Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Just had my interview today and was fingerprinted afterwards. Is that a good sign, or is that just standard procedure now? Fingerprints are usually based on your DOB. This issue has been brought up in this forum previously. Use the search tab, it's your best friend. FYI, it's a good sign, as long a...

Re: Under armour boots

I was looking at these online last night. More than a few people were saying in reviews that the goretex version of the boot doesn't do a good job at all of keeping their feet dry. Anyone else have a problem like that? I'd like to pick up a pair of these but don't want to spend the coin on it if th...

Re: Ask the CBSA!

Hey there, my first post. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a precedent in any field where a potential employer offers an 18 week unpaid training where the job is not at all guaranteed. I'm having trouble envisioning what kind of candidate can commit five months of life with no pay for a job that th...

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Re: Applying to Correctional Service Canada

Well, If you can, please provide an example of what you are talking about... I am indulging because the way you came on the forum and just said that is a bit odd and if you don't provide some proof it just looks like you are fishing or instigating. I respect your opinion, whatever you say or think....
