First post here guys so sorry if this has been covered over and over. My experience of recruitment has been absolutely shocking. I first went to a recruiting event in September '12 basically saying I didnt want to wait around, I wanted to get in as soon as. They said being a student wasn't an issue and they'd be in touch to have me down my local centre (a logistics regt) to start the process in a fortnight. I didn't hear back for a few weeks, called them up and kept getting told I'd get a call back which I never got, but eventually they did get in touch. Went over the basics, interview 1 etc and was told I'd do some pre-selection fitness tests and be on my way to selection. It took them 2 months to remember to arrange this despite my phone calls and frequent visits (they didn't turn up to the first arranged date). They then said I'd be doing a selection in feb, they didnt arrange and i couldnt get hold of them, they then said they'd booked in for March and again it didnt happen. I finally did it in April and passed. I then didnt hear off this centre again for ages, so went down to another one (Engineers) who were much more helpful but its taken 6 months for Lichfield to arrange my TST (wish I was joking) , and now I'm not sure I have the time to do my training around term, anyone else managed to do it in their second year? (Wanted to do it either in my doss year or all my free time with long term breaks which I now dont have for one or two reasons) So if anyones managed to complete training in their second year please let me know how to juggle it!
