    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Arriva Trains (Cardiff, Wales) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Basic one to one interview. Have worked for First Great Western for years and adopt a strong sales and service back round. They always recruit on price! Recruit young people, about 18, with no experience who cannot get out of bed in the morning and treat customers nice. Timewasters!
