Good luck !!

I timed out of the YWG IFR candidate pool twice now. Stayed in the candidate pool for 18 months after passing the in-person interview.

I am in the process of trying for a 3rd and final time.

Yup,

1st time took 1 year to get to the in person interview from initial application. passed the interview. stayed in the pool for 18 months, got dropped and had to restart.

2nd time passed the in-person interview withing 6 months of re-application. Again waited 18 months only to get timed out again after 18 months.

Are you currently waiting for an interview or waiting in the pool again? That's a long arduous period of time to be waiting! I'm only at about the 1 year since initial application and the waiting is killing me.

Any feedback on your 2nd interview, How long it was? Was it similar to the 1st interview? Did you find it easier or harder than the 1st?

It was probably 45 minutes all together. 3 person panel interview. Lots of behavioral questions same as the first although they had more follow up questions. I would say it felt harder than the first.
