Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Hi all, I’d like to thank everyone on line who contributed to my questions by answering them over the last several months. I was looking forward to possibly going to Rigaud in July but covid put a halt on that, as we all know to well. I’m likely going to accept a federal government job offer in Hal...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I agree. It's a situation out of everyone's control and hopefully they consider it If you ask me, in general nobody should repeat any testing steps in the process , unless for a fault of their own. Once done, that should be it for the whole process, it's CBSA HR's job to make sure they wrap up the ...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

Anyone have status on initial interviews? Could they not be conducted through the phone as well?

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

How are you keeping your fitness up (cardio AND strength) with all of this crap going on? Since all the gyms are closed, most of us don't have home gyms and there is almost no basic equipment available to buy for home (I'm talking 2 pairs of useful dumbbells (35s and 45s minimum) and one collapsible...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Thankfully HR has reached out to me so there is still some hope ! :) Did they provide any update? Just said that because my PARE test was originally due in March (to be considered for summer/spring intake) it has been extended until May since most places holding the tests are closing. Did they at l...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Many banks are offering a freeze on mortgage payments. Hopefully the recruits and many of us can make some use of that offer. I’m currently in aviation and it’s not looking good for any of us. This is something the entire world is going through and hopefully it will come to an end soon until then s...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

It’s tough.....no income if being sent home until further notice? :cry: I truly feel for those students who are without income and have to go home until this passes. Very unfortunate circumstances and I hope you all make it back to resume training. Here's hoping everyone there now is fiscally able ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Just contacted him, it’s true. They’re all being sent home tomorrow. It was expected and makes sense. This will last at least 2 months,..., if we are lucky ..., but as always - chill out, the otherwise healthy people will get through it just fine. Pretty shitty if they don't at least continue to re...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

As i have friends and family that currently work for Health Canada (although this is just an assumption here) i believe everything will be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although we might consider ourselves overall healthy in general, it is a HUGE risk for the entire college to take that on ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Know what sucks with this whole Corona thing? I’m limited to 50lb dumbbells at home. So doing more slower movements and pauses. Know what’s a blessing? It’s getting my ass outside to train with jogging finally 😂 What are some of you up to for alternatives for training? My gym is still open; attendi...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

can BSO's become investigators in CID? If so how long doe that typically take before they're eligible? BSOs are the "feeder pool" for positions in the Intelligence and Enforcement (I&E) Branch. I&E Branch is made up of CID Investigators, Inland Enforcement Officers, Hearings Officers, Intelligence ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

If you think in numbers, how many hundreds of Interviews CBSA does for people that fail their Psych exams ? That's lots of $$$/hours wasted for the agency. Having in mind the large % fails at Psych, I would say CBSA wastes a lot of time and $ on Interviewing people that never make it. So therefore ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Is recruitment always this much of a joke? CBSA is not for you. Move on and save yourself and them a lot of time. Someone else would be GLAD to have your spot and would WELCOME a chance find a way to drive 1 1/2 hours to an interview. It's called initiative, and you don't have it. Bottom line. This...
