Eddie Stobart Interview & Assessment

Railway vacancy latest jobby PremiumTrucker » Wed Jun 27, 2012 10:33 am

Hi guys, new on here.

Just had a phone call from Stobarts to be invited for interview and assessment drive.
Just wondering if anyone on here has been, just want to no what happens etc. Was also told i need 9hrs off before my interview. Did you? I might struggle for that?
Another thing, how long was you there for?

Guessing the 9 hours off is so you can legally drive !

Surat job vacancy 2014 1040by roadrunner » Wed Jun 27, 2012 11:10 am

I did it about a month ago, present both parts of your license which will be photocopied, i was then given the 25 question quiz paper composed of drivers hours and RTD and 6 pictures of the more obscure roadsigns , i was told it was not a pass or fail test so don't panic merely an indicator of your drivers knowledge i got 23 /25.Then onto the driving assessment appoximately 30 mins, they are looking for road positioning, checking both mirrors constantly and keeping both hands on the wheel most important a few lads before me failed for this believe it or not !, a couple of easy reverses onto a bay no blindsiding required, i was not asked to couple or recouple that would be taught at the Widnes academy on the 2 day induction, "drop and catch" they call it.The bloke on my assessment was about 60ish and a DSA approved ADI but came across as a down to earth best workmate, very pleasant and talkative chap indeed.

If you pass that stage then you have a face to face interview with the Ops manager,where he will outline your pay rates and T&C's etc

good luck. If you risk nothing, you gain nothing Bear Grylls Canadian high commission india vacancies jobs

I went to one at crick a few months back.

Licenses copied etc, then out for. 45-60in drive ending in a reverse into a bay, no blindside and just general driving. Drive as if you were on test, just not as bad lol.
No couple or uncouple and my assessment was in a manual as well.

Good luck. byebyegti MEMBER Posts: 21Joined: Thu Mar 01, 2012 9:10 pm Top

Hi I had the interview and assessment about a year ago now and depending who your driver trainer is it can vary how long your drive is. You take the written exam and if I remember your only allowed to get six questions wrong unless it's changed. When you've finished that you go on a drive mine lasted about fifteen mins I did the drive came back did a reverse between two trailers then did a uncoupleing of the trailer that was it nothing to hard, then you have your sit down interview if that goes ok basically youve got the job but you should have at least nine hours off other wise when your company down loads your card you will get a infringement. But be aware it's nothing like you see on the t.v. the pay is 8.10 a hour for the first year you get a 13.00 a night meal allowance and after three months a 5.00 a night fuel bonus. If you do the job properly don't damage the truck or any property and don't take the mick you'll be ok. falcon71 MEMBER Posts: 1Joined: Sun Jul 08, 2012 1:54 pm Top

Mcjrotc job vacanciesby haribo4000 » Thu Jul 26, 2012 11:21 pm

more lambs to the slaughter! mwah ha ha ha ha!!

I love it really Email for job vacancy examples

like has been said on previous posts, it all depends on the assessor and depot.

I did mine at Newark a while back, It consisted of a 15 min drive round the block followed by a reverse into a bay in a completely empty yard, followed by a 5min chat with Ops manager who basically just asked which shift I wanted. Easy!

But then a mate of mine went a week later with a different assessor and endured a longer drive followed by a reverse onto one of the more tighter doors in the yard and wasn't even allowed a small correction shunt, so subsequently failed the driving assessment.

Luck of the draw im afraid mate.

Good luck! Unhcr sri lanka vacancies job
