The call weekends

Post by Stan44 »

Hi all, I'm just wondering if anyone has or do they know if they do start date calls on the weekend? Just curious to see if I could get mine this weekend at all or will I go into next week?

Cheers

I've had two calls now and both times they've asked me the same questions! :slhmm: That was so disappointing as I just want to know my start date already!

I have just had an email to book a time slot for the call with a start date.. attached to the email were documents about an interview and that it would last 30 minutes, with strength based questions etc. I’ve passed all my vetting and fitness test. I’m a bit confused, as I thought it would just be a phone call. I’ve had a previous phone call asking about my notice period etc. and that they would be in contact shortly with an actual date. Has anyone else experienced this? I’m not sure why I would need another interview🤦🏼‍♀️ It also talks about showing my ID but I’ve already done this on two occasions previously...🙄

If you log in and look at your booked appointments it will show your booked slot and it should say to ignore any emails etc. This was showing on my application centre but it's just an error, all it will be is a phone call about your start date and your training location, no interview 🙂
