Processing times vary person by person.  You may not score high on the CFAT or TSD, you may not do well on the Interview, you could have medical issues I don't know about, there could be issues with your Security Clearance: for all of these reasons a recruiter won't tell you how long your application will take.  If you're wanting to get into the Regular Force though it is VERY rare for anyone to get in prior to 6 months from their application date.
Bummer I was expecting to get in quick just kind of got anticipation building up, but anyway the wait will give me more time to get in better shape!
Thanks

For AVN Tech there are approx. 50% of the positions remaining as of today's date.

Hey Buck,

Can I bug you for the numbers for Comm Rsrch Op? Im confused because the Hamilton CFRC Det Commander was away on course so my file has been sitting on their desk for almost 2 months now waiting to get merit listed, yet I see people getting offers from the very same CFRC? Not sure if there are multiple Det Commanders...? Getting pretty frustrated.
The military isn't really like a James Bond movie where you go for jet training in the morning and then underwater demolitions after lunch.

I received a "approved for further processing" email after having my file "on hold" for AEC. I will be getting my interview and medical soon.

Would they be looking at my file for the next years intake or this year?

Hi Buck,

Are remaining DEO positions filled out at the end of the year or are they just readjusted for the following year.

Thanks!

Approx 33% of the positions remain open.  I would verify what is sitting with the det Commander; without seeing your file I can't state with 100% certainty, however I would hazard to guess that it's your Reliability Screening that is waiting for the det Commander.  The det Commander is the only person with the authority within each CFRC to sign them.  If the other people already have that completed and were on the Competition List that is why they're getting offers.  There are not multiple det Commanders; each detachment has 1 det Commander - during the months of Sept/Oct the det Commanders have been quite busy due to courses and a Commanders Conference.

Yes.  So with where we are in the year they're still processing intake for 2017/2018 - however with how late it is in the year your file may not make it to Competition until the 2018/2019 recruiting year.

In my years of working within Recruiting I don't think I've seen a year where there where unfilled DEO positions by the end of the year; and they didn't do a mass fill. Right now the delay in selecting DEO's is that there are only so many BMOQ positions, so selections are occurring based on priority hiring (i.e. only those with the highest scores are being selected right now).

Thank you again Buck!
Just a follow-up question;  when does 2017/18 end and 18/19 begin. I'm assuming when 2017/18 positions are filled. I'm just hoping to receive a close estimate as to where I may be situated in the selection periods.

Hi Everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone has any information on the amount of DEO MARS positions left for this selection period. I am currently on the National Competition List and have been there for some time with out any change in my status.

Thanks

Hi Simply,

The last update I received from my recruiting centre in late September was that 32 of 50 spots remain open for DEO MARS for this fiscal year. No change in the numbers since May according to my recruiting centre. I've seen posts from 6 or 7 others awaiting MARS selection, myself included, during this time. All we can do is be patient. Best of luck going forward.

Weapons Tech is closed for the year.  Normally Recruiting gets it's new numbers in late December/early January and starts processing by end January/early February (depending on occupation/entry plan).

Just a follow-up question;  when does 2017/18 end and 18/19 begin. I'm assuming when 2017/18 positions are filled. I'm just hoping to receive a close estimate as to where I may be situated in the selection periods.

The Canadian Armed Forces operates on the Fiscal Year, the same as the Federal Government, so 2017/2018 ends on 31-Mar-18 and 2018/2019 starts on 1-Apr-18.  Someone could be picked in February though for 2018/2019 but their enrollment date wouldn't be until after 1-April-18

Hey Buck,

Just a quick question.

I recently got on the comp list on the first week of October. Would you currently know how many open slots are available for FSA and based on your comment from one of your answer below, does that mean the next job offer rounds are going to happen in late December/ early January?


"Normally Recruiting gets it's new numbers in late December/early January and starts processing by end January/early February (depending on occupation/entry plan)." ---> One of your answers.

Thanks :-)

I'm not aware of a selection that occured on 16 Oct for NCM's.  With that said there are approx 20% of steward positions remaining as of today's date.  Please note that when you receive a 'projected' selection date from the CFRC (or anyone else) this is purely a projected date and the selection can be moved or cancelled for a multitude of reasons. When selections do occur you should wait 1-2 weeks from the selection date to be informed.  The selection date is the day that the selection board sits and picks who will receive an offer; there is still a massive amount of work to occur between that stage and when the applicant is actually given their offer.

Almost 40% of the FSA positions are still open as of today's date.  The statement that you've quoted is in relation to next year's numbers (i.e. when a occupation reaches 0 remaining, when do the numbers come out for the next year); not in relation to occupations that still have openings for this year.

Cheers,
Buck
