Received my start date, but…..

Hey all! I received my start date today of 7-25-22 for ramp at IND. I thought the email I got prior to that though said that I would have to do the USPS background check before I’d receive a start date since tamp agents handle mail. I haven’t received anything about that though. Is that something that comes closer to start date or is that not a thing at all stations?

So, I never actually received an email for it either, but apparently it was already done. I didn't have to fill anything out or do anything. I've been working on the ramp since April, and it hasn't been mentioned at all. I think you'll be good... And if they do need something from you, don't worry, they'll let you know during your first week. 😊

Thanks. I just was worried about maybe missing an email and not doing something that needed to be done.

Do you mind me asking long did it take to get your start date?

I accepted my CJO on 5-17-22 and got my start date today, 6-13-22 so it was less than a month for me to actually get my start date. I’ve lived in the same town for 40 years though and only had 2 employers over the last 10 years so that definitely helps speed up the background check.

I got good news today. My start date got moved a week closer so now I start on 7/18 instead of 7/25.
