    Looking for "Office" jobs to get your foot in the door? Coast Mountain Bus is in need of more "Clerical Relief Pool" staff, starting at $20 an hour range.

    SkyTrain/"BCRTC" is in need of a "Rail Operations Clerk" in the $27 an hour range.

    Good Luck!

    ^Everything is about safety and being nice/reasonable over strictly following rules.

    I just passed the driving assessment. What kind of questions do they ask your references? One of my supervisors from just under five years ago didn't even remember me, but they insisted on including him. :/

    Not exactly an active thread but can anyone tell me how long it takes for them to check references...? Going on a week now.

    The reference check was one of the longest waits for me mostly because it was hard to get a hold of a certain reference, I want to say it took 3-4 weeks for me, but it should be quicker for you if your references are readily available.

    Thanks. I talked to them all recently but at least two of them are the types that wouldn't exactly hurry to call them back if they got voicemail. And one that they insisted on didn't even remember me, as mentioned. A bit awkward.

    Hello, the hiring process can take months. I would say 4 to 6 months on average. Occasionally longer or quicker depending on how many trainees they need every 2 weeks.

    Hello from London!

    Just noticing two items worth mentioning:

    CMBC has reposted the Conventional Transit Operator Trainee posting once again.

    And, SeaBus is increasing service as of May 19 to every 15 minutes everyday, until 9pm! Joining the Frequent Transit Network.

    Before giving References out, you should have called your References and talked to them first and give them a heads up that Translink HR will call them and what to expect.

    I did that. That's how I found out one of them didn't remember me. I didn't want to include him but CMB insisted on all supervisors from the last 5 years, and he barely qualified, but we never worked the same shift.

    Hello!! Congrats!! Not to worry I think mine took 2 weeks as well. At this stage you pretty much got the job. The longest part I had to wait for was waiting for the next class to put me in. I think I waited a month and a half for the next class, waiting is the worst!! This message is for Ramajit!

    I guarantee you will hear something this week for sure. The whole process took me seven months. Unless your medical went really bad, the physical part, I don't see any reason why you won't proceed. Don't worry!! YOU GOT THIS!!!!!

    Hello All; I'm back from vacation!

    Just noticing that they have re-posted the Community Shuttle posting.

    And: FYI: There is a detailed list (And Survey) of major proposed service changes in the Richmond-South Delta region on the main TransLink website. www.translink.ca/ Feel free to offer your opinion if any of the changes affect you.
