    After successful application we were the invited to
    do the standard online SJT and then to rail house for group bourdon, SCAAT and basic information gathering assessment. It's marked to an enhanced industry standard.

    I failed the interview sadly and ended up staying with my toc

    I had mine last year
    Was basically Scaat test and a drivers report writing exercise, followed by the managers interview in the afternoon

    going off what Aivilo has said it sounds like they just pick a couple of the psychometric paper tests each time just to help whittle down the numbers a bit, think there were about 30 there when I went

    More or less the same by the sound of it. Sounds like the online situational judgement test and group bourdon were the only extra items. Interviews weren't done for us on the day either
