    Hi folks. I got the talent pool email today too. My DMI was end of June. Some people are saying they’re disappointed but my guess is this talent pool is how they keep tabs with everyone at various stages of the process. Bottom line is we’ve passed the DMI and still in the mix. Onto the next one

    Quite right mark, I’m in no mad rush. I work in the railway anyway. Nothing with regards to admin moves quickly. Glacial at best.

    I applied for the position which ended on the 27th December. Had my tests in Feb but couldn’t make my first DMI appointment due to work. Had my DMI last Friday. Long process so far but I’ve heard of people taking much longer.

    Sorry to hear that Jord as Fraz says it’s always difficult to judge these things. I’m in the same boat with respect to waiting till the end of July. So it’s not a “no thanks” just yet. Strange one.

    That’s good to know Jord, we’re either both right or both wrong haha. What time were you today? 10am?

    Just home after my DMI today. Think it went ok, I felt as if I could’ve been a bit better as in more polished in my answers but I’ll put that down to nerves and I’m pretty hard on myself anyway. Obviously it’s up to the people on the other side of the table so we shall see. Best advice I can...

    Good afternoon all. I’ve got my DMI next Friday, the email says Monteith house, George square but that’s it. There’s no postcode and I’ve not been able to find it on google maps? Am I missing the obvious here? Secondly, has anyone in here arranged a station visit for Perth? Is it easy to set...

    Hi Kendo, I have my DMI next week and I was hoping if you could give me an account of your experience and how it was for you? Thanks.

    Fingers crossed for good news. What sort of things did they ask you? Mine was meant to be today but had to postpone due to work. Hopefully hear something later in the year

    I would hope that if people can’t attend in this batch of DMI’s they will get a chance later. I’m still to get a response regarding a reschedule, so no idea what’s going on. I know people have said they won’t change. I’d like to hear it from them straight.

    I’m surprised they’re not able to reschedule? There must be loads of people in the same situation. I still haven’t had a response either way which isn’t ideal. Maybe there’s lots of people passing the initial tests so people who can’t attend the interviews makes the job of sliming numbers down...

    I’m in a similar position. How did you contact them? I emailed the sender and copied in recruitment but had no response as yet.
