Re: Ask the CBSA!

I have watched the CBSA show on tv and find that its very imformative and for the most part professional. Just wondering if there is a shaving policy ? Seems like theirs lots of 5 o'clock shadows and goatees? Looks bad for dress and deportment, but thats just my opinion. Other than that, I like the...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

Hi all. Just registered for the purpose of inquiring about the CBSA and it's requirements. I've recently considered the CBSA as a career path, and before I contemplate things further I figured I should see if someone might be able to answer some questions I have about the requirements to join the C...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

The Deficit Reduction Action Plan (DRAP) is nothing new, but I wouldn't be surprised if it affects staffing levels and new hires drastically. With regard to the television show, it is produced by a private company. Some BSO's in the regions have already been told they're overstaffed - that's genera...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

Searched around for some tips for the interview but I can only find things that are years old. Just wondering if anyone has been through an interview recently to give me some insight although I know you can't really specify too many details. Also I am going through the SBSO process not sure how tha...

Re: More douche dog owners

I was at the mall one day with my wife and we heard a crying sound - turns out there was a puppy in a car with all of the windows rolled up. It was on the passenger side floor and obviously in distress. We opened the car door (which was luckily unlocked) and took the dog out. The heat was amazing! W...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I also got invited to the interview. Anyone know what the need for BSO in the GTA are? Even if I were successful, I'm not sure if I am willing to go anywhere in the country. GLTA Nobody's needed in the GTA. Not one. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Might as well quit now, because any other POE is just, like, REA...

Re: Crazy body parts dude

I worked in psych hospitals for almost 20 years and you know what? The patients in there NEVER had eyes like that. They were sick and could be helped - people like this guy, Bernardo, Homolka, Williams etc. etc. are fucked up, wired wrong, sociopaths, whatever. The only thing that can fix them is ma...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

I'm in the same situation as the others applying for the SBSO positions. I just want to say that this whole recruiting process has been a little sour for me. One example: A few days, I found out that all the positions are filled; that's fine with me, but what pisses me off is the fact that I had to...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

Hi, I'm currently a candidate for the summer Student BSOT position within the GTA. I was led to believe that the position would commence the first week of May; now I'm told that candidates are being selected all throughout the month of May. Why has the CBSA pushed back the start time? As of yet, I ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Just to add some mustard to this baloney sandwich... Training at Riguad has changed and is now an 18 week program. Better cut out the spa treatments and change to no-name Mac and Cheese... I'll further add to the confusion. Those of us who are already in the field have heard that because it's now a...
