I applied for the DWP EO Work Coach role on 24/3/21 and completed the Situational Judgement Test on 25/3/21. I got a reply on the 25/3/21 saying that I passed the test and my application is now being reviewed. How long does it take to get a reply/response to see if I have an interview?

How did you find the interview? I completed mine today, I think I messed it up! I’m usually good at interviews but I didn’t work well with the countdown timer and no personal interaction. I felt really prepared then my brain went to mush 😩

South East. You? Have you done it? I left mine until the last day and I wish I done it sooner as all the prep I done went out the window once it started filming 😩

Ive applied for West Midlands Birmingham Solihull and also the Mercia -Nuneaton as the only specific preference. Doing it tomorrow lunch time as I’m still not 100% 😬. Got last bits in the morning to go over going to record myself once then just go for it and hope for the best. I’m sure you’ve done well. You’ve got this far ☺️

I'm sure you did fine! Worse comes to worse, take the experience positively and apply for other positions. Keep at it and best of luck!

It was all behaviours really. Only one question I had was worded as ‘what would you do’ as opposed to something along the lines of ‘tell me about a time’ but it still seemed like a behaviour over a strength, 3 minutes to answer each one.

Sorry I can’t reply to messages just yet but yes I had those same questions as you and same one of my examples didn’t quite match so I had to tweak it a bit which made me panic but hopefully I’ve done okay 🤞🏽
