hey guys, 

 

quick question i applied earlier this year wondering, when i would be getting a email ? 

 

thanks ! 

It took 10 weeks in my case to invite me to the info session. Whole process is around 12 months, give or take.

Just because you applied it doesn't mean you will get an email. Thousands apply and never get contacted at all. Everyone has a different timeline. I didn't get contacted for over 1 year and 2 months. My classmate applied for 8 years. Another classmate over 3 years. Another classmate 7 months. 

 

Good luck.

Hello everyone.

 

After a fair amount of (mostly) patient waiting, my documentation is set for next week.  Does anyone know how long it would take for a training date after documentation?

 

Cheers

Hey,

 

My documentation is next week Thursday - i agree, a long process ( applied August 2016 ) and currently there is no date for training either. 

 

They really make you earn your spot here eh ? :lol:

 

Did you apply for Collector or Transit ?

Hi everyone, after a couple hours of reviewing this AWESOME forum, I couldn't find a post about the answers for job shadow assignment. I have a interview next week, so I hope that someone can help me with answering. I have some thoughts, but I would like to hear your ideas.

There is the assignment;

  1. yonge blue night bus (320)
  2. queen blue night street car (301). But now, because of construction, they running the bus through all route, instead of streetcar. So I'm wondering, what they prefer; to stay on the route or take another blue night streetcar? I did the route with bus.
  3. 1 downtown streetcar (NOT queen streetcar) during the rush hours. 
  4. one route west of yonge
  5. one route east of yonge.

Can someone give me some suggestions how is best to answer the questions related to each route;

  1. What types of customer interactions took place on this route between the operator and customers? What are your main observations in regards to customer expectations?
  2. please describe how the operator multitasks. Identify some of the tasks performed and indicate how he managed those tasks at the time.

There's also a summary questions;

  1. What do you consider are the positive aspects of an operator's job?
  2. What do you consider are the main challenges of an operator?
  3. How would you handle these challenges and what do you believe will motivate you to be successful in this job?
  4. Based on what you observed, describe the differences in operating a bus and streetcar.

 Thanks for help
