I got an email saying I’m on hold to go to an assessment centre
Has anyone heard anything?
Yes I had an email a few weeks ago saying that the vacancy is no longer a vacancy and if I was still interested I should keep an eye on vacancies on the website! This was almost six months after the closing date and I find this approach disappointingly dismissive. Interesting what has now unfolded in the news with a shortage of drivers being the main reason behind the nightmare that Northern are now in. I appreciate that there is more to it than this, with electrification delays, but more new drivers would surely have alleviated the shortages.
I think it's more drivers not trained on routes rather than a lack of drivers, I'm sure someone will be able to correct me if I'm wrong. How far did you get if you don't mind me asking
I'm positive I recently read a link (which I now can't find!), posted on ASLEF fb group, that said the company as a whole were 150 drivers over compliment.
Of course, there can still be localised shortages. But that paints a generalised picture which confirms your quoted text.
It seems to be what the staff in the NW are saying too.
I'm just waiting for a course date, I'm not holding my breath to be honest
I just submitted the application, I hadn't heard anything about reaching the next stage. I have applied previously and reached the interview stage twice, but not progressed beyond that.
I've got a phone call today, been pencilled in for a course date starting end of July. Has anyone else heard?
I had my phone call today too, start date at the end of August. Happy days!
Same to you mate!
Have you had your medical? Confirmation letter/email?
I had my medical Monday, so just waiting to hear back. Whens your start date?
Ahh good stuff.
28th August. I keep mithering for some sort of confirmation so I can put my notice in but it’s not forthcoming!
I'm supposed to start the 30th July and I've not received any confirmation yet. I need to put my notice it by next Tuesday so hopefully things will move along quickly
What did your medical consist of?
Height and weight check
Check for any issues with movement of body
Colour blindness test
And urine test for drugs think that's it
