Interview Nerves

I put on a trouser suit and heels for my interview, as Ninja and my parents said this is a job interview so look the part - I hope it goes well

Never mind the PE kit, I'm gutted the OP hasn't told us how the interview went. If I didn't know better I'd suspect this thread was created by a sock-puppet.

Sock Puppet !! What a cheek :* ;) Sorry for the delay in saying how the interview went, I only just realized you were all still talking about it Doh :) Anyway, well the short and curley's of it was, I did a dummy run before to make sure i had the right place, I was told I was in the right place and I could park my car there. I got there early on interview day for the interview and was told I was in the wrong place! and no car parking, I went were they said to go put my car 'somewhere' to be told I was still not where I was suppose to be ( and its p...ing with rain) and I have put my car 'somewhere' (i'm a bit histerical at this point) but I did keep ringing to say I was lost and was on my way. Anyway, a little disheveled, I eventually found the car :( and eventually found where I was suppose to be (2hrs later!!! Ohhh that hurt) Im sure Slim and Ninja Stokes said be early!! I was thinking that at the time. Ok I'm there at the right destination, eventually! :( there were really good about it and said it was ok because I kept in touch, but who knows if that was really ok or not. The Interview was a bit weird, there was a lady and a head cook who at first I didnt take to but in the end was actually quite a funny bloke. I was not asked anything about my application, I was asked things like how many ships did the fleet have, how do I feel about living in a dorm of 6 people and For the life of me I couldn't think what HMS Reighly was when asked! I blame all the rain in my ears .... it's going well! ... I was asked what I would cook for a 3 course meal for friend, I put dauphinoise potatoes with shepherds pie! ... it's still going well..just not much.... but did change it to chicken in white wine sauce. Anyway interview over and I'm still alive, and it's stopped raining amazingly enough. So Ninja Stokes I'm not sure weather to say it went well or not I will leave that for you to conclude :) And I will find out at the end of the month when they send the letter out. xx

Thank you, in my heart of heart, I think I know that and extremely disappointed because of how important it is to me and why and how did it go so damn wrong, when it was so simple. Just not like me all :'(

Part 2, ... I have just phoned them, interviews finished yesterday and everyone is sent a letter, it was based on the department applied for depending on if you were told on the day or not, for a cook its letters sent out... I will stay positive and wait and see what happens xx :sad5: x

The full address was on the covering letter with post code which I used, that took me to (what I know now to be) the 'shortest' root, and that is through the dock. The rest was on a slip of paper attached to the travel claims form which did not register in my tiny brain :crybaby: ..... you are defiantly correct Sock Puppet. xx
