Test

I've recently finished and the test was unexpectingly harder than I thought, found spatial to be a difficulty, but I guess the rest I found to be manageable. Got butterflies in my stomach about it, wishing the best of luck to all current candidates.

To those (like me) who didn't hear back from Air Services: I sent an email asking for the reasons I was clearly unsuccessful since I met all requirements, and they replied saying they had a really large number of applications and might have another round of testing next month.

So theres still some hope I suppose!

All the best to those already going through.

Cheers

Online Ability Assessment

When can we expect to hear back regarding the results and did anyone get the OPQ straightaway?
Hey Jerriri, I completed my online ability assessment on the Sunday gone. I didn't find it any more difficult than I was expecting, but in saying that, I also too missed a couple in the arithmetics section as I hovered my mouse over the answer. A bit frustrating but I guess everyone has done the best they can. I didn't get the OPQ straightaway.

I've spoken to a friend of mine who said he has done this kind of testing heaps, in another field though. He said that tests are often impossible to be 'aced' and that I shouldn't get hung up on that.

Let me know how you go with your application, best of luck!

Anyone heard back after the most recent round of online testing ending the 17th June? Been sitting at online testing complete - under review for a bit now and haven't heard anything either way.

Just thought I'll share this but 2 people on Whirlpool received a phone call today inviting them to the assessment centre in 2 weeks time.

I saw those posts too. Hopefully we're lucky enough to receive that call in the next couple of days ourselves.

Same. What I recommend to anyone doing assessment days in the future is be earlier than early. I gave myself nearly an hour to make a 15 minute drive and I was nearly late due to an accident that had us sitting on the road not moving for ages. I thought I would be too early and ended up making it just in time.

Other than that, it was a lot of fun. Wishing everyone that attended the best of luck on getting an offer!
