Hey guys

I got an email saying I got a passing mark on the FEAST Exam, and am considered for further testing. No mention of when it may be or in what position on the list I’m on. Also mentioned that if I don’t hear back within 18 months of the FEAST date I can reapply.

My status on the workday site also has changed from assessment to interview.

How’d everybody do on the FEAST testing? Any word on when they might be holding the next 2 day boot camp in YWG?

My status changed to interview too after taking the assessment in Feb, but I'm in YYZ. Hoping to hear back after this batch of feast test is done. How much time were you waiting between the test and the invite?

I haven’t gotten an invite for an interview or two-day boot camp yet, but I did my FEAST in April and my stays changed to interview in June when I got a email saying a passed.

Just took the FEAST testing last week and received email saying I passed. Just wondering when they were planning on doing interviews/boot camp.

Btw didn't mean to crash a YWG post.

I originally took my FEAST test in April for anybody wondering.

Applied a couple months ago and did the feast this month as well. I booked the next stage of the interview, I'm curious to know how many people advanced. I would love to see my score.

Applied recently, did FEAST and now have the next phase for October. I really hope we get to see our scores, I'm very curious as to how I did. Clearly "good enough", but I wonder how I scored on the afternoon stuff compared to the group's mean. I can't imagine the majority made it through.

We never got to see our scores from FEAST or from the 2 day boot camp. They were never discussed. Just told us we did well enough to move to the next stage.

Some people got offers within 2 weeks of the boot camp with their preferred stream. And some got offers later. I feel like the people that got offers right away did better in the boot camp than others. That’s just my hunch.

From what I understand, it is two days filled with interviews and testing.

Just noticed on the Take Charge website that they’ve updated all the important dates information.
Winnipeg
We are hiring Air Traffic Controllers and Flight Service Specialists in Winnipeg. Our next courses begin in Fall 2020. Apply by January 31, 2020 to begin testing in a February 2020.
Does this mean that there are no Winnipeg courses starting until next fall or will there still be courses starting in the spring?

Looking forward to the boot camp! See you guys there.

Could be that they have a pool of candidates for spring training and any new candidates who apply now will start in the fall.
