  1. Hi Guys, ive got my interview at my local careers office tomorrow, hopefully im going to be joining the Royal engineers, Im pretty clued up about the training I will be doing and ive been reading up on a few trades as well so Im good to go (hopefully lol!) Could anyone give me a heads up as to what kind of questions I will be asked

    Ive got a suit tie and shirt and everytihng, looks the works :-D does anyone think this is abit too much to wear

    any feedback much appreciated!!

    Thanks Guys!!
  2. The RE are famous for their sense of humour so it would perhaps be more appropriate to amuse your recruiter by dressing up in leathers complete with droopy porn tash. To complete the ensemble also wear a peaked leather cap with chain.

    Merely explain that you are a member of a "Village People" Tribute band.

    Hey Presto.... off to 9 Para Sqn in no time!
  3. engineers. put your pants on your head. two pencils up your nose and answer wibble to all questions asked..
  4. Hi, I'll have my Interview soon hopefully too (next week if all goes to plan)

    I'm wearing a suit, tie and shirt too, as it shows your keen about the interview and it shows self respect and respect for the interviewer :)

    As for questions I've been told to read up about

    What my training will consist off, Why I want to join, what I've done in prep for the Army . From what I've heard its quite a smooth interview and it shoulnd't have any question that will throw you into a pickle :D

    Anyway Good Luck mate.
  5. good luck...
  6. Should I wear a suit to my look at life or is that too over the top?
  7. standards. you can never be wrong looking clean and smart.
  8. What mods have you made to it? :p

    As has been said before, you'll never go wrong by looking smart. I'd suggest wearing a suit if in doubt, unless you've been told to wear something else. Also, make sure that your hair is shortish, clean and brushed, your shoes show some polish and you've had a bath and a shave (if you need one) recently.
  9. Lol, someone has been reading my rather embarrasing and mongy previous posts :p

    Cut my hair earlier tonight, I'll have a shower in the morning and wear some jeans and a shirt.

    Thanks for the advice.
  10. The Force is strong with this one.

    Lederhosen are also an accepted garb, my young padawan.
  11. What you should do if you are going for the Engineers, is learn the song, We are, we are the Royal Engineers. It will impress them and u will be posted to a training reg sooner than anyhting!!! ill send you a copy if required!!! :D
