Patience Is Definitely A Virtue During Background

Had a phone interview with my recruiter on 4/7, and received a CJO from her not even 10 minutes after we concluded our phone call for Ramp Agent at DEN. Initiated background check the same day, did drug screen and fingerprints on 4/8, received notification from Sterling that my background screen was complete on 4/15, and now I wait to hear official word back from my recruiter/employment screening specialist that I passed so I can notify my friends and family about this amazing opportunity. I have been pining for SWA for close to 10 years and I finally got my shot. Patience is one thing definitely needed throughout this whole process. I'm anxious like I have never been before :).

Most definitely! I’m just waiting for the Employment Screening Specialist to tell me what’s next. I’ve been waiting for an email reply for about a week now so hopefully it’s not too much longer.
