hi Tania

just a stupid question i want to ask, what work the "fitter" do, who can apply for this position?

 

is it for those who work in assembly line production unit? or something else.

 

i now its a silly question, but would appreciate if you could help me answering it.

 

regards

SJS

 

I've also been wondering what a fitter does.

 

 

My husban is a Fitter and his duties ar to maintain machines, stripping them , fitting tools, fixing them when they brake down......... ansd yes it is line productin they make circlips.

Medicals

For those who are thinking of front loading medicals, please be aware that changes can happen at any time and you can find yourself at a bottom of a queue, your medicals could run out, I am not saying that this will happen but it has in the past, it is really something you need to think about and can you afford to re do them if something wrong.

Good luck

I heard on another forum that Reflex has a CO. Can anyone else confirm this?

 

I think someone was assuming that we should have a CO by now, but so far heard nothing. According to the PLE reply we got last week we'd been batched but not allocated a CO even though we applied 23rd Dec.

 

Not sure how long to wait before pushing the agent again.

I think it is difficult for anyone to give advice on this, as no one would like to feel responsible if anything went wrong :embarrassed: I think this is one of those things you have to decide for yourself and if you are happy to wait I think that is a good choice

I made the mistake of doing my medicals in Feb 2010 to speed things up only to find that I had waisted my money and was put at the bottom of the queue

What does a fitter do, we'll the main role of a fitter is to moan a lot at the muppet that broke wherever needs fixing. 2nd is to try and bodge up what broke and pray to a god of choice that it lasts till the next shift arrive. 3rd is to find an excuse not to do the job and pass it on to someone else, 4th have several extended tea brakes and if you don't already take up smokin for more brakes. 5th moan some more moaning in an important part of the job and must be mastered. 6th ensure you have a good excuse and back up plan for your action in 1 - 5. 7th if you've not fixed it it must be electrical pass it on to an electrician who are grand master's of the above.

I really only got to know what my husbands duties were when we were applying for a visa, all those other years I never really new :eek:

 

yes you are right!!!

it was a shocking revelation for me too, when i was applying that my wife does not know what i do....

before that she considered me as salesman standing at counter trying to sell to customers.

 

The best part is she is my wife since 2000 (more than 11 years)

Hmmm... I sent mine on Friday 14th, and just emailed them to say to ask if they received it... they said they haven't, which is strange as I sent it first class! I think I'm going to have to send again! MAybe you should email them to check they have yours too?

 

Hi,

 

We sent ours by special delivery so we know they have been delivered but as of yet no confirmation email. I suppose I should be patient but I am after all an Aries!

 

That would be such a pain to have to send again, getting your pic signed again and finding more proof of add etc
