Three weeks ago I attended an Apprenticeship interview in Retail. I got through the interview very well and got responses such as "that was spot on" and the interviwers seemed very happy, nodded their heads always. I then went on to do the assesment and didnt do that well but was told the interview was the main part. I got told I will recieve a reply within 2-3 weeks so I kept following up I even saw one of the lady's and asked if I got the Apprenticeship and the lady said she cannot tell me any thing as this is unprofessional however what she said was that I was one of the better candidates and she also told me she knows who got accepted and told me to wait. I then followed up once again via email as this is approaching the third week on friday and I got a response from the HR team saying "You will receive a letter in the post in the next few days, if you have not received anything by monday please contact us".
I just want to ask if you think this is a good thing or not?
