@Happygirl: Did they say anything about them having problems with applicants paperwork pending? What went on in orientation today?
I was at orientation they didn't mention anything about it to us. Though they split us into two groups. There were still people there doing the 6 hour training/physicals as well.

I finally got to sign the offer letter as well. It said it was conditional, on you passing the physical/drug screen/background check. So maybe the reason it's taking so long to process is something to do with that?

Something else that kind of sucks was the fact that there were a few people that never showed up for orientation.

When calling HR all you get is the same recording which is they are aware of the problem online with attempting to schedule . There will be 6hr training & drug tests all week...Actually the next two weeks as I saw that when I schedule mine. While taking drug test several came in to do physical, one thing she did stress was that those on medications takes a while to come in as its verified with pharmacy...I just think everything is changing by the week & HR really need to be consistent & on the same page because by reading this blog everyone has done different steps to progress to the next stage in hiring...

@Dee I spoke with Katie this morning ans she told me that my medical was still pending. Also that even if my medical was cleared that they have hired all the people that they need at this moment.She also stated that I should receive something by the first week of August. You were told something different so I don't know what to believe at this point.

@Dee: I just don't see how she told you that they will call you this week with an orientation date and she told me that they didn't have any more orientation dates available and they have hired all the people that they need at this time. I am just sitting here thinking does she know what she is talking about at all. It seems strange to me how information can change from the same person from one day to the next.

@Dee: I don't know what to believe at this moment. I do know that if this job was meant to be then it will be. All I can do now is wait and continue to pray. However,she should make sure that the information is correct before she start answering questions and giving out information.

@Matt05:Yes Matt it does seems strange that our group is having the most problems. It seems to me that they would handle the issue with the prior applicants before they moved on to other applicants.

that's what she told me tho.... Believe what you want... And she is probably tired of people calling her with the same questions... But trust me it's all good
