Excise Duty Officer (CRA)

I just got the invitation to write the tests for Excise Duty officer position. I was wondering if anyone else who has worked for this position can share their experiences regarding the testing procedure and general work experience.

Thanks.

same here, heard nothing. The excise tax people seem to be a lot more unresponsive as I send email/fax with no response.

when i went in for testing at TO North, there were very few applicants (~10) but the applications seemed qualified. I ran into 2 auditors and 2 others who had misc internal jobs.

Oh well... who knows what the deal is. More waiting.

Yes, i guess we have to wait and wait. I'll try contacting Susan Cardinal who called me to inform about the test dates.

Hopefully, we'll hear something in January...

Same thing happened with me. I got an acceptance email then it get recalled but after a while i got the original acceptance email again. I guess now we are in the placement stage. Btw, do you know if all the candidates who passed the test are placed into a pool or some candidates gets preference?
