TTC Application Process

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

Detected with severe sleep apnea. recommended cpap machine. Now, It gonna take few weeks for my doctor to submit my report to TTC if my sleep apnea will come within normal range.

So, I am basically stuck in medicals. all  the best to all others.

 

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.

Curious; is there some common/frequent reason why people fail out of training? Is it just "they suck at driving in general" and then they have that "suckiness" compounded by having to drive a big ol' city bus? Bad attitudes? Absent mindedness? 

Anyone chime in here? Might be some things others in training could look out for.

Mounting curbs during the first few days of driving is okay, the instructor will not give you an unsatisfactory for that. But as you progress you should not be mounting curbs anymore, come days 10-15 if you keep mounting curbs the instructor will give you unsatisfactory scores. You rack up 2 unsats during training and you're booted. So yes, it is possible to fail out before the day 16 test (my partner failed on day 15).

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.

Maybe.  Some newbies have attitude problems and started playing games.

This has not gone unnoticed by the maintenance department’s management. A marked spike in premature tire sidewall wear was a red flag.

the roads on a lot of Malvern routes are wide.  no excuse for curb rubbing.

I cant understand why anybody would still be mounting curbs after 30 hours of driving.

I can't understand why anybody would say such stupid things.

It happens.

I'm not an employee, but this commonly happens. It takes time to get used to driving a bus. It's not like driving a car.

Sounds like you're bitter after failing the training. You don't have to troll the forum because your sad, try a self help book.

To clarify, when I say premature, I’m using examples of brand spanking new -to sidewall indicators completely worn off in 10 days of service. 

Occasional  brushes with the curb on a right turn won’t do that.

There have been infrequent cases of curb rub to the point of wearing through the steel belts and the sidewall blowing out. Either way it should go in the file...either they missed the exposed cords on the pre trip / relief point, or they’re so awful that they managed to chew though all that in one shift.

Email your recruiter in a day or 2 to confirm if he/she received the clearance letter, that's what I did.

Hey guys am I supposed to receive some sort of Medical clearance letter or something before the start of training?

Does anyone actually read the information package they get (via e-mail) or a hard copy?? *Or maybe have written the info down?? It is only going to get harder once you start training, so be prepared and also, try using this site and all it offers by searching for the answer first. **It is really easy to do!  Good luck to all!

hi, just to answer your question....after you have done your medicals... the results of your medical assessment will be directly sent to TTC..there is no need for you to call HR  unless you choose to call them. If you require any further medical assessment, Medysis WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH YOU FOR SURE. You will only require further testing or a medical note from a doctor, IF MEDYSIS ASKS FOR IT. IF THEY DONT ASK, THEN YOU DONT NEED TO PROVIDE ANYTHING. BUT, once you receive your clearance from the Police, email your assigned recruiter the copy. Your recruited will then LET YOU KNOW THE NEXT STEP. I hope this helps you....this is all stated in your documents which were provided to you along with your conditional offer. :)

Or you could just be a loser who couldn't pass the training. Cause im sure a divisonal trainer would have an account made 1 week ago on a Thursday at 3am. This forum is prob ur last ditch effort at trying to get it up aft Viagra nd cialis failed u. 

Maybe u should look into that self help book instead of trying to get it up from guys comments

 

I feel sorry for you what a sad life. I get enjoyment from spending time with my family.

 

My dad always said be nice to the poeple on the way up because u meet the same people on the way down. Think about it i know it will be hard for you because that statement will require you to use common sense to understand it.....

After the training is completed, what is taught on the training days at your actual division?

After day 25, you have 3 days of route familiarization.  Your class will be with a divisional trainer showing you around the division, you will take out a bus and learn the different routes in your division.  Your trainer will also show you how to sign up for crews, holidays, etc. You will also meet with your shop steward and division manager.  After the 3 days you are on your own, you will be put on spare board or open report.
