Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Out of curiosity, has anyone who received the pre-employment psychological assessment release form and sent it back, heard anything from an outside provider, assuming your next step is the psychological evaluation. (Not intended for people who got the pre-employment psychological assessment release...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

How about we stay on topic, please. Personal politics that are contrary to the current national protocols upheld by the organization we are all applying to are not really the point, and are absolutely in the minority here.

"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. ...

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...
