So they put me in street car division and I start training soon. 

 

can someone that works for the ttc tell me how hard it is to Take classes while you’re working? I basically have like 4 classes left to graduate and I’m wondering if it’s possible to take one or two per semester?  Will our off days be the same every week? I know the ttc work schedule Is going to be hectic but will my off days change on a week to week basis?

I'm in streetcar training now too. How's training going for you?

Hello!

Has anyone declined / asked to post pone a training date because of scheduling reasons/etc?  Waited almost two months for a training date but they gave me a time that was unfortunately a bit too short notice.  Haven't emailed them back yet regarding the issue as im trying to see if my current work is able to work around this but how flexible are they with bumping you to the next class?

Thanks

If they gave you two weeks notice, then not room for this. It'll depend on your trainer. Email them right away

Ended up accepting the training date but does anyone know how easy or how soon I can transfer divisions?  I was under the impression that they would place me in a division close to home but they put me in one across the city(queensway, I live in the east end)

I am at Queensway. Day 23 of training today (with divisional trainer on the 501 replacement bus and the 301 night bus). You can transfer divisions in the same mode at around the 1 year mark of service. But who knows, maybe you will end up really liking Queensway. From my experience so far, it is a pretty good division to be at.

Speak to a union board member once your probation is done. Good luck 🤞

No complaints on my end! Queensway seems like a nice division to be but for me, I live like 5 mins walking distance away from the Malvern division so it caught me by surprise when they put me in queensway.  Either way, can't wait to start training!

Queensway is really nice. I'm almost 6 months on over there and I'm loving every minute of it.

They put you where they need operators. Proximity to where you live doesn't factor into the decision.

I had sent PRCP and the lady from TTC emails that someone will get back to me. It's been a week now and no update. 

Medicals done, letter received from MTO. Police clearance done. Anyone waiting for documentation email or has received it?

It's a pretty interesting turn to make. I had to wait quite a while to make that right turn onto Castlefield when I was doing my test. There are some routes with very similar turns, that's why they make it part of the test. 

Congratulations on passing. Now you're on the home stretch but keep your focus up. You still need to have satisfactory daily progress until you pass your final test. Get lots of rest for your divisional training days as you'll be doing more driving in 3 days then you have in your entire training so far. 

I think it's 30 to 40 pounds and if I remember correctly you just walk down the hallway and back. Someone who's done medical recently will know. 

Thank you for responding. Yes, it was just that with a bunch of other weight exercises. It has been 2 weeks since I've completed the medical and have not heard back yet. I've attempted to check my progress on myttc portal, but it just says for next steps : " not translated in selected language." I'm assuming I may have to wait about a month's time before I hear anything? Hope I passed!

Hello all

Many thanks to everyone that has contributed to this thread

Here is my timeline so far:

Applied: 12/19/21
Wonderlic Test & Virtual Information Session: 06/07/22
Phone Interview from agency: 06/20/22
Conditional Offer: 06/23/22
Documentation: 06/24/22
References Contacted: 06/29/22

 

It has now been more than a month since my references have been contacted. Still waiting on my medical date and Police Check. I guess this is taking awhile? Will the agency contact me if the offer has been rescinded?

hey,dude, im new here, and i have a couple of questions for u, cause it seems like we have a similar time

1, what is ISN , i just know the recruiter from Cadre

2, my time line,  6.10 create a ttc account

                         6.11 submit application

                        6.17 confirmation of phone interview

                       6.20. interview and got a conditional offer

                      6.21. accept the offer at 1:00am, got email afternoon about required pre-employment Documentation, education proof, driver's abstract, reference check and so on.

3,I submitted full vaccine proof then got the latest email,i guess so, 

 yes , i did not do the wonderlic test,just got interview , am I lucky ? i did wonderlick test 5 or 6 years ago, but when i tried to log in using the old 1, it did not exist,so i created a new account on ttc website. i dont know what the order, like wonderlic test 1st, then interview,then medical check and police check, or these checks go after document ?

right now , i have all the Documentation except employment letter, my current company told me, U can get it after 2 business days from HR, the questions is 

the recruiter always say  in the email " please submit documents within the next three business days "   however in the offer letter, its 3 months not 3 business days

and in the offer letter, i did not see the shadowing assignment, or maybe i dont which one is.

 

I thank you all of you who left messages/infos, it helped me a lot

p.s.  the interview guy said, right now a lot of operator applications, for me probably someday on 2023, he said  nobody knows when.

i know  this job has a long process, and i gave it up 5 years ago, because i know im bad at messy colors.  and i just knew couple of days ago, i can do others but subway and LRT, thats why Im here now. communicate my future colleagues ,yeah hope so.

in the future ,if everybody succeeds to become an operator, i heard , for the first  5 years, all split/night shift,life will be struggle.

sorry my english is not very strong, but i typed alot, hope u guys understand what im talking about, thank u for ur time. just do not forget my question, thx

               

what is your application status as of today?? me im still waiting for my educational evaluation because i study abroad.

I applied on jun 10th 2022, they received all my documents like education proof,medical report,police background check, mto letter,wonderlic test, job shadowing assignment ,full vaccined proof, offer sign paper,right now im waiting for the training date, the last recruiter said,someone will contact to me, however  there are several candidates before me,maybe couples of weeks for the start date.

Thx for asking me,i thought my english is too bad to understand, and i found ppl respond quickly in reddit but not here.

Gl to everyone who applied this ttc job, I will work hard on future ttc training days, to change my family's life, I heared many stories about fail on training days and probabtion days,thats scary for me.

Also the copy of driver licence,and abstract, refference check succesfully,English is my second language, i finished high school in Canada, so education proof is easy for me, i heard if high school dipolma and above  from abroad will be more complicated to the process, good luck to u,hope u everything goes well
