I had my panel interview about 4 weeks. I was told they'd get in touch with me in 3 weeks with a response. So at this point, would it be a good guess to say I am not being considered? Anyone else that went through an interview who might have a clue? Like if you had an interview, did they still contact you way later to give you an offer?
hi,
I was also contacted after 4 weeks...I made into the pool.

Hi Peeps in the pool,

One of you might be called soon to replace me in the November class. I have decided to decline their offer for a lesser paying role with the Treasury Board Secretariat. It is less stressful, has more transferable skills, offers more autonomy and honestly more growth opportunities as wsib seems to funnel growth in a more narrow direction (with a final destination). Although I will make about 8 grand less a year throughout all the raises, I think I will be happier. It's also permanent without a probationary period.

If you anyone has any questions regarding my recruitment experience, private message me.

Regards,

Joey
Good luck!

Sounds like you made a good decision based on your interests and circumstances. The EA role isn't glamorous, is rigid and structured, and doesn't prepare you for many roles outside of insurance claim adjudication or disability management, but provides job security and a solid salary, benefits and a pension. I agree that it sort of pigeon holes you to an end destination with the WSIB...not an exciting career path but a safe one that's well paying (albeit admittedly slightly boring). Again, it's not for everyone...

I was a little concerned with the probationary period risk as well. It wasn't a deciding factor though.

I feel bad for the people that had it harder than me to get in the pool. The people that had a work sample... I just wrote a test and a mini essay (2 paragraphs) and I must have killed the STAR interview technique.

Congrats on the job at TBS! Were you already offered the November training class? I was entered into the pool Aug 25th. My reference was contacted about 3 days after the in person interview and I found out I made the pool about a week after the interview. The process moved very quickly from my experience. But I'm wondering if people have already been offered a Nov start date?

I work for the federal govt so I had a stable job; so I'm not worried or stressed out. But definitely still curious about when they will pull from the pool? Smiling Face With Open Mouth

They called my reference on the same day as the interview ;-). I was offered the position last Friday after about 15 days in the pool. Total process for me took 30 days or so. I feel terrible for the people waiting a year or so. November 6th is the start date.

The people waiting are usually in the smaller cities where the number of EA's is not so high. I was told all through the process that there were no vacancies at the time and the pool is anticipatory so I knew it would be a (long) wait.

Yes I emailed the lady from HR who called and emailed me to book my interview to ask about the status of my application, but she never responded. Do you know if there is anyone I should contact? It's really hard to get hold of anyone in HR at WSIB, and the HR lady who emailed me was basically the only contact I have.

has anybody else recently made it into the pool? seems like now they are just filling up the pool with no external training sessions apart from the November 6th. I know there is a November 24th training session internal, but that's about it.
