Wasn’t given No option for later date was asked  if I was able to start the date they gave.  wasn’t going to turn away the opportunity never know how long till they contact back if you do defer for a future class. On my letter it says for elevator and escalator dept but heard stories that sometimes you get placed in other depts other than the one that was listed in your offer letter so won’t know until final paperwork

@J3737 it took a couple weeks after the background check. I received a call again from Michelle telling me that there was a scheudle mishap and I’m suppose to look out for email to come in for final processing within the next two weeks for a upcoming feburary class. I was suppose to go in for Monday but was told not to come in and wait for another email for final processing.

Hey guys it’s been a while since I logged on I been really busy with training and all I started 11/9/20 . I’m glad to hear many of you will be starting class soon and congrats on the department you got placed in!!. I was placed in power, within power they have other sections such as cables, testing, zones, and system operations. I was placed in system operations, the department is short staffed and are pushing people to move up fast, my helper class is taking some classes maintainer  classes take that’s how much they are rushing I would love to see some of you in this department. I have friends in elevator and escalators and other departments and for some reason you have to take a test to get transferred to power if you already in other department and many fail and idk why... so maybe you could ask you get placed here in the first place if you wish I promise you will not regret it.  But regardless you guys have a foot in already congrats brothers welcome it’s uphill from here.

Wow congratz! I still haven't received an appointment for the drug test yet. Although I did submit all the paperwork back in September. 

 

How often are we suppose to follow up with Michelle to get an appointment for the drug test/medical?

You might want to email her to check. I remember when I submitted the paper work I got an email a few days latter but I had to call them to just check if they got the email. I got the email in Sep then a week latter took the drug test.
