I graduated from Food Science in University of Manitoba over one year ago, and I worked as a QC tech in a food company for one year and that's my first job

Yes, I did all those, but I'm not sure about your case, since we are not in same province. You can just email them to see what's going on

I got the rejection notice too. I thought I'd at least qualify for EG-02. What was the pass mark? I wrote the SEI in March.
Did u write all three tests?

Yes. I wrote the last March 6th.

I would be very, very surprised if they get back to you. Government job processes ignore routine inquiries like that. They find them annoying.

I got placed into the pool on Monday for tests I finished in march. Today I received this:
As a follow up to the notice that you received yesterday, please note
that communication (oral and written) has not yet been assessed. As a
result, these elements must be evaluated prior to being considered fully
qualified for a specific level and eligible for appointment. It is
expected that these elements will be assessed during a right fit
interview when you are being considered for a specific position. We
apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Thus explains the tests you had to write before your interview, chicagoglobetrotter.

ok remember my comments about my interview few weeks ago. For a EG4 position in a francophone area where they request me full writing and oral competences instead I requested in my application English evaluation. Well here is the answer, this email give the rights that the board interview could assessed you again.

I used the form on "contact us" page of their website to ask them about the OVT this week. I got a reply saying that my request has been forwarded to the respective department. I still wish I knew if it was because I didnt do well enough on the SEI or some other reason !!!!

I am currently a CFIA employee. Going through the tests right now as well. Two inspectors that I know of have written SEI last week and haven't heard anything about OVT this week.
