Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Great interview with former Comissioner Bob Paulson. 👇 https://youtu.be/HmQjXj2pFdI Nice find. That was a great interview. Lots more detail into personal policing experiences and cases than I would have thought. The Hells Angels investigations, for example. Great to hear his own application experie...

Troop offers are also being sent out VIA email and not the usual phone call.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Thanks. I'm considering reapplying since my deferal is almost up at beginning of next year as well. Can anyone shed some light as to if they would make you redo all the steps if you're reinserted or can you skip them. I've had two deferrals. This is my third application. Every application starts fr...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hey everyone, just passed my RPB and got my package. I wanted to gather some information about previous employment. Over last couple of years I've had a business and I've also worked random jobs serving and tree-planting while in university that would fall into the 10 years. I also had a career and...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Hey guys, I was curious to know if medical clearances expire? I was recently e-mailed stating that my medical clearance was being started, even though 3 months ago I was e-mailed saying it was already granted. I have done the psych and medical check ups already. Regards, I asked recruiting about th...

Alright. I've made my mind. Wearing a nickel back shirt.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Email states a light weight shirt with short sleeves is the best. Polo shirt will suffice. You don't need to be dressed nicely for an interrogation. Dressed nicely is definitely a requirement here. Although, not formal. I'll share with you what my PEP examiner sent me. I'm paraphrasing, "Often appl...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Suit and tie is not my thing.. I spent most of my life wearing athletic wear or military uniforms. Now that I have been invited for Poly, a business casual attire is mandatory. I am feeling uncomfrotable already, knowing that I have to wear a tie. I know It's going to smother me !!! Can I just wear...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

If you've reflected on your responses and cannot identify an area that requires improvement, it may be the manner in which you delivered them. You know what to expect next time around, use that to your advantage. Did they actually tell you what parts you weren't successful on? My general understand...
