    The first assessment centre isn't till the 17th April and they go on through till 3rd May. If it goes the same way the graduate scheme has we should hear back with our result the week starting 7th May.

    Hi, been told of my personnel manager that our assessment day is a similar format to the graduate and options sign on days. Face to face interview, team related tasks and role play. Surely everyone will be suited & booted. Good luck guys.

    Hi

    Ive been wondering for ages how the day would be structured, no one in my store (management or HR) knows what is going to happen since I applied doing it online rather than going through the store. Since then ive been put on pre options anyway to help me if I dont succeed.

    Good luck to everyone, I shall see the Glasgow bound folks on the 19th

    Ow3n are you doing the store management scheme? I was under the impression the deadline was December.

    Student from what they told me it doesn't sound like they know themselves. I was told either lol! I think if we were to be successful it would be a phone call. Rejection email on the other hand. I would hope that they wouldn't dream of offering a job over email lol.

    Yeah they said either phone or email on our day too. Though from what I gathered from those on the graduate scheme it was phonecall for acceptance and email for rejection as Sairs has pointed out also.

    How has everyone got on at the other assessment centres? What did you like the most about it? I enjoyed the Presentation and Interview. The group exercise was all about people taking the glory but I think a couple of people will be mark down as they didnt want to listen to what other people had to say.

    I thought my assessment went well, I was the youngest candidate on the day at 17. If I'm honest I enjoyed all of my tasks, especially the written one, my interview went well too. The group discussion was nothing like I expected it, I thought people would try to dominate but before anyone had the chance to talk I suggested that we go round the table and suggest our points and If anyone had questions they should raise their hand so no one would interrupt etc. What about you?
