How long after the 473 test do you have to wait to hear something? I have applied for several positions. I am looking to relocate so I am very flexible as to where I can work. I applied for 15 different cities (all near each other). Just wondering how long until the next step.

  • I received my results via email 30 minutes after testing.

  • A few weeks

  • It all depends on the location and how badly they need something. They usually open a hiring process once a month till position is filled. I'm a clerk and 6 yrs ago it took me 6 months to get hired. Check your email alot

  • In my case, it took 3 weeks after receiving test results to hear about next steps. Truth be told, I think it varies by location and depending upon the hiring needs, this will determine how quickly one hears back.

  • It could take a while. They open jobs very rarely & have not been filling positions.
