I believe isn't because is also confirming something on a Friday...inviting someone for an assessment day after few days...as I have said, I don't know but I think is may be a different application he's referring to
Thanks Aivilo. Took your advice and passed the numerical test. I then did the verbal today which was hard and I didn't manage to answer all the questions. I also scored badly in the practice. My application is now under review so I guess it's a waiting game now..Have you checked your bulk mail?
If the message is on the careers page with your application then do the tests. As you have stated they give you 48 hours to do so.
You will have some practice question which you can run through as many times as you want.Thanks Aivilo took your advice and did the numerical test which I passed. Then took the verbal which I found pretty tough. Didn't manage to answer all the questions. I guess it's just a waiting game now..
I wouldn't personally pass up the opportunity
Providing we've been successful it should be an invitation to one of Northern Rail's assessment days, set up very much like knockout stages. You'll be taken through a bit of role play i think, ticket checking and selling exercises, the Group Bourdon & SCAAT tests. If you're unsuccessful at any point they take you aside and you're asked to leave. Good i suppose, it would be gutting to sit through the whole day only to find out you had failed the first part if all is successful you will then have a structured interview with the assessor and a manager, get through that and then i think there is one more interview with a conductor manager.
Just heard back regarding the Piccadilly vacancy this morning. Received the good news that I have passed and due to start in January, subject to the medical of course. Anybody else heard back from Northern regarding this vacancy?
Never one to ask but interview questions would help. Assume they're similar across the board and a friend has an interview for gateline and conductor coming up.
got my online assessments to do with Northern for the Trainee Conductor role at Middlesbrough.
these seem a bit tough!
Sadly i failed the numerical test,so my application will not be processed.got to wait another six months.I find it a bit odd to undertake these as my SCAAT and RAAT are still in date.Each TOC to their own I guess when it comes to recruitment.
Best of Luck with yours!
All the best!
Thanks for the info, I cant wait to get started in January. Just a few questions for you if it's no bother?
Firstly, is the training 9-5 Monday-Friday, or does it run as your shifts would?
Secondly, what is the pay for Sunday shifts? Normal time? Or is there a Sunday premium?
Lastly, do you find that there is regular overtime available if it's wanted?
