Hey all, I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with how long their background investigation took?

Hello everyone,

I have my ECI/LFI coming up with Toronto. If anyone did it recently and passed, can you please share some tips on how did you prepare for it to be successful?

Thanks, I appreciate the help.

They usually are about 2 weeks in length or so. When did you meet with your psych doctor?
I met with my psych about 2.5 weeks ago, and started my background around the same time.

Hey Max,

I've had a similar timeline. I had my psych appointment on Jan 17 and background started roughly the same time. So like you, I'm patiently waiting. Keep me posted if you hear anything! Good luck!

It seems from what I can see in previous hiring periods, offers do not go out until at least mid month of the second month (eg February in this case). A little while longer to wait.

If you went to the interview preparation session follow those instructions and you'll do fine :)

Hey Everyone,

I was recently notified that I am in BG, but the thing is I haven't done my MMPI-2 yet or scheduled for it.

Is there something I should follow up with in regards to this or just go with the flow? I know the process is not always a definitive line of steps.

Appreciate any input,

Thanks!

Hello Everyone,

I am kinda stuck on the flexibility competency. Is anyone able to provide just one example question and answer from their experiences?

I've researched so much but i am literally stuck. If you can help, it would mean a lot.

Thank you, I appreciate the help.

No. Every person whom has completed (whether successful or not) this part of the interviews signed a document stating they would not divulge any answers to the questions and anything relating to the interview. If you can't figure it out, then this career may not be for you. No one on the job will spoon-feed you.

The key is to understand what the competency is truly about.

Flexibility is about willing to take advice or openness to a new idea and putting it into practice or use, even if you have reservations. It shows that you're not dead set in your ways. It doesn't have to be life changing or magical, can be quite simple (probably more simple than you realize) and it doesn't mean you've moved forward using the idea.....sometimes you find it doesn't work for you.

It's not about the change being permanent, it's all about willingness to try a different point of view.

For PRU (peeps in cars) it's 7 on 5 off. Days and afternoons are 10s, nights are 8s. Days to afternoons to nights. Days start on Sat with last day on Fri. Afternoons on Thurs w/last day on Wed. Nights on Mon w/last day as Sun.

Other units like PRG, CRU, etc work 8 on 6 off. Days and afternoons only and all tens.

CIB works the old compressed.

Testing of 4 on 5 off 5 on 4 off is being done in outer divisions.
