    How long does it take to hear back from telephone interview? has been 10 days now
    I joined tsr specifically to reply to this! Mine's also been 10 days. I had my interview on the 31/5/16 and she said several times that I'd hear within seven days. I had a look on the long running lloyds scholars thread, loads of people said that they got an email saying they passed the interview on the same day as they had it. Has anyone actually heard back after their telephone interview?

    I think it's worth asking them through their contact page as I am in a similar position of not having been contacted. I've just sent off an email in regards to whether there will be that possibility. I have a sneaky suspicion that because it was first come first serve that there are no longer any slots available and so we haven't been contacted but hopefully their reply will prove me wrong.

    Hey! hope the phone interview went well. how long after the interview did they let you know if you passed? I have mine next week and was wondering if you could help me out with a few questions they asked or if they asked anything out of the ordinary? thanks x

    They still haven't got back to me yet! I think this is due to the extended deadline for some universities, they did say that everyone gets asked the same questions to make it fair, but I can't tell you any because that would put you at an unfair advantage to others.

    But ... there's nothing out of the ordinary and if you are right for the programme you probably wont need any prior preparation so don't stress good luck x

    I'm in the same predicament, they replied to my email and said that our applications are still being considered it is just that they have had an overwhelming number of applications to process and a new batch of telephone interview slots will go up in the coming days. Hope that helps!

    Had my phone interview on the 27th May, still not had any feedback. I think they want to process every single phone interview before proceeding to the next stage.

    I agree that must be what they're doing. But I got told I'd hear within seven days, so they must have known that wasn't realistic?

    I also think it could be to do with the changes being made at Lloyds right now, lots of redundancies so possibly their HR department is a little busy with that. The whole thing is v frustrating though, especially in the middle of exams.

    Yeah I think the extended deadline at some places might have also stretched it out so I would assume that they are waiting for all their applications to be sifted through as well

    Anyone else just get an email telling them to book onto an assessment centre? I checked the website and the assessment centre dates were listed but with no location? I booked onto one regardless and sent an email saying there's no locations listed. So my assessment centre could be hundreds of miles away for all I know.

    I also got said email. As they didn't say a location and heeding their 'first come first served' warning (I worried that all the slots would go before they clarified) I picked the best date and hoped for the best. Then got an email saying I'd booked for Solihull. That would be a bit of a hefty trip for me!- does anyone know if they're all in Solihull or if each date has a specfic location?

    They replied to my email saying they're ALL in Solihull. Which is weird because in previous years they've been all over the place. They said they'll pay for the hotel if you live more than 2 hours away from it...but I live about 1.5 hours so it's a long journey but not long enough!!

    Ah, thanks for that. Yeah, you really don't want a 1.5 hour journey before a really pretty early assessment day! Sorry to hear it.

    It's interesting though, if they're paying for hotels for what must be a good proportion of interviewees, surely that must be as expensive as running the centres in a couple more locations. Even if they're cheap hotels. Why just one place?
