hi,

good day, to all mercan applicants or have knowledge in twp.. i applied in mercan canada agency last May and they requested lot of documents including the embassy fee and pre-medical.. the documents were complete exactly JUNE 4 2012

position i am applying-
food counter attendant

my work experience-
service crew last 2005 (5 mos) end of contract
service crew last 2006 (3 mos) resigned
Office staff - 2010 - 2011 (5 mos)
manager in a fastfood april 2011 - present (15 mos) currently employed

i got all their qualifications except 18 mos working in a fastfood..
the 1st recruitment specialist said they will not credit my job experience last 2005 and 2006 as service crew, and other specialist told me that my past work expeirence will be credited, it means i am qualified for 18 months minimum requirements.

my questions:
1. Would Canada credit my past work experience?
then
2. if so, then how long will i wait for a employer or LMO
3. which would come first ??? an employer or LMO??


THANKS A LOT! Sorry guys for the questions, i am just not that familiar with the process to canada, but im trying to learn a lot from this site since yesterday! hope for your quick response !! :)

Syempre kung ako yung agency ayokong mapahiya yung agency ko sa employer.. At para sure visa.. Dami kasi na dedenied because lacking of experience. And not an expert. . Mahigpit sila sa experience. Gusto syempre sigurado sila sa applicant. At experienced applicant.

tama si xelsabado kasi kapag napangalanan na ang lmo at bumagsak sa wp nasasayangan ang agency ng lmo. sa hirap makapagpalabas ng lmo sinisiguro ng agency na walang nasasayang na lmo at sa dami ng pwedeng maging food counter attendant sa pinas, mas matatag na experience at kasalukuyang may trabaho mas sigurado para sa mga agency ang pagpasa ng wp.

kung direct hire naman mas di masyadong mabusisi sa dahilang walang agency na namamagitan. kung papano man napili nasa pagpasa na ng vo kung aprubado base sa mga sinumiteng papeles.

wag munang paguluhin ang isip mo sa job experience at di lang naman yan ang babasehan. ang pinaka tampok na makakakapasa ka sa wp ay makumbinsi ang vo na ang pagpunta mo sa canada ay di nangangahulugan na kapit tuko ka na dun at wala ka ng balak bumalik pa. yun ang bagay na binabantayan nila kung papano nila pagkakatiwalaan mga tfw na kung ano man kahihinatnan ng pagtratrabaho ay hindi lalabag na mag oover stay o mag ttnt.

Based on first hand experience from Mercan Canada, as far as i know, they are trusted by embassy in terms of recruiting/pooling QUALIFIED applicants. It means forwarding applicants to prospected clients who has exceeded minimum requirements. Of course the more work related experience to what position one's applying for, the more chance of GETTING AN EMPLOYER...but that doesn't stop there. Visa officers have patterns/set of questions to protect the interests of citizen in Canada. Meaning, you are not a liability to their government, you are not financially and medically demanding once you enter the country, and more. If you are under agency especially , under those trusted agencies like Mercan who is a well-renowned legal one, you are not going to burden errors/mistakes in complying with requirements needed because they scrutinize carefully the documents prior to applying for work permit.

to sheykivanuel,

makikitanong sa timeline mo...

bale ng nagpasa ka ng requirement july 2011 ng wala pang employer? bale manpower pooling pa lang na nakaready ka na anytime na magkaroon ka ng employer. nang magkaroon ka naman ng employer ngayong march 2012 at pumirma ka na ng job contract, work trv naman antay mo. so wala pang sked ng pag alis?...

suma magmula ng nag submit ka santaon ng ang tumatakbo....nabasa ko sa processing time in manila aabot ng 15mos bago maapproved. yun na ba yung magmula ng nagsubmit ka ng papers last year ay talagang aabot ng 15mos bago ka makakuha ng visa?...tama ba ang pagkaintindi ko ayon sa sinulat mo at pagdugtungin ko ano naman ang sinasabi sa cic site na 15mos. processing in manila?

magandang masagot at marami ang nakakabasa nito para magkaron din sila ng kaalaman pano tumatakbo ang proseso....salamat sa iyong nalalaman!

hi out makisagot lang sa timeline ng mercan, depende po sa employer kung ano ang qualifications na hinihingi nila. minsan yung edad, dpende ilang taon gulang na ang gusto nilang aplikante. yung timeline ko november ako nakakumpleto ng documents at bayad sa embassy.natawagan ako ng february 3rd week,para sa kontrata ..may lmo na ng march 2nd week. last week ng march yung m.r ko at kakatanggap lang ng visa nung june 19. di pa rin ako nakakaalis. pero polo nalang po ang hintay. ..
