    Next1988 how far through the process are you?

    Bengebenge I don't think anyone else is that far through, maybe they are doing tech first. Did it have one of the early deadlines like marketing did?

    how long was it between you doing the telephone interview and hearing back from them? I had a telephone interview for Skybet last week and was wondering.

    Thanks

    They told me it would be two working weeks, it was more like 6-7 working weeks. However I think now that they're doing ACs they tell you like 10 days before, judging by when other people have heard, so I think it's more to do with that than when you had your interview

    Thanks Callipygian,
    Not been that long since my telephone interview so (slighlty) reassured by that.

    Hope the assesment centre goes well for you.

    What was the AC like? Was there a group exercise, presentation and interview?

    Best of luck by the way

    Hey,

    Can anyone give any tips on what to expect from the sky technology assessment centre?

    What kind of group discussion exercises and programme/business specific exercises did they have?

    Cheers

    Hey guys, rejection from sky. Not at all bothered though because i have been offered a job that i prefer elsewhere. They give you an email to email if you want feedback (within 4 weeks!!) and my email bounced, which is a bit wierd but there you go.

    Been 2 weeks now, pretty gutted as I can only assume I haven't got the job. Out of curiosity how did they contact you?

    Hi,
    I have my ac coming up - could you please give more details on what you did on yours?

    Were there SHL tests?
    What was the group exercise about?
    and if there was any program specific exercise?

    Would really be grateful for some insight.

    Thanks a lot!!!
