Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Again, this is how it will go. At some point, staffing will come in and say which divisions, ie provinces are open for your troop. You will put those in order or preference. A week or so later you will be told which one you are going to. Then you’ll be given, essentially, the weekend to pick and ma...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Had a good laugh at this. I’m near my 10th week here at Depot and I still have no security clearance yet. Every step is quite random in terms of speed Holy...10 weeks? That's nuts. On a different note, how is Depot so far? Any useful tips? Learn to manage your time, and figure out how to make Depot...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Are you guys on Phoenix as well? Here in Corrections we are and it's horrible. Some of my fellow officers haven't been paid in months. No, just takes time for the bumps in pay to happen. I had troop mates still waiting on their six month bump while I was putting in for my year; I had my 6 month two...

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

For people who have gone through depot with kids ; How did you cope with being away from them for 6 months? When I go, my oldest will be around 2 1/2 and my youngest around 6 months. The 6 month old wont know the difference, but my 2 1/2 year old screams when I leave the room. I know he will get ov...

Hey guys. Bout to apply since I waited the month after lasik surgery. I notice on Jobs.gc.ca that it says "application closing on: October 31, 2018". Does this mean that it doesn't matter what time I apply on since my application won't be sent off until October 31 or what does that mean? ...

Thoughts? Don't cross post.

For your age, as long as you are in shape, go for it. I had two 50 year olds in my troop. They had their strength and weaknesses.

Re: RCMP APPLICANT GENERAL CHIT CHAT

Just wondering if anyone has, or knows of anyone who has received a troop offer less than two weeks in advance of the start date? I had to pull out of my troop on the Monday before due to an emergency surgery the day before. My replacement was called as soon as I was off the phone with my recruiter...
