In case anyone was wondering, I passed my promotional exam! (woooo hoooo!) Very pleased with myself, all those hours of studying paid off and I officially "know my stuff".
Now I just have to wait to be scheduled for an interview sometime in October, along with all the other successful candidates (curse them) as we battle it out in a BEI type interview for the two available supervisor positions. We had originally been told that once the positions had been filled, that management would keep a list of other "qualified/successful candidates" to automatically fill future anticipated vacancies coming up over the next 18 months (of which there will be another 3 or more positions due to retirement etc.). However, management in their infinite wisdom (tongue in cheek), have decided that they will re-run the WHOLE FREAKING PROCESS again in the new year - to create a promotional "standby list".
OK...where's the logic there?
Will let ya know when I have my interview date.
