Hi

Has anyone recently been invited to attend the graduate assessment center for Operation for Royal Mail in February/march 2017 or before ?

I wanted to know your views and experience of how the day went and any advise you can give ?

Many thanks

Have you been able to find out if anyone else at your AC has heard back?

Got an "update" some days ago... They refunded the expenses but no news about the AC 🤔

Hi, I have no idea but I'm guessing they will ring you either way or maybe by email if unsuccessful but not sure.. that's great, where did you do your AC?

I’ve heard nothing but have had my expenses back. They did tell me it could be 4-6 weeks from the date of the last assessment centre though

I know of someone on the inside. Though he doesn’t directly work in the graduate team, so he doesn’t know much detail coz it’s early on, but knows the content has changed - using new stuff. This was from a little over three weeks ago.

I've just stumbled on this thread again. I've completed the grad scheme and have actually left Royal mail after. If anyone wants any info on anything, I'll try and reply.

Did you learn useful skills? Was there a progression opportunity? And finally any good or/and bad points about the programme?

I learnt a few technical skills but there wasn't really any proper development in the Operations Scheme, it is different in the others. They are structured and some include further degree courses.

Of the 178 of us in my intake, 85% left within 3 years (2 years of the scheme and a further year after the programme finished) so I don't know if that tells you of the bad points or not.
