Hey Fingers Crossed, I'm not sure that this thread is replied to that much anymore. I seem to be the most active on this forum lately but that won't help you because I have no idea about Winnipeg. Rumor is that there may be training in Vancouver towards the end of the year and again in the new year. I've also heard that Winnipeg is in need of new controllers badly but without someone speaking up who works there, I wouldn't give rumors much credence.
I just had my first interview on the weekend and the light is green now but no yellow light for the second interview or call yet. I think this is good since the light didn't go red but will patiently wait for a phone call to set up the second interview, which may not be for another couple months. Anyone have any experience with the process and whether the green light means I am going to proceed to the next step or if it just indicates I phoned in and went through the interview? The site does also indicate I should send in my documentation now so I'll get it all sent off in the next week and make sure I keep my phone handy.
Also, was wondering if anyone else from the June assessment in Vancouver is checking in and at the same point in the process. Would be good to see how many of us are active on this forum.
Until the next update...
The green light means you successfully passed the first interview. This does NOT guarantee a call for the 2nd interview. It means you were placed in the 2nd interview candidate pool, and are eligible for a call. You will be compared against others who have qualified for the 2nd interview when they go through that process. So if hypothetically they decide to interview 10 people in a round, and there are 20 people in the qualified pool, they tend to interview the 10 "most qualified" applicants.
Despite this, from what I've heard, most people who green light from the first interview do eventually get a call for the second interview. You have eighteen months to receive a call before your application expires and you need to start over (if you're still interested at that point).
