Ogilvy UK Application Portal timelines?

I’ve been applying creative roles at Ogilvy on the portal. I applied for a senior writer and mid-weight creative role on the same day, and got rejected for one the next day and my status was “reviewed, not selected” but for the other it says “received submission”. I then realised it’s. the same status for some previous roles I’ve applied, as long ago as March. How long do they usually take to get back? Or should I just consider myself rejected?

Need advice on what to do when you have a new partner and feel like it’s already not working out? I feel like I have to micro manage them or be their manager in general to make sure they get what we need done. But that is not my job. We should both on top of our tasks individually. If I don’t say something to them it seems like things don’t get done. Which in the end can make me look bad. Also realizing we just don’t have the same taste in things which will effect our work. Idk am I being crazy?
