    At the electrician interview, they said they hope to make a decision before Christmas. If they haven't, they'll still contact us to let us know

    Also said they were taking 6 for electrician and had invited 30 for interview so there's a 20% chance

    Does anyone have any idea of likely pay scales as apprentices , and then as full time sparks?

    had my interview this week, went well.

    Anyone heard anything yet?


  • Registered Users Posts: 61 ✭✭brianp20


    I've heard nothing yet but I was told it should be this week. I'm not sure how true that is because at the interview I was told they might not contact us until after Christmas.

    Probably won't until after I'd say anyway was just wondering


  • Registered Users Posts: 74 ✭✭liv1892


    Still nothing! They're drawing it out a bit.


  • Registered Users Posts: 61 ✭✭brianp20


    It's pretty frustrating. Hopefully we'll get word by the end of the week.

    Out of interest, how do you think your interview went?

    I thought I did well to be honest but as time goes on I am doubting myself. I was wondering if we did get the job would we be subsidized for travel expenses and that if we had to go a long distance would you know? How do you think you did?

    I'm in the same boat. After the interview I was satisfied with it but now I'm wondering was I just happy because the interview was over! Doubt is creeping in and that's why the wait is so frustrating.

    I'm not sure about travel expenses, I haven't thought that far yet.

    Ya the wait is killing all hope really.

    It was just something that was said to me by a friend so I said I'd ask and see if anyone knew anything. Hopefully this doesn't drag on much longer.

    I know someone that might know about the expenses so I'll try and find out later and let you.

    Even if we get positive news from this interview there's still a second one to follow.

    I don't think there is because they cut it down so much from the aptitude tests to only 30 so they wouldn't have to do second interviews.

    I was told at the interview that it I was successful there would be a second interview. I remember my stomach sinking when they told me. Did they say different to you?
