    Alright, I was the other Scot at the Birmingham assessment centre. Lost you at the end for going to watch the Celtic game. Got the bar guy in the hotel to put it on the TV, think he was a bit concerned when I started swearing at the TV by myself after Shakthar scored their 2nd.

    Sorry to hear you didn't get the job, don't think I've been successful either but still haven't received any 'feedback'.

    Ah nice one, sorry you didn't hear back, didn't know you got it on the at the hotel I would have stayed. Poor game but great return leg. See were in the group of death 'champions'. Stick at it, Capita assessment centre will be good experience for future ones and hope you land something soon. I'll be interested to hear feedback as I didn't expect to get rejected and had the account director role and problem solving role so fairly critical!

    Ahh its fine, I already have something sorted with HP anyway. Not to sound like a sour grape, but after the assessment centre I don't think I wanted the job anyway. I have to say i'm surprised you were unsuccessful! That group task was tough though with everyone shouting out and chatting rubbish just to try and get noticed.

    Yeah, its gonna be tough, I'm not expecting the same results as last year, but we've got nothing to lose.

    Good luck anyway, was good to meet you! Definitely the most interesting person i've met at an assessment centre.

    Yeah, pretty much. I'm not sure how it was as I could not attend it so I just had to fill out a form with preferences etc.

    Have just emailed asking for the feedback which was promised for last week. Perhaps they didn't appreciate my "if I don't get the job then I'm smashing the mug" joke as I left :/
