Aurizon QLD coal train trainee "Expression of Interest"

 
  Barrett2309 Beginner

Hey All,
I applied for the first time with Aurizon QLD coal expression of interest earlier this year. I have received an email from Aurizon HR saying the intake has been put on hold for an undefined period of time.
Anyone else receive this email? Maybe they have put on enough qualified drivers or internal trainees, would anyone have any idea of when this intake could possibly happen?

Thank you for your help.

cheers

I received a similar email about a month ago in early May. One of the reasons was they don't have enough work to justify putting on trainees or qualified drivers and that recruitment will recommence once more work is available. Whenever that happens is anybodies guess, they may either have to re-advertise where you have to reapply or notify us via email whether you're still interested once recruitment restarts.

And yet a trainee school started at one of the nearby Coal North depots this very week.

Not all the unsuccessful interviewees for this class were actually informed of the decision on their file even as of today, and it sounds like the OP wasn't told that a class would happen at all.

It all reminds me of a Dilbert cartoon: "Welcome to HR.  Two drink minimum."

Barrett2309 Can I ask what depot you applied for or did you apply of all depots?  Rook which coal north depot are you talking about if you dont mind me asking?  I also applied for the trainee spots - another delay (oh well get used to them as I have been delayed many times)

Hi Persistent,
I apllied for all of them, but Gladstone Callemondah as the preferred depot. I have not heard of any trainee classes starting this week. I rang HR and they did not have any specific information but said they were hopefully going to restart the intake later this year.

They spent 3 days interviewing candidates for trainee drivers jobs in one of their Qld coal depots a week or so ago.

Any heard any more info on the Expressions of interest that I applied for a while ago. I ring the "helpdesk" and they have no information, much like myself. Getting frustrated!

Got an email today stating vacancy is cancelled due to business requirements or lack of business. This was for the role that I applied in March for Aurizon Qld Coal "expression of interest" qualified and trainee locomotive drivers.

Any news of jobs from Aurizion latley. My motherboard crapped it self so was without a computer for a while. Probably didn't miss anything. Has anyone spoken to the helpdesk regarding upcoming jobs? Any information of any kind would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi All,
I have received an email from Aurizon stating that "we will not be progressing your application"
This was for a Hughenden trainee "Expression of Interest".



gsxxxr_750,
Is coal north you are referring to above Mackay? Just wondering where the trainee driver schools are located. I have been told there has been no trainees given a position this year in central QLD. Only experienced locomotive drivers have been employed this year so far in central QLD.

I am determined to give these applications a good shot, not being dejected by the thanks but no thanks email is just one thing that will not get me down. I am actually glad I received an email with a person's name at the bottom of the email, first time I have received an email like this instead of a bulk email. Maybe this is a sign of madness from me!!

cheers all
