Rail car driver

Recommended Posts

I live in Perth, Western Australia.

I work in a commercial contract and engineering support field for the Navy. Very, very good job.

 

I have aptitude testing for a job as a rail car driver, that's  metro passenger trains in a few weeks.

Yay!

Damn excited.

Drive trains for a job, who wouldn't want to do that?

I've also just been called by Trenitalia for an aptitude test on the 19th of November!

Sorry, been off the air for a few months.

Out of 2600 applicants l made it to the final 100ish and am in the pool of candidates for the next 12 months. Didn't get the first intake in Feb, but I'm in the pool and swimming towards the shallow end so to speak. 

Training is 6 months then 3 months probation doubled up with another driver.

Fingers crossed l get a position.

Italy, cool. I'm a bit tired so it took another 30 seconds for the penny to drop.

i think it went well... 

fact is, they'll either call me in six months time or not call me at all.

Yeah same kind of thing for me. The train network here is expanding so they will have at least 2 more intakes this year after February's one which l didn't get into.

Back to the desk job.

Same HR system for our driver intakes. Horrible slow wait for you turn.

You wouldn't happen to be a railcar driver by any chance would you?

More to the point, you're not the Ross that l know are you?

Just wondering.
