I did my CVSA September 27th and medical October 26th (Submitted TB Results November 6th) and still haven’t gotten a confirmation letter...
I know I passed the
medical so I hope I pass the ESS...

I did my CVSA interview on September 30 and my Medical was on October 27, 2020. I got the same email as you guys saying if I pass the clearance and the medical my start date will be on January 4, 2021. A couple of days later I received another email, saying congratulations you passed both and your start date is January 4, 2021 and the ADW of your prison will give you a welcome letter and will be in touch when they decide placement in regards to training and a uniform fitting.. That is weird.

Honestly.. I'd give it till December then reach out. But I also think the skyrocketing covid rates may have something to do with it as well.
Never hurts to reach out as long as you're professional & polite. It shows you actually want the job.

Welp. That's a rejection for me. I won't get into specifics here. Please be careful out there. I'll try to re-apply in a year!

I also got a rejection based on ESS secondary review at last minute. I appealed and was told that while they can't guarantee anything, they strongly feel that my on paper scores were extremely strong and that it would not be wasted time and energy to reapply next year.

So, yeah. That's that, until next November.

Was the process of the appeal through Corrections of the Ministry of Public Safety?

No. I wrote back through Corrections Recruiting. Never heard of the other dept you mentioned. My file was reviewed by a couple supervisors and I was told that final ESS evaluations can not be reversed, but that had I shared full disclosure during ESS that the outcome would have been different and that while they can't guarantee a position, they feel strongly that it would not be wasted time and effort to reapply next year.

I got the same thing as OJ. But I asked for a shorter wait.

So, lesson here all applicants.. Be honest about everything on the initial SSQ document. I just remembered some stuff a few days of insane thinking about my CVSA and that's my story.. No matter how tiny or insignificant, just tell them. and just FYI I didn't fail my CVSA.. I passed it.

I asked if I should wait more than a year and they said a year wait is going to be ok.

Deferrals suck, but please don't get discourage. I, personally, have applied to tons of different agencies before being hired by BC Corrections. Come back stronger

BC Corrections

Postby Roscojames » Thu Feb 11, 2021 3:08 am

Hey everyone!
I am currently in the process of getting hired (hopefully) with BC Corrections. After successfully passing the COPAT and REACT, I had my BEI interview today. I really have no idea how it may have went. I definitely feel like I stumbled on some of my words and I think one of my stories I may have said it happened on the wrong date, if they are able to figure that out.
However, at the end they asked me which institution ( surrey, ridge etc) I would want to be placed at.
Can anyone tell me if that is a positive question or is it just typical that they’d ask anyone?
Also, how soon after interviews do they call references?

Thank you!

Hey!
What do BC correctional or peace officers carry on them?
Do they have guns or tasers?

When you say peace officer.. that’s a very broad term because police, corrections, border services are all peace officers and equipment slightly varies for everyone
