  • I saw that alright. It would be nice to know how many applied for Technical Agricultural Officer aswell.

    Yea they aren't really talking about us in the press atal 😯 The little man doesn't get as much attention 😂😂




  • That doesn't sound right. If you came 9th you should definitely get a job. They told me my position on the order of merit but didn't say if I would get a job or not. They said the department would contact me if they reached my number on the panel.

    Exactly the same thing they said to me but haven't heard anything yet...just shows how slow the whole thing moves. Wouldn't lik to be no120 id say the panel would have expired at that stage.

    Oh dear the numbers that applied for the Assistant Agricultural Inspector roles are pretty high for some of the positions including the one I applied for:eek:

    Goodness knows when they will start calling for interviews!

    I applied for the Chemist (Lab based) along with 57 others. I wonder how many they'll take on.

    Maybe we should start a separate thread for the Ag Assistant jobs? What do you think?

    Hopefully 40 more turn down the job :)

    When were they looking to start and was it in a factory?

    I rang them 2 weeks ago and they had still only placed 11 people. They told me to wait at least a month before I enquired again because they didn't expect much to happen any time soon :-(




  • Well all,I am placed no.6 on panel and still heard nothing on TAO job..who did ye contact for information?




  • I rang PAS. You should definitely ring to see what's going on.




  • I rang PAS. You should definitely ring to see what's going on.

    Yes il try that thanks..just thought once interviews were over that we were finished with PAS and it was over to the dept. It's all very easygoing..wonder will d job follow the same lines!!

    Well you were right because PAS initially gave me a name and a number to call in the dept. But they sent me back to PAS!




  • Another 9 people are going to get called this week. It's going by location so it will be the top people in their location not necessarily the top people in the whole panel. Probably why you didn't get a call before Opelmanta, there was nothing in your location at the time.




  • Yes that is exactly what the PAS said last week..do you have any idea of the locations they are hiring for?




  • No I wish I did. I'm not expecting a call anyway, I'm a bit far down.




  • Anybody call the PAS this week and get an update?

  • No update since.




  • I was hoping I'd know before Christmas...beginning to look like that won't happen now :-) I'm trying to visualise what Spring is going to be like when the cows start calving, kind of hard when you have no idea where you might be sent.




  • Well if no 6 on the panel that posted above hadnt been called when 11 people had they must be trying to place people inside 1 if their perferred locations if theyre not going up in order?
    Did anyone ask pas this?
