How long after the job posts close do interview invitations normally go out?

Is it safe to assume that if I haven't heard anything by now I'm out of luck?

Guys/ladies patience is key in applying.....I was 4 months from the time I submitted my resume to getting an email inviting me into the application process. Hang in there, just keep getting yourself into shape! Good luck

Everyone who's interviewing has already been contacted. I'm a peace officer, ex-military, and I have both a degree and a diploma, and I didn't even get an interview, so I have no idea what they're looking for.

That makes no sense. If it's true, why would they forego someone with your credentials? Bizarre. :|

yeah it does not make sense. 4yrs ago I applied with a diploma
and next to no experience in security and they interviewed me. Obviously
was not successful but, since then have been in the armoured car industry
and have done lots of volunteer assignments in the community. :|
