I promise you that the answer to both your questions will not change your life in any way. Literally does not matter why x person in x province/city/town got deferred for x reason.

Not necessarily the case, two of my friends got deferred, one was because he didn't live in Canada long enough at the time( at the time he only lived here for 5 years, he was PR but he was deferred for two years), another friend got deferred due to some embarassing reason. They were both deferred for two years around the RMAQ step in the application process.

For those who are at the end and just awaiting a troop offer, did recruiting give you an idea of what months they currently filling troops for?

Nope, I was just told by the recruiter that she will call me once she receive instruction from the troop loader. A few people posted last week that they got the golden call and it was between Sept.16 to 30.

Scroll a few pages back and you’ll see some dates. Keep in mind though that this could change at any moment and you might get a sooner or later offer. There are people coming and going all the time at Depot, so you might get called at a moments notice or you might have to wait a few months.

And also that just because person A receives a Troop offer five weeks from now, it doesn't mean that the next applicant in the stack will get offered a spot five or six weeks away as well. People get slotted into spots for a number of reasons, sometimes people have to pull out or postpone after being loaded into a scheduled troop and as a result a vacancy is created. Sometimes people who were offered a spot needed longer to get their affairs in order at home. Sometimes one region has to spread their new hires out over a specified time period, or uses up their allotted budget for new hires and has to hold off on sending any more people for a stretch of time. There are a thousand factors to consider other than what the guy who was in line in front of you was offered.

Application timelines aren't fair, the fair is where you go to get funnel cakes and ride merry-go-rounds.
When people get too chummy with me, I like to call them by the wrong name to let them know I don’t really care about them.

You are right, it will not change my life one bit! I have a deferral period too and asked about it to see how the process goes!!

I promise you that the answer to both your questions will not change your life in any way. Literally does not matter why x person in x province/city/town got deferred for x reason.

Good morning/afternoon everyone :)

So far in the process I have completed and passed the RPAB test and submitted my selection package.

Got an email today however which has surprised me. I got an invitation for another test?

The positions for the test says: Various Clerical positions. The email says “I am pleased to advise that you demonstrated in your application that you meet the experience criteria. You have been screened in on the selection process. You are invited to attend a written test and the details are as follows:”

What test is this exactly? Is this new for 2019 recruits? Regardless I 100% plan to go and pass this test, whatever it takes :).

Was just curious if this is the RFI (right fit interview).

Thanks

Is a digital photo frame allowed on the desk in your pit instead of a framed 5x7 photo if the digital frame is the same size?

Yes. The only thing is that it needs to be froze to one picture during work hours.

Hey Blue Line! Have a question for ya. My situation is pretty unique so despite the extensive combing through the archives, I don’t have an answer.

I am in the process of joining the OCC as an operator for K Div. I passed my interview and medical so I am now on my security clearance.

Years ago I was detained in a bad stop at a retail store and falsely charged with Shoplifting Under $5000. The charge was eventually dismissed because I didn’t steal anything. The retail store claimed to have video footage but couldn’t produce it as all I had done was walk through the store to get to an exit where my car was (it was an anchor store in a mall, now nationally defunct, no surprise.)

I work with the Alberta Solicitor & Justice General now and had to produce a criminal record check. Nothing was on it, but I had a letter from my lawyer at the time stating my situation, and court records.

I’m planning to talk about this in my security interview; after all, I better get in front of it. But do you know if the background investigators will see the withdrawn charge due to lack of evidence, or does it just look like arrested - charged - withdrawn, with no further information? I’d like to know in advance to get another letter from a lawyer, updated fingerprinting record check from EPS, and potentially to apply for a record destruction, as this bad stop has the potential of ruining my career path.

If you can’t talk about it because it’s a breach of confidentiality then no worries.
