So I had a phonecall today from somebody in my local AFCO that I'd not spoken to before. "Hello, is that worm? I'm just calling to confirm you can come in on the 8th to swear your oath of alleigance." "Oh", says I, having not been contacted by my recruiters since passing ADSC back in October. I had popped in to the AFCO after selection, and was told that "the girls in allocations" would sort me out the next couple of working days, and I would be phoned and told what was going on as joining instructions wouldn't be sent until 4 to 6 weeks before my intake. Two weeks later, having heard nothing, I decide to give them a call. After a lot of chasing around for people trying to find somebody who knew what was going on, I was told that my intake would be 12th jan 09 but they weren't sure whether it would be Pirbright or Bassingbourne with the REME being moved around. Not a big deal, as it doesn't matter to me where I'll be really, it's just nice to know (and it's now been confirmed as Bassingbourne). So then I get this phonecall today about my oath. Conveniantly enough, I can make it, but why has nobody contacted me already about it? Are all recruiting offices this (seemingly) useless and unorganized?
