    Well done Dan. I'm in HEX talent pool as well. Did they say anything about upcoming courses that they're trying to fill?

    They didn’t specifically mention any upcoming courses. I forgot to ask at the end as well annoyingly!

    Thanks!

    Oddly I've just noticed that the application no longer reads 'Talent Pool' or whatever it was, but is now 'Trainee Train Driver (HEX)' which I'm guessing is Heathrow Express. Has anyone else that applied for Paddington had the same happen?

    The email I've received today does say talent pool though. Odd

    The vacancy number and link I used for Central stations now comes up as BTM now so they can change I'm assuming

    Mine did that. When I passed my DMI it changed to an actual vacancy instead of talent pool. I start in October :D:D:D

    Cheers... they couldn't give me any idea of an DMI date but to be honest I've waited since last October so little longer won't be a big deal!

    Thank you.

    I was asked 6 questions which is the same for everyone I believe. I can't remember the exact wording of the questions but they included describe a time when 'you've done similar role to a train driver', 'have had to work hard to achieve something', 'had to follow rules and procedures' and so on. I got told at the end of the interview that I had passed which was followed up by an email, but I think it varies by TOC.

    Hello all, long time lurker and first time poster. I've got my DMI next week can anyone shed any light on the type of questions I might get asked. I managed to find some really great examples on here for my MMI but have struggled for the DMi questions. Any help/guidance will be greatly recieved!
