Re: Working days

Looking at an old rota I have, it changed but for the better. So, say for a couple of weeks your rest day might be a Monday then a couple of weeks it’ll be the Tuesday, then a couple of weeks it’ll be the Wednesday and so on and so forth which will eventually mean a long weekend off every so often.

Re: What score did you get at your ARC?

Congratulations Hydrops :slcl:. With an ARC score of 85 I’d say you’ve excelled, as the max score was 80 when I took mine at the start of the year. Congrats on the newborn too :slsm:

Re: Virtual interview

You didn’t, someone on another thread did. So are you vetted then put on a merit list?

Re: Virtual interview

Must be something in the water down there. Giving people start dates before they’ve been vetted.... telling people where they stand on the merit lists....

Re: Referred For A Decision

Too bloody right mate. I personally feel a lot better at the moment than I would if o was on the merit list. We’ll all get there in the end... might be nearing retirement age like but hey ho.
