Cheers all for clearing that up. I just assumed they contacted you to confirm all was good.
Just spoke to HR, all is good just got to wait for the formal offer.
@tiptoptaff thank you for information. Also ‘willy waving’ got me laughing .
Maybe that'll be the course motto #waveyourwilly
Please don’t assume my identity
So I assume it is a case of no news is good news in terms of medical results?
So THAT's why you were walking funny last week
Did you say you are starting at Bristol ttt? I’m trying to work out if I know you
I am indeed, are you current West crew? If so, you'll know me, even if you don't realise!
I used to be west but I’ve been on HSS for about 2 1/2 years now.
I've been here for about that long, Nov2016. On the same desk as FZ, TT, IW et al
Well that is concerning
Yeah. Looking forward to the formal offer now .
Well, just received my offer letter via email. I assume a human pushed a button yesterday as I wasn't expecting anything over the weekend? It's becoming more real now!
Congratulations buddy. Every step closer makes it feel more real, was the contract attached for you to read and sign?
Cheers mate, and agreed....I still couldn’t quite believe it’s happened so fast. Less than a year ago I’d only just applied for the process with Freightliner and in that time I’ve done the assessments and had three DMIs
I had to accept and sign the offer electronically and they said I’ll receive the contract through the post to sign and return a copy of. The letter strangely still outlines the offer is subject to the receiving satisfactory medical results and DBS etc, which I assume they already have otherwise they’d not send the offer? (The DBS came back as I requested a certificate too). Probably just to cover themselves.
They also mentioned filling out a uniform request? I get the impression it’s just an old letter template and their processes have changed (hence the uniform thing)....it also refers to them as ‘FGW’ in one place too.
Yeah that must be an old template they haven’t updated yet. Maybe the process was different before this recruitment phrase? ♂️
I will let you know when I get my email and see if it’s the same.
Yes please do.
No willywaving Stigy
Haha, but I have mine too as
Good news! Are you external? We were trying to work out their method in sending the letters or if it’s just random.
Im First Group internal but not GWR internal. I dont think it matters when it comes to sending out the offers of employment really. Its all good
Congratulations to you all. If you don’t mind me asking does the offer confirm the starting salary? Just trying to sort out my own financial plans.
Same for me then, coming from SWR.
There is a lot of willy waving going on here hahaha!
I’m external to the First Group so maybe that’s why I’m not so lucky today.
Internal (GWR) staff haven't had anything either. Doesn't seem to be a pattern
Oh ok, do you know if the same recruitment person is looking after the trainees going into positions(for GWR)?
It's all one small team. Two of them handling it I think
Oh right. Ok cheers for the information.
Got my email today. Pretty much the same as yours, with the letter stating about subject to the results of the DBS and so on.
