@Redruss91 did you have to do fingerprints? I am also starting soon for a corporate position. I did my drug test and iform for employment and education verification las week, but I haven’t seen anything about fingerprints. Can’t wait to get started, and hope to meet you when we start at HDQ in Dallas!

@brittg72409 I have not received anything about fingerprints yet. I just want the process to move a bit quicker. I want to know when I need to have everything situated in Dallas, and its hard to get an apartment when you don't know for sure when you are moving in! haha. Hope to meet you as well, as we start this exciting new journey at HDQ!

@Redruss91 i understand. I’m relocating to Dallas as well, so it’s rough not knowing when I’m going to need to be there, but I’ve been using the time to get everything lined up and ready to “pull the trigger” once I get a start date.

@Redruss91 Also, is it just me, or are apartments in Dallas notorious for not answering their phones?! This apartment search has been ROUGH. As soon as I have a start date, I’m going to have to go up there for a weekend to search in-person at this point.

Its been really rough to find an apartment that suits what I need! I need pet-friendly, and the extra charges for that are outrageous. Also have to find a spot where the commute for my wife and her potential new job isn't too bad. I am grateful that Dallas has a decent Metro system with a stop right by the corporate headquarters building. Monthly pass is only $97, so that will give me some good savings in gas. My commute to my current job is 42 miles one-way, lol.

@Redruss91 same here. I have a “restricted breed” dog so that has been a challenge. I own my home in my current city, so these aren’t things I’ve had to deal with in quite some time, and of course I can’t buy a home in Dallas until this one sells so I’m stuck with an apartment for now. 

 

Also, be careful when paying application and admin fees! I’ve lost out on $500 from applying at places, paying the fees, then finding out they’ve leased the apartment to someone else. They will not refund them even when it’s not “your fault”. 

Lastly, I just heard from my recruiter that fingerprints aren’t required anymore, so hopefully that applies to your position as well.
