Did they ever get back to you and explain?

No.  I asked where the disconnect was because I thought I aced the interview and would love feedback for future reference.  She didn't reply.  Probably doesn't want to risk a back and forth.  It's all good.  I think I'm over it.

Does someone from the ttc actually call to confirm the medical test was passed?, or do you just wait until you hear from the about documentation scheduling?

They wont call to confirm medical was passed. You'll know when they call for documentation. I've seen others post that they got a letter from the MTO that they passed, but that's few in between I believe.

Does anyone know how the random drug tests are conducted? Do they randomly meet you at the start of your shift or pull you off your bus? I figure it would be a swab test but maybe it’s urine or blood. I don’t care either way but needles stress me out lol.

I don’t believe its needles. I’m pretty sure its urine test but I could be wrong.

Completely random, computer generates badge numbers and whomever’s badge is selected is tested (you can be tested several times, or not tested for a long time). If you’re involved in a collision you’re sent for testing, if a supervisor or wicket clerk suspects drug/alcohol impairment you can be sent then too. 

In terms of when, it’s also random, you may be told to do so before you take your bus out for your shift, or called sometime during your shift telling you to pull over and have a relief driver takerover while your tested etc. Best to avoid any sort of impairment prior to work and if you’re unfit for duty then report it rather than being caught including perscription medications too so if you’re tested and come back for a controlled substance (ei. prescription painkillers) atleast it’s reported before hand

No needles nor urine.

 

For the sake of your personal safety you shouldnt drive while impaired.

MTO letter is only for people (like me) who had some sort of Medical issue that had to be dealt with to obtain Commercial License Clearance.

Reading this thread really makes me appreciate the old days when you simply went somewhere, handed in your resume and they asked you when you could start.  What an incredibly ridiculous, inefficient and insanely bureaucratic process it is these days - sheesh 🙄

The really old days, you didn't need a resume.  The employer provided a Job Application Form (with questions pertinent to the job and nothing else) which you filled out and handed in. Starting work was as simple as your boss taking the 'Help Wanted' sign off the window and you were hired, sometimes on the spot !!! No fuss.

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.

Can someone walk me through what happens at the information session?

You'll receive a folder with information about the job. The lead recruiter will talk about the job, they'll call up a transit operator and he/she will also talk about the job. You'll then write the test followed by a small written essay.

Better yet, you just went in, talked to the manager, shook hands and that was it!

God, I don't think I'd have the patience to go through such a recruitment process.  You need some one to do a job - I need a job.  I have the qualifications - thats it, nice and simple LOL!

The standard wait time they give is 4-6 weeks after the interview. This is at least true from my experience and what I have read here. Generally references are contacted before 2 weeks but every situation may be different. 15 days is too soon to lose hope though. Essentially if your references aren't called you aren't getting hired. So just keep in touch with your references and be patient.
