but i'm wondering about the induction. do we really need to go for OBS, canoeing etc. if its just workshops or going around i'm fine. but OBS...... sounds very CCA-ish.

Yes, you have to go for the full OBS experience which includes camping (5days, 4 nights iirc).
Almost all my batch mates got sunburnt during canoeing... the induction camp was certainly no walk in the park.
Till today, I don't understand the rationale of going to OBS...it's true you develope camaraderie with your batch mates but of what use is that when all are from different CCs?

You probably won't get as much crap as CME compared to CM except for dealing with difficult residents at the front desk.
If **** happens, just call the duty manager for help, that's what the CMEs in my previous CC did.

Even if you get posted to a good CC, PA has this policy of rotating their staff across CCs so you won't stay in any CC for very long.

Initially, I was very happy working for PA too, brimming with enthusiasm and energy.
But that was the honeymoon period before the real nightmare began...

Wont stay in any CC for very long so maybe saying 5 years? Cos my friend have been with one CC for 3 going 4 years.

Well its always honeymoon period everywhere before **** starts. My current job was **** till 3 years into it too.

Damn... I saw the induction was at WestCoast I was hoping yay no OBS. Now Iím guessing there would be.

I share the same thoughts as you. Whats the pt if everyone is gna be posted to diff CCs but well I guess they put every staff in PA as one regardless of the different CCs being posted to.

OBS is compulsory as long as you recruited into PA or just for specific positions?

Just keep in mind "any other duties as assigned"..

basically if one can thrive in expecting the unexpected in daily work routine till retire, then this is the right career to consider.

OBS is no longer under PA so they dont do PA induction courses anymore.

Hi,

Does PA hire fresh local uni grads for CM?

And for those who have applied at the website, how long after applying did you get a call back to arrange for an interview?

Thank you!!
