For entry-level commissionaire jobs, the whole process including training can take up to a month. You apply online and then they contact you to schedule an interview with a questionnaire and a test (the interview can take place by video). You'll need to do a criminal record check, get fingerprints and they'll process your security clearance. After that, they run about two training courses a month, which are a week and a half long (some of which can be done online), so you'll have to wait for the next course. Once you finish your training, you'll probably get posted to the short-term call-up detail unless there's a specific full-time gap in your area. After you've been doing full-time call-up work at different sites for a little while, you'll eventually get assigned to a permanent site.

If you're responding to a management-level job competition, it can take a bit longer because the job needs to be advertised for a couple of weeks. Things go pretty quickly once the ad period is over though.

Desperate to hire anyone they no longer hire just military. Once you are accepted you are hired and attend 2 weeks of unpaid employment (training). Some candidates are paid when they attend this training, however the application of being paid while attending training is not consistent. Anyone that is not a veteran should not expect to get employed at the higher paying government sites as those positions are reserved for veterans. It took almost two months to hire me from the time of the first interview, followed up by two more interviews.

You put in an application at the office nearest to you...priority is given to Military/RCMP veterans first and then non military (Civilian) personnel afterward if there are not enough retired military members to fill the vacancy(s).
