Hi Sue and everyone,

I had the Skype interview and answered 101 questions last night:ohmy:, spoke to the recruitment officer and she was actually very polite and friendly I thought.
On the whole it felt very positive and I'm extremely keen to join Westcan anyway because the work they do is much more specialised and interesting.

I asked her the question 'How do you feel I've done?' She was very happy with everything she saw with my documents and my information from the questions but ultimatly it's the Terminal Manager's decision.

So have been told to wait 1-2 weeks for their decision, basically :fingerscrossed: and every else.....................Pray, pray and pray to God I am successful for my family's sake.................:)
