Anyone else get
We hope this email finds you safe and well.
We appreciate that some time has passed since we contacted you to advise that your application for Trainee Driver had been received and following completion of the initial selection process we would be in contact in due course. Apologies if you have contacted us since asking for an update but not had a response, due to the volume of queries we receive we are unable to respond to each individual query and try to keep all candidates at this stage of the process updated at least every 8 weeks.
We are currently reviewing our vacancy requirements against the number of applications and at present we have progressed our highest scoring candidates from the online assessment onto the next stages, based on our Trainee Driver requirements for a 2021 start.
We believe that due to the high volume and high quality of applications we received we are currently unlikely to need to progress any additional candidates further through the selection process for a start in 2021. We have therefore been liaising frequently with our senior management team to advise on this and have been seeking clarity for some time on whether they wish us to retain your details on record for campaigns for a start in 2022 and beyond. However no decision has been currently made by the business, and some of these delays have inevitably been due to the national pandemic and the significant level of change that the railway sector is currently going through.
We appreciate this may be frustrating to hear but hope you understand that as soon as senior management have confirmed we will be in a position to update you individually with your application. Should your situation have changed in the meantime or you no longer wish to be considered for the position please advise us."
Yep. Doesn't make much sense. Think the whole things a bit of a mess if i'm honest. So getting to a Video Interview was based on the online assesment and not the applications? So depending on the wim of the senior management, we may have to apply again for a future recruitment drive in 2022, when they still haven't reviewed our current applications. Although this has been conducted during an unprecedented pandemic, it makes you think whether WMT are actually that professional.
