  • Hey guys its been a while since I've been on here, like I stated back in 2014 I failed my VBT, I reapplied because I really want this job. I am now 23 years old and wish to really pass this time. Its on the 23 and I wish I can get general advice about it. Should I just be nice, be myself. I am a female just to be informative. I have to retake my fitness test again on the 21st since its been over a year since I last took it. Anyways please please help me out!

    Also I have a retainer at the top of my mouth that I can not remove, should I have it removed for the VBT so my speech could be better or do y'all think it wouldn't be a deal breaker for the SI?? HELPPPPPP

      Not sure what you're asking. I just remember for my VBT, I just talked to the TV like I was a part of the example and used common sense. I thought the structured interview was a little tougher, had to think quick, and make sense at the same time.


      Good Luck

          Good luck if that was difficult for you to do after 10 seconds You better get stepping.

          I used https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-sZD0Avi8Qs just to see how the pace would be. I found the test to be rather easy, the hardest part for me was the boredom of staring at the wall for 5 minutes.

          You already know what to expect from doing it already, just be yourself.
          You are asking if you should be nice? Were you mean last time? If so, that was probably the wrong approach.
