Since it's your round it'll probably be a hot chocolate
Is there many people waiting for oxford do you know?, had a look on this forum but hard to tell!!
Hopefully if we can at least get everyone on this forum who is waiting on this thread we have an idea of how many for each depot.
It’s a start at least!!
That’s a crazy long wait mate!! You must be going a little mad!!
The updates on the rest of the process is by email. Is it a phone call when you are lucky enough to be contacted about a conditional start date?
Yep. But it then reverts to email
Cheers ttt. I can stop constantly checking my emails for the next 6 months now
You’ll still check your emails
As I’ve said before, don’t assume it’ll be a long wait.....you might be surprised.
I’m not sure, I did have a look around the forum as well but it’s really unclear how many people were in the pool.
I personal don’t think it’s that many (in the pool) because I had my DMI in March then had a conditional offer at the end of March.
That's sounds quite promising then!
Have a word and sort it out for me when you start
Are you internal candidate mate?
Yes, just a tad
No I’m external, I’m currently in a completely different industry.
Ahh right, so that DMI to formal is really quick then.
You should pick a couple of lines on the lottery.......
So I just received a call offering me a course at the end of August. Slight problem in that I have a holiday booked in September and you can’t take any leave in the first 19 weeks!
I might of miss read that but are you saying they called you today?
Yeah just phoned me, on a Sunday evening!!!
Good news them mate but yeah shame about the holiday!
Well not sure mate cos we’ve paid a lot of money for the holiday. I am going to see if they would let me move the holiday until early next year.
If that doesn’t work then I’ll have to stay in the talent pool and wait for the next opportunity.
Yeah I’m in the same boat although I don’t expect a call for a few weeks so hopefully won’t effect mine!
Well done..... Wowww... Sunday night..great end to your weekend
Haha, I’m not usually that lucky, but this is good news, congrats! Was the call from a mobile number (mine was)? I can only imagine they take their work home with them sometimes, as I can’t see recruitment being anything other than a standard 9-5 Monday/Friday type job ordinarily?
It’s a shame about the holiday, when did you book it? It’s tricky because 19-weeks is a long time, especially through the summer when a lot of people book holidays. I didn’t book a holiday this year....no particular reason, but it worked out well. I’ll still be away through the whole of the summer holidays and will miss my eldest’s birthday. It’s one of those things that you have to weigh up unfortunately.
Best of luck though, hope you can sort something out!
Congratulations mate. Hopefully they will be ok with you having your holiday early next year.
Are you SWR or GWR?
Yeah it was a mobile number, and I thought the same they must work from home on a flexible pattern.
Nice surprise but it has caused me a headache. We have placed a large deposit on a luxury house in Cornwall for a couple of weeks. Losing the deposit and the holiday is not an option. This leaves me pleading with the booking agent about moving the slot until next year.
It’s Sod’s law because if it had been a Month later the holiday would have been and gone.
Thank you, nice surprise....if I can sort out my holiday!
Thanks mate fingers crossed!
This is for GWR at Exeter St David’s
Did they not give you the option of another course date or just say you will be put back in the pool?
No just said that I would be placed back in the talent pool. It would be a shame as this course is in Newton Abbot which is the closest training centre for me. Any other offers could be at other training centres.
I’m sure it will work out one way or another!
