  1. Hey all. Well, I am back Yesterday marks the one year point that I originally applied with the TTC. After many months waiting and making it to the interview stage, I was turned down. I want to reapply, as they are still accepting applications. When I tried to reapply on Talentnest I am told that I have already applied for this position and my application is complete, When does the system mark 1 year so I can reapply? Is it the original date applied or the date I was turned down? I should read my email over before posting a question. In my rejection e-mail it said one year from the interview date
  2. got an e-mail this afternoon. very short and formal, but it was no all the same. good luck to those who are still waiting.
  3. Does the TTC call you with a yes or no, or do you get an e-mail?
  4. I sort of knew that and after I posted my question I thought it was pointless to try to compare.
  5. Good morning all. Just a quick question, more for my own piece of mind, if anything. I had my face to face interview on April 22 and was told I would be contacted in 4 to 6 weeks with either a yes or no. I obviously have not heard anything yet and I am thinking, no news is good news. From what I have read it would seem that the TTC usually contacts people around 1 month after the face to face. If I wasn't still being considered should I have been contacted with a no by now?
  6. This group is very informative and helpful. A big thank you!
  7. i apologise if i seemed like i was putting the cart before the horse. it was just a question and i thought perhaps someone may be in the same circumstance.
  8. On another note, I was wondering about benefits. Dental in particular. I have a 15 year old daughter who lives with her mother in Ottawa. She has just started a 5 year orthodontic process to fix her jaw and teeth. Would she be covered even though she does not live with me?
  9. Evening all. Well, I did my 5 routes last night. I must say that it was a very enjoyable experience. All of the operators I spoke with were very friendly and more than helpful. Looking very much forward to my interview this Friday, I am feeling very confident.
  10. Good morning everyone. I was at the September info session and received my Interview email Friday. We were told that we would hear back from them, if successful, by November 30th. January 17th.... SO STOKED! I used to have a BZ license, so driving of buses, highway coach and large vehicles is nothing new to me. I even drove the double decker, right hand drive tour buses in Ottawa. That was awesome! What I am curious about is what the other info and tests cover. Is there say,TTC policy and procedures? We were told that there is ALLOT of material to cover during training. I am sure that safety will be top of the list, but again, I used to drive school buses, which is a higher class license requiring a little more training. Other than route familiarization, is the training focused more on driving and safety? I am new to the area and have not made it into Toronto very much, but I have been studying the routes map and other than being bigger than Ottawa, the city and routes are pretty straight forward. I really like how the grid system is used. Also, just a thought, but..... Can we carry/wear a watch type of GPS? When I have spoken with different operators on DurhamTransit in Oshawa, they mentioned something about switching to on-board GPS, with routes preprogrammed. Has something like this been discussed? Thanks for all the great info!

  12. There are examples of the test questions at the end of the invitation letter.
  13. thank you and that is encouraging. i was thinking the same thing about the assignments. if i lived in toronto that would be one thing, but.... this is the opportunity of a lifetime and i know this is the career for me.
  14. No the nausea was strictly because there was a flu bug going though my home, just really sucked that it had to happened then I had only mentioned it because I of what happened at the info session.
  15. Hey all! My name is Kevin and I am fairly new to this group. I have been actively reading all of the posts and I am finding allot of useful information. I had applied to the TTC on-line in July. I received an invitation to attend the Aug info session. Unfortunately, I was in Ottawa at the time and was unable to attend. Immediately upon arrival at home I proceeded to email the TTC and explain what happened and they invited me to the info session on Sept 24th. Over all and no matter what the outcome, I would say it was a very pleasant experience. The HR personnel were very informative and had answers to all questions asked. I had answered 34 out of 50 questions on the aptitude test, skipping only 2. I was feeling quite good about how things were progressing, but at one point I had a sudden bout of nausea and had to make a hasty exit. I had not been feeling well, but was hoping all would be fine. I returned to the session and finished out the rest of the time. Before leaving I approached the HR reps and thanked them for their time and apologised for having to leave suddenly. I believe that I did well in the testing and that except for my feeling unwell, all went fine. I am hoping though that the fact I had to step out for a moment will not affect any decision to get an interview. I live in Oshawa and at the moment must get into Toronto and do my job shadowing assignments. It was said that if I was to do the assignments on a Friday and the overnight I can get all 5 done in one day. Could someone explain in a little more detail how I can do this? Anyway, this has turned into quite a long post, so I will end by saying that this is an awesome group and I guess fingers crossed right! lol!!
