Border Services Officer (Former Employee), Thunder Bay, ON – April 8, 2013
Typical day has a BSO (Border Services Officer) saw me doing Primary assessments for part of the day and processing travelers that require to pay taxes on goods they are bringing back in to the country where applicable.
Management was fairly good, although there were some issues.
The long hours were a hard part of the job. Overnight shifts were not – more... easy either.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the outdoors aspect of it. Conducting secondary assessments, as I worked there during the summer. – less
applied (Former Employee), canada – February 26, 2013
Hi all, I was wondering whats the hiring process time for CBSA and is the fitness test for CBSA officers as hard as becoming a police in Ontario? I applied with them back in 2006 and finally heard back in march of 2012 saying I was selected, however I haven't heard back at all. I decided to call them today and was told that my application from the old – more... process is no longer good I need to submit a new to due to change of hiring rules. I am also currently enrolled at Trios completing the Police foundation course and have completed my firearms and CPR. So I again submitted a new app. Whats my wait time like before I hear back. I truly want this job its a dream job for me ever since my childhood. any feedback will help. Thanks, kay. – less
