One time I had to work 5 days straight, no sleep, no going home...you stay until your site is covered.

Answered

Okay, so here in Colorado (for an unarmed position with no special security clearance) the process was pretty quick, in my opinion. There was no written exam required for the position I applied for, so that was a plus, as it helped things speed along a little quicker.
The whole process, from the day of my interview to my first day on the job, took approximately 10 days. That included the drug test, background check, reference check, and orientation (which was only a one-day thing, and lasted just a few hours).
Keep in mind, however....in most cases, no two applicants have exactly the same experience, so it could take longer for you to get started than I did, you could start sooner, or it could take the same amount of time as my situation did. It all depends on whether or not there are any unforeseen delays during any part of the drug test/background check/reference check/orientation process.
So my advice is to use this example/situation as a GENERAL GUIDELINE ONLY, as there are no guarantees about how fast or slow your hiring process will go.
Hope this info helps!

The general philosophy at the management level is to hire mostly part-timers so that if they keep them over for call-offs or try to mandatory them, the account won't go into non-billable overtime, so you can be hired for part time, expect part-time, but work as close as possible to full-time (if you're in a state where overtime is anything over 40 hours within a week).

You get paid STL minimum wage, but if you didn't get paid for the full time that you were there then you need to go speak to your manager and get the problem solved. I was there for about 4-6 hours and got paid for the full time.
