Re: 2018 FSWEP - Student Border Services Officer

Does anyone know how the 5 weeks of training looks like? What are the hours? Days? How much of it is classroom vs. hands on? Etc.

Thanks in advance.

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I have question about picking your location. On the CBSA website it states that: "You will be asked to select your preferred work locations from a list of districts, including small communities. Are you prepared to relocate if necessary?" Does this mean you get to pick 3 locations within a district ...

Re: 2018 FSWEP - Student Border Services Officer

Yeah it really sucked at the time because I had to scramble to lineup another summer job last minute but luckily I was able to find something good. It sucks for students because the large majority have no experience with the government hiring process and think that it's straight forward like the pr...

Re: 2018 FSWEP - Student Border Services Officer

Oh nice! I got all those minus anything stating what the pay grade and hours of work are. They've congratulated on my "success in the selection process" and welcomed me to my port in a few emails but until they send an actual LoO I can only take everything with a grain of salt. Last year I got burn...

Re: 2018 FSWEP - Student Border Services Officer

When did you get your medical clearance? I’m cleared for my security and medical, but I had my medical on the 27th. I’m wondering if I will be getting an offer.. everything’s cleared and good The only way to find out if you're getting an offer is to wait. There's no way to tell if one gets an offer...

Re: 2018 FSWEP - Student Border Services Officer

That's a pretty good timeline! I had my security interview 2nd week of Feb and my medical first week of March. Were you given anymore additional information as to when training and things begin for you, or just an offer for cond. employment? All I was told is beginning of May and that they're still...

Re: 2018 FSWEP - Student Border Services Officer

Thanks, your comment just reassured me lol. I've been killing myself, refreshing my email all the time just waiting for something to come in. Especially since I know it's crunch time and they need to start hiring and finalizing everything. Just trying the vests on yesterday during measurements got ...

Re: 2018 FSWEP - Student Border Services Officer

I got an email this morning asking for some more information about me, and I was told to phone into a supervisor and book a day to come in a get my measurements for a uniform. Anyone else have this?

Did everyone who wrote the OTEE in SEP/OCT get their results already or did they just begin to send them out?

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Just finished writing the OTEE and have to admit I feel a little uncertain, it wasn't quite what I expected. I don't know how much I can say, but i found it hard. I studied my police prep book and that's not bad advise, but it doesn't give the complete picture. But I think most of all, it's just th...
