Wow, I didn't expect a reply since my original post was made 15 months ago. lol
Well, after completing the work assessment day Nov 2012, I was given a conditional offer pending the approval of the medical report. They actually printed this letter out and signed it on the day.
But after that day, I heard nothing from them for a couple of months so I chased it up and they Blue Arrow said they were still waiting for Toyota to give them feedback as to when they were actually going to take people on.
Well I didn't wait for them so thought nothing more of it as I already chased them up twice. I assumed either they didn't want me or they were just stringing people along by giving them excuses that they didn't know what was happening. They do hold our information on their databases until their next recruitment drive.
After about 1 year, I received a letter from Blue Arrow asking me to complete a new medical questionnaire if I was still interested in working there (but doesn't mean I actually have a job with them). I lost all interest in them after not hearing from them for ages so didn't bother completing the questionnaire as I was already working for someone else at the time.
I know Toyota work on a JIT system and of course apply this to the recruitment process too, but it was annoying not knowing what was happening and having myself to actually chase them up more than once. I would have preferred them to say they were taking on people back then and it would mean other applicants won't waste time with applying.
People who are still waiting around for Toyota to give them a call shouldn't hold their breath. I would definitely look for other jobs coz their recruitment process it so slow.
