What you have mentioned are very narrow points of view that i wont waste my time defending. "What a DXO can do, his PES E clerk can do better." this shows your level of knowledge of DXOs jobs. That being said, i have NSFs who are of very high quality, but i dont believe they can just 'take over' officers like in your example.

all in all, unless you are a DXO yourself, you wont see the higher echelons of the organisation and understand the quality of our officers.
The supervisor I was working for was a DX10. I've met useless ones even up to DX12. For some reason, everyone thinks that their work is "high level" and others just won't understand. I admit, I've met really impressive ones. The most memorable officer I knew was a DX15. Again, I'm not saying that across the board, all DXOs are useless. But most are, especially in the HR and operations side, if you want me to be specific. I've not had the chance to work with many of those doing policy and planning and I know that no clerk can ever take over them. But those guys are only a minority of the entire DXO population.

well fair point regarding HR side. Ill agree even NSFs can take on HR roles in most places. however,i still disagree with your 'most' DXO are useless premise. Ops depends on the service level. if you are talking about army training like indent vehicle, book training area... any NSFs can do it. If talking about airforce ops, theres no way a NSF can do it on his own or 'take over'. well, we both have our own experiences.. perhaps yours is sadly negative.

Just curious, how do you know which dxo is which rank? Especially since they do not wear their ranks on themselves.

Not that I disagree or what, but some of the discussion on DXO is sort of "abuden!?" Do you guys really think any person with capability will join MINDEF as a HR or support department DXO? You will be lucky to even get even an average calibre to sign up for the job. Most are just there to go through motion rot till retirement in a 100% safe place like MINDEF. Everyone who go through NS or reservist knows that.

I realise rejection is quite swift so I can only hope and pray that we're under the KIV list so getting longer to get back to us. I took around 6 - 8 April but still waiting

I took the PT on the last week of March. At the 4 week mark, I called MINDEF HR to inquire about the status of my application. I was informed that my CV was being reviewed by the unit concerned. To date, I've still not received a reply from MINDEF.

I'm a mid-career applicant with more or less relevant job experience for a policy position.
