The wait is always the worst part. Nothing is sure until the mail arrives, not reliable times from secret sources, not calculations based on previous threads, not even info from HR personnel. Everything is up in the air, sure bets become gambles wink too sure become long odds. Mails are refreshed a 100 times per hour and some log on with other computers to make sure village people haven't come in by night bus, others follow Nairaland thread like it was Jesus and they the 12 disciples. Data finishing at this point will initiate panic on a level that only coke fiends can relate with.
To be fair, there's very little that can be done about this feeling, anticipation is such a powerful emotion, looking forward to something makes you create fantasies of your reaction when you finally get what you want that sometimes when you finally get it, you had already plateaued at anticipation and the real thing doesn't compare.

What does all this have to do with TS dates, I have no clue, you see I was bored and I put down my thoughts. Because at the end of the day if I crace, they will replace me with a snap.

Good morning guys... I just called HR... He said he would have sent the mail yesterday but several people called and complained that 17th was too close... He said training school will now be 24th to allow people prepare and it is residential... He said he will send the mail either Friday or Monday

If this is really true that people called and where complaining about 17th being close. How is it close after a long wait from january(CBT) to the 6th month. I just want to believe the complaints ain't true because I believe that if one is not ready he/she should willingly join a later batch. My thoughts though

Don't be self-centered here, you know some people has to tender resignation letters to their various organizations and also people coming from far places such as Sokoto and Kano needs adequate preparation.

If this is true, they should please send the success mails on time so that people will be sure that they have been selected for ample time for those who want to resign in their work places to. Success mail and Resumption should be at least around 10- 15 days to be fair to all.

My thoughts though

He/she isn't been self centered, its the people that called to ask for an extension that are self centered here. While I agree that some people need to resign from their jobs, what about the others who don't have any jobs and have been waiting around for the TS mail so they can finally do something meaningful professionally? If you know you're not ready for the TS, no problem; but instead of asking for an extension, ask to be added to the next batch of TS. In that way you'll have enough time to resign and prepare adequately for the TS, while the ones who are ready can join the first batch. Its a win-win situation for everyone. The funny thing is that even with the new unofficial date (24th), some people still won't be ready, so imagine if they call again and ask for another extension to July probably. What happens then? HR will just keep shifting the date until EVERYBODY is ready. It doesn't make any sense.

I totally agree with you. Some folks still won't be ready even if they're given a year extension. This process has been on for long, no need to drag it any further.

I don't know the pay but there's accommodation for trainees (don't know if it's for all or those outside Lagos)
After three months we'll be posted to continue our training on the job

Maybe no-one knows the exact amount that's paid both during the TS and after the TS. You can also go through previous threads (2016) to read up any additional information you need. And yes there's accommodation; some people asked during documentation and it was confirmed. Read the previous pages and you'll see it. And from what I've read from previous threads, after TS you get a 2 weeks holiday and after that you pick up your offer/posting letter. Just read through past threads (2016 thread in particular).

Its 70k without Accomodation. With accomodation will then be 56k. You are spot on.

With the above conversation... we can actually have our opinion but the truth is that I think we should just applaud FBN for been considerate.

Morever, some seems to be very excited to start already... It is just a week.. not a month extension. That is why we are a team. The best FBN could do for all those given complaint was just 1week extension, and that is simple enough. That one week can actually save someone a lifetime problem.


If you are 'ready already' be 'well ready' again. Preparation is never too much for any important occasion/event.

Keep calm... just be ready!

Does that mean accomodation isn't compulsory? Because for that extra 14k most people may prefer to stay outside.

Re: First Bank 2019 Graduate Trainee Assessment Centre Invite by Qualcoms(m): 11:48am On Jun 13
FBN renovated First Academy Accommodation because of us... to give you comfort and convenient. 'Most people' won't prefer to stay outside. Accommodation is expensive in Lagos coupled with high T-Fare.

I want to believe the accommodation is for everyone if only the candidates in the batch exceed the capacity of the hostel... then u may be thinking of staying outside.

All these speculations will end when u see the TS mail tomorrow/Monday
