Hello,

I figured I would update my post. As you can see, I have switched to NCM trades as I have a background in Earth Sciences and Physical Geography, more specifically in Geomatics. I previously applied to be an officer but I figured I would like to work in an area that is more related to my field of study. When I went to the first step I received an email mentioning I was successful but I did very poorly in my CFAT. Therefore, I am going to rewrite the test again next week. I have been studying really hard and this time I am making sure that I am prepared.

One thing I would mention to some of you, if you think you did not do well on your CFAT please contact the recruiting office and go talk to an officer to see if it's in your best interest to re-write the test. As I was told, I would have gone through all the steps but would not have never been selected for a position due to my low and poor score on the CFAT. You are applying for a job and the positions are very competitive. Therefore, make sure you do very well on the cfat and everything else.

Though, I received an email today saying that I was selected for the next process which is the medical and interview but I'm going to disregard this email and keep prepping for the test next week.

Best of luck to everyone!

Hey,

I was just notified today that my re-enrollment waiver was approved, and all I'm waiting on now to be placed on the competition list is my reliability screening.

My screening was started three weeks ago, I was told my references would be called about two weeks ago, but they still haven't been. Is that something I should be concerned about? Does a reliably check normally take long ?

Does anyone know how I can go about getting the next selection dates for my trades (sonar op, and mar tech). The last step in my application was.my security screening and it had been returned to.my recruitment center, just waiting for the commanding officer to sign off on it and I'll be competition listed.

Thanks

Hey guys,

I am applying for reg force navy, sonar op is my trade of choice, among mar tech and nci op. My file manager is saying I will probably get sonar op since it is priority.

The last step in my application was my security clearance, which was approved on June 6th but I have not yet been competition listed.

The next selection is June 20th, does anyone know if based my normal.time lines if I would make the competition list before then?

Thanks

I was informed that my file is very competitive and that as a visible minority I may get a call due to the fact that Canada has to hire according to Employment Equity Act.

This act is suppose to break barrier and discrimination over minorities and certain group of people. Technically, if two person have exactly the same qualifications, priority might be given to one from minorities. But it is rarely the case, has every person are different, so it is often given to the more competitive person.

That being said, I do not work for CF and I do not know if they work with quotas, like Quebec public sector and police do. (Which is for me pure stupidity) But if CF do not use quotas, you would have the same chances as your peers and will be selected out of your competivness only!

Good day

Hey guys. Does anyone here know when selections are for navy nci op or sonar op?

I have been competition listed for a week or two, but have been both trades are currently in high priority and it's currently a continuous selection. I am a bmq bypass if that changes anything.

Thanks
