Capybara tests - alternative to sleep

    I’ve been trying to find alternatives to using sleep for some time and it seems that every single suggested method to avoid using sleep never works and I’m at the end of my rope.

     it 'finds the correct product when searching by job type', js: true do
     fill_in('filterrific_for_work_type', with: 'Central')
     # once again, sleep feels like the only thing that works
     #sleep 1 # TODO: find a better way..
     expect(find('#work_queue_items_filter_reset')).to have_content('Reset All Filters')
     expect(page).to have_link('IP Central Report',
     href: work_queue_item_path(@release.id))
    Code (markup):

    I also have this wait for ajax helper:

    module CapybaraHelpers
     def wait_for_ajax
     Timeout.timeout(Capybara.default_max_wait_time) do
     loop until finished_all_ajax_requests?
     def finished_all_ajax_requests?
    Code (markup):

    And in spec_helper.rb:

    RSpec.configure do |config|
    config.include CapybaraHelpers, type: :feature
    Code (markup):

    This test breaks unless I add the sleep 1. and I’ve tried so many iterations using things like ‘within’ ‘find’, ‘have_content’ ect. This is really driving me crazy.
