Wow - can't belief they are still taking so long to process people.  When I joined the reserves it took all of 2 months to swear in - jump to regs was 3 months. if I had to wait as long as you folks I probably would have said screw it.

If I say screw it, then this job is not for me.  I've waited (coming up on 10 months) and if something went wrong and I had to wait another year, I'd wait

Yes and all the waiting is the fault of the recruiting system and not because there is anything unusual about the applicants or their circumstances.

True Enough Kincanucks - the system has become a machine out of control - the only things I had to wait for was a week for fingerprinting and the next basic start.

dukkadukka I guess the job is not for me then because I wouldn't wait that long and am sooo glad I didn't have too as I have 23+ years fo service now.

I just always thought it was the usual "hurry up and wait" mentality of the CF! My job choice can be ridiculously fast paced, or be reallll slow. If you want something badly, the question isn't why are you waiting... it's why WOULDN'T you wait?

I wouldn't because I have gone without food or a place to live and much prefer to be able to go home and eat. A great deal of potentially good recruits are lost because they can not afford to wait a year or more for a job so they find something else. By the time the recruiting staff get back to them it is too late as the member has moved on.

Was wasted because everyone I have personally known that had to wait for a long time there was nothing wrong - it was the system - our next opening for medicals is 3 months, testing is this date (oops out of town) or we will get back to you 6 months latter.  Know of a Cpl working full time reserve that has been waiting 18 months to get in a trade that is short - problem?? maybe over qualified??  I have also helped with recruiting at a reserve unit and experienced the hassle that can be.

In the folder I got, I'm thinking you got one as well, there was a business type card, with the phone/fax number... and the address. It's probably on that, and even if it isn't take a stroll down to the CFRC, and talk to them.
