It's been three weeks since my first interview.. Have yet to receive a call from HR or a rejection email. Trying to be positive that no news = still got chance since the last time they took only 1 week to send me a rejection email.

Has anyone gone for an interview the same time as I did but have gotten updates?

keep your chin up. best way to occupy yourself now is to aggressively apply everywhere else. if the good news come, it comes. if not at least u still have chances elsewhere.

the worst thing u can do right now is stay stagnant and mope around waiting for the call.

Cool DXO Ranking / Interview

Hi Guys,

I just went for my first interview yesterday. They seem extremely positive throughout the interview. Was interviewed by a HR DXO, Unit DXO and a Maj. Although the feedback I got from them was very forthcoming and good I'm still wondering how long I should wait before applying for other positions to keep my options open.

Just wondering on how long they actually take to get back to you regarding a unit preview. I was not told to go down for a Psychometric test or anything like that.

They did not mention about the paygrade as well, and didn't want to release much info on it.

Position Applied : Dispenser
Rank : DX5 - $XXXX ??

Anyone can enlighten me on what does a DX5 Rank mean ? Or what does it translate to in military rank ? CPL ? or something ?

Hi. for reference and from what i know. DX6 is around staff/master sgt level. DX7 is warrant officer level. DX5 is probably 2nd SGT 1st SGT level. Pay wise probably less than 2k or close to 2k.

Any positions below DX8/9 probably dont require psychometric tests. you can always continue to apply for other positions. no need wait for news.

I do hope that my stint in the public sector will assist in my application...some experience should be useful, no, especially SAP? Working as accounts exec at iDA now. heehee
