I wonder why we are back in Exeter...stage 2 for as long as I can remember has always been the computer tests in Swindon and if successful with that only then do you have the MMI

I’d heard that too.

What tests will I take?

- The Situational Judgement Exercise (SJE) if not completed as part of stage one assessment
- Multi Modal Interview Pre –Interview form
- The Multi Modal Interview
That’s what my email said we’d be taking

Thanks pete.

That all sounds positive for anyone on the waiting list and still being processed.
From what I gather, it’s a mixture of new shift patterns with compulsory Sunday and bank holiday working, anticipated retirement, expansion of operations at BTM and plans for drivers to also be based out of BPW in the near future. That’s my interpretation anyway.

Hello,
Does anyone know if GWR have multiple waves of recruitment for locations within the 20/21 talent pool?
I applied for the 19/20 talent pool for Exeter and failed the DMI, I'm still waiting out the six months rule before reapplying so couldn't apply when the 20/21 vacancy was published.
Thanks

Your best shout would be to sign up for the recruitment email alerts via the First Group careers portal. Just log into your account and it’s quite easy to spot - I think it’s under the profile section. You’ll then get an email when talent pool adverts go live for your preferred depot.

Cheers,

Pete

Hi all,

I received an email today with more dates for the 2nd stage assessment centre. I missed out on the last block as all the dates had been taken before I could access the site.

Unfortunately I won’t be able to make any of the new dates. I work offshore and am scheduled to be at sea at that time.

Does anyone know what happens to someone who can’t make these dates? Will GWR offer more assessment centre dates? I’m nervous about hitting the ‘I can’t make these times’ button on the website in case it cancels my application…

Thanks for any info you can share!

It might be worth a call to recruitment. It may be that you will be offered more dates, however when this is could be another matter.

Thank you for your reply! I have been told I will be contacted by a member of recruitment. Hopefully there will be more dates available at another time. Wish me luck!

I had my stage 1 today in Exeter for Plymouth talent pool. I have spoken to a few people and they said when they did their stage one they did the WCT test but none of the courses today did it. They both finished on the tones and phone book tests. Any ideas?

I read on another thread that plymouth is now only offering shunter positions, as all driver vacancies have been filled? Anyone know if this is true?
