Funnily enough just as you've posted this I've had an email from XC saying that they're interested in learning more about me and that I need to keep an eye on my emails in the next 2-4 weeks for updates.

Anyone else?

I just got it too from system administrator, just saying application received. Let's see what happens, good luck.

I’ve received the same email. I’m guessing most will. Seemed a very basic application. Uploading CV and cover letter. Next step will probably be the standard application questions.

Mee too, but I've had experience like this with another role and it sometimes goes way beyond 2 - 4 weeks.
I've also got a senior Conductor application in progress. Fingers crossed for either one.

They are recruiting for other roles which are ahead in priority over this one. There is only a small recruitment team, so you'll all need to be patient and sit tight.

Anyone have any experience of CrossCountrys recruitment process? There appears to be very little in the forum.
The ad stated 'The recruitment process will involve several factors, including a review of your application, some rules and safety tests, an assessment centre and a safety critical medical'

Just wondering what the 'rules and safety tests' would be like.

My limited understanding is that as this is an OPC test then yes any result whether better or worse would be over ridden hence why most advice on here is only to apply for one position if undertaking OPC assessments, once you have passed be it enhanced or standard then you can apply to your hearts content only held back by the TOCS own requirements, ie 6 months from rejection at DMI interview and length of time since testing, OZC say 5 years some TOCS only take 2 years before resetting tests.

Question is then.... Does anyone know the cross country HR contact number?
