  1. Yeah sounds about right. If you don't get training date by the end of this month then expect training to start in January. You'll get to experience winter driving yayyy
  2. Also do note for birthday floaters. If your training starts AFTER your birthday then you will not have any floaters for the year. My birthday is May 15 and I started training May 16 and was out of luck.
  3. Yeah enjoy a long vacation! You only get 2 weeks when you first start. I took mine in January and February =( should have spaced it out more, oh well the year is almost over anyways
  4. I remember during training my instructor would get mad at my partner. When it was my turn to take over I could still feel the stress and negative energy from my instructor being placed on me. Not that I was doing a shit job but just from having to deal with my partner. It was quite stressful for me as well. Hopefully your instructor isn't like that with you. My partner failed out on day 15 so from that day on I was alone with my instructor and it was much more calm.
  5. Mcnicoll is gonna be a junior division? I think not.
  6. I only said that's rough because Mt Dennis is not close to you at all lol. I live in Scarborough and was lucky enough to get placed at Eglinton. Trust me when I say that it is a blessing to live close to division especially when you'll have splits that are 4 to 5 hours long. And there's no "sarcastic" good lucks given. I do mean good luck.
  7. That's rough. Good luck with training.
  8. Yeah probably the general behavioral questions but not as many I would think. I wasn't part of the fast track last year so my interview was close to an hour long with 2 interviewers. I still have the questions they asked me if you're interested send me a pm
  9. My friend has color blindness and he's doing fine. You just won't be able to work subway
  10. Yeah one of my classmates failed years ago. He kept his badge number though so he's like a low 7 badge so everyone thinks he's senior lol
  11. Yes I've heard of people getting appeals to re-do training. Heard of one student who blamed his failure due to having too many different trainers during driving. He got a second chance but failed again (not a surprise).
  12. If that is your mentality than don't bother going at all. And street car training I hear is harder than bus. If you go into it thinking of failure than you're gonna fail.
  13. You're the same age I am, and last year I was in the same position you are in. I had to quit my job to do the training and pretty much gambled on passing. Some people are fortunate that they can take vacation or leave of absence for the month, but not me. Fortunately I passed and I just finished my probation last Saturday. It was a leap of faith that paid off and I don't regret leaving my last job one bit. You have to make that choice yourself. Go to the info session and see what it's like. It's a shame they don't require people to do job shadow assignment anymore, because then you can actually witness an operator at work and what the job entails. The training is tough at first. The first few days of driving is nerve wracking as with anything that is a new adventure. But you'll get it, it will click and you'll understand driving and turning the bus. Be on your instructors good side and listen to what he/she is saying, they are there to see you pass, they don't want to fail you. Give me a PM and I can answer anymore questions you have. I think they are still doing interviews on the same day as the session. At least that's how it was a month ago, but I'm not sure if they changed it or not
