Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Royal Air Force (Cranwell, England, England) in Oct 2020

Interview

Applied two years ago! Process is ridiculously long. That said, I passed EVERY hurdle without issues until I attended the OASC. To my knowledge I passed the planning exercise, group activities and group discussions but was interviewed at the last stage by a shockingly overweight officer who had no interest in myself or much of her own job. I mention weight only because fitness is part of their ethos and a fitness test much be conducted during the application. However, why should applicants be made to undertake a fitness test when I'm interviewed and lectured by someone extremely overweight!? My candidate support manager was switched a good 4 times and I never had an issue with them all except 1 as this individual was very rude and again had no interest in recruitment. He refused to give out information and answer questions regarding the RAF as he stated "you are encouraged to research yourself instead of asking minor questions". I assured him that I took every effort to research answers myself but the Internet only confused me more. After all this I reviewed a rather sharp letter stating I was not recommended and when I asked what more can I do, I was simply informed that I must wait 12 months before reapplying and must go through the ENTIRE process again!

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 12+ months. I interviewed at Royal Air Force (Sleaford, England, England) in Sep 2019

Interview

God help the United Kingdom should we ever have to fight a war. Remained in the application process for nearly 2 years, still awaiting a result (15/04/2021). Gross incompetence blamed on COVID. Applied in June 2019. First 8 months where reasonable in terms of progress with x2 interviews, a medical and fitness assessment completed by Feb 2020. The next step was a OASC selection day at RAF Cranwell. Orginally booked for April, moved back to August due to lockdowns. Understandable. I successfully completed the OASC in August, however I did not find out this result until January. An unacceptable and unprofessional 5 month wait for a simple pass/fail which others on the assessment received within less than 7 days. Due to this substantial delay, my medical and fitness assessments had expired, therefore had to be reassessed locally and on the phone. After a drawn out medical assessment I am still awaiting a result 4 weeks later, as well as confirmation around reassessment fitness requirements, despite having a pre training visit and training booked. Grossly inefficient system which needs to thoroughly review and modernise. Applied into an engineering role (something which is regularly advertised due to shortages) and was told this would take approx 6 months. If this where true I would have started training pre COVID. Advice to others. Apply preemptively or expect a long delay. Advice to Glassdoor. Why is the timescale limited to 12 months?
