I am still waiting too. It is very frustrating as it has taken them much more time than initially promised.

What is even more annoying is that a handful has received offers, clearly they have done some of the evaluation to offer the positions to the best first. Surely they would have been able to reject some of us by now, why keep us hanging? A bit disrespectful to keep candidates waiting for two months after a full day of assessments to be honest. We had to do video interviews on a short notice over Christmas (e-mail on Christmas Eve!!!), as if that wasn't odd enough, now this... disappointed with them.

And I don't know about you, but I'd rather receive a rejection, which is followed up by feedback later, rather than wait for two months.

Have to agree, its not been dealt with very well at all. Seem to be finding that with my other assessment centres too, cancelled a week before I was due to travel over two and a half hours to get there, hotel and train booked and everything. Not very professional at all.

Yeah its not good at all. We were initially told that the couldn't give us an exact length of time that it would take to get back to us as we were one of the first assessment centres and it wouldn't be until the rest had finished. They did then say probably only 2-3 weeks. 8 weeks later and still nothing. Maybe they have rejected some people? Its only the handful of successful's that seem to have posted on here though. I suppose no news is good news as at least we weren't rejected. Although if it is a rejection i would much rather have found out sooner rather than later. Just getting really impatient now

Just to throw a spanner in the works, someone from my AC has been offered a section manager's position rather than a place on the retail grad scheme. None of the rest of us have heard anything though!

I've met someone else today who were told after 6 weeks they could be section manager but no place on retail scheme either...

Did you log into the right portal? They have a grad scheme portal and a general recruitment portal. I accidentally signed into the wrong one a few weeks ago and got worried when I couldn't see my application. :P

Is there anyone else who is still waiting to hear on the outcome of the assessment centre? Earlier I received a second response to an email I sent last month which they had already replied to, saying exactly what had been said before (Application on hold, will be in contact soon). Cant really understand whats happening at all!
