  • I applied on october 13 2018 and i just started on may 24 th 2019. Called for interview January 22nd drug test 25th and called me on may 18th to start on 25th 2019. 7 long months.

  • After your first interview, you are given two weeks to receive an email that asks you to decline or accept the job. then another week or two to come in for a group setting to fill in forms..then they send you another email to come in for orientation. best advise after your interview check your emails religiously..daily in the second week..i missed checking the last days of the second week and missed my orientation date. but a week later, i was surprised to get an email inviting me for another interview. All in all things have changed..the whole process takes 3 months.

  • Did you do your offer letter ? If so, if they haven't contacted you in two weeks I would get in touch with the person who interviewed you. They should be able to provide you with the number of the person in HR. Let them know you accepted the offer and have not received information about orientation.

  • Can be anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months

  • It took a little over one month to get my background screening back.

  • When you are on the pre-hire list means they will contact you when you get to the last phase which means how many employees they will be hiring and they will go by test scores

  • 2 weeks I think

  • What kind of drug test is it? and do you take the drug test the same day as the interview?

  • Pre hire list after interview
