Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

"It's prudent financial advice to accumulate an emergency savings fund that can last for a few months if necessary." Stop buying all that BS you don't need or can't afford and you will not cry to Govt anytime you have no salary for 2-3 months ;) It amazes me how many claim they will be "bankrupt" i...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

A little off-topic: I happened to check out the Board index > Law Enforcement Applicants (FAQ) > RCMP Applicant FAQ. There is a 2009 post from 'happydude' on there condensing some info on RCMP posts that has some useful (and amusing) information and insights. Has PARE tips as well.

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

I think the agency has good reason to do testing/interviews as they do. This notion of "quality applicants" and the "most qualified" has an elitist taint. There are plenty of soft skills that make up a great candidate/BSO that aren't necessarily discerned in the tests, that comes out in interviews. ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

...As I have tried to say here but nobody has seemed to get the message, my issue is that other Ottawa candidates are getting LOCAL interviews but others such as myself are being told to travel. If there are places local to you then you should be given that option, even if it extends the length of ...

Hey guys hope all is well with your processes. Anyone else waiting for their psych assessment and psych interview? I got the results of my interview and passed on December 9th 2019. I waited about 1 year and 5 months for my interview I hope it doesn’t go on that long again.

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Sometimes people just need to tell it like it is. What a difference from when I went through just 10 short years ago with another Federal agency... so many sacrifices and noone said boo. We didnt even get an allowance while away for training. The entitlement is strong these days. If you want it. Yo...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

As if I just got an interview invite after they previously bounced me from the process? I won't complain but can somebody make this make sense? And as if they give me 8:15 am in Rigaud (I live in Ottawa) when I don't have a car of my own. Does anybody know if I'd be subject to knowing my PoE in adv...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

May have been missed, but a few pages ago I do recall posting something about how I was advised that they are returning to the POE at invite time model for future intakes, including some of the later ones currently in process at the moment. So it's in progress, being looked at, they are working on i...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

I know in my process with the CBSA, it specifically asked at the application stage to list three areas you would like to work (check boxes beside ports) and they were all in the same region. This differed from previous postings and differed greatly from when I started with the feds 10 years ago and...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Someone else also said that some PoEs will have their own staff come to Rigaud before week 10 to try to "poach" recruits to sign for them before the draws, which effectively removes them from the draws if they agree. The guy said Pearson came to him and offered some perks to sweeten the deal to sig...
