    Spoke to Michele this morning. Apparrently there were over 1000 applicants, so well done those that stood out.

    I was told that I needed a bit more F&B experience, I've only been in my waitressing job 2 months. But I'm definately not a lost cause and should apply again as close to August 1st as possible. My dream isn't over.

    Do you think that Michele will reply to our emails after all the phone interviews take place maybe?

    I sent my "why oh why didnt I get in" email like 5 minutes after I had received my rejection email and havent heard anything back. :-[

    Congratulations to everyone who has got to the phone interview stage!!! WHOOP WHOOP!

    Yeah I'd imagaine they're pretty busy. There may be people who get offered the phone interview who have changed their minds so that might open up a few more spaces.

    We'll see :)

    Hey, i'd just like to offer a bit of advice to all you guys.
    I got waitlisted in November after my f2f interview, i was totally devastated and the best thing i could have done and that i would advise you to do is to try and forget about it for now. I did that, and a few weeks later Michele called me to offer me a place on the CRP. ;D
    Basically just don't worry, get on with things for now, and apply again in August, and trust me, they will remember you, they will know if you've applied before.
    Also i've heard from a fairly reliable source that Yummy people do occasionally look at this forum so just be careful :eek:

    Kirstie xx
    p.s. Vicki im soooooo pleased for you, and everyone else that got thru! ;D

    I reckon there's about 50-80 places available so i would have thought they'd offer f2f to a 100-140 people. So going on that assumption i imagine 300 got phone interviews. its also a number that could easily be reached over two weeks of 10 minutes interviews by two people.

    Oh no Jasper! Have lots of hot drinks and orange juice and stuff today and hopefully your voice will be alright tomorrow.

    Good luck :) xxx
  18. Ive just had my 3rd tea with a chunk of lemon, and my voice feels fine so im gonna drink as much as that as possible lol.

    I feel totally calm about the whole thing, im like bring it on!!!!
  19. i think i feel calm cos im getting high from the constant tea supply, dodgy leaves!!!!! LOL!!!

    And guys thanks for the get well messages!
  20. Oh and i think they are phone interviewing just under 250 people, as if u calculate it, they can only interview around 20 people a day on 15 min interviews. so it adds to just under 250.

    So yea, kick ass mofo's
