Gotta agree with Gremmie on this one.

I contacted Yanke & was told 2 years team then an option for single. I must admit their package looks good if you stay with the company. But I detest team driving & said so, bad enough for a week, let alone 2 years!!!!

The recruiter I dealt with said there is no option for single man driving before 2 years.

I remember doing double man to Gibraltar from Swindon.... Purgatory, then you've got to come back. Even worse. Yanke give you a number of expected journey times in their info pack, take a LONG REALISTIC look. 2 years of that & you'll be in the allotment.

This was the best place for fitness trg - if you ran to slow some bugger lobbed a brick over the wall so you had to run fast

However Yanke told me last month they were not looking for drivers (not that I want team work) So a bit surprised by this announcement! Can you confirm were and how recent this info is Spockil mate? if you dont mind and is this a sign that there is a bit of a up beat in the job market. It was said that the worse of the recession would start to turn around Aug Sept this year in a number of countries and Canada was one of them?

Not forgetting the fitness at the "Mill" where you had to climb 3 or 4 high bunk beds to get to your pit...

I think they are struggling to get LMOs. Plus, I don't suppose many of us stick the 2 year stint of double manning. I would imagine some strokes have been pulled in the past.

I wasnt doubting you spockil I was just curious to what they told me. The rumour is there are a lot of Canadian drivers looking for jobs as well, they will not issue LMO to us if there are Canadians willing to drive!

Most companies advertise 24/7, and not just for immigrant drivers it is also a requirement for LMO acceptence tho

Yes I realise this what I meant was that if there are Canadians applying for a job then they will not be able to issue an LMO

yea they have to advertise the job for 2 weeks before they can get an lmo and then they have to advertise again before they offer a full time job.
but if they are advertising then it may be a sign of things slowly picking up.

Well hope fully, there is nothing decent in the UK or at least in Scotland, I might have to take a bit of work on here in the UK when I am waiting for some sort of job offer from Canada, and it is looking pretty sparse up here!
