    Hi there people, what a fantastic forum this is. I'm quite new to the forum, I have my DMI in a couple of weeks was wondering if anyone has any information or help regarding the interview?

    Cheers

    In case you haven't found them I found these on another thread

    What do you know about the company?
    Why do you want to be a train driver / what challenges do you think a train driver might face?
    Name a time you went above and beyond the call of duty
    Name a time you were involved in an unexpected/emergency situation
    Name a time you had to speak to or address a large group of people
    Name a time you worked well as part of a team
    Name a time you had to work accurately under pressure

    Be alot of questions about safety and concentration ect just maybe worded differently

    I've only just found out outcome of interview I had in January with northern. So if you don't hear anything for a while it doesn't mean it's bad news.

    I know I'd pretty much give up on it. I did my psychometric tests last September with a freightliner application. So hopefully just a medical to go.

    Persevere.

    I’ve failed at every single stage in the recruitment process and I’m finally awaiting a medical now.

    You just have to pick yourself up and go again harder next time. Analyse and strengthen your examples.

    You’ll get there eventually if you want it bad enough.

    I really do but keep getting rejected from every thing i try I thought I was going to get a managers job at my current work place but that fell through, I feel my cv and cover letter are pretty decent but maybe in wrong i work in a pharmacy so i feel like alot of skills easily transfer. Is this the second time you got to an interview for hull?? Have you asked hr or hey and feedback from the interview?

    I have asked for feedback yeah but nothing yet. The girl at HR was sorting it for me. My situations aren’t that great I’m a plumber. Yeah Iv got health and safety certicates and drive long distances up and down the country. It’s hard industry to get just got to keep your chin up keep trying. I have a friend at Hull who is a train driver also. The last interview was tough
