  • I applied, got an interview a month later, got orientation 2 weeks after, it’s been another 2 weeks and still waiting for training

  • I applied on Thursday, got an interview on Sunday, and orientation was the next Saturday. I actually had to wait another 4 days to go to the next orientation on Thursday but that was because different complications. All in all, pretty speedy, took like a week and a half without the delay.

  • I applied February 20th, a Saturday, got an interview February 23rd, a Tuesday. Wednesday I got emails to fill out tax information and read guidelines, and Thursday I officially got hired. I have orientation tomorrow and get training the day after.

  • I applied online on Sunday, had my interview Tuesday, orientation Thursday and then today (Friday) I have my first shift

  • It can take a day or two weeks. Just depends on how busy the manager is I guess.
