    Anyone else waiting for a start date for York school? I am told that’s where my lom is trying to get me booked in but he can’t get a date out of them. It’s been 2 months so far. Is that normal? Of course I am keen to get started so each week being delayed is driving me mad! I hope it’s not like...

    On The numerical reasoning test I only answered 17 before I ran out of time. i passed the benchmark and was offered an interview shortly afterwards. I attended that and got the job, so don’t get worked up about doing it all. My personal opinion is you are better taking your time and getting...

    I sort of already thought I wouldn’t know much before new year so by that time scale I guess it was about right. they said in the interview that I would be April most likely for school so I am not banking on that happening any earlier right now.

    great news! Well done. I was one of the lucky ones as I got the first one I applied for. But I think that’s more because of Past military service than anything else to be honest. I was told I should be April for school so sounds like a similar time frame for us both. I am hoping to start before...

    Thanks for your advice. It’s appreciated. Normally if the majority are in a certain scheme then it’s most likely the best. i have a few days to check up on it in more detail anyway.

    Over the moon! I just accepted the grade two position at Wickenby SB. Now starts all the big decisions like pensions. Although I am not too bad with pensions I’d wouldn’t mind some advice on which seems to be the most pop of the two options. smart or care????

    the pass rate I am told is low. don’t worry about answering all the questions. I didn’t answer them all but I took my time to get them right and I got an interview so don’t let that worry you too much. Good luck!

    Don't rush into these tests. Aside from the links to the practice ones I’d recommend doing some additional online ones that you can find through google. Especially the numerical reasoning one.!! Check out working with %. I don’t think you can pause them once you have started them you have to...

    thanks for the reply. That’s just about my normal answers too. I trust your interview went well?? I just didn’t want them to think “this guys going to move on in 6 months time.” And not hire me because of that. In all honesty I don’t think I would even if the opportunity came up that quick, I...

    most likely so... he said you get used to being on your own. He was a really nice guy though. I am extremely grateful to him for taking the time to talk to me about stuff.

    I didn’t know until a few days ago that they are not supposed to let you in without permission so I’d advise against it until you have permission.

    Thanks for your reply. I’ve already been to the box a few weeks back before I found this forum. The chap was fantastic. It’s a very quiet G2 line so I wasn’t in his way. I just didn’t want to drop him in it at my interview if it could get him in trouble. But I want them to know I’ve been so...

    I am in the same boat about an interview. I am not too worried if the job is for me though. I did a fair bit of research before I applied. I am guessing you will have good and bad days the same as any other job. I’ve applied for a G2 job. I went to see a chap who’s doing it and he said “for...

    Would you not recommend bringing up the fact that i have visited the box already an interview? At the time didn’t know I’d needed permission. The chap in the box was great. He really helped me out and I’d hate to get him in trouble. But id like to highlight the fact that I’ve taken to time to...

    I have my first interview for a role in this industry in a few weeks time so I am starting to prepare for that. One topic I’ve found in the past to be an awkward one is progression, I am naturally progressive but I know sometimes that might not be what the manager wants to hear as they have...
