Anyone know the timeline between finding out your facility and your start date? I have to give 60 days notice for my apt or I’ll be wasting a lot of moola.
I think I’ve read on here before that when they send you the email of where you’re being placed they’ll offer you 3 start dates of either 15/30/45 days away. I’m sure you can try to request an later date though.

Oh awesome thanks! I though it was they send a “where” and a separate “when”.

Just looked at my last offer from another bid and I got the facility offer email on April 10 but had to send requested start date by the 15th. Start dates were as follows May 12, 26, and June 9.

The bid before that I received email on on Nov 21 and had to reply by Nov 26. Start dates were Jan 6, Jan 29, and Feb 3.

Hope that helps

You’re probably going to see start dates after October 1st (beginning of new fiscal year). The last round of lists got start dates starting then.....

Do we get change of station leave as new hires? I live an hour and a half away from my airport if that matters.

Anyone know how long it takes to get the FOL? I know they go by when you choose your start date just wondering how far out since you typically need proof of income when getting a place set up to rent and etc..

I chose Oct. 27th as my start date and got my FOL on the 26th.

I got my selection on the 16th.

So, a little over a week-ish?

Just got my assignment I didn’t get Tucson but Amarillo I have a lot of family there so I’m happy still!
Amarillo has a Chipotle.

There are worse places.

All that carnitas and hot salsa will have you clincin' to the next pooper in no time.

There seems to be a big disparity in facilities offered. One guy, on Thursday, posted a list with numerous 11s while the highest I’ve seen before or since then has been a 9 (DCA, BNA).
