How long have you been working? Do you have a permanent position ? Seems like CP only hires temp-permanent.

Almost a year and a half and I haven't wanted permanent. Everyone's situation is different. Others from my class became perm FT in less than a year. I don't see myself ever doing LC FT. It's extremely demanding and they don't pay me enough for what's expected. Dealt with my share of bs early on as a LC. I recently put in a request for PO4 so I'm just waiting on my transfer to the plant. All the best!

I applied for LC supervisor so I guess it’s totally different, the wait for FT etc.

I passed the physical yesterday and awaiting a call/offer. Do they send the offer by xpresspost still or just email.

Not sure if this has been posted but if you are re-applying then a passed physical is good for 6 months and the successful interview is good for 1 year.

Is there a vote or something soon? I heard a co-worker mention something but didn't get much info.

Buddy of mine got called today to come for the interview and physical at Eastern on Thursday. Do they now do them at the same place?

I'm tried to persuade him not to apply :)

Not sure if the process has changed recently or what not, but during my time, the physical test was done at a CBI Health location.

As a friend, why would you persuade not to apply?

I received neither of those. HR called me directly to come in to sign the offer papers.

Oh ok, thanks. Looking back through the thread it seems it's either an email or phone call now. I'm just anxious to hear back.

-Toxic work environment
-Underpaid for what your expected to do

I am not voting at all. In all previous meetings I went to, the union doesn't care what the membership wants, only what the executive decides is in "union" goals. I have also learned the membership, despite speaking up in these meetings, still vote to accept whatever the union hands them, because they can't scratch two nickels together and can't afford to strike....
Sometimes the truth hurts. The other times it hurts worse....

Well if he's employed elsewhere working in a better environment and higher salary then tell him to stick with that. But if he's unemployed then I'd say give him the opportunity to try it out.
