    In terms of timings I applied on the 13th Nov, got my acceptance to assessment center on the 29th Dec and went to it on the 1st of feb

    Converesly my bf applied 1st Nov and got his rejection email around 25th Jan so its all very random but tbh I would assume if you havent heard anything by now then to assume the worst

    Hope this helps

    They gave us an hour to prepare and suggested us to spend 45 minutes to work everything out and 15 minutes to prepare the presentation. I find it quite challenging as I'm a slow worker. Just try to keep track of ur time. There isnt much u can prepare before the day. Good luck!

    Thanks Patrick, can you tell me what it was based upon please, Was it an individual or group task? and a lot of data and graphs to draw upon? Sorry for the hassle!

    Just something to dwell upon that sometimes giving too much information away will play bad on you. After all this is a competitive role and people that went into assessment centres early will not have had the information you are requesting, I would err on the side of caution when giving away too much information for these tasks. I understand people are nervous but I personally would consider it an unfair advantage for people in the coming weeks to have all the information they need. Don't get cheeky.

    I agree, and with due respect to you lawless I wasn't too happy with the amount of information you provided. I didn't write anything because this is a public forum and you can disclose what you like. However, gaining this job position for me would enable me to marry my partner and (as she is not from the UK or Europe) allow her to migrate here. Many people here are in their final year of university or maybe just applying whilst they apply for other things. Some of the applicants will be more serious than others.

    Respectfully, I would ask you to edit the information you posted to disclose less. I think even knowing about the way the day works takes away some of the nerves that others who don't see the post would have. Having said that it's your choice and if you don't want to edit your post I won't complain any more.

    My assessment for retail management was early February. Was told they were aiming to respond by the end of February but it was highly likely it would go into early Marcg before we heard anything.
