Been reading your posts and must say thanks for all the info, sorry to hear about your situation but glad it will all be sorted for you in a few weeks.
I've applied for Merseyside area and have received three emails now saying we're considering you for vacancies in your area but as yet can't book you into an assessment centre,we'll be back in touch in 2 weeks. Seems quite automated which leads to think no ones even watched my video interview yet!
Haven't noticed anyone else from my area talking about assessment centre on here so maybe they just haven't got to my area yet?
Also can anyone shed any light on potential earnings after the 12 months, can't seem to find any info about it or what hours youd be working. Just says between 7-9 mon-sun would it be a week of early starts followed by lates?

ALSO THE HOURS ARE 8.00 - 16.10 MONDAY TO FRIDAY,THEY PUT THOSE HOURS IN APPLICATION SO IF YOU ARE EVER ASKED TO WORK THEM YOU CANT SAY I DIDNT KNOW YOU WORKED THOSE HOURS.SOME EXCHANGES WORK 4 91/2 HOUR SHIFTS INSTEAD SO DASY OFF EACH WEEK BUT NO ONE WILL SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THAT UNTIL YOU GET TO YOUR LOCAL EXCHANGE.THERES ALSO NO OVERTIME WHILST TRAINING AND YOU GET PAID THE LAST WORKING DAY OF EACH MONTH.IF YOU START IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH LIKE I DID YOU WILL STILL BE PAID WHATEVER YOU DO THAT MONTH,THEY SORT OF PRE-PAY YOU BASED ON KNOWING YOU WILL DO ALL THOSE DAYS IN THAT MONTH AND I THINK IF YOU HAVE TIME OFF THEY WILL JUST TAKE IT OFF YOU IF ITS ALLREADY GONE TO WAGES.I BELIEVE WHEN TRAINED YOUR OVERTIME HAS A CUT OFF LIKE MOST PLACES

We hope you’re well!

We wanted to get in touch to let you know that we haven’t forgotten about you. We're still considering your application for vacancies in your area and we are in the process of selecting candidates for our assessment centres.

As previously advised we can’t invite all candidates to an assessment centre but we will inform you either way if you have been successful in making it to the next stage. If your situation has changed and you're no longer interested in an apprenticeship at BT, please let us know so we can update your details.

Thank you for being so patient as we go through this process. We’ll be back in touch in two weeks’ time but if you want to get in touch before then please email openreachrecruitment@bt.com

THATS THE EMAIL I KEEP GETTING

Yeah ive seen a few get that in the past no idea if anyone has ever progressed passed that i hope they do for your sake the very best of luck. It does seem to take some length of time for some. Probably about a year for me since I started the process and then all of a sudden everything changed and I start this coming monday.
