I asked this question in another thread and got an answer, but I would like a wide range of answers to get an idea of what I'm looking at. After getting the ok from my college to join the TA, I'm wondering from the moment i go the recruitment office/TA Centre of choice and sign up. How long before the pay roll enters my bank? The reason I ask is because I am currently in employment elsewhere and I would not have time for my job and the TA so I would have to pack the job in. On the other hand I do need the money from that job for my daily expenses, so I need an idea of how long it takes the pay to roll in from the moment I start to sort my priorities out. Cheers in advance.
