    GWR Train Driver talent pool 2019/20

    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.

    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...

    Is that a joke, or do they genuinely not like long notice periods? Mine is 3 months.

    GWR Train Driver talent pool 2019/20

    I didn't know what they were looking for exactly, but I had heard from a GWR engineer that they are very keen on 'non-technical skills', so I tried to mention as many of them as I could (Google them). Things like 'communication, planning, anticipating risk, etc.' I also found that there wasn't...
