  1. I think it's mostly that some people have a tough time controlling their nerves on day 16. There are a few people that find out in the middle of training that the job is not for them and they quit. A very small few fail bacause they fail to listen to the trainers and/or do not do their homework. Also, I predict there will be a higher percentage of quitters and/or fails as a result of the "fast tracking" through the hiring process. Just an opinion.
  2. Doesn't take a whole lot of time right now. They're fast tracking everyone.
  3. That's ok. I'm going to think that a lot more new hires are going to come in than moves. At least that's what I'm hoping for. Either way, I'm happy.
  4. Who's coming to Malvern. I can use the seniority. Lol
  5. You'll do fine. Just control those nerves and don't let them get the best of you. The trainers do a really good job of over-preparing you for it. You'll laugh at how easy it was...after. Good luck.
  6. Training is now complete. Wow! What a ride. I can honestly say that it was a really excellent training program with excellent trainers who really have one goal in mind; to help you become a great transit operator and assist you in passing all your tests. Listen and absorb everything they tell you. Next hump is the 10 month probation period. See you out there.
  7. One more day and into divisional training. Wow, that went by quick. *wave's to you know who
  8. Day 16 just around the corner. Any tips, tricks, or hints?
  9. Anyone willing to advise us on the route of the road test?
  10. You should have received an email with what you need to bring. It really depends on your situation. Read that email.
  11. It's usually a good sign your references were contacted. Just be patient.
  12. I believe you get paid on your third week of training (Wednesday) and it'll be about 500 dollars, give or take.
  13. Onto Day 3 of training and I'm loving it. It's true what some of you had said, it depends on the person and on their experience of the training that determines if it's "hard" or "easy". I have been putting myself in a hard-working mentality. Basically, what you put into training is what you'll get out of it. And the instructors are awesome!
  14. I'm up in Aurora so getting Malvern was amazing. I think that was the closest one. LOL.
  15. Feeling excited to start training soon but, at the same time, a little bit nervous. May is going to be a fun month.
  16. Just be patient. I was already celebrating when my references told me they were called.
  17. Anyone here going for training May 2nd? Usually it is a good sign your references got contacted and then its a matter of waiting. Either way, they will let you know if you pass or fail. Do you know how your references responded? They will call you when they receive your results from Medisys and give you a date for documentation. Then they will send you an email with all the details. Occasionally you will receive a letter from MTO advising you that you passed your medical.
  18. Do the questions you know first. I skipped all the math ones my first and second "run through".
  19.

  20. Well, final leg in the application process (Step 10). Now to pass training. I'll keep you guys posted. And thank you! Relishing every second of it.
  21. Received my call for training today. I start Wednesday 02 May 2018. My mode will be bus and my Division will be Malvern. I'm very excited. Final leg of this race.
