What depot had you applied for?
Good to know cheers. At least something is moving anyway!
I believe it was Tilbury
To those swimming in the pool for Birmingham, has anyone had any contact with Freightliner this year?
Hey all, I also was told that I had passed my stage 2 assessment and that they would pass my details to Freightliner, and they would contact me for a DMI. Still waiting to hear from them. Anyone have an idea of how long this could take?
My son passed both assessments in mid December (he applied for Tilbury), still waiting a DMI.
There are a number of us in this exact same boat. I was told on the 9th January that I had passed stage 2 and that my details had been passed to Freightliner. They would be in contact in a few weeks! I think the common theme on this thread is that things seem to move extremely slowly once the OPC element is done so I think it is very much a waiting game!
Is anybody on here already working for heavy haul?
pretty sure there’s still people from the pool waiting since 2018 for contact let alone this year! Could be a long wait, I would advise to keep looking elsewhere as myself and many others ended up getting jobs with other companies whilst waiting for freightliner
I can only imagine cause they are doing a recruitment drive with trainees at present they can only accommodate small number of trainees on the course.Had they taken everyone one at once there would be people standing about and not doing any thing.All I can suggest is be patient it is a waiting game.
Aaah, that's a different matter. Being paid to attend
Qualified driver with them
How do I PM someone on here!
It won’t let me make the response I want to!!
You probably haven’t posted enough on here to be able to PM somebody.
Should be able to after 20 posts? As far as I’m aware it was set to 5 posts or above to be able to PM?
Bear in mind not everyone actually realises they have a PM half the time lol
No word from anyone yet then?
Nothing for me
I was told there should be a course in April? Has anyone else heard of anything about April or more training courses?
Did they say what year? People have been waiting since summer 2018 for a course to materialise, me being one of them, I’ve since got another job with a TOC and been there over 12 months and still not heard anything from them. So in this case it’s worked out for the better for me but I’d keep my options open if I was you.
Where did you hear that? I have heard nothing. If there was a course in April you would probably know by now if you were on it. It takes time to do medicals, references etc. Also with the varying degrees of notice periods people serve, resignations would probably need to be handed in by next week.
been waiting for a course almost 18 months now. Hope you're right. But somehow doubt it. Too short notice to get stuff done for April now
Well, not true. First course started with 5 weeks notice
Has anybody on here had a DMI recently, is it similar to the MMI or is it more of a standard formal interview ?
Dmi much less intense, it's a normal job interview
Thanks mate, just trying to be prepared for whatever they might ask me.
Company basics, what they do, where they go, traction used, employee numbers etc. Ownership, anything in the news, safety, looking out for each other etc etc etc
