Revenue canada exams

I have an exam this week for the Competency Based Organizational Questionnaire (CBOQ) and the Competency Based Behavioral Questionnaire(CBBQ) tests. I have no clue about what to expect/what to prepare. Anyone has any insights ?

Thanks in advance.

its a 45 minute exam.

Its situational judgment in the work force. Apparently they give you 3 scenarios and you choose what you would do in that scenario.

This test is to replace the wonderlic btw.

hope that helps.

anybody else written this exam? got this test next month, not really sure what to expect, and can't find any study material.

I am guessing the answer is B because it has 2 unique features, no antenna and 3 solid bars under the monitor. The other choices only have 1 unique element.

Damned if I know what this has to do with taxation, however. :confused:

did the testing a few months ago...
the test is all about logic....

they will tell you the skills you are being tested for, and you'll have some really vague questions and answers...

ie:
if you a member of a team, and extra work falls onto you... what would you?
(A) deal with it and do the work
(B) b|tch out the person who gave it to you
(C) complain to your manager
(D) pass it onto another co-worker...

its quetions like that..
if you're really out there in left field (like many of them people who live on the other side of the river), you will get the right answer.

the guys from the other side of the river, will get the interview, cuz they speak that language... us ontarioans do not..

Has anyone who applied for Taxpayer Services Agent heard back from CRA? Just wondering as I completed all the tests and interview and waiting on Wonderlic/Writing Skills test results and a final yes or no on the job.

The wonderlic takes about 4 weeks to grade. Did you write it with the group that wrote it earlier this evening?

As stated during the testing tonight, CRA has been conducting interviews previous and concurrently with the testing. If you haven't yet been called but got your 1 and 1* expect a call within the week for your interview. They will Phone first, then once they contact you and set a time you will be sent an e-mail.

They aren't making offers until Dec. apparently. They wanted to wait for all testing sections to be complete first.
