    She also said he was in a talent pool when he was recruited. He emailed HR regularly and also found out his position in that pool. That made me decide to email HR...they replied saying the talent pool 'wasn't complete and they would be in contact when it was'! :rolleyes:

    ..and I've read on here that the class sizes have been cut to 4 and internals are prioritised in the pool. So it all seems above board. I asked my wife what he did and she said "ticket collector", not sure if that means guard or station staff.

    My wife sat next to a GWR worker on the train to PLY and she mentioned I was in the talent pool and did he know anything about it. He said he had heard the talent pool was complete and they had selected 4x internal candidates for the first course.

    GWR Train Driver talent pool

    Wow! I used to commute the other way - from Plymouth to Indian Queens - not the nicest commute. Petefox83 & dabollikcs, I had the same thing when I originally applied to Exeter SD pool and it wasn't an issue. That was 1hr plus with the roads clear of traffic, all the lights on green and a...

    GWR DMI Plymouth

    I switched from Exeter TP to Plymouth TP after completing the initial assessment. I just emailed First Group HR. Not sure if it's possible later in the process.

    Omar, I can confirm that Zoom DMI is same as Danetime says - 2 interviewers. You have to show government issued ID to the webcam at the start of the interview and then email a scanned copy once the interview is over. Good luck.

    GWR DMI Plymouth

    Sorry for slow reply Dan. Yes I applied (originally for Exeter SD talent pool) in Aug 2019, but subsequently changed to Plymouth TP once things got rolling. I live near the Tamar Valley Line so it made sense.

    GWR DMI Plymouth

    Found out last week, I passed my DMI and am in the talent pool I was really nervous, it felt like a bit of a blur, but I remember spending quite a bit of time on what I knew about the company. I was also asked about a time when I went above and beyond in a customer service capacity. I expected...

    GWR DMI Plymouth

    Thanks Jacey. I've been on here for over a year and seen a few people called forward and wished it was me instead - it's not a nice feeling. Fingers crossed the movement continues. If I mess the interview up, there'll be another call up for someone!! Once I've had the interview hopefully I'll...

    I've been given a date for DMI interview, is anyone currently in training able to give me a broad overview of the training phase please? So I can show that I have researched it. Also any information on Plymouth working patterns/rosters would be handy and salary during training phase. Thanks in...
