    Not had anything yet... not as desperate a situation for me but I could do with knowing so I can book a holiday! Saw your post before... Sarb said it would be by post early this week?

    Has anyone had interview dates yet? Desperately need to book the interview off this week at the latest or I won't be able to get the day off work. Hoping someone may have had a letter.
    Just a thought. But if Sarb said it would be early in the week and we are now at Thursday, you don't think Sarb actually meant early next week but typed this by mistake? Would explain why no one has heard....that or the post system is running at a snails pace.

    Snail pace... Snail mail... I think there might be a correlation!

    No, because it was early next week, last week. I guess there are just delays.

    Argh! WHY POST? Damn it, I'm currently picking mine up from the post office so probably won't know until Monday at the earliest. My stupid landlord hasn't fixed the post box for our flats yet

    Only had 2 days shadowing a surgeon and one shadowing a GP. But have had 5 years as a first aider, ambulance attendant and 4 years as a training officer of a unit in St John ambulance along with 2 week and a half voluntary trips with street kids in Morocco.

    It literally may be the postal issue though and yours may arrive Monday, either that or those who have the 1st week of interview receive a letter this week and those doing the second week of interviews get there's next week?

    I'd say my work experience is average, nothing spectacular.

    To be honest at this stage it's probably just a post office thing, they are renowned for being unreliable! But they do deliver on Saturdays so it'll probably come tomorrow!

    Have the interview invites been sent via second class post? That might explain why some have them and others don't.

    Just looked at the envelope it came in and yes it was 2nd class post. Amyyy24 made a good point that there is always tomorrows post before the inevitable wait to monday morning.

    Don't worry I'm not too concerned. I'm still planning on smashing Swansea next week before I let Notts start getting to me
    Let's celebrate your interview invite though! :yup::congrats::danceboy:

    Thought it might be 2nd class, they'll be sending out a fair few I imagine. However my offer had better be sent pre-12 same day premium service.

    Haha thank you, still in mild shock that I have got 3/3 interviews after the previous cycles being rather barren of interview offers.

    Ah yeah its the last week of Swansea interviews next week isnt it, well you will do fine no doubt. If you stay overnight for the interview then make sure you google where restaurants or take away's are before you head out the hotel. I ended up taking a huge tour of the city center after setting my heart on chinese and it took me an hour to find one that was actually only 5 mins away from my premier inn (fail!). Debating whether to repeat the experience for Notts now haha.
