Organised interviews and emailed all the candidates on Monday, bearing in mind they have already been online to book their interview slots themselves, and half of the field have now withdrawn. Stuck between interviewing three candidates and trying to rearrange timings so they all flow or going back out to advert given the changes in some peoples circumstances since lockdown has been eased. Feels like this vacancy is jinxed.
Try being turned down after interview (NHS job) for loosing out on points. Points? For what? Then three weeks later seeing same job advertised again. (I've re-applied).

If you've had an interview and they're re-advertising the vacancy, why would you waste your own and everyone's time by applying again? 🤷‍♂️

Been paying to park my car all week to find out now that the Council are not charging for car parking until 15th June. No signs in the car park, nothing on their website and only found out when I applied to but a new monthly pass.

NHS interviews are generally done on a scoring system because as a public body it helps to scrutinise the interview process to ensure fairness. Ask for detailed feedback from the notes they made. There will be a minimum score to get the job - you don’t just hire the highest scoring person if they didn’t reach the required standard.

As for reapplying, it’s weird that they didn’t include a clause saying that previous applicants will not be considered but if your application is recognised by those shortlisting I’d be surprised if you get an interview.

After a quick look at Facebook this morning, much the same as yesterday... white people who live comfortable lives telling anyone who will listen that there is no racism in our culture.

Maybe he did it under a false name and he'll do the interview wearing a fake moustache.

Got a parcel coming via UPS today..
Just had an email asking g me if I want to sign for the parcel now....sign in, set up account, sign for parcel now....
Er......no thanks
I'll wait for the parcel to arrive before signing anything.
Why would I sign before I've got it- gives the driver the opportunity to not deliver it.....not saying he wouldn't.
Is this normal with UPS?
Haven't had a delivery from them in some time.....

Do people even dislike other people because of the colour of their skin anymore? I’d say Britain is very inclusive now, and I grew up in an old BNP and NF stronghold. It’s not what it was 20 years ago where I’d walk in a pub and whitelaw we’re playing and golliwogs hanging from the ceiling.
I just don’t see or hear racism anymore apart from what negativity the media spouts out.
As Morgan Freeman said racism exists because you keep talking about it.

You will not be signing for it anyway at the moment. They will either sign for you or take a picture of you with the parcel. If you are not in they will either take it away or leave it somewhere and take a picture, to show it has been delivered. We get deliveries in from all of the carriers and I have not signed for anything for over 2 months now.

It is not normal as such, it is the new normal that is happening until the old normal returns o_O
