Unhappy

I sat my stage one at 9am on Monday the 1st October and still haven't heard back so i'm assuming its a fail but an email either way would helpful. Anyone else from my slot got results?

Highmore

You were at the stage 2 when there were issues with the DART test results? They have invited you to stage 3 without the need to sit the tests that would have been done in the afternoon? I was there that day too, still waiting to hear

@dmc02 Yes. We were sent home at lunch. I got two emails, one inviting me to stage 3, and another asking me to take a 40min Occupational Personality test online, a link for which would be emailed to me. Presumably the online test was the same as the afternoon one we missed. However, I haven't been sent a link to the online test, and have emailed HR about it.

Bit worried because the email regarding the online test said it needed to be taken before the application process could continue.

@highmore/dmc

highmore, congrats on making it through, how did you find it?
i've got mine on friday. i'm right in thinking SDM isn't used anymore, yeah?
what about collision avoidance? i don't think that appears but wouldn't mind confirmation. i guess DART covers that part.
good luck with your results dmc.
thanks.

highmore - the online personality test/questionnaire always comes between stage 2 and 3, it's not part of stage 2. If you managed to pass stage 2 without having to do half the tests, then good on you!

I just got through to stage 2 as well - absolutely buzzing! Thought those cubes were awful and didn't finish the last 8 so if you're in the same boat don't give up hope...!

Was there on the 4th, 3pm. Anyone in this group received news, good or otherwise ? Judging by POTR above, tomorrow is D-Day.

Nope, not yet. Although I doubt everyone from our group will get their answer by tomorrow.

NATS interview process

Sat stage 2 friday. Just had a phone call inviting me to stage 3 this friday.
Can anyone who has been through stage 3 offer me any help or advice?
Would Swanwick cater a visit on such short notice? And what is the best way to contact them, I cant find a phone number anywhere.
I have sone interview questions prepared but any extras would be a bonus.
Thanks alot!

I sat my stage 1 on on 03/10 at 1500 and have heard the good news that I passed and have been invited to stage 2. Very happy as I thought I was out.

Seems my hopes are dashed. I Also sat on the 3rd, I've not heard anything back but others from that date have. Oh well I will try again next year, really need to work on the cubes, I'm almost certain they let me down. Managed 36, but I struggle to see how I got 20 or so correct. Diagrams I did a lot better, got 40 I think, pretty confident on most of them.

I expect fail email in the next few days!

Congratulations to all who have passed I wish you the best of luck, and a long career with NATS!

I've been invited to take stage 3, but the dates are such short notice that I'm not hopeful of being able to visit a unit beforehand, although I visited Swanwick when I got to this stage a few years ago. Anyone think not having been to an ATC unit recently will significantly hamper me in the interview?

@hHighmore, I was at the same stage 2 as you, and haven't been sent the personality test yet either, have you heard back from them?
