A wonderful place to work. I would highly recommend working at the RCMP to anyone. I worked as a consultant, and hope to go back as a full time employee one day.

Back up on the way. They’ll be there in 45 minutes
Constable (Former Employee) –  Saskatchewan20 July 2019
I loved my 10 years with the Mounties. It was an exciting and interesting career. However. Understand now that you will work alone most of the time and your backup will be 45 minutes out or in bed trying to catch up on sleep. Management still thinks it’s the 1800’s and only one guy is needed to hold the west. It’s unsafe and unchanging. You’ll be looked down upon if you try to inflict change or refuse unsafe work.

However, they just unionized... so we shall see if that helps.
Pros
Great pay and job security
Cons
Unsafe working conditions with inadequate man power

Currently employed GD Cst -E Division (bc)
GD constable (Current Employee) –  Bc13 June 2019
In a word.... horrendous! If your considering policing anywhere in Canada, run the other way and forget about this organization. In every way there is little future promise this wobbling upside down pyramid will survive.
The draconian, antiquated, 19 th century style of policing in the modern age is unsustainable. It's currently imploding as I write this. Staffing anemic at best, and getting worse.... If it were possible. Working for this force has taught me, from the inside out, how a 150 year old entity can perfect a Ponzi scheme so massive you wouldn't believe it till your on the inside. Management are fabulously overpaid, disconnected, slugs reaping the rewards of a desperately abused but talented work force. As was already said, the public has no idea what they are getting for the money they pay. Surrey is an example of a city that saw the light and acted swiftly. Every municipality needs to pay attention!!The emperor has no clothes folks!
The only salvation for the good people who slave everyday and risk their lives and sanity to serve the public in this entity, is the promise of one day watching it crumble to the ground. A complete overhaul and re-build is critical.... If not then complete dissolution. Working conditions are not just terrible they are extremely dangerous... Walmart style policing is what they are feeding the public, but folks are too foolish to pause and take notice. They are decades behind in efficiency and modernization, and have long passed the opportunities to change this. Managers and officers out number boots on the ground by a minimum of 2/1
  more... and this is insane. Trust me when I tell you working for this tyrant will shave years off your life... Sadly I regret spending a decade of my life investing in the faint hope it would change. They sell the skin of the truth stuffed with a lie...Do YOUR RESEARCH don't fall for the smoke and mirrors it's not what you think!
Only a fool would join this outfit in 2019...
Do your homework you'll see.

If you are people oriented and enjoy a dynamic work atmosphere then the RCMP may be a good career choice for you.
Police Officer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON2 June 2019
A career with the RCMP is exactly what you make of it. The force offers a wide variety of positions and specialties. Finding your niche is up to you. Regardless of your career path within the force you will always be a part of something significant. You can take pride in knowing you contributed to your counties safety and security.

Nurse (Current Employee) –  Surrey, BC21 May 2019
Chronic staffing issues has left us with an unrealistic case load of +120 files. Dealing with unhappy members who were off sick for months without contact was a regular occurrence. Coming back from any time off was stressful because there was nobody really covering for you while you were off.

Low pay (less than what the nurses make provincially), and the benefits are horrible. The Indeed information stating that nurses make $150k is incorrect; I believe that is the pay for the doctors. On top of that, the Phoenix system is a nightmare - incorrect pay, missing retroactive payments and pay increases, the pay stubs are hard to understand that you have no idea if you're even getting paid correctly or not. Vacation accrual is dismal.

They are supposed to pay for your nursing license, but if the manager doesn't like you, you won't get reimbursed, despite this being a part of the collective agreement. Educational funding is also a joke and will barely cover anything.

Bullying is commonplace within this company. I have never been at a company where there is such multi level apathy towards bullying.
Pros
Flexible work hours
Cons
Everything else - pay, benefits, work environment, work load

A Career Like No Other
CR-05 (Current Employee) –  Regina, SK8 April 2019
Work is rewarding and interesting. Non-operational units are very different from operational units where time is of the essence. The para-military culture is imposed on public servants.
Pros
Free Parking
Cons
Phoenix Pay System

Previous Telecoms Operator
Telecommunications Operator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB31 March 2019
Little to no support from management, pay not nearly enough for what you deal with, toxic environment with no mental health supports. Critically understaffed and you are called to work overtime every day you are off, management favouritism towards certain people leading to lots of resentment. Backstabbing very common among people you thought were friends. Minimal chance for advancement. No raises after 5 years in unless the Treasury Board gives raises.
Pros
Massage chair....that’s it.
Cons
Christ. Where do I start.

Will rot your sole
Detachment Commander / Investigator (Former Employee) –  Manitoba10 February 2019
Hard work, great co workers, poor managers, most times only concerned with advancing their careers. More than willing to step over others in pursuit of same. Overall, RCMP does not really care for the well being of its rank and file.

it's a stressful, rewarding environment
Telecommunications Operator (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB23 January 2019
it's incredibly stressful, and can be overwhelming, but it is very rewarding. you learn something new every day and no day is the same as another. it can be very frustrating working with clients who want help but don't want to help you, but at the end of the day, it's worth it.
