    I went in on May 10th & resat my online assesment, the guy said I will recieve a phone call in the next 7 days. I rang manpower on Thursday & the gave me the number for the halewood office. I rang them & the lady I spoke to said that it is taking longer that they expected to process the applications & asked me to be patient & I will get a call or email in the next couple of weeks

    Give them & call Monday & see do they tell you the same & let me know

    Unfortunately on this occasion we are unable to progress your application further."

    I was devastated as i was convinced I'd done ok. I was so angry and wanted answers, after numerous ignored emails I phoned Manpower at Halewood. The lady I spoke to told me I had applied twice and to ignore that email and that I would hear something in the next couple of weeks, but I know i only applied once so dont know whats going on. I wont hold my breath anyway because its been over two weeks now since my re-test..Good look to every one.

    this is getting beyond a joke now. i think its totally unfair that people are even having to resit the online test.
    it was the end of march when my boyfriend disd the online assesment. had to wait 2 weeks for the manual assesment then 35 days after that for the interview then heard back that he passed the interview 2 days later then resat on 11th may and now current still waiting. if he doesnt get the job after all this then i think its a joke.
    anyone rang from before the resits on the 11th and know whats happening.
    this is a bit far fetched for an operative job.

    I'll update this after I've called them tomorrow, I wouldn't mind if they said everyone will know either way by 1st June, but their so sketchy and nobody seems to know EXACTLY what's going on.

    Ah well fingers crossed for everyone (myself included!)

    A large number amount of recruits were started off on May 14th. Living local I know many people who applied.
    I was told the reason the online test had to be re sat was due to the fact Manpower had found out someone had been charging 10 to fraudulently undertake the online test on behalf of applicants in order to obtain a high score.

    I called Halewood this morning and was told it could take up until the 1st June due to the resits. How is this complicated? You pass all of the assessments, resit and pass the on-line assessment and if you get X% then you get a job.

    I thought this was part EU funded so I can't see them taking the majority of people from reffered parties. Also with all the new employment laws how can this be allowed?

    Sorry jon2012 I call in to questions your 'mates' off the record chat with someone who was on the phone, why would they risk their own postion with a comment like that? Stop stirring things mate!

    Yeah I heard that someone had gone around doing tests for people as well, jon2012 has edited his response, he actually said that a manpower employee told a friend of his that all the vacancies have been filled by people whom had been referred by present employees of JLR.

    I'm applying for the Solihull plant. I passed all stages, had the interview, had an email confirming I had passed the interview etc. The 28 days mark was Thursday 17th May. Anyone had to wait longer?

    To correct my previous edited post. Not all vacancies were apparently filled by referred applicants but have heard time and time again in the last couple of weeks from current employees that it helped.
    Shouldn't have happened but no way of proving or doing anything about it unfortunately.
    I am in the same boat as many and was unsuccessful.
    Sorry for any misunderstanding.

    I doubt most places were filled by people who were referred. As I recently started without a referral, and talking to people who have started most of them have started without a referral. Possibly if you knew someone who works there it may help, but I would say 75% of the intake each week is from people doing the application without a referral.
  • stefdev
    does anyone know hoe many spaces are left. and when the last intake is

    I had my online resit on the 11th May and found out yesterday I got the job. I wasnt a referral either so they are still taking people on just a backlog to sort out, good luck everyone.
