WSIB Hiring Process - Eligibility Adjudicator

I applied to London posting in the last week of December 2011.
I was wondering if anyone knew how long the hiring process is? And if any is currently in the role, what is the position really like? Are there opportunities for advancement?

Some people are selected to write an exam (which is rather difficult), then a few are selected for the interview. I applied to the same position as you and haven't heard anything back.

I've been an employee there for two years now. Normally it's a typing test, "work sample" which depends on the position and an interview component. In my experience there the nepotism has been quite bad so if you're expecting advancement opportunities based on merit I'd advise you to look elsewhere.

I have applied for the Eligibility Adjudicator position on 3 or maybe 4 different occasions in the past two years or so. I finally got invited to participate in a competition (another city in Ontario) several months after I applied. My suggestion to you would be to wait a bit. At the same time, if you look on the WSIB web site and see the posting again, APPLY again. I made it through the exam process (not too difficult but can be very tricky),wrote a 2 page essay style assignment, and was invited for a rather lengthy interview over 2 hours long but a challenge I actually enjoyed. I was placed on a wait list of qualified external candidates and I've been waiting for about 2 months to get 'placed' but being on the list is NOT a guarantee I'll ever get placed. My suggestions to you is keep trying but they still may screen you in months after you applied. In summary I last applied in March, 2011, got asked to write an exam in SEPTEMBER, 2011 and was interviewed in late October, 2011 and advised in January 2012 that I passed the process. This will take a lot longer than you would like...............I'm still waiting to be placed (if that ever happens, but I REALLY WANT THIS JOB!)

Good luck

can confirm this is the process, takes a while to get hired, and even after u get hired, you go through 20 weeks of training, and need to pass

Thank you for the feedback. I was wondering if you could tell me if the 20 weeks training is 'difficult' and do most people pass the training? I am asking because I would have to quit my current job in order to pursue the WSIB adjudicator job. I'm wondering if it's worth the risk. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

thanks

sorry for late reply

training is not hard and everybody passing the training, its the on the job portion that give people problems. its a peronsality thing and they cant test it until u are actaully on the job. depends if you can multi task and work well under pressure.

once you are in though, the job is worth it

Thank you for the feedback. I really appreciate it. I'm still on 'the list' and waiting patiently to get the call from them to start training. I have in excess of 10 years experience in case management as a caseworker and i excel in high pressure jobs that require advanced multi tasking skills so by all accounts it's exactly what I'm looking for.

What position are you applying for? It sounds to me as if you are doing the Payment Specialist exam if you are required to bring a calculator. For the Eligibility Adjudicator exam we were not required to bring a calculator. It was a multiple choice logic type of exam and it was tricky. Can't really recall what the questions were like. It's not something you can study for. I also wrote the Payment Specialist exam where I was required to bring a calculator and I found the exam extremely difficult. If it's the same one then know your fractions really well. My interview for the adjudicator job actually lasted 3 hours exactly. It was very grueling and the later half of the interview required the completion of another test. It takes forever to get hired even after you pass.
did u end up getting hired? i haven't seen a new class of EAs in toronto since may i dont think

Hi Electricute, thanks for asking but unfortunately the answer is no, I have not been offered a position yet. To be honest I'm on the list for the Ottawa office (says I live in Toronto on my profile but I moved to Ottawa a couple of years ago). I emailed HR recently and they assured me I'm still on the list. Did Toronto hire any EA's this year? Should I just give up? I really want this job. Not sure what else I can do but wait or like I said, give up and move on. Are you an EA if you don't mind me asking?
yes, and havent really hired since april, dont think they plan on until maybe sometime next year
