I just received the call for my start date. I start training Aug. 22, mode is Bus and my division is #8 Malvern. If anyone has experience at this division I would appreciate you sharing any advice you may have. I haven't posted on here before, but have found this forum a very helpful resource and wanted to thank everyone for posting here. As I didn't know anyone working for the TTC this has been a great place to read and find answers to many questions. Thank you! The process was longer than I would have expected. As such I thought it would be helpful to post a timeline for the stages that was my experience in hopes of it helping others. Jan 8, 2016 - Online Application March 5, 2016 - Information Session ( I answered 40 questions or so and found it pretty simple . ADVICE - Follow the instructions, listen and read) April 6, 2016 - Email from TTC for interview April 15, 2016 - Completed Job Shadowing I completed the entire thing in one night. I had never been on a TTC bus and found it good time to talk to drivers and get to know if the job was for me. It may not be necessary to complete it as others have said here you could write it out without going on the routes, but I found it helpful. April 25, 2016 - TTC interview . On arriving forst thing they want to see is the requested documents (education diplomas, abstract, completed job shadow ect). Then completed police background check form. Interview - 12 questions based on you giving specific examples from your past work history. I also handed them my list of work references. May 9, 2016 - All my references were contacted. They were all asked the same questions about my sick time, work ethic etc. May 18, 2016 -Received and signed Conditional Job offer via email - Added to hiring "Pool B" May 19, 2016 - Medical Appointment - Crazy amount of paperwork. Filled out 10 forms before going and then another 20 once there. Nothing crazy here. Physical testing involved pushing and pulling a weighted cart etc. Hearing, vision tests, drug urine test and then a physical with the doctor. June 25, 2016 - Received letter from Toronto police requesting I make an appointment for fingerprinting. I later learned from them that this is unusual and was because my date of birth was the same as somebody else who had a record. July 8. 2016 - Attended fingerprint session with Toronto Police July 18, 2016 - Received CLEAR vulnerable sector check form in mail July 15, 2016 - Received phone call and email confirming Documentation session time and date July 27, 2016 - Attended documentation session Sized for uniforms and completed forms and submitted another copy of abstract. Aug 4, 2016 - TTC Human Resources called with Start date, Divison and mode. Start work August 22 2016! Hope this is of help to anyone involved in the process and please feel free to ask any questions. Best of luck to all!
