Re: Fitness Test Issues

Pollypocket, I absolutely feel for you girl! After they cancelled mine, they have offered me to reschedule for 4th, I came back to them to confirm within 15 minutes and a day later I got reply they can’t do 4th anymore as it’s fully booked! But your story is shocking and definitely wouldn’t leave it...

Re: Fitness Test Issues

The joke still going - got another email saying that they are now fully booked for 4th so they have to cancel me further with no new date given - they are absolutely ridiculous!

Re: Fitness Test Issues

The reason for it was “due to change the opening hours of the centre”, yet they’ve booked me a month later for the same hour as I was supposed to attend today, f#ck logic I guess 😂

Re: Fitness Test Issues

Alright!! As I got into a car I got an email about cancellation! Absolutely gutted. They didn’t give a reason whatsoever, just that they will contact me in a due course to reschedule. I so wanted to have this over and done 😩

Re: Fitness Test Issues

Thanks you all, I am the type of person to read everything very carefully and I found it on their candidate portal 😅 apparently I’ll wait and see there if there is anything more to fill.

Re: Fitness Test Issues

Thanks Taff, I just want this over and done really!
Do you know anything about the consent form? I’ve printed out the health questionnaire but it says I should bring both this and the consent form which I don’t seem to find anywhere on the portal so it’s confusing me!

I remember going to my ARC suited and booted, felt a right nob head as I was the only one who made that kind of effort, everyone else looked like they were just going out for the day!

Re: Fitness Test Issues

Guys, having my test tomorrow and some last minute questions, besides ID and health questionnaire, what else am I supposed to bring for the appointment? Also is it best to come in your sport gear or wear sth smart and change there? Don’t wanna make a bad impression 🤣

Re: Negative family responses to job offer

I am so lucky for my family to be excited and happy for me, my mum is really proud but I think I got it easier as my sister is in army! Most of the comments comes from lack of knowledge, I am sure they will be proud of you once you will start and show them that you can cope. Good luck mate and the m...
