waiting game

Post by mikkyb » Mon Nov 19, 2007 7:42 am

Hello people,reading the boards for last few months now and learnt alot so thanx.
Posting at this god awful time because im currently at work doing night shift. Me and a good friend of mine started the whole application process back in january 2007,passed everything together,application,assessment,interview and medical but he got his uniform fitted ages before me and has now begun training! happy for him gutted for me,see we worked overnight together and now stuck here by meself with an oddjob lookalike from james bond, someone who resembles the honey monster with questionable hygiene and a lady with a dodgy eye who i can never workout if she is looking at me!
Why does it take so long!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! applying to cleveland btw.
Any help or advice or if anyone in same position please reply.

It's the same in North Yorkshire mate...a few of us on this site have been put on hold (read the recruitment thread on this section) the thing to do is just hang on and stay positive as resilience is one of the core compenticies...lol

Yeah I was gutted too mikky, but Karen's worse off than me because she sort of got a start date but still got the same letter as me! You want to do what Kizzy sugested and give em a ring!

start on monday, got my uniform fitting on friday. i've been lucky as west yorkshire have only taken 19/20 people on. we're just replacing the PCSOs who have left to become PCs. give recruitment a ring and see what they say, they are very helpful and really friendly (well mine was, i had to ring up or email about ten times about my references lol).

Hope you hear something soon. :)

hey, at least it might be nice and warm when you've finished your training and not all wet and snowy :)

k xx

ps: join the forum, there's lots of nice people on here and interesting things :)

i work for cleveland - took around 4 months after sending them back the security forms to getting a start date. keep ringing them up every couple of weeks for an update and ask when the next intake is. this part of the process takes the longest - hopefully you'll have some good news soon :wink:
