View Full Version : What kind of life experience?
08-18-2006, 07:26 PM
I might sound abit nieve when I ask, What kind of life experience(s) are they (RCMP) referring too? I work in a hospital as a care aide and I am also on the code white team or ERT (emergency response team) I go everywhere in the hospital to deal with violent people that are at risk for harming themselves and or others. I'm used to helping and caring for people of all ages and seeing a deceased person doesn't bother me as much as it did when I first started. I'll be 30 in Sept.14, I'm married and have a kid. I must sound rediculous I know but I'm not the type to leave things to chance. Please let me know. I have a group on http://groups.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=groups.groupProfile&groupID=103661043
just copy and paste. I'm trying to get real RCMP/Auxillary members or people like us who are trying out for the force to join and share stories and topics. Please feel free to join my group. Thanks

HEY MAN, I MADE IT TO INTERVIEW AND POLY STAGE AND GOT CUT DUE TO PAST ERRORS. BASICALLY THEY WANT PEOPLE WITH A CLEAN LIFE STYLE. THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE SOME ONE WHO GOES AND GETS DRUNK AND IN FIGHTS AT BARS, WATCH WHO U HANG WITH, STUFF LIKE THAT. IF YOU LIVE A CLEAN LIFE SOLID WORK HISTORY WITH NO MISSED TIME WITHOUT A GOOD REASON, THINGS LIKE THIS IS WHAT THEY WANT. SOME ONE WHO GIVES BACK TO COMMUNITY SUCH AS VOLUNTEER WORK. EDUCATION IS ALWAYS GOOD. MY COUSIN IS RCMP AND HE SAID A WELL ROUNDED PERSON IS THE TERM HE USED. I SAW MY ERRORS AND WORKING ON BETTERING MYSELF. READ THESE POST AND YOU WILL LEAR LOTS. AGE IS NOT A FACTOR ANYMORE. HOPE THIS HELPS

I think that when people are told the reason they havent passed the interview was because of life experiences is simply because they arent prepared for the interview. I believe that most of the time people have the life experiences they are looking for but havent done there homework in finding good examples so that when interview time comes they cant come up with good ones. My advice to anyone is to find at least one if not two examples of all the 35 compitencies outlined on the RCMP web page.

Just a quick thanks for your replys. I've done volunteer work for the jr.A hockey team here in town doing security and playing music, also did some assistant coaching for a bantam team. I like to help where and when I can, it's just my nature, I've never been in a real fist fight, I've always used my head to get me ouuta crap. Thanks again everyone for your input. keep em coming.
