We've had quite a lot of feedback from users that have completed the online application process (both successful and unsuccessful applications). The comments and brief summary we publish here is based on that feedback. If you're going through the online recruitment process you might find it useful.
"I completed the online application process for Royal Mail casual staff, the first stage was very simple, general details, address etc. When this was completed I received an email and returned to the recruitment pages and this is where it got a little more interesting. There were two automated selection forms one based on data the second more of a personality profiler. The data test comprised a number of short exercises looking at comparisons of numerical and alphanumerical characters. You had to compare data and tick a radio box if you found the data identical or non-identical. It's not really hard except for the fact that the test is timed and in this sense it is a real challenge. There is a set of six demonstration questions to begin spend some time practising with these IT WILL HELP.
"The second test was more personality based, not much advice I can pass on, there was no time constraint so it I took my time. Statements that you had to agree or disagree strongly with. like 'do enjoy new challenges' 'do you like to work as part of a team'. Good luck and I hope this helps.
