Was it the test where it's a bunch of dots and they ask you to state the number you see? I'm not color blind, but am a bit color deficient and have trouble with those sometimes.

Yeah, that's the one. Unfortunately you have to pass it completely to get the job i guess

Congrats to everyone who received their FO!

Has everyone here received follow-up from there medical already? My original appointment was 5/18 but had to go get another blood draw done on 5/27 because they didn’t do it correctly. Still haven’t heard anything and it’s driving me crazy.

I haven't, but I was out of town for a while. I didn't have my medical done until 6/1 and TB follow up 6/3, so you are not the furthest behind. Still waiting on my response from CHS, but the doctor told me I passed everything.

I'm guessing it will still be a couple of weeks before I get my FO.

I received my CHS packet on 5/25 with no follow ups and haven’t heard anything yet

Our process is very similar. My medical was 5/18, with the TB on 5/20. On 5/23, CHS emailed me to let me know that the depth perception result wasn't recorded and one of my blood tubes wasn't spun correctly (whatever that meant). I did the depth perception and the repeat draw the following day, 5/24. On 5/25 they reached out to confirm they had everything. 6/7 is when the UPS arrived. Seeing how you had the repeat draw three days after mine, I'd give it till 6/10 for the UPS. If you're really on edge, sign up for UPS and it'll allow you to track the package!

Congratulations anon789 and abdel675!
If you don't mind sharing, were you two internal hires, or external hires? (completely understand if you would prefer not to disclose).

My onboarding timeline has looked very similar to what you both shared (received medical results back last week, no follow-ups), and I am trying to gauge if I should hope for a call soon, or settle in for a few more weeks of waiting. My guess would be that internals process faster, but that is just speculation.

Internal hire here. When being verbally offered the position, the caller did mention that internal hires do cruise through certain steps (some paperwork, etc.). I am not sure if that relates to your delay in receiving a call, but I am sure yours is coming!

I was actually an external hire, but my fingerprints were already in the system. As for everyone waiting, i wish you all the best, don't let it drive you crazy , but instead try to occupy your mind with something and ALWAYS have your phone on you. I got a call late in the evening.

Congrats to everyone who got their final offer. For those who did, has your background check been fully completed and your references been contacted?

Since the pipeline reopened in 2016 I have not heard of anyone's background being completed prior to starting. Mine took almost 2 years. I believe they are faster now. If you are not sure about something you might want to start asking questions.

I imagine this setup makes people who think they have questionable things in their background occasionally not take an offer for worry of being let go at a moments notice. Maybe it's all by design.

It's also likely part of a plan to not invest resources in a new hire before they accept the job.

Well I got a second opinion on my color vision and the doctor signed off on it. I'm hoping to get an FO soon.

Did you guys do the Lautenberg certificate? The wording on the portal made it seem like you don't submit it until you start.

Good luck on the updated second opinion. From my understanding you sign the COE and Lautenberg when you receive your FO.

I’m doubtful that gets started before you start.

Sometime before you start, I understand there’s standard background check. Making sure there’s no outstanding warrants, convictions, etc.

Then your background investigation is started as you near graduating FLETC. My class started getting contacted as we finished SAIT. Some did their background interviews at FLETC. I did mine back at the field office. Then, your references are contacted.

I’m not sure if the background investigators have a prescribed order for how to conduct the backgrounds.

This pattern has held so far with recent hires.

fully expected to see more people post about getting FO through out the week, hopefully more of us will get the call by the end of the day. I tried to reach out to HR to find out if I would get any notification about the results of my follow up on my medical (if im now cleared), but no response. So i'm not sure if I'm now waiting to hear back about medical or if Im just waiting to get FO or Not Selected email.
