Hi will they call or email if you're selected for interview?

I've read through the thread and so far there wasn't much info on working locations. Would we be able to find out where we will be posted to based on the position(s) we applied for? Understand that there's no info on the DXO website (probably due to security reasons), but can we email the HR personnel to ask even before applying for the job?

DXOs typically work at civilian dominated camps like Depot Road Camp (a.k.a CMPB at DTTB) or MINDEF HQ (Gombak/Bukit Panjang Camp).

Thanks, what are the typical positions for either location? Heard that HR would be posted to CMPB, what about Finance, IT, Comms, etc?

I did the psychometric test last week and noticed that in the attendance list where you're required to sign before you enter the room, the last column shows a position that you've applied for. Mine was my 2nd choice out of the 3 - do I assume that I'll be assessed for that position?

For IT, most of them are stationed at Gombak, especially those pertaining to forensics. As far as I know, there are Finance positions within CMPB and Gombak, so this really depends on the unit/department you are posted to. Comms positions are at CMPB. Research/Organisational Psychologists are at CMPB, whereas Clinical Psychologist would be at the respective units they are deployed to.

Yeah, you are getting assessed for your second choice. But the PT is valid for some time, 1 year or so, I think. So they would still keep your test scores and consider you for your other choices if you do not get shortlisted for your current one.

Hmm ok thx.. if I put down a position as a 2nd choice, does it affect my chances against those who put it as 1st?
