Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Morning, While training at depot, how do cadets keep in touch with their families ? Are they allowed to use smart phones and internet? Because during the time I spent working with the army in the middle east, we were prohibited from using any electronic device with camera or has access to the inter...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Anyone have any experience with a failed polygraph interfering with other law-enforcement applications? I have mine coming up soon and am kind of concerned I’ll fail just because of nerves. I understand that has happened to a lot of people. Would it look bad in the future if I was to apply to anoth...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Hell, if your so worried about saving CBSA money, why don’t you volunteer to pay for the whole recruitment process? Why dont you pay for your whole 18 weeks training as well as room and board in Rigaud? Shouldn’t be a problem right? Why is this still being talked about? The process is what it is. T...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I would really like to get my CPR recertification out of the way but I’m a little hesitant to do so with my SC still pending. Since my days to troop notice is 30 days, does recruiting have to give me the full 30 days to prepare for my troop date or is there a chance I may be given more (or less) th...

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 ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

cbmcmsa, better go back and read again what I wrote. You called out anyone that complains after they applied knowing what they are getting into. You called 30% of the unhappy BSOs "whiners" with your statement. It is sad I have to explain to you what I wrote as you didn't get it. I'm going to take ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

... The Agency gets 20,000+ applicants a year and most of them know what they're signing up for. The ones that are willing to make ALL of the sacrifices are the ones who are going to not only get hired, but be happy about their choice. Those who aren't, won't. Just my two cents. The own CBSA audit ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Looks like I missed a fun weekend! To those on here looking for advice, mine is, listen to Dave or any other mod/admin because they are or were actively employed in a Law Enforcement/Peace Officer capacity. As has been said several times, by moaning about how "unfair" the process is for you, you are...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

As I have posted here earlier, a week ago I got an invite to a CBSA interview in Rigaud (I live in Ottawa). Per advice given here, I told them that I have no way of getting there and can't afford the costs for renting a car and getting a hotel, not to mention it conflicting with university, and req...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

I have a quick question folks..does the car payment and credit card payment affects the chances of being hired even if the credit is good ? 🤔🤔🤔🤔 Thanks Um. You're good my dude. Don't worry about that lol. Everyone makes credit card and car payments. Likely ok, but everyone's different, especially w...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

At which point of the OITP process did you guys get your official invite to Rigaud? During or after online? You need an invite to Rigaud to do the online training. I'm doing online now and in the invite to online it said this is not an official invitation to the academy. Because going to Rigaud is ...

Re: GENERAL CBSA APPLICANT CHIT CHAT

Security Clearance granted yay! Can anyone shed some light on how the relocation works when you get posted somewhere? Do they send you there for a few days to find a place to stay? Or do they have people that find something for you? Thanks! Yeah! Congrats!!!! What’s your next step? I wanna know too...
