I applied for 1 job back in March (whilst I still had a job), but since being made redundant have not looked for anything else, as I fancied a few weeks/months to enjoy myself, travel a little and do some work on my car.
I passed the first 2 stages (phone interview and online logic/maths test) back in April, but didn't think it was going anywhere.
Two weeks ago I was invited up to their head office for a 'selection day'. That was yesterday. Quite stressful, but thought it went ok. Left their at 4:30pm. Got home and was about to make dinner, and phone rings at about 5:45pm. They wanted to call and offer me a job. They were so impressed, they didn't want to leave it, they wanted me to know how well I had done straightaway.
Woo Hoo!!!! Sorry for random outburst of emotion but I'm really excited. The selection day was brilliant and the whole company really impressed me and the mindset of the current employees was really good too.
