    Hi,

    Is anyone else applying for the first EE graduate scheme?

    How is everyone getting on, after applying me and two mates got sent an e-mail that invited us to do two online tests, and if passed a telephone interview will follow.

    However upon completion of the tests my two mates got invited back to do a further test and I am still waiting for a response. Anyone else in the same boat?

    Do you mean they have completed the two tests and waiting to hear back?

    I am still waiting to hear back from them after the two tests as well.

    I've also applied to this and got invited to do the numerical and verbal tests after completing them I got invited to take another test. On the email for second test it did say they had done a through review of the application.

    So those waiting, they may be taking their time with that.

    I found it quite helpful to do the practice questions for the numeracy tests over and over to get my brain going. Maths is best learnt through repetition ...the literacy test wasn't too bad, just remember when to appropriately use 'false' and 'cannot say'

    Yes they have completed the two tests, and have now completed the third online test (situational test)... I'm still waiting to either be invited to this third test, a phone interview as mentioned as the next step, or my rejection letter

    Same boat as me then, I was asked to do the situational test first and then the other 2 after that.

    I have applied and was sent the tests the other way round. I did numerical and verbal and then was sent the situational judgement tests. Just waiting to see what happens now. I thought the numerical was hardest as it was so time pressurised.

    Yeah, I didn't manage to finish them. The questions were answerable, but another 5 minutes would have made a big difference.

    I wonder why they've had people do the tests in different order? I've only had to do the situational one which I did yesterday and still waiting to hear.

    Strange, must make it tricky to compare.

    Hi,

    I also applied to the EE grad scheme at the end of March. I was invited to take a numerical and verbal reasoning test. A week later they sent me an email stating they had a review over my application and invited me to do a situational test. The e-mail to the situational test stated, if successful I would have one further test, a telephone interview and then assessment centre. Been over a week now and have heard nothing. Anyone else heard anything back yet?

    Where does it say on WIKI Jobs people are having phone interviews? I presume we are all on a shortlist and will be compared when everyone has completed their tests.
