    Hate to say it guys, but usually, if you don't hear back from an assessment centre within the day, or the day after, it means you've been unsuccessful. On the day, HR will always tell you, "we will contact you within a week", but this is just to stop the unsuccessful people from bugging them.

    However, there is always hope, and I suggest you just call them and find out, but don't get your hopes up. And forget the whole anti operations thing, its a good job that pays well, and doesn't have nearly the amount of stress level that s&t and IBD have. Furthermore, there is always an opportunity to move to front office from ops if you prove yourself.

    That's the standard lie recruiters tell people to get them into Ops. I'd definitely recommend you read this

    There are a lot of posts from people who work(ed) in Ops in there.
