On the other hand the opportunity to work and live anywhere in Canada is a huge plus in my opinion. The chance to possibly transfer anywhere is a huge positive.

Hey guys, I read the whole thread and I agree with the fact that first, If you don't fit the needs and you have stuff to clean up, do it before applying and if you get deferred, you ABSOLUTELY should take it like a man and not try and appeal it.

I don't think any circumstances are good enough to appeal a decision on because as some of you said, that will label you as the "guy who whined his way in". Of course some situations can be exceptionnal and discussed by appealing in my opinion is shooting yourself in the foot.

I don't have as much experiences as you gentlemen have; I'm currently at the RMSI stage of my process and I think I'm doing a good way of getting ready for it. :thumbsup: ! But as much as I wish I won't get deferred, I would take it like a man if it was to happen. Although, I will try and make sure to be as attractive for them as possible!

Wish me luck! And any advices would be much appreciated!
Richard

recently had some experience with an appeal process, which resulted in a very positive outcome...I know and understand that no agency owes you nothing BUT if you want something-fight for it...so I did :) I know there is an opinion that other jobs don't offer you an appeal, so why should we...totally agree BUT I honestly believe that you can have a whiny appeal and an appeal, where you provide more in-depth information of your circumstance, hence making the appeal board more familiar with yourself as a candidate...anyway just my 0.02 ...

Without going too much into detail...i expected a deferral ...and just wanted to get it out of the way....when it came down to the end the length of it was MUCH longer than anticipated...with nothing to lose i chose to write a VERY descriptive letter to the S/Sgt and Appeal Commitee attaching letters of commendation from my current LEO career and was given 2 years after my file was reviewed. Dm if you have more questions

They will never tell you the reason. Take another look at your application and improve it. Be competitive. Which service did you apply though?

3 years? Must've been RCMP. I wouldn't recommend appealing. They have their reasons for not hiring and deferring you. You may extend the deferral. The reality is, NO ONE OWES YOU THIS CAREER. Move on with your life, apply somewhere else or go do something else.

You withheld, minimized or lied about something. The information you provided did not line up with what they uncovered. Only you know what you could have been deferred for.

I know it sucks. I wish you all the best.

RCMP, Toronto PS, or Durham RPS?

I concur with the others comments.

Wait and improve, or apply to another PS, or look for other work.
