No it wasn't an HR rep that told him. It was the psychologist who tested him and who told him off the record.
Seemed like a fair statement.
Thanks for your comments dudes.

Hey I got invited for a fitness test for the Nuclear Security Officer position, I received some information regarding the testing however it is pretty confusing. Would anyone have a better idea on how this testing is and best way to prepare for it? Is it almost like doing the PREP or FITCO ?

Was this invite for the Bruce Power posting or the OPG posting?

Does that apply for the Security Officers or the Tactical Response team? I got the outline of what the test is however it just seems bit confusing. I was wondering if there is a video or demonstration online somewhere like they have for the PREP to get a better idea of it.

Any idea after how long OPG hires you on at permanent fulltime form Temp/Contract positions. Also is there a conflict of interest working as a correctional officer and a NSO ?
