@brittg72409 My Recruiter coordinator actually sent me a copy of my sterling report (which was completed 6/15) when they asked for my W-2s and pay stub. I think this is mainly because I asked them not to contact my current employer (my current employer is vengeful and if they found out I was looking at another job they would likely let me go on the spot).

 

So I know the Sterling part is done, and that they have also pulled my credit thanks to that as well.

@GelleyRiv22 @brittg72409 , Update, I heard from my Recruiter coordinator today. She said I was still in the background check phase according to my applicant file, but that I had cleared the most significant hurdles so she didn't think it would be much longer. She said that we should get an email from the background check team once they have processed the clearance to move forward, and that shortly after we get that email we should be contacted by our recruiter to talk about a start date.

@Redruss91 that’s great news! I haven’t heard anything yet or seen anything from Sterling yet, but hopefully things are moving forward behind the scenes. 🤞🏼

lucky! I am still waiting for that email. From what my recruiter coordinator said before, it shouldn’t be much longer, I am kind of surprised it’s taking this long honestly.

@Redruss91 they actually just called and gave me a start date too. It’s in just about 2 weeks so I literally have to hit the pavement tomorrow with touring apartments!

@brittg72409 Tuesday, 7/5, still waiting to clear the background screening. Confirmed with my recruiter coordinator that I had completed all the big stuff, and that there was nothing left that would prevent a formal offer being made, but still haven’t gotten the 100% clear notice from the background team yet. I have no idea what is taking so long for the “last piece”. With my wife starting her new job on the 25th, I really need to get the ball rolling on getting set up in Dallas.

@Redruss91  Did you let your coordinator know the date your wife starts? I’d highly recommend coming beforehand to secure an apartment, because a few places we looked at were very limited on availability. I have two days left at my current job and I move to Dallas in 3 days. My emotions are all over the place. The apartments i mentioned to you have bent over backwards to make sure we have a place on time, after supply chain delays have caused issues with unit renovations.  I’d highly recommend them if you’re still looking in the Euless area. Fingers crossed you get good news this week!

Hi SWA family!

 

This is my journey so far as a Ramp Supervisor at Burbank (BUR), CA

 

05/31/22- Applied for Ramp Supervisor for Burbank, CA

06/06/22- Virtual interview via Microsoft Teams

06/06/22- Filled out additional background info inquiry

06/08/22- Uploaded my COVID-19 card

06/08/22- Received continent offer, stated the 4-6 weeks like many here received

06/09/22- Finger prints completed

06/09/22- Drug screening completed

06/22/22- Received email that my Employment Screening (Background?) was completed

06/22/22- Received email that the next available start date for me would be 07/05/22 and asked for me to confirm availability

06/23/22- Offer letter received

06/23/22- Start date confirmed, received "Ground Ops New Hire Training Overview" attachment

 

Each step I replied or did the required action same day, I still have not received the onboarding packet and with my start date on 07/05/22, I'm getting a little uneasy.  One thing that's helped calm my nerves is this community, know that the process takes time and is different for everyone. 

 

Good luck to everyone thinking about joining the family or in the process,

 

Chris (Spyduck02)

@Spyduck02  Did you get your Onboarding paperwork? I got the Screening Complete from SWA yesterday, but I haven’t received anything else. I thought I was getting it today like everyone else but I was wrong.
