Good luck! Be prepared for it to MAYBE take a bit longer than two weeks to hear anything back (don't panic, no news is good news, etc). Good luck in the pursuit!

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

am I just a stupid person if i fail wonderlic? Does that mean I suck for law enforcement jobs? There can be a lot of factors for failing wonderlic. Time management is probably your problem... Spending too much time per question. Google sample wonderlic tests and practice. They won't be exactly the ...

Goodmorning all, hope everyone is enjoying the weekend thus far. I am in competition #98469, and am wondering if anyone has ANY advice for the "Wonderlic" (cognitive) written test??

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

I've been hearing conflicting reports about what sort of hours may be available. Yes, I am aware and do understand I am guaranteed nothing and some weeks may be better than others. I am in KW region and put Maplehurst as my first choice, but really I could be assigned Stratford, Vanier, Hamilton, Br...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

Well honestly, I'm 32...have 10+ years of experience in my field of study (marketing) and make less than that. So this would be a huge improvement to my situation. I know there are risks without guaranteed hours, but hubby has great benefits and we could make ends meet on slow weeks. I don't have k...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

The state of corrections is a hot topic at work... The general concensus amongst those of us who have been around for a while is that the org is fucked. No other gov't agency treats it's staff as poorly as does ontario corrections. You guys coming in now have no idea of how bad it is and how dispos...

Re: Ontario Correctional Services

Am I understanding the process correctly? 1. Submit application 2. You get invited to do written test 3. You get invited to FITCO test OR should I book a Fitco test in preparation? I interpreted the application process as noted above, but now I'm second guessing. Close! It's more like this: 1. Subm...
