Recruiter got it wrong!

#1
No need for any replies, just want to wine......

Passed ADSC in Oct/Nov waited for my first choice and was not put before the board (never mind). Talk with recruiter about other options and Identify two that I would like to do. I make my interest perfectly clear ‘Sgt. I want to do....when is the start date for phase 1’ ‘March ‘Ok, sounds good gives me enough time to prepare and say the good byes’ ......later I confirm the date with him again and when he would like me in to do the oath and sign on the dotted line. The other day I get a call from him wanting to confirm my choice and availability.....I mean come on how difficult is it? :frustrated:

whine?

you mean you would rather he just assume you will turn up (when many do not).

it sounds to me that he was showing concern for you, and that you are "wining" (sic) without cause.

wind your neck in.

Calm down dear!

What if you had changed your mind? What if you had forgotten? (some do!)

Is it not better to check, check and check again than bu99er things up? Get used to it!

(Bed check, kit check, webbing check, weapon check.....)

I know it's best to check the details (I have seen some of the people that enter the ACIO) but my 'moaning' is more about the fact I was told I was 'loaded on' and just waiting for the pre-joining info rather than the fact that after our chat nothing appears to of been done....and before anyone comments I know there is more that just myself the recruiter is dealing with.

I cant see what your complaining about??

Sounds to me like your Recruiter was checking that you were still interested and hadnt changed your mind.

... however what? How can you justify complaining that your Recruiter was checking that things were set, you were happy with your choices/dates and you knew what was happening?

Things take time as we all know, if he was so concerned why didnt he ring his Recruiter and ask him what was going on?

He did. Read his original post.

Then he got a call asking him to confirm his job choices. Meaning that the office hasn't tried to progress him in the process, or somebody in the office has problems writing notes and/or reading notes.

I think this is all about timings. He wants to get into phase 1, has confirmed at least twice and very reasonably expects that now it should be a matter of taking the oath and signing on, then having his phase 1 date allocated.

None of that has happened as the office seems to be stuck in confirming his trade choice and availability for phase 1. Not sure if that delay affects phase 1 start dates but I imagine someone waiting for a date will be fustrated at the unnecessary delay.
