Are Morrisons not giving feedback to unsuccessful applicants?

I ask this because I have rang their Recruitment Manager at Ellesmere Port a few times now, and have been promised feedback. I first rang him last Friday, and was told he would ring me with feedback, if not on the same day then on the Monday. I rang again yesterday saying that I still hadn't heard from him, and was assured he would get back to me.

We are now in Wednesday, and I am just wondering if I am wasting my time even bothering any more.

Anybody else having trouble getting feedback?

I Have applied for loads of jobs attended many a interveiw. With promise of getting feedback. but it rare that they get back to you.Worse thing is when your ask to email a company with a copy of your cv and a covering letter and then you hear nothing from them.

One of the problems is that Job Centres are making their 'clients' apply for jobs that they're not qualified to do. Employers are being inundated with applications. My daughter phoned one firm for an application form and was told they weren't accepting any more applications as they'd received over 300 in the first three days! I later found out from a contact that only about twenty of those were considered capable of doing the job and worth interviewing.

As regards the other agencies you mentioned - well, I don't really want to go on to much about them, as I have had a few bad experiences (esp with one particular one that messed me around really badly) with them which I don't care to repeat. Suffice to say that I AM taking ALL the other advice people have given me on this forum, and so certainly do not want to convey the impression that I am just inactively moaning!

I will not go on too much about my unemployment problem anyway, as I think I have said enough.



thought it was too good to be true

Morrison's have not yet told all the applicants whether or not they are successful, I think that it probably their priority before giving feedback. And if you had read my recent post, when I called them, they are struggling with delays due to staff leave at this time of year. I am sure they will give feedback if you write to them, once they have completed the recruitment process, not while they are in the middle of it.

Pleased to say that they finally rang me today with the feedback. I was told that my scores were okay, but it was just that due to the sheer volume of applicants, others scored more than I did.

Never mind. At least I now know the situation and that it was certainly no reflection on me that I was not offered a job.

I'm glad they got back to you.
Hopefully you'll feel a bit more positive now you know
The reason.

Good luck in your search.

Thanks, I always like to know exactly why an employer has turned me down. It does provide some comfort to know that it was simply down to the large volume of applications rather than any personal shortcoming on my part.

Simply down to the number of applicants scoring higher than you, you mean!

Hi Sallybear

Just to let you know that I have been in touch with The Business Connection by phone today. Spoke to Pam Wilcox and she invited me to submit my CV, which I have now done. Fingers crossed that they will be able to help.
