidates at the start, and after the first test 24 went home. Those tests were super hard...

    Good luck

    Yes, had to do the reaction test too. They do ask a lot for these roles but i guess they pay well. Also you have to be cautious with these companies as the waiting times can be very long and the post may disappear.

    Can someone post the job description and specification if they have it please i cannot find it anywhere online.

    What was the training salary, first year salary, and the final salary?

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S LOROL/ARRIVA are one of the worst companies when it comes to replying back to applicants... from my experience with them if you haven't heard anything...well you get the picture...their funny.

    Sorry, I didn't take a copy of this when I applied, and it doesn't seem to be published in either of the public or applicant areas of the ARL website...

    Nothing, no response... May have to face the fact I was not successful.

    However, there will be other opportunities.

    Haven't heard nothing, but pretty sure that doesn't mean I'm unsuccessful

    I've passed everything with an enhanced pass last year so was wondering if the delay was due to them wanting to get the assessments out of the way first ..... you can only live and hope
