I got an email from sterling talent solutions to start the backgroud investigation, that has to mean something right?

NO! Unless you clear that quick and get a drug test it only means you are moving forward. It means you're guaranteed a spot in the future though. Classes in august are filled 100%, sept filled as well.

Exam seemed reaaaal easy, guess i overstudied!

 

DUDE I was one of the ones who got 100. This test was easy as shit. Did anyone else notice how there were 2 exact Clear/Proceed signals? I had asked the instructor if I was seeing things and she just said whatever lol Free points. I could have sworn I made a mistake or two on the Definitions but NOPE....I was done in 45 minutes...I busted my ass studying for this thing.

 

Ironhorse did we by chance speak in the lobby? I remembered the individuals who got 100. Linda was so happy to see the high scores lol

We most likely did speak to each other then, ha. Yeah, Linda was happy. I didn't notice the double clear but now that i think about it, you're right. Congrats to you also. Now we wait, ughhhh.

Hey Fed,

For background check did you get that 10 year review from IRS? I heard people say to proactively get one to alleviate wasted time on verification. Just curious if that has what they need on it. They didn't specify types of work validation needed.

for those that passed the S&D, congrats, but it only gets harder from here until you qualify. Also, word on the street is that they are looking to hire 10 classes of 24 a/c's next year. Something to think about for the ones that havent gotten the call yet.

Awesome, more time to over-study again and make the exams easier like the S&D was. :)

Anyone who took the 7/17 S&D exam receive the Sterling background check e-mail? It keeps telling me I have an account already but I have requested a 'Forgot Password' email and have not received it yet. I dont remember ever making an account here.
