Re: Met PCSO - application delays

Hi,

Yeah, I chose exactly the same as you. It's all well and good choosing places like Westminster, but the travel cost would be too much lol. So closish to home, but not too close : D

Re: Met PCSO - application delays

How's it going everybody? I'm in the same boat as well, passed my day two assessment on the 18th of July. I seem to remember when phoning for the original application in February that they would stop recruiting at 3000 applications. I can't understand how they would have to cancel courses because o...

Re: Met PCSO - application delays

That's a fair answer lol, having the job helps in this. The fitness test is fine, so long as you have reasonable fitness. The beep test, although I believe is designed for near constant jogging, never ends up that way. We all ended up running too fast and being shouted at by the instructor. The leve...

Re: Met PCSO - application delays

Homer J, Well that's something at least. The day 2 makes you feel almost euphoric, considering how much effort you put into the day one! The man who does the fitness test is very 'efficient'. I really was expecting him to speak with an Austrian accent, quite a presence. I'm slightly irritated now be...

Re: Met PCSO - application delays

Hello Homer J, One of my mates has not even received a day one date yet and she applied quite some time a go. I think the Met were taken somewhat by surprise by the amount of applications they received. I think that's the way a lot of these big institutions work. I work at a Royal Mail sorting offic...

Re: Met PCSO - application delays

Hello all, Although it's irritating, it is nice to see that I am not the only one become more scared by the day by lack of movement. I've had a very gutting few weeks, because I missed September's intake, was offered a place on October's intake but because of sodding mobile technology, i.e. my phone...

Met PCSO - application delays

Hello everyone, I was just wondering whether anybody else was suffering the same as me with regards to the Met. I did my day 2 about 5 weeks a go now and I still haven't had any real communication with the recruitment team since then. I have emailed on several occasions and have been replied to in v...

Re: Passed day 1 assessment, still no results

Hello,

The HR people at most forces are extremely slow. Email or ring them up, it can't hurt. You've likely done well : )

Re: My application was accepted, but...

Hello! I think I might have a reason for the lack of replies from the met. I am currently waiting on starting dates because I recently passed my day two assessment. All my vetting has been processed, my references have been checked. I made a point of ringing up the HR hotline and they told me that e...
