how long after your application was sent did you get a reply? btw, 25 mins for the numerical test is joke, the questions were reasonable but the time limit was ridiculous
Haha, I study maths at Oxford and that numerical test gets my blood pressure up more than exams do. The test is a joke - you're right, none of my partner's managers would be able to do well on that test in the time limit.
Since I work at Marks and Spencer, some of the questions will be easier to me than they are to others who do not. For the talent screener, I would advise you have make sure you think through your answers, putting yourself in a managers shoes, thinking about what the best manager would do in that situtation. For the reading test, its pretty basic. However, make sure you do the practice questions for the numerical test, as they prepare you (granted not a lot) for the real thing.
Good luck mate
HI EVERYONE! i have recently applied for the trainee management scheme at M&s and have completed the verbal and the next one is the numerical! i applied for the Tesco one a little while ago and failed because of the numerical one. i was just wondering how hard this one actually is and if there are any tips that can be given.
Im having trouble reviewing my status at all, and only have the email about 3 weeks ago saying my application is complete and that i have to wait until the closing date has passed to hear whether ive been successful or not. Ive emailed them about my problem, hopefully that will clear things up
I had my assessment today, if anything a very interesting and well structured, but extremely nerve-wracking and tiring day!
Really hoping for a positive outcome, but like most things you never know, it's difficult to make a judgement of how you got on with each task, apart from perhaps the interview. The chair of the board of assessor's said that this year there were 13000 applicants, there are six assessment centre's over the next week or so, with 8 - 10 in each group...However, there are only 10 JOBS!
The odds are a little low to say the least, so good luck to all!
