^Just a FYI. Most offers, even when hired, are conditional. So it's best to just keep your head down.

Even if Van didn't have a specific position on the forum, rudeness isn't cool nor warranted.

The guy made a comment out of excitement and gets a backhand of formality "training isn't being hired" who cares..... let the kid have his moment ...Hop off was a tad unnecessary and juvenile...but so is jumping on the kid when hes obviously just excited..... we have enough downers in this world....and many of us spend 12 hrs a day dealing with them.

Stay humble....work hard and be safe.

Good luck Bacon!

Again, both VS and I provide the hard-view of the Force to keep every candidate grounded - too many on here seem to think its a done deal, but we have see those deals disappear due to bad attitudes, particularly when it comes to the realization that they will NOT be able to sleep in their own little race-car bed at Mom and Dad's after finding out their first post is the other side of Kanata.

At this point in time I can finally say I have officially been HIRED by the Province of Alberta, Justice & Solicitor General. :mrgreen: Probation is 100% complete and was the final condition of employment. Been a long year and I am so thankful to have gone through the process. Just 32ish more years to go! :thumbsup: :P Good luck to everyone still in the process with their respective agency/force and always stay positive.

Long time lurker, first time poster. Last week I accepted an offer for the position of Special Constable. Absolutely thrilled to finally be working in law enforcement! Still can't believe it, it feels unreal.

Can’t believe I’m able to type in the section of the forum.... got my verbal offer from YRP today. Unreal feeling.... been trying for years, very humbling and extensive process but it is already worth all those life lessons, good luck everyone in your respective processes
