@fonthill, I was a deputy superintendent at my home country, relocated here a decade ago and unfortunately I will be starting from a very low level now. My point is that fitness isn't the issue, some of us are more fit than some now. This body carried three kids and I worry I may not be as fit which is why i am asking. Alot of applicants are young, mainly 20's, i am a little over 40 now, calm down on people and no, I do not want another profession, at my age I know what I want, reason I passed every step to this stage and willing to quit my job. I don't know about others but for me, this job is a passion. I will henceforth keep my mouth shut in this forum since one has to be extremely cautious what is asked because answers from you guys are so out of this world which is shocking as correctional officers i know are usually compassionate, even the few i met recently. Enjoy your day.
I apologize behalf of the response Fonthill has given you. It does not reflect majority of us here that wants to help others. Having said that, please don't feel discouraged to ask any questions, I just recommend you filter out the ones that does not help you and take in the ones that give good advice.

Do you apologize for other officers that are right or speak their mind which they do not sugar coat and give a straight answer.

I feel your a yea person also or a person that tends to suck up. Just my observation.

Wouldn’t want work with you as you would apologize during an investigation when nothing has happened. 88)

Your observation is irrelevant as based on a lot of your posts, you are notorious to rub others the wrong way. Giving a straight answer "respectfully" is different, however you clearly lack the respectfully part and just speak without a filter.

Good luck to you.

Once all your testing is completed then it would be the FITCO
Next

Enhanced security clearance


Next
Interview

Next

Conditional offer of appointment

That was taken from the website

Hiring will probably be halted due to us changing unions. Once this happens everything will be frozen as we wouldn’t have a contract anymore

"Rumour is" is not a confident way to start a statement that is supposed to be true.

Alright Nostradamus..when is this going to happen?

Because...it won't...can't say never but not anytime soon.

Time shall tell.

It is nice to have an open mind and to let people on here see what is actually going on so it isn’t shell shock for them

Communication is the key ;)

Hello Applicants,
I just wanted to touch base on the process for the Correctional.
I completed my Cognitive Test online 3 weeks ago. I still haven`t received any response from the recruiting yet, Does anyone know how long this process would take , and also any advice or suggestions for the next stage which is the REACT BEHAVIOURAL TEST....

-your answer is much appreciated.
