I have come to realize that the process to get a job on a military base is quite extensive and exhausting, which is to be expected since it is a DoD position.
When I accepted the job offer it started out with filling completing 35 pages of information, they were extremely detailed. Next was turning this paperwork in and receiving my finger print cards (you are given a card for each state you have lived in over the last 5 years, so 4 for me).
This happened before Christmas and yesterday I finally had my appointment to have my finger prints done. It has been a very long time since I have had them done so it was awesome to see that it is all done electronically now, no gross ink to deal with.
My finger print cards will be sent off to each state to check my non-existent records and then I will receive the link to complete my background check information. This is the part that can take a while because they do state background checks as well as federal.
I have my physical on the 13th and it will take all day to complete. Then I will have a follow up appointment (who knows when that will be) and hopefully not long after that I will get my start date.
This meme made me chuckle.
I am really excited to get this new chapter started, I thrive on routine and I know that the first few weeks of a new job are stressful so I'm ready to get going. :)
Happy Wednesday everyone!
