thanks


First orientation (half to 3/4 of a day)....then medical (1-2days)....then you wait a week or so and you will get the results to see if you passed the medical or not.....you will go down for final processing which means filling out all sorts of paperwork (w2....life ins.....medical ins etc...) and take your picture for you ID card a week to a couple of days before you start FBF.......your probation lasts 18 months from the day you start FBF....once you go down for final processing you will be able to tell your current job that you're outski......remember this is approximate time frames....things could always be different from when I did it

That isnt good for people who want this job with a higher list number. The economy is bad and a job any job is a good thing at this time. I wish everyone luck.

So what is there to expect from orientation? Just out of curiousity, do they ask for your permit or cdl license at orientation or is that held off until Floyd Bennett?
