    Not sure about Solihull exactly, but should be about the same.

    Had my top up interview and its pretty much as has already been described in this thread.

    I was there about 15 minutes just going through my original application form to make sure nothing has changed followed by a short chat with a lady there.

    She did confirm they aren't expecting and start dates until early next year and will most likely be at Castle Brom.

    Changed manual assesment
    Someone help !! 4month ago I did manual which including the brake pedals, magnets etc which I passed, but unfortunately I failed on my interview even though I was more than prepared for it. Now I've been told by few people that the manual has changed and is not same as before. Can someone give me step by step instructions on what's the manual like now or a brief atleast please?

    Hi bobby, i had the manual assessment on monday

    You basically fit a mechanical item on the bottom right (inside the car) .. its pretty simples

    you then have to finger tighten the 3 screws in the right order and then use the extended screwdriver thing (lol) and tighten them

    after that you move on to the red, blue and green magnets ...

    you put a cushion inside the car, sit on it and place the magnets in the correct order

    next stage is to fit another mechanical item to the front of the car, pretty easy.. just plug it in and finger tighten it

    thats all you do.. you have 8mins to do it

    What did you ring them about?

    Did they say how long it takes to get the results back from your manual test?


    thanks

    Thanks manny, that sounds similar to the one I did before, you start of by putting some big block in then using a safety block to hold it into place, then bring the pedal connect it and put screws in then cushion and clip in some wires then magnets and then ending with putting 3 wires into front of the car and screwing them in. Is that the whole process, sounds really similar, I've been hearing they have changed it all and made it harder 😂

    You don't really have to wait for them to get back to you, if you wait, god knows how long they will take. When I did my online I called them 1 day later and they told me I passed and I booked my self in for manual, then I called 1 day after manual and booked my self in for the interview which I failed and now I've done it again but some times when you call they just tell you we will call you in a few days to book you in for manual or interview.

    Sounds like the same test I did 2 years ago at castle brom test centre. Someone here said they had manual at a different location, I wonder wonder if the test has changed with the location?

    2 years ago manpower informed you by email the next day if you were unsuccsessful. If you didn't get the email- it meant you passed!

    Do you know anyone that works there? If they go to manpower office and recommend you, they can have you fast tracked through system.
    We were told to do this by our group leader if we knew anyone waiting.
