I’m on the Pacific Region. The email stated that I passed the VidCruiter portion. Follow up emails included Candidate packages as well as Date and Locations for the in-person interview.

Wow right on. That’s fast. Congratulations. I only have my interview scheduled for this Thursday. Still a ways to go after that, if I even pass. Are you a carry over from the last competition?

Just finished my interview. It didn’t go as I’d hoped it would. Pretty confident this is then end of the road for me. Maybe next time. Good luck everyone else and congrats to those who were successful!!

Come on. Think positive:). If you made it through the RCMP process, then I’m sure you did fine here.

Hey all new potential cadets - I just want to jump in here and remind everyone to keep their chins up. The application process can be incredibly stressful, especially when you're waiting to hear back on your results and whether you've made it to the next round - in the end, though, this job is worth it, and the horizon even looks promising for some better compensation.

If anyone has questions on training, job life, etc, please feel free to send me a PM.

In the meantime, go into every stage of this and give it 110%. Come out swinging, and you'll make it.

Hey all!

Had my medicals this morning in moncton, NB. Can say that it went well and was informed that I was found medically fit to move forward. Now it’s back to the waiting game for god knows how long!

Interview is in 2 days, not normally one to get nervous, but this process has me a tad unnerved!

Any last second tips from successful interview participants? Might help ease my nerves, I've been wanting this job for a long time.

Fingers crossed, and good luck to all other participants! Look forward to meeting some of you!

Finally!! I have been following this forum for the last couple month and couldn't get on, that has been sorted out. So I have been going through this round of selection, I am in the Pacific area. I completed my interview Aug 9th and recieved an email that I was place in the pre qualified candidate pool on Aug 22. I now have to complete my PARE by Nov 30th. It's nice to finally be part of the forum, good luck!
