You still need to get the emails about start dates, the official offer letter, and then you'll get the OnBoarding emails.

My timeline for the CS&S Remote position, so far:

 

June 20th - Applied for CS&S position. (had some technical troubles uploading my resume and answering requirement questions.)

 

June 21st - I received a denial email.

 

June 27th - I received an email update explaining there was an error with my application and to disregard the previous communication as my application had since been moved back into the review stage. 

 

June 29th - I received an email inviting me to schedule a phone interview. Scheduled for 7/6.

 

June 30th - Received an email with a link to view the status in "My Work Day"

 

July 6th - Phone interview. The recruiter was absolutely punctual and called me at the exact time I was scheduled for. (I highly recommend having your work history and resume in front of you for this.) I was invited for a Virtual Interview on 7/18. 

 

July 18th - Virtual Interview Scheduled (*will provide an update after my interview)
