  1. That's what it's based on is your medical that's what I was told in my documentation
  2. Six hrs pay for eight hrs training, they hold back your first pay a week or two and then its weekly pay
  3. Yeah I started training in early August but missed two days due to illness, I had to do redocumentation and wait for another training class and I'm not going to malvern if I pass my training this time which is 5 mins from where I live, I will be going to birtchmount this time
  4. I just received my training start date 16th September
  5. Our instructor said transit operators have a higher divorce rate than even cops do and I believe it, I don't mean to scare people off but the job is a whole lifestyle change.. he said that's why you see ppl in the industry dating or married because they get and are in the same lifestyle
  6. Indeed, and two or three just failed out of training that were supposed to go to eglinton division so there is a few more spots open for the next training classes
  7. If it helps I know there is a training class starting Sept 3rd for bus operators
  8. Yes sir even if you are puking and have terrible stomach craps solider on get your butt into work and hope that your coworkers don't get what you have or had, I almost forgot I also saw my family doctor the next day and gave them a doctors note lol
  9. Ok well I jumped from malvern Division to queensway holy, note to anyone in training now or in the future dont miss more than two days of training due to illness go in sick if you have to, I did and I have to attend a redocumentation and start training from the start again and I went from having a five minute drive to malvern to over an hour at queensway provided I get through training
  10. I have documentation August 19th lol too funny, well good thing is I think I get a new photo and maybe they won't put an S on the end of my first name this time around
  11. Lol it's part of the experience and it's fun
  12. Yeah buddy has been a trainer for many years not sure how he still is but he is maybe it's the union or maybe its students are afraid to say anything about him I'm not sure obviously
  13. This is the kind of question maybe I need to decide the answer for myself but some useful feed back is wanted, if this situation I'm facing with an instructor who is less than tactful and is over dramatic and screams and shouts at my training partner would it be better off for me to in my training to seek out a new trainer as management told us we could ? Because I feel even though its not me he is doing it to that it's going to affect my ability to focus on learning during training
  14. 100% the drivers attitude in most cases will dictate how a customer is with that driver I know there are going to be people it won't matter for but can't worry about them too much
  15. I understand that being yelled at by customers, but a trainer yelling at trainee who is probably already nervous on their first time driving a 40ft deadly weapon through traffic doesn't benefit anyone inside or outside the vehicle
  16. Crap I've said too much the special constables are at my door now lol
  17. It's was very stressful for me to see him get yelled at but it was our first day on the bus so I'm not sure what he was expecting of my training partner on the first day on the bus , he didn't put us in any life threatening situations or something that would have crashed the bus , no my instructor was calm with me for the most part, it's been a while for me driving a transit bus so I had some misperceptions crepp into my head and bad habits where he raised his voice on my first turn in the seat driving but eventually he was sitting in a seat midway through the bus but I still felt the tension in the air
  18. On a side note, first day on the bus and driving was interesting lol, I'm sure my training partner will be pounding back the brews this weekend after how our trainer was with him today yikes it was a scene man, thankfully for myself but not at the same time , I have experience driving a transit bus and how they turn pivot points scanning at starts and stops and brake covering ect but the trainer is expecting a little bit more from me lol but I'm trying to put what I learned before when I got my bus license away and listen to how the TTC teaches and the way they want it done
  19. Relax guys I'm just quoting a MANAGER from Hillcrest and what he told us in the training class about the master signup, don't shoot the messenger lol loosen your fists of rage lol.. I understand from being in the work force that just because the company or a management says something will happen this way its not actually going to happen the way they said, and he made all of us awear we will be place in a corrdence to the demand of the work force of any given division I think that's what I said this morning on here, I understand I might be pushed out of malvern.. so again just relax and don't jump down my throat for quoting management.. have a better day
  20. Reaaon why our trainer told us not to get to confortable with the divison we are at
  21. Maybe not so much of a rumor that it will be in October, in preparation for some movement of some bodies in a year from THIS October and find bodies to occupy the new Division in Scarborough which is also rumored to be a jr division upon opening for service..
  22. Yeah I know I will be doing to practical regardless in training not asking but that part , I was just wondering about the day three airbrake testing
  23. LOL Yeah YOU @busmechanic I found and very old with you in it pertaining to Air Brakes, I have my BZ already as well I just forgot to ask my instructor if I heard him right when he told me I would only have to do the TTC inhouse test for Z and the inhouse bus cert And not have to do the hands on testing
  24. @busmechanic Did you have a Z before you worked at TTC and anyone else on here have it before? myself and another person in my training class have our Z and was told we can bypass the practical Z test and just do the in house written
