Mine was HR only, when my line manager asked could they complete it as there’s a lot of character type questions within the form they were explicitly told no. Generic HR one only.

So do you think at this stage if you haven't heard back you've failed????

Based on roughly 4/5 interviews a day, that's about 132/165 candidates interviewed, about 33%/45% pass rate....

It's all guess work, a lot didn't get through the online tests apparantly.

I wonder how much the references play a part.

We've yet to have anyone come forward and say they have received an unsuccessful response at any stage... unless I mistaken. I presume wapol will notify us if unsuccessful.

I'll put my hands up and I don't think my interview went well. I don't think a generic HR reference is great or will help me.

I never failed an interview until I joined the police, there just not straight forward questions in my mind. I'm a do'er rather than a talker.

Hey all, I've been following the thread of 'Dread' but found it insightful so far... I completed my interview and am waiting for a result.

Like many others my references were forwarded to HR and I contacted WAPOL who confirmed they received my reference which is a single generic HR one. WAPOL responded with ' That being said, a number of forces around the country appear to be doing the same, so you’re in the same position as a lot of applicants.'

hope to hear something positive as we've been looking to get to Aus for 5 years!
