    Going to the assessment centre this Tuesday
    Where are you from? And where is your assessment center taking place?

    Just applied last Thursday (24th) for Information Technology, did the situational strengths test and was told a couple of minutes later I had passed.Then the next day they gave me a feedback report. Does anybody know how long it takes from this stage to know whether you're invited to an assessment centre? I know it does vary but how long did it take in your case?

    Things they tend to ask at interview is what do you know about BT? Why us? Why this particular apprenticeship? Sometimes questions on how good you are at working in teams etc that sort of thing but best thing to do is just look up more about the company and its apprenticeships and what interests you. All the best mate

    They took a long time to reply to me for my assessment day but i've got mine in watford on 4/4/16. You can always send them an email and ask, thats what I did after not hearing for a long period of time.

    I reverted to speaking to HR after 5+ emails which were unanswered in the target time frame of 48 hours. Found out the person dealing with my application form is out of the office until tuesday next week... Nothing since the 14th March would probably explain this.

    I just had to email them as logged into my applications and it shows Withdrawn under "Advanced Apprentice - Openreach BCD", the others are still active though. It sounds as though I may have done it so emailed just to make sure!

    You should find out if there's someone else who can deal with your application. But they do arrange assessment centres until mid may so if you don't hear by may I'd start chasing it up.
