Has anyone been contacted for the January 2019 COTA yet? Last time i heard from them was an email in November, saying they have recieved all my required documents.
It'll be a bit before you hear back. Took me almost an entire year to go through everything.

I heard they're hiring strictly for TSDC though but that just might be a rumor
I'm also about 10 months in the process and I also received the email that I've completed all the mandatory requirements. The next step is to just wait for contact rom the CSRU. I hope the rumour isn't true about strictly hiring for TSDC I was hoping to get in OCDC.

This is less than what we make in Ontario. Nice to see paid training though.
$42,655.22 - $58,873.38 annually, plus a Temporary Market Adjustment ($40,394.060 annually for new recruits during the 33 day training program)

Thanks COFPC, for that info. Also, i called them to ask if the January class is full, and i got the same response i usually get. I will be contacted, they can't give me any information lol. I guess next week if i don't recieve a call, i can assume i won't be in for January considering that the people from the ministry would likely be on vacation.

That actually is how it works.
'Not sure what kumbaya workplace you came from, but... 'round here as a new hire you have to earn it. Sadly there are those who come in thinking they actually have a say in how things are run.
There is no way I will let a new CO dictate anything until I'm sure they're competent. If you take that as disrespectful well... Too bad. It's about maintaining order and staying safe.
'Sorry, but as a new hire it's YOU who has to show some respect first... You may think you know everything from that six weeks or whatever bullshit training course you paid for, but... You don't.
Senior officers don't owe you anything. If you don't agree... Go cry to management or admin.
Wrong. Nobody expects kumbaya but a basic level of human respect is a good practice, maintaining order and staying safe is fine. I never said anything about anyone knowing everything. I said senior staff can be very toxic to other employees, and they have little to no respect for new staff, and proceed to expect full respect in turn. If you think that's how it works, you've got another thing coming. I don't expect to be owed anything, but if you're going to be disrespectful and treat me like shit, dont expect me to respect you in the slightest. You're creating a difficult environment for new staff to learn the job and in doing that you're putting that safety and security you claim to value so much at risk.

The point is, you can't just treat people like shit and expect them to be okay with it. Your 20-30 years in does not give you that right.

And I'm not even talking about management yet. That's a whole other bag of issues.
