Interview

Post by harveydog » Thu Sep 27, 2007 3:05 pm

Hi All,

I am new to this site. I went for my interview yesterday for West Mercia and I feel like I havnt done very well.

My brain had good answers, but my mouth didnt say them haha.

Did anyone else feel like this after their interview. :cry:

Thanks

Jen

Yep I did I thought i'd totally blown it but I passed...lol I don't think anyone on my assessment day thought they had done well but all the people on here passed so don't worry!! when did they say you'd find out? I think we all found out 10 days after...

Thanks for your reply.

They said the middle of next week. Thats another thing. I hate waiting haha. I have the opinion that if a small white envelope plops through the letterbox, I havnt done well and if a big brown one plops through then I have. I have gave them my security forms and uniform forms and medical forms.

I am so worried. Just have to wait.

Well you'll get a medium sized white envelope...well we did at North Yorkshire anyway...lol They give you a feed back on how you did in each task and your score wether you pass or not...so that's good because if you don't get in this time you'll know what to brush up on next time! It killed me waiting too...there was a post strike on when I found out but luckily mine got here on the right day!! I couldn't breath when I was opening the letter...lol

Haha. I will be the same. Probably pass out from not breathing. I am hoping that they as quick as with the PIR tests results as I took them on the Tuesday and the results were back on the Friday.
:lol:

This time they will probably take forever. :roll:

Hi all,

Well I passed my interview. :D I got the news last Thursday (have been off work since then, moving house) and I lept up and down like a mad woman in my livingroom. :shock: Have posted back my acceptance of a postition (as long as my security checks go though), just have to wait for Royal Mail to sort themselves out and get it delivered to the police station haha.

Thanks to all of you who gave me a boost and confidence and I am so happy that I could squeal.

Love Jen
