    DLA is non rolling. Their deadline closed on 31st Jan so they'll take a while. I believe their assessment days are around 14th Feb so you will find out before then.

    Heard slaughters have sent out some rejections can anyone confirm
    Anticipating mine very soon.

    Also note that they are holding interviews until the 5th of February (this Thursday) so I wouldn't expect any decisions to come out before then.

    There are people who received offers already? They haven't replied me...it has been two weeks since I interviewed.

    How do people generally prepare for competency based interviews?

    I try to bullet point (more than 1) examples for the most common competencies like teamwork, leadership etc etc and then bullet point what I did, the outcome and what I have learnt. I normally do this just to think answers through without writing a script and to have a number of examples to hand if I've already used one example elsewhere.

    Am I missing something in terms of prep?

    Just completed my video interview for Irwin Mitchell. I did terribly bad; lack of preparation and nerves. I'm embarrassed that they will watch it haha it's a shame though

    For anyone still preparing to do it; it is all comprntancy based questions. By the looks the app chooses them at random.

    Good luck everyone!

    Stay positive! I often do good when I think I've done bad and vice versa!!

    Can I ask what questions you were asked?

    Thanks

    I don't think I can really tell you the exact questions but they were basic competency questions like "describe a time when...". Nothing out of ordinary of you are prepared. Hope that helps.
