Hey everyone, this is my first post although I have frequented the site the past month for some insight. I recently went through the application process and subsequent interviews for the pt package handler job. Throughout the tour and the interviews the fact that there is a high worker turnover rate and that the job is physically demanding was reiterated throughout, but I wasn’t discouraged; I am a hard worker and realize this will not be easy work. Moreover, I have 2 years until I am going to med school and the hours (midnight shift), tuition assistance, and benefits eventually, I find appealing. I was told I was hired, however they told me they only hire at certain points in the month so I wouldn’t start for a few weeks. In the time between I filled out additional paper work on site, supplementing the online documents, as well as taking a pic and receiving my id. I was supposed to start Monday but again I was called and told I wouldn’t be able to start until next week, because the trainer who is supposed to train me is out. Up until this point so far its been a good experience, grant it I haven’t actually worked yet, but everyone I have meet has been professional, furthermore I like the few people I have met and look forward to working. I think perhaps that they think I may be a good potential hire but are just waiting until someone quits and there is room for me. At the tour of the facility of about 20 I was dressed business like, fitting for an interview, the majority of the rest were dressed like they just got out of a pick-up basketball game and were goofing around like it was a class field trip, so I stood out I guess. In my actual interviews I believe I represented my self well, so that’s why I came to this conclusion. Which leads me to my question is this wait typical? Should I be concerned that I am not going to be hired and they are just stringing me along? I am curious of any current or past worker’s thoughts. Thanks for your time.
