I believe this to be incorrect. I'm completely healthy, drug free and have never had any type of health issue, yet I received a letter from MTO yesterday citing that I've been cleared.  

When was your medical appointment? I'm just trying to establish an expected timeline for myself. Thanks

I'm in the exact same boat as you; I scowered this forum and it seems there's a 28-30 day wait between the medical and documentation session. I've waited nearly 3 weeks now. 1 week to go!

Just did my medical Thursday for a trades position. It was a vision test, hearing test, blood pressure, and piss test. The fitness was pretty simple. I had to carry a loaded tool box around a hallway and up and down a flight of stairs, push and pull a cart with wheels, and move some 5lb weights around. I think instead of a tool box, you carry around a fare box and the rest of the test should be the same more or less.

As for the surgery, as long as you can perform daily functions, you should be good to go.

Thank You very much for valuable reply. Still waiting for appointment. And I have no any issue with bending or doing daily activity.  I am in Apprentice so might be the same kind medical requirement. 

 Thank You.

Forgot to mention they measure your heart rate after each task

First week of April. 

I meant to say that TTC will hold off your application in the recruitment process until they get the MTO clear. The medical letter is just for your reference.

Hey guys.. got a few questions. I've been reading this whole thread and on other sites, and from what I have seen people did their interviews on a different date from the information session. However, the invitation I got in my email says, "Upon satisfactory result of your assessment, you will be invited to a one-time opportunity where we will hold a face-to-face interview on the same day." Does this mean I will be doing the interview on the same day? Or am I interpreting this the wrong way? Can someone tell me, approximately, how many days after the orientation do you have to complete your medical test? 

Thanks all.

Does anyone think it will be a challenge to learn to drive the bus without any commercial vehicle driving experience, or do they prepare you enough to easily pass the road test?

They are fast tracking hiring! Absolutely this means on info session day you will have an interview. Providing of coarse you receive a satisfactory test score. My girlfriend just got the same email. I am at the end of the hiring process and it's been about 5.5 months. At this rate if all goes well they will have this shortened to a month. Your medical would be booked right after they assess if you passed the interview, your references check out and you get a conditional offer.

I heard of this while at hillcrest today, it’s true that some of the people invited for information sessions are being interviewed on the spot (if successful in the tests). This eliminates a lot of the waiting and fast tracks the hiring process in order to hire few hundred extra operators to meet demands. I heard they need close to 1000 new operators this year, rather than the 600 or so they initially planned on hiring

They do a good job in training and teaching you, you don’t necessarily need previous commercial vehicle driving experience in order to succeed. Per the management, they have a 80% pass rate compared to MTO which has a 70% rate, they are investing a lot of time and money in training you and want you to pass

You can't really prepare for this test as it's either you know it or you don't. Just remember you only have 12 minutes to complete as many questions as possible. Don't take too much time on any question. I had 120 people in my information session and it was the biggest snow storm of the year lol. The place looked like it could easily accommodate 200 people.

I’m the opposite. I’m more nervous about the interview than I am with the test lol

Look up wonderlic sample questions online. It will be similar. I did not realize it was wonderlic test until after writing the test. Just pay attention to the questions and read everything.
