Thanks for your info.fishscale4sale wrote: ↑Feb 28th, 2012 1:41 pmI was hired for the 'central' area; the boundaries are something like East of Jane st and West of Victoria Park I think. I've worked at 10-12 different stations within that area.
I believe that 'central' only applies to the calling list for temps (for regular LCs there's only East and West I think?). Most of my classmates were 'central' too, a few were 'west' and they lived in Mississauga. Maybe the central area is divided into east and west by Yonge st for regular LCs?

I am going to be doing my General Abilities Test (GAT) tomorrow at the Calgary 1100 49th Ave NE depot.
Is it true that I won't be able to "prepare" for anything specific other than to rely on the mathematic and memory skills I already have?
Also, my position is the Mail Courier Service (MCS) and was wondering if I will eventually have to do a physical?
In addition, from what I've read from this thread is that the MCS's are getting phased out* (which doesn't make sense to me)...so why are they hiring?
*Can someone elaborate on this?

I was the opposite. I blanked when I turned the page to the questions in the first part and guessed most of them. Second one I nailed, as I used word association and it worked perfectly. Really thought I'd failed the whole thing coz of the first part of this, but I passed.
IV: Address Grid Memory
This was brutal. I felt I failed this part. There's 4 columns (e.g. A B C D). Underneath those columns are 5 addresses. You'll have 5 mins to memorize them and their positions, and then 4 mins to answers the questions. You'll do two sections like this.
Tip: What can I say? Brutal. My mind went blank almost. I'm pretty sure I may have failed the second set of addresses.
FYI, it's MSC ( Mail Service Courier).Other info:
My position was MCS

What did it entail?...Yes, MSC's are going to be phased out. I've got no idea either what that means for me ( or you ) Guess we'll find out. Anyone else know?
