    Hi guys,

    I applied for the "general" trainee driver position ("across Scotland"), closing date 27th December, but haven't heard anything at all yet.

    Did those who got responses apply for specific depots? If so, which ones?

    I've got the DMI on Friday too. I completed the paperwork assessment last Friday and got an email yesterday regarding the interview. The process has been extremely quick since I've applied which is prob a positive gives you less time to be be nervous. Good luck on Friday

    Good luck everyone for interviews. I applied on 23rd December for trainee job that ended on 27th Dec. So I'm kinda not expecting to hear anything for another couple of weeks. I'm guessing they have hundreds of applications to go through.
