  1. That is hilarious! Should have told her "ya same to you". I had my trainer tell me I was starting to piss him off...so in my most serious deep tone I yelled "the feeling is mutual!"...good times
  2. You will end up doing the practical air brake procedure everyday in training regardless. Your benefit will be having an understanding of air brakes before you start training. The most tedious part about training is balancing everything in your life with homework every night.
  3. You pay to park at Hillcrest. Also you have to park in commuter lot and pay while at Wilson division. Other divisions may be free but space is very limited. Lots of $$ to spend before actually making any here.
  4. Just get hired then start to make a decision. No point in over thinking so prematurely. Your hours at ttc will be completely unpredictable in comparison to your current job.
  5. Their concern is diabetes when finding elevated sugar levels. Basically they will need to confirm you don't have diabetes or if you do the condition is treated adiquitly. Also you may be required to get a hearing aid in order to clear your medical. They are stationing people all over. My class went to Wilson, MT.Dennis, and Malvern
  6. They are required to fill 1000 positions by the end of 2018. They must be hundreds short and year end is nearing. This may explain the fast track hiring. Sucks for those who have been through the regular process but not much you can do.
  7. Don't feel too badly as I live in Oshawa and got Wilson division. I have been training out of Arrow, Mt. Dennis and Wilson. The commute is bad coming home at 3pm. Good job is worth the commute. Congratulations on your start date.
  8. I am going to Wilson as well after training. I'm on day 5 and it's harder than I anticipated. Just keeping my eye on the prize. If this was easy everybody would do it.
  9. You will know if you pass the interview if references are called as it is the next step in the hiring process. If you fail the reference check you will receive a polite email rejection. Usually takes 4-8 weeks after interview to receive anything via email.
  10. Maybe you'll get lucky and be starting your first shift after you cross the last "t" in documentation.
  11. That's strange, considering your pace your medical should have also been scheduled, completed and cleared today... Your recruiter will be the person that scheduled your interview via email. Just send an email directly to this person. Did you check with your references to see if they had been contacted? This generally happens days after to indicate you have passed the interview phase.
  12. Excellent news! Good luck on the day. It took 3 business days after for me to get a start date. This timeline will most likely vary though.
  13. Hi everyone, I was just wondering if anybody else will be starting on August 20?
  14. You don't need to send it but realistically there is zero harm in doing so.
  15. It took 15 days for me to receive documentation email after receiving my MTO letter in the mail. I also forwarded it to my recruiter who did not have any information about TTC having this clearance letter at the time. Hope this helps.
  16. Thanks for the information. I have passed it on. Eglinton would actually be more ideal as it is closer to Wilson.
  17. Division assignments are definitely luck of the draw. I'm in Oshawa and was assigned Wilson division. My girlfriend who starts the week before is assigned Malvern.
  18. My girlfriend received the same email but the dates in the email were unclear. She emailed them and they responded to her inquiry saying the training start date is actually August 9. I'm worried there is a miscommunication and either you or her are incorrect. Can you email them and let me know? Thanks
  19. Once I sent my clearance note from my doctor to medysis it took about 5 weeks to get my letter. Not to worry though as your seniority is based on the date you did your medical. So even if you start later than some your seniority will be better than some. I'm just being patient knowing everything will fall into place soon. Hang in there.
  20. I got my medical clearance letter from MTO last week. I forwarded it to my recruiter and am waiting to be notified for documentation. Long wait since I did my medical at beginning of May. Just remaining patient.
  21. Fast track would be explained in the email for the information session. I'm pretty sure hiring procedures have reverted back to normal.
  22. You will be required to use CPAP machine for 30 days. Your data will be extracted from machine's memory card and your doctor will have to verify your therapy is working sufficiently before a note will be released. I submitted my note two weeks ago and still waiting on documentation. Hang in there.
  23. I'm pretty sure they did this for a few info sessions only and have reverted back to normal hiring process. A person above mentioned he was scheduled for an interview on Tuesday.
  24. I was already diagnosed with sleep apnea and have been using a CPAP machine for 6 years. I was very forthcoming with this information and still was required to get a note from sleep specialist along with print off of CPAP data. It took me one month just to get in to see the doctor. Sent my note and documents in 10 days ago and not a word. So it's just a long process where you get great at waiting.
  25. No unfortunately. I am in same boat.
