Interview waiting

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. Hi guys/girls

    My son has recently had his RT in March and passed, he's now waiting for an interview but as it been a while since he took his RT I was wondering how long the normal wait is?
    Thanks in advance

  2. If I remember right my sons was about 3 months after his tests, maybe get your son to call his Afco
  3. Thanks Lynds, I'll get him o ring them X

    Sounds odd.

    If he passed the test, he should now be interviewed inside a couple of weeks. The sequence changed a little while back, so he should not be waiting a month or more.

    Possibly he underscored for his chosen branch and was given the option of a re-take after 4 months or a list of alternative jobs for which he did score high enough.
  5. He passed his RT and received a letter stating this, but he has to wait, one of my friends sons had his interview same day, but this was for a different department of the navy.

    Seems very odd. Two weeks is the target time to interview regardless of RN branch.

    Is it Royal Navy or RFA that he is applying for? If it was RFA, he can call them on 02392 725243 - they usually conduct a sift after test. They tend to call forward applicants for interview as vacancies arise.
  7. Just a little update, he's got interview date 3rd October in Portsmouth. He applied for the RFA, they advised of the sifting process which they obviously have done. Thanks for the replies X

    I'll move the thread to the RFA subforum.
  9. Hi there Tinks200
    My son has an interview for RFA APPRENTICE ENGINEER this month
    Has your son had his interview now? Am I correct in reading it was Oct 3rd?
    Was he given indication of outcome and time frame?
    Thanks Tinks
    Another Proud Mum xx
  10. Hello another proud mum lol
    My son did indeed have his interview on the 3rd. He should find out within the next two weeks if he's got a place. If so his training should start in March 2017.
    Hope this helps

    Good luck to your son too x
  11. Hi Tinks200
    Thank you for your reply.
    Do you know how many were interviewed?
    Let's hope our boys have both got through xx
  12. I don't know how many were interviewed sorry. But my son said he was the only one there at the time. I hope they get in as well X
  13. Has anyone heard anything on the results of the recent interviews for RFA ENGINEER APPRENTICE to start in March 2017?
    Just anxious for my son -
  14. Has anyone heard anything yet? Thanks
  15. My son got in, 6th March start date X
  16. Hi Tinks ... how is your son getting on with his vaccinations? My son also starts on March 6th and we are concerned as his vaccinations aren't complete
    This is due to a delay getting appt with nurse and then the period required in between jabs.... also the security clearance ... has your lad's come back yet ? Worried .. thanks
  17. Hi hun, my sons not had his injections yet either got them next week, plus he's got sort out his TB one in Norwich, his security clearance hasn't been done yet as he forgot his sign in, so he's gotta sort that lol
  18. Thanks Tinks
    All a bit of a nightmare with the delay in trying to get appts at the surgery etc
    They can't do them all at once so it makes it even longer
    Have you had a reminder from RFA Admin
  19. Yea twice! He got one today about copy of birth cert, blood grp, injections and his death ear in benefit thing and something else, but he's sent nearly everything off. Yes it all take time
  20. Hey ho! This might sound like a daft question but how do I start a thread up as I have a couple of questions that I'd like to ask because when I click start a conversation it says tag recipients lol
