    One was on team work and the other about showing an eagerness to learn (this tripped me up as i wasnt expecting it at all so definitely prep as much as you can!)

    Just FYI, you shouldn't really share interview details on here. It gives those who haven't taken the interview a big advantage over those who already have.

    Obviously its nice for people to have some guidance but giving the exact topics is a bit much.

    Yeah but if your through to the next stage, it doesn't really matter.

    I did the situational judgement test today (which I thought was tough as answers all good!) - when did you all receive the numerical test as I haven't had anything yet

    That wasn't too bad... the hypothetical situation question threw me quite a bit though!

    I've just started my application for the General Management Scheme. I have noticed that in the Work Experience section they ask for "Achievements" of our jobs. Hmmm.... My current job is in a bar so I'm not really sure what to put. It is quite a small pub so we don't really have performance reviews or anything so I don't have any stats to back up things I have done.I once ran a quiz night so I guess I could put that.

    For those who have applied for CE&MC, I have called TFL a few times and have received different messages. The latest thing I have been told is that for those who have completed the video interview, you won't hear back for some time as there won't be an assessment centre until next year (usually January).

    I applied for the same scheme last year and got to the same stage - it was then the telephone interview - and it took them two months to tell me if I was successful (I had passed the telephone interview but was in the middle ground where you're not sure if you'll get to the assessment centre).

    It seems that you're penalised if you apply to the scheme early (I applied for this on the 2nd October and the 27th October last year) as they tend to do applications as and when they come in. As you can imagine November time is the busiest as people worry they're too late. Judging from the forum last year, it was these people who didn't have to wait as long to hear back about their process.

    Also, TfL have around two weeks off in December for Christmas, so that adds to the wait time. I was hoping that because I applied even earlier this year, that I'd receive answers way before then. Like that's going to happen.

    Word of advice, badger TfL.

    Hi
    How did you call them? Is there a contacts page on the website that I missed maybe?
