Wow that's crazy.. Mine has only been pending for a week now I guess. I wonder why they're taking so long with them.

I honestly don't think they really look into your clearance until you get offered a troop. I went into security clearance 2 weeks before this other applicant. He got offered troop 1 and they had his done In a week. I've only been offered a troop a week ago. So maybe soon

No, they are working on it long before you are offered a troop, and it does actually take more than a week to bang one out.

Even for the most basic security clearance to allow you to have access to an RCMP building but not have access to any sensitive information, for positions like a custodian or a cell block guard/matron the turnaround is anywhere from 6-8 weeks, and those security packages don't get sent in unless there is a written intent to hire attached to it as well, basically meaning the job has been offered pending security clearance. If you're looking at a secret or top secret clearance there is a lot more intensive screening involved, so assuming they just leave it in a file until they get told it needs to be done because they offered you a troop is flat out wrong, because it's frankly impossible to do one properly in that amount of time.

They just did euro connections in a week.

Also I wasn't saying it sits in a file per say. However I definitely think they do them according to priority. An applicant who has everything done and going to Depot soon is a much higher priority than an applicant who isn't finished medical

I highly doubt that, what I think is he/she interpreted whatever they were told by a recruiter (who doesn't actually have anything to do with getting the security clearance other than sending in the paperwork) to mean that, when in fact it likely had been in progress for quite some time before that.

Departmental Security is a separate unit from Recruiting, they do a lot more than clear applicant packages, and they aren't triaged according to who goes to Depot in a week or who hasn't had their medical done yet, whenever a file is submitted it gets assigned to someone in that unit who starts working on it. They have their targets for certain types of screenings, and none of them is anywhere close to one week, because it's unrealistic to think anyone could actually do what needs to be done that quickly, even if they were only working on one file at a time, which they are not, it would be unrealistic.

Just doesn't make sense for my case. I have been in that stage for 2 months and I moved 2 times in my life. Never left canada. Have no social media accounts. Been at the same job for 4 years. My background investigation took 2-3 weeks and my final suitability was done in 3 days. I've also had security clearance for hydro one. Just saying you would think I would be a security reviewers dream

Gatsy I can't send you a PM for some reason. Yes basically from when I got offered a troop placement to when I was told I passed my security clearance was exactly one week.

He did not tell me when exactly that they started working on my clearance but the only time I heard him mention it was a day before he offered me a troop.

hope this clarifies it for you! :thumbsup:
