    Hi all passed my online assessments back in Nov 2018, second assessments booked for 21st October, any advice on what to expect would be appreciated. Thanks.

    All new entrants at Pad will now go through HeX, and then progress from HeX to GWR mainline.

    Just had an email from GWR following my DMI interview, im pleased to hear that I'm in the talent pool for Gloucester. Slightly worryingly the email states people will be placed in order of performance at interview, so I could have quite a wait.
    Congratulations to everyone who made it.

    Congratulations mate. That email is a generic email so I wouldn’t worry too much about that :)

    Hah I felt a bit nervous and didn't deliver the polished interview I had imagined I would so I'm more likely going to have a long wait!

    I thought exactly the same and four months later I have a course date so don’t think to much into it!

    There is no PT&R agreement from HEX to GWR, the unions rejected it because the company wanted to backfill GWR vacancies through HEX, which would've undercut the GWR wide pay harmonisation deal

    For some reason, I seem to remember a post saying it’s been over a year for you.? There’s hope for me still then. 6 & half months and counting for me so far. CONGRATS to you.!

    Well over a year mate, may 22nd last year was my DMI. I had sort of given up hope.

    Will relax once medical is booked and course date set. HR woman said she will call tomorrow so fingers crossed.

    I had sort of given up hope and just agreed on a new position in my current job which is due to start in a few weeks but this trumps that by far.

    Looking forward to it

    Thanks guys

    I think it’s been said on here before but how soon do you get medical results or is it on the same day you get told?!

    From what I have read on here, other than the Drug/alcohol test you will know if you are good or not, then you will receive your formal offer a few weeks later.

    You will indeed know on the day pending D&A test results. You won’t be told you have passed the D&A test, but will simply receive a formal offer. You’ll only be informed if there’s an issue, which I’m sure there won’t be.
