I just got an email to complete the POSI interview. They asked for my 310s license.
Where were your locations that you applied for if you don’t mind?

Was not doing the POSI (Performance Oriented Structured Interview) one of the first interviews we had to performed when we first applied and had to pass in order to continue? I may be mistaken. If I remember correctly I did mine back in February.

Yes that is the first interview. They could be trying to expand the talent pool

Question for any current TEO's. I know there are several variables but on average, how often would you say that you have to attend court?

Almost ever charge you write will be fought by the individuals or company, but come court time they get deals.

Also for the person asking about stages, they are not in the screening stage, they are in the Selection stage right now. Next is to offer successful candidates positions, which can come at any moment.

Step 1: Job Advertising Job opportunities available on the OPS Careers are posted for a minimum of 10 working days. In addition, some of the job opportunities may be advertised on external websites. We continue to collect applications for a job advertisement until 11:59 EST on the closing date.

Step 2: Application Screening All applications received on or before the closing date are screened and rated against the qualifications outlined in the job ad. Applicants whose resume and cover letter best demonstrate how they meet the qualifications to do the job will be invited to continue in the hiring process.

Step 3: Evaluation This is your opportunity to show us how you best meet the qualifications outlined in the job ad. This is where we evaluate the candidates invited to continue in the hiring process. There will be a number of assessments based on the qualifications in the job ad, for example presentations or a written test usually including an interview.

Step 4: Selection of Successful Candidate We assess and rate candidates based on the results from the evaluation process in Step 3 to select the best-qualified candidate to fill the position. We are looking to hire the candidate whose qualifications best meet the requirements to do the job.

Step 5: Offer to the Successful Candidate If you are the successful candidate, we will contact you with a verbal offer of employment. If you accept, we will send you an appointment letter that will include information such as your start date, position classification, starting salary, and, if relevant, your bargaining unit and name and address of your bargaining agent.

Step 6: Position Filled We have completed the recruitment process and successfully hired the top candidate into the position.

Depends how many tickets you write and how many different jurisdictions you are in. I would average 900-1100 tickets a year when I was an MTO Officer and I covered 4 municipalities. Of those charges, I remember I calculated I got trial notices for about 30%. I would be in court 3-4 times a month in various locations. I would actually end up having a trial/testifying about 10-15 times a year. I was an MTO Officer for 7.5 years and probably testified 80+ times. It gives you fantastic court experience.

Of course you can always be a schmuck and write little to no tickets and spend all your time at the scale. And then when you do get trial notices you can agree to have them all plead down to minor offences so you can leave court early and eat lunch. Then you won’t get much court time, but you would be a schmuck.
