Or why not just follow the Interview instructions provided right on their website?

It is always good to READ what is posted first, before you ask a question that has been asked hundreds of times alre

I immediately got an answer. So, instead of spending countless minutes or hours looking for an answer, an answer was brought right to my topic. Genius. :)

That's a pretty poor way to look at it.  This forum has stickied topics dedicated to your questions.  All you have to do is read...

Point was not to offend anyone, however some seem to offend easily. I asked for help, and help was brought to my topic. The info was in more detail, and with supported links. So, not only did i get a decent answer, i received the necessary links needed instead of searching over outdated posts, or vague topics. Also, this question could be helpful to any others seeking the same answers to the questions I have asked. Therefore making my topic and questions reasonable without a doubt. Others after me can now click my topic, and see clearly without searching all over the forums, and have links related all in one spot. I don't understand why so many people took offence to this. I'm only trying to help myself, and fellow brothers. For those who accused me of laziness, I shake my head to you. I thank those who acknowledged my efforts.

But they won't do that. Instead, they will start yet another new thread on information that has already been covered ad nauseam. You could have accomplished the exact same thing as Mariomike by using the search function of this site or Google.

Don't try to hide your laziness by some misguided show of altruism. Your intent was not improve the availability of information on the site, but to have someone spoon feed you that information.

You all need to settle down. I wanted information, this site is for that. I asked a question. Stop arguing this. Instead of arguing, try adding more information related to the topic. There are many views on this topic. It is helping others and it is from 2016 rather than outdated information dating back to 2003. Answer the question don't argue that it's already been asked.

Make sure you mention your laziness and self-entitled attitude to the recruiter in your interview. It'll give you extra marks, those are qualities we look for.

There's a reason we keep topics grouped together, for ease of searching so you can read from the newest and backwards under you get your answer. If you're not capable of doing that, that's your loss and you'll end up either banned or on a read-only mode.

This question was intended to help me and others. The first person who responded did indeed help. It's nice to have information all under one topic rather than searching a bunch, that may or may not be even relevant. Sometimes there are topics, and inside the very topic are not answers at all. That's what this, and teamwork is all about isn't it... helping others.

Thank-you.

Merged.

As advised, Volcomfly, learn to use the Search Function.

And settle down.

It would have been a lot easier had you just looked at and read the CAF Recruiting Website, seeing as they are the people who manage this process, not Army.ca.

You applied to the CF "online", did you not bother to read what was on their website?

Mr Gittens

You need to worry less about every little thing, and READ MORE in the older threads here while POSTING LESS until you have done some homework - which includes the Forces.ca website, as DAA just pointed out.

There is a SIXTEEN-PAGE thread entitled "Interview advice (merged)" here. It is even STICKIED so that you do not have to look very hard to find it. I have just merged your thread into that one.

If you cannot be bothered to make even minimal effort on your part, then nobody else is likely to make any effort either.

If, however, you have made a genuine and honest effort to locate answers to questions and cannot find any, we will be glad to help.

You will not be coddled should you be accepted into the CF. You will either perform to the expected standard, or be left behind. You may as well get used to that now.

Asked and answered in Ask a CAF Recruiter. Adding for reference,

Question about the interview
http://milnet.ca/forums/threads/123203/post-1438099/topicseen.html#new
"I have my medical/interview tomorrow, and I have a huge debate in my head regarding my beard. I am wondering if just keeping it neat and tidy is acceptable for the interview or if I should shave my beard off entirely."

If I have my interview and medical on the same day, do I wear a suit or a t-shirt and shorts (which is recommended for the medical)?

Suit/business attire for the interview, and t-shirt/shorts for the medical. You will be given a chance to change.
