LGB Ramp agent

So had my interview on 2/9 cleared my background and drug test on 2/21 got an email regarding the start date on 3/25 and got another email that if I wanted to start in SNA on 3/25 I decline SNA as LGB is down the street from my house. I was told it could take up to 90 days to start at LGB. I have emailed at 30 day and 60 day with no update coming up on 90  days on 6/25... Does anyone know what the hold-up is or is anyone in the same situation?

Continue to be patient. I'm not sure the situation with LGB, but I'm sure they are working as efficiently as they can to get the ball rolling. You are almost there! Let's hope you hear something soon. 🙏 Keep us updated.

I remember the feeling! 😀 Luckily, you get to work in that nice Cali weather! Definitely use this time to study your city codes. At this rate, you'll ace that test on the first day! ✔️💯

When was the last time you inquired about status? I am a ramp agent at LGB and I believe it's just a matter of having enough trainers and scheduling. I heard we have some new hires coming in but I don't know when. 

I suggest you email again so that you can at least get a start date.

Let me know if I can help with anything. It's a great station to work at.

@jmalloy I have email every 30 days.Each time I get simpler reply which says no update at this time. I plan on sending another email at the 90 day mark. I do have 8 years experience with another airline. So I know what needs to be done on the ramp.
