AIB cancelations - How long do they expect people to wait?

Discussion in 'Royal Naval Reserve (RNR)' started by u8dmtm, Jun 1, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Having begun the process of re-joining the RNR at the back-end of 2006 I got an AIB date for DE Entry in July 2007.

    However, I received a letter today telling me that it has been postponed until October 2007.

    Now call me impatient if you want but surely making recruits wait for a whole year is not helping recruitment.

    I applied for Rating entry and was persuaded to change to DE, if I had known it would take this long to sort out I would not have done so.

    A local TA Squadron recon they can turn around applications much faster than this, so is this delay acceptable (and therefore I am being unreasonable), down to poor organisation somewhere (not the RNR Unit), just bad luck, or something else ?
  2. I sympathise, but this kind of delay is not unheard of. I've also heard of people having to wait 6 months+ even to join as a rating.
