Extremely helpful Dman, THANK YOU. Look forward to being your colleague soon. Another question, were you offered PAT directly after the interview or was there another waiting period.

Pat was offered to me after I passed the computer test , however, the Interviews opened up before the PAT date came so I was able to get that out of the way. Took 1-2 days after interview to hear if I passed or not

If all goes well on interview you're probably here for the pat test right after that. My initial email they sent me they said the pat was after the interview

Was the second medical the same as the first medical ? What kind of tests did they perform at the medical?

They give you a drug test. Eye and hearing exam, an ekg, a breathing test, and an over all examination of your body. The examination is basically to make sure your body is physially able to perform the work. the brething test they make you breath as hard as you can into this hanheld machine

Dman, you took the PAT already right? If so what did it entail? I had my interview today waiting further notification.

Emoney , yea took the Pat test. You had set up , climb and strap in ( around a telephone pole ) a 24 ft extension ladder ., use a ratchet to open a door In the correct series they tell you to , carry 10 40 lb sand bags which were top soil from the front of a truck to the back than to a area they tell you ( bout 15 ft away ) than back to truck so basically about 60 squats your doing .... You also have to assemble a 2 pc ladder and climb into a manhole than take the ladder out and break it down
They show you a presentation and will do everything before each test. Ask all the questions you have to before they tell you to start. Each section is timed also.
