For internal applicants I guess it's easy, but how are some of you outsiders getting days off for all the tests? I'm struggling to come up with reasons to take time off, I don't have any holiday left and each job application takes a rather long time with multiple visits at random days for different tests then interviews. The standard is high and I can't seem to get past the last interview stage, I apply for another position and go through the process again each time costing me around 2/3 days off work. I have 2 in progress and passed the online tests. I am hopeful but again this could be another 6 days off my current job. I guess if I get one of the jobs it all pays off but I Just wondered how others were managing? I want to work on the railway and don't want to give up, but not at the cost of getting the sack at my current job for a job I may never get on the railway.
