I hope for your sake that's the case, although I suspect it's a total crapshoot and will depend on the demand for the job and the recruiting centre.  Do you know if your trade choices are open right now?  Maybe DAA can help with that.  Are they all open now because it's post-April 1?  I've heard the lists on forces.gc.ca are never accurate.

From what DAA has told me Steward is in-demand and well my recruiting center is really really slow compared to others apparently.

I just thought I'd share this phone call I made today.

I called up and asked for an update as I do about once a month. My file manager asks me to hold on a second like usual while she looks at my file. This time is taking a lot longer than usual however, after about 3-4 minutes she asks me to wait a little longer while she gets some papers together. At this point I'm beaming because I think an offer just landed on their desk and shes going to tell me over the phone. She comes back a few minutes later and says that my security clearance went through and the Cpt. signed off on it yesterday...

So at this point I'm a little underwhelmed and confused and ask about what that means. She tells me that that's all I need to get merit listed.

Keep in mind that I was merit listed LAST May...

This leads into a several minute back and forth about whether I was merit listed or not.
Finally she looks back to my file from May 2013 and sees that I was indeed merit listed but was taken off in January to be put back on around nowish for a reason I'm still not clear about.

All in all it's about par for the course so I'll continue to hurry up and wait  :)

Question of interest: Would the confusion simply have been caused by your addition of pilot, which was added much after your initial merit listing? Or have you yet to complete ACS?

Either way glad to hear things were sorted out :)

No it wasn't that, that was the first thing I asked actually.

1)  No one can tell you that.

2)  Yes, the military does a medical.  Doesn't matter if you've had one before or not.

thanks man, I was so stressed out because my medical insurance expired recently and I hadn't renewed it yet and I was afraid the army wouldn't accept me with no medical insurance

Originally had my medical scheduled for end of April, but I had to reschedule almost a month later because I have deep tissue tearing in my ankle and I don't think they'd be to happy with me showing up to a medical with a pretty badly injured ankle. Unfortunate! But, I'm looking forward to doing the medical.

The military doesn't care if you're insured or anything lol. They give you insurance when you eventually get in.

You do realize that everyone does not get in right? It is not a guaranteed job for everyone who applies, which seems to be a common attitude on here. Maybe he should look at getting medical insurance just for himself, so you know if something bad happens he's covered.

I realize that, I didn't say he would or wouldn't, just eventually or one day. I don't think someone wants to hear another person tell them they'll never get in. Besides, he may make it. Whether he chooses to get medical insurance is up to him, doesn't reflect what so ever on your app.

Spoke to my recruiting officer, medical is booked for April 29th. As long as I can walk they said I'm fine. Also still under parents insurance as I'm not 21 yet.
