Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Not sure if anyone that has gone through or currently there can answer this one. Do Second Language Evaluation results have an impact on your first posting after completing Depot? Yes. However only if you are applying to somewhere that requires you to be officially bilingual (i.e. New Brunswick). S...

Re: New recruits at an all-time low

Nobody looking for a free ride Look at the OPP when they took away the ATS For myself, it is a complete turn off when you have to pay something that you are not even guarantee it get. #scam That gave me a good laugh. You couldn’t handle it here in Quebec. We have to pay for 3 years of college, then...

Re: New recruits at an all-time low

Well, another factor. What other jobs makes you pay for testing to get it. Get rid of ATS and you will see the numbers raise slightly I refuse to pay for ATS biggest scam out there I don't see how ATS requirement has anything to do with raising the number of recruits? It is up each individual servi...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I did read quite a few posts before asking the question, including Peter’s. Thanks for trying to help though. I was hoping to hear from someone at depot now who would obviously have the best idea. I don’t think I’m going out on a limb in guessing that is a common topic at the water cooler Hi folks,...

I'll be in your big brother troop.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Not sure of the Troop #, but to whichever one it was, I was the creepy old guy sitting in the bleechers in the Drill Hall while the Cpl was trying to show you how to salute and caught one of you with a stubble growth on his face at 16:15 today. I was waiting to attend the RCMP Vets Assoc Regina Div...

P.S.: no pressure on any of you, but the Commissioner is on Depot grounds as I type this.


That was us... We need lots of practice.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Just a general question ref housing. Say you are posted to BC upon completion of your training at depot. Do the RCMP have housing available to rent for its members or are members responsible to find and secure housing on their own? I’ve been looking at the prices of houses in the areas in BC and th...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I really didn't want to comment on this but I feel as though the question asked earlier regarding an appeal process is being met with answers revolving around a stigma that needs to be quieted. Just because you appeal doesn't mean you are a sore loser or a baby. This isn't a petition to be allowed ...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Just wondering if pull ups are strict pull ups or are kipping pull ups accepted? No Kipping. Unfortunately that rule has changed. In the last year they installed new pullup bars that are further from the wall. You are now told to learn kipping pullups to get your best numbers. Trying to learn how t...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Nobody will be able to tell you for sure. With that said.... I have a friend that applied 4 years ago. He received a 3 year deferral at the phone interview. He reapplied in the fall last year. After the phone interview he received a 3 year deferral. The very first reason on the deferral letter was ...
