Well don't know what to tell about training area as I am in Richmond, but you might be expected to report for training with given your current employer less than two weeks.
I was called on friday and offered the job,background check already been done at first she told me that the training class would be Aug. 25th but then she called back and said they had a training class that starts on the 18th and would like for me to start on that date. I was off on Monday and Tuesday so this will leave me giving my current employer a couple of days notice. I feel like not returning because I would like a few days off before I start the training at Verizon so I don't know what to do.
Good luck to you hope everything works out!
