  • Hey all, been following. I too am band 1, sent my resume. I went through the process at City and got held up on backgrounds to the point where I was informed my application expired. Thank you all for posting your experiences here. I will do the same, of course no interview questions.

            Nope but I imagine it’s pretty quick, 6 weeks tops. I have a pretty clean record, currently work as a FF.
