My start date was the 23rd. They called me to push back my start date. Currently waiting on a phone call to tell me when to come in.I'm also to start in early Jan. I have been told I will be furloughed. Could I postpone my start date and stay on with the dod until this mess clears up? Also I been told that I don't get travel time off untill I swear in there. Could I swear at a faa facility closer to home?
There are no class dates for previous exp hires.I'm in a similar boat - class date in mid February, but I have to give notice next week or I forfeit a substantial portion of my total compensation in the form of bonuses and severance.
Have you received the welcome packet that we supposedly receive shortly before our class dates telling you how to book flights or whatever? Even if the government were to reopen next week, it seems unlikely that they'd be able to get everything up and running and get every single student out to OKC with 5 or so days notice. And that's assuming that our classes actually go as scheduled - for all we know, they may push everyone with a future date back by several weeks to allow the January classes to get started. This whole thing sucks.
Out of curiosity, had you already left your job and/or put in your notice when you got the call?
Yes, it took forever to get medically cleared. Apparently, it was sitting on the Flight surgeons desk. I got cleared late December then the shutdown happened. I have no idea when I will see a list. Waiting!!Anyone else from this bid FINALLY medically cleared and just waiting on a list? Stoked that Trump signed the bill and the government will remain open.
