was just wondering about references. Are previous/current employers given a questionnaire to fill out(i.e ranking your performance in selected areas) or are they asked to give a general reference regarding your character?

I think it varies from force to force, which one are you joining?

The majority of employers will only provide a typed report which will say I can confirm that ........................worked for.....................from this date until this date. Due to civil litigation

Both my references for joining the job were like this.
