Wow, sorry I misread that question. No one can tell you how long it will be before your interview or medical as it is dependent on many factors.
lCS said:Good day everyone,
This question goes out to all those who have taken the TSD (psych test). I am just wondering how long it was before you got your interview and medical. Do you have your mini interview right after the test and then the medical later that week or did you get scheduled late. Thank you.
Sharp said:I did mine on the 5th of March. My biggest guess (alongside information from the CFRC) would be that they'll *EMAIL* you *MOST LIKELY* within 2 weeks to 3 months.
It's random, it's unexpected, but not too far away.
I was told that I'll get an email for interview/medical sometime in either the end of March, anywhere in April, or any time in May.
I somewhat doubt that it'll drag on to summer-fall. But it could happen. I don't work there, I don't know.
DAA said:Consider yourself lucky. It seems that your CFRC has "committed" themselves to a timeline for your processing. It's not often that you can actually nail them down to such a commitment of this nature.
lCS said:Thanks a lot! Let me know when they call you. Are you out of Ottawa?
FAL said:I admit it. i have given in to the temptation to ask this:
"psst: So, do you have a cheat sheet with the right answers?" ;D

DAA said:Well that was an interesting read. But I have to correct you on two points which you have made above and are as follows:
a. "Another flaw with the TSD and the system behind it is that studies show that personality tests don't correlate with skills/skill potential." Not entiirely correct. It is the CFAT which is used to determine your "skills potential", that's why it's called an "Aptitude" test; and
b. "You can't rewrite the TSD for 5 years so they used my TSD from before." Absolutely NOT true. The truth is, the TSD is a "one-time" test and CANNOT be rewritten.
Other than that, reasonably good advice!

G.R-B said:Having answered a lot of these recently for student jobs from big employers (Call centers, hotels, etc.) I have the worst opinion of this type of test. You can often smell what answer they are hoping for, yet the question still makes no sense whatsoever. As an example, I was once asked "Is it normal for someone to give an average performance?". Well, what they want is no, people should always give their best. But isn't the definition of Normal to be in a range close to the Average? "Someone" should be working harder than the rest, but then, should the rest also be working harder than the rest? Is the question asking if it's Okay to work just average? Or is it asking if you think people are doing it? So, my honest answer would be "I find normal for an employer to have high standards regarding its employees, and for the employees' performance to attain or surpass the standards." but I can answer Yes or No... The 45 minutes questionnaire was chuck full of things like that :threat:
Hopefully the CF TSD is better than the other ones.
My CFAT is Thursday, so I'll have a better impression after that.
