Well, when my HR rep offered me the job she told me I'd start training April 18th in Tulsa, OK but if my bg and everything clears quickly she's going to send me to the April 4th one in Plano, TX. I'm not sure if it'd be the same everywhere or maybe there might be one near you on April 4th. I'm not quite sure. You could probably call your HR rep and find out.

Its looks that way. I got told this week I passed everything and that an on boarding person will contact me the week before my start date with training. Who did you speak to about training? A-lot of people said the background check took long but mines only took a week. I have been interviewing since Feb and the process of interviewing with diff managers took a long time.

My background check went extremely fast. I haven't heard anything else about training since my interview. I interviewed with two managers at one time and got hired. I start work before I go to training. You probably have to contact HR about training details.

I came across this forum and I'll be going to Plano,TX for training as well! Plano seems like a nice place. Although I hate going anywhere by myself, I think it'll be nice to get away and explare a new place a bit. Anywho, has anyone received an further details yet? I was just wondering.

What position did you get hired for? I was offered the Retail Sales Consultant job and I got the offer letter and instructions for the background check the same day via email and then the process was about a week for the background and drug test to be completed and officially be offered the job.

I was offered the Retail Sales Consultant job as well. I was thinking since it is Friday I probably won't hear anything until Tuesday or Wednesday. I was just curious about the whole process because I do currently work and am not sure what type of notice I should put in, i'm thinking i'll wait until I have more information though.

I didn't put my notice in until everything came back OK and they officially offered me the job and it only took a week for that to happen.

No, nothing yet. The HR gal said I would hear about a week before I go and I texted my soon to be manager at the store i'll be at and she said she usually doesn't get any info until the Thursday before I go, all I know is my travel date is scheduled for April 17th and i'm set for the April 18th class. I hate waiting.

I'll keep you posted! When did you get hired? Just trying to look at the time line to see from when you got hired until when you start is like when you got your offer letter before the background check and stuff. Just trying to see what I'm looking at 2-3 weeks a month?

I was offered the job on Friday March 18th and it took exactly one week for the background/drug screen to be completed, obviously everything was real easy for them to verify and background/drug screen came back good. I got a call from HR on Friday March 25th officially offering me the job and letting me know they had everything back and HR wanted to schedule me for the April 4th training class but I had to give my employer 2 week notice and told HR that class was too soon for me and she said that I would be set up for the April 18th class and would hear something from my store manager about a week before I go but haven't heard anything yet and doesn't sound like I will know anything until later this week... From reading on here some people have had to wait alot longer than what I had to but I also was recruited by the store manager and that seems to have made quite a differnece from the time I had my interviews to the time I was officially offered the job.

Okay that sounds good I hope mine goes as smoothly there's no reason why it shouldn't. I actually had my interview with the area manager and the store manager and was hired on the spot so mine was just one interview so that deft helps the process I'm sure. Hopefully I will hear from HR tomorrow to get the ball rolling. Not sure if they'd have one on the 24th since the 23rd is Easter. I know the store needs help so just crossing my fingers. Keep me updated about where yours will be and what hotel they are putting you in. I was a supervisor for AT&T device support center so I have a lot of knowledge already :)

I did get an email today from the training gal. It was an email stating the training schedule, times & location. So i'm going to Overland Park, KS. As far as travel information and where i'll be staying I don't know that yet, the email stated I would be contacted by my Manager with all of my travel info, all I know so far is I have to be there at 8:30 Monday morning. At least I know where i'm going!

Thank you although I'm very impatient I just checked my status again on hireright and it now says 75% which is good I like that it's moving quickly as verifying all my stuff should be very easy. I know they have yet to contact at least one of my previous employers because he is one of my bestfriends and we keep in contact so hoping they will finish it tomorrow... Thinking positive :)

Bobbi I'm glad you found out where your going that's a relief let me know when you find out the rest of the info as I'm anxious and curious!

has anyone gone through the training process that had to commute? I was wondering if they pay a mileage fee or reimburse you for gas. also, i was also wondering if the commuters still get the prepaid visa for a food allowance. I live about one hour away from my training location and just thinking about how much its going to cost me to fill up my car that much is killing me.

Hello tc687 I am currently in training in training in Birmingham AL and I'm from Atlana Ga which is probably a 2 hour drive but surprisely AT&T flew me from Atlanta so I'm not sure how they will handle your situation but I just thought I share my experience to give you a possible idea.

Hello Amber
Congrats on getting the job! They put you the Hampton Inn and if its not enough open rooms they may put you in the Hilton across the street I had classmates in both hotels.Training here in Birmingham has been a great experience my instructors made it very memorable and exciting there are about 10 people in the class and throughout the training you are in groups so most of the classroom work will be with your group. Lots of hands on activities, role playing, presentations and online web courses everything you need to know you will learn which makes the experience so much helpful. :-)

Thank you! Thanks for your insight as well it's very helpfull. How far is the training site from the hotel and how do they get us there? I was a supervisor at AT&Ts device support center so I'm familiar with a lot of the stuff they will probably be training on. Needless to say I'm excited to get started and meet some new people. What week of training are you in?

Your welcome! The training facility is 5 mins away from the hotel. You can actually walk there if u desire but the hotel shuttle will take you and pick you up everyday. This is my last week and tomorrow is my last day.

Do you know where you will be training? I am coming from Bakersfield to Cerritos.. It's 4 hours for me.. and as far as I understand, we get a debitcard for the meals and mileage is reimbursed but not at $4 a gal...sorry
