Like Parm485, received offer last week for a 7 month contract.
Congratulations!
For GST audit in Surrey, right?
May I ask if you have got your CPA yet?
Thanks.

Thanks! I'm not sure since I haven't received the official paperwork yet (accepted over phone) but from the call I was told they are hiring for GST and income tax. Pretty far away from my CPA, just finishing up CPA PREP.

I see.
I guess having a CPA in my case didn't help much.
They probably wont offer again until towards end of March.

I'm placed in the SP04 pool just for 2 months when security clearance takes more than 3 months, can somebody explain why they make the pool for 2 months only?
Security clearance doesnt take more than 3 months lol. Thats if everythings done by paper. We use electronic at the cra and rcmp takes 2-3 weeks at max likely.

I am not sure what you are talking about. Maybe you had a different type of clearance. But I did everything including fingerprints and it did not take that long.

You probably have been mistaken for the delay in the cra updating system or are mistaken for the length of the processing of the cra from when you get interviewed to hired.

It DOES NOT take that long. Being placed in a pool, usually requires security to be cleared first anyhow.

What takes 3 months is usually the date from closing till when you can expect to get hired.


Thanks
Well, I'm referring to the security clearance. I didn't get any feedback until somehow an offer was made after 3 months from a second pool I was placed for me to know. I asked the manager and he told me he wouldn't make offer if the clearance isn't good. That was in the 4th month. That's why I guessed it took exactly 3 months as it was paper forms I completed and submitted.

Interesting. If you did fingerprints at the cra, it is electronic. They just copy your papers and send them eletronically. Managers might say that, just as a reason but may not be the specific reason.

Also you said you had an exam right? And couldnt accept due to it? If you get an offer next time, talk to them more about it. They usually accomdate it. They did for me! Goodluck.

I actually called the manager later but he said he had given out the offer and that I actually have to be around during the entire training period and my exam was 3 days. That means perhaps no accommodation.

Has anyone been contacted regarding a pool for the SP05 application in Surrey / Vancouver back in July?

My timeline so far:
Early July: applied
Late July: assessment done
Mid August: interviewed and fingerprinted
Edit: late August, received offer, 7 month contract

References have not yet been contacted. Would appreciate any insight!

Hello, Just wondering if anyone applied for SP-03 in Winnipeg around august 2017 for night shifts?
I have been reading this forum and found out that it takes time to get an offer. Anyhow my application is still in process and they just call my reference on Sept 19.
They also have sent me a questionnaire to when I would be able to start tentative date Sept 18 or sept 25. Just wondering if anyone got an offer before the sept 18 start date?

I applied same as you last Aug 2017. I got a call from them last Sept 19 asking for SIN and DOB. Also, they asked me if I can start on Monday, Sept 25 and they just needed result from my criminal records check then they can make the offer. They said they will call within the week. I wonder if they dont have the criminals records result by Friday are we placed on the next pool? Or they will start another batch which would start in October?
