I've called multiple people and left multiple messages. Apparently the two head HR people are on leave at the moment. Making it very difficult to find anything out unfortunately.

I got in touch with someone, basically there is still a small number of people in the interview pool that haven't yet got an interview or been rejected, and they couldn't say what they have planned.

Has anyone still in the current 'interview pool' not heard anything?

Any estimate as to how many candidates have now been through the interview stage?

I believe there was ~180 candidates that passed PAT 1, 50 were interviewed before Christmas and ~130 told they are in the future interview pool. Since then, sounds like there has been an additional two rounds (please correct me if wrong) of interviews carried out? So, mustn't be too many still sitting in the interview pool?

I'm in the interview pool. I think there's only a few over 20 or 30 left in the pool isn't there? That's what I heard.

I'd say it's not looking great for us but if we were to hear would it possibly be after the 3rd squad has started?

Had to laugh on the weekend when i heard HR have stuffed up and someone who was meant to get a fail for interview actually got a job offer....

Wow. Genuinely jaw dropping. How does that happen!?

Went out early  this afternoon to those who have been successful at progressing to PAT2.

Do you know how many of the 50 that were interviewed were successful and invited to PAT 2?

Perhaps every one will get a score from interview and as more are interviewed they may leap over others already in the rank??

That would mean that they wouldn't make any employment offers before interviewing more people from the pool wouldn't it?

I have just assumed that at least 36 of those 50 are going to get jobs. I'm one of those in the interview pool so I've got my fingers crossed that we all get the call up to come in for an interview.

For those doing the interview, are all 50 people ranked from 1 - 50 no matter what? Even if some people interview awfully, will they still remain in the top 50 or will they get rejected?

And for those that have done the interview this week, how'd you go? Any indication of when your PAT 2 will be?

I see. Yea, very unfortunate to miss out when you're that close to the end.

It does sound like most people are passing. And as for the interview times, I'd like to think we'd find out by the end of this week, but I guess we'll just keep checking our emails very very regularly.

How did she almost fail?

Also how many people ran at the same time as you?

For those that have now done the beep test, how did everyone in your group go?

I had 2 groups of 5 people running, and of the 10 total, 1 person failed.

I have my test Tuesday afternoon and I've only heard of people doing the test on this day too.

Anyone hear anything today?


I haven't heard anything either.

How long did it take Pieces? I applied on Saturday and haven't received anything yet, starting to stress.

I applied on the Monday that it opened, heard back on the Friday, did my payment the following day and then got invited to do my test 4 days after that. So from time of application to assessment date is 15 days.

I don't think there's any reason to stress, they seem to be going through these quite quick, I'm sure you'll hear soon.

Got my payment acceptance email, test is next week.

I got my email asking for payment on Friday, and a friend of mine got his yesterday. He did the online application a day after I did, so it seems like they're going through them in order of who applied, could just be a coincidence though.

I don't suppose anyone knows when they intend to start the aptitude tests?

Quite different application setup from last time. This is my second time round and since you don't need a truck license anymore I'm curious as to how many applications they're actually going to get.

Other Government Agencies / SAPOL

Hey all,

I know that there are quite a few people in the MFS that used to work for SAPOL.

I was wandering if anyone had any thoughts that they'd care to share on that? Was it a good job? Did you enjoy it or not and would you recommend it?

I mean it couldn't have been too fabulous if you are now in the fireys, but please do share. :)

I'd like to get as much information as possible, so if anyone has anything to contribute, please do.

:( I'm out too.

Ah well first time, was a good experience, plus I am only 21 so I got many more years to try get in!

Might try SAPOL, or at the very least do some research into it and go for MFS next time they open applications.

Anyway, good luck to all those that have gotten an interview!

Anyone heard anything? Otherwise MFS are leaving it short notice if they want to start interviews on 16th March.

They had to test extras at a later date due to a HR stuff up so this may have delayed it
It's just interesting that it was two weeks ago they updated the dates which included the interview start date one week forward.

Maybe the guys that have interviews have been informed already :? :?

That is not what I want to hear. Surely someone on here would've heard something if that was the case.

Has any one found out about interviews yet ?

I believe some got unsuccessful emails today

I haven't gotten an email yet so I suppose no news is good news.

Has anyone received a successful email yet?

I've been having a read of the previous recruitment threads, very interesting to see how long people have to wait before hearing things! Was a good read though, answered a lot of questions that I had.

2-3 weeks isn't too bad.

How many people are going through to the interview stage roughly?

I was in the last group for my PAT 1 and of all 4 groups, 2 didn't show, 3 had incorrect paperwork and 1 failed the test. I genuinely would have thought that people would be more prepared.

My test is on Feb 2, has anyone done it before? Don't suppose anyone has any insight?

Also how many times have people applied?
