I applied back in October for PSE within 1 week I was invited to do my postal test in one of their locations, after I didn’t hear nothing until January for my interview and now it’s february and got email to do background, drug testing and conditional job offer no it’s still a waiting game.

I took the previous assessment test, passed, then took the exam, passed, filled out an application which was acknowledged so how long before someone actually contacts me?

I have been in the offer phase ext. For a few years now. Which is totally ridiculous. I have sent emails to different people for a update no response.

I got called for a interview in September, did fingerprints there , I was told to wait a week. I waited and nothing changed. November 30th I got a email to accept/decline, drug test, background test. Did everything just waiting again and hopefully it doesn't take long.

I applied for a ARC position on 10/29, I received a background consent 2 days later, days after that I received a interview notice for 11/7, 2 days after that I received offer letter, 2nd background screening and drug test... I take drug test Monday and hopefully will start working within the next 2 weeks. The whole process has been quick and hassle free.

I did two background checks. Both a month a part. After the second, it took another month before they gave me an orientation date. But, I contacted the man who interviewed me which brought my files to their attention. From application and interview to start date, it took 5 months. Everyone has said the same thing about their process.

Ridiculously long process in time where labor is in short supply. I applied, taken the test and scored very high, drug test, background check, received offer letter, accepted offer on time, etc.,and I wait and wait. Two months now and no info. I went in and asked, they said to wait. Until when? Crazy!

I’m currently in Offer phase EXT

I received a email on Oct 10th for interview PSE Mail Clerk on Oct 16th then that same week.
On Oct 18th I received 5 emails
1st Accept / Decline job offer
2nd Conditional Job Offer
3rd & 5th Drug Test Scheduled
4th Background Check
I finished all these on my computer that same day until the following morning because it was a lot of things to fill out.
The same day I finished all these I went and did the drug test which is a walk in clinic. They said I have to wait 3-5 business days. So I won’t be getting results until this Wednesday or Thursday 🙏🏽
Hope this helped anyone out
