The hiring manager will determine whether members of the public will be reimbursed for expenses. These decisions are made on a case by case basis. The hiring manager must balance the need to hire the best candidate with the need to make sound financial decisions. If you are contacted to participate in the selection process you can clarify your eligibility of reimbursement for travel expenses with the Hiring Manager.
Absolutely not. One of the advantages of working in the Public Service is that we are a large organisation where employees can move and develop their careers across many ministries. For example, you may begin a career in communications in one ministry and later work for another ministry in a different operational role, such as managing a government program. People who are interested in career mobility can move within and between career fields.

If an officer closes his/her checking account and does not notify the Payroll Unit the officers' salary will continue to be deposited into that account. If this happens,  the officer must wait until the financial institution returns the money back to the Treasury Department which can take up to 2-4 business days. Once the Treasury Department is notified that the monies have been returned, a cheque may be issued to the officer.

No records of visits or counseling sessions will be placed on the officers' personal file. In circumstances where the counselor believes an officer may pose a risk to him/herself or others, or if the court mandates it, our counselors are required to report the situation to the relevant authorities.

Yes. Signing your appraisal form indicates that you have reviewed the appraisal form and discussed it with your supervisor not that you agree or accept it. If you disagree with your rating, the first thing you do is discuss the matter with your appraiser (supervisor). Explain your objections clearly and provide evidence to support your position. If you and your appraiser are unable to reach an agreement you should inform the Department of Human Resources of your objections. You can do this by making a note on your objections under the Employee Comments section of the appraisal form. The matter will then be reviewed by the Performance Management Unit.

You will be interviewed by a panel of people. Panel interviews are efficient, and support a fair and transparent recruitment process. Conducting one interview allows the candidate to be assessed for the position by more than one person at a time and requires the candidate to answer one set of questions. Panel interviews also allow for all candidates to be given the same time and respect by the same interviewers. The interviewers usually include the manager who has a job opening in his or her department, a human resources representative and one other person.
