    Has anyone who has already completed medical, heard anything back?

    I was told "no news is good news" when it comes to the medical.

    I just got called around 2pm today. April 2010 PAT'er, turned in my CPAT in late June and my last name also starts with an "S". Need to make some copies of updated paper work and she's coming to my house tonight to do my background check.

    Good luck to those of you still waiting. Its just a matter of time before your phone rings.

    For those that have completed background checks. How long did it take for the background check to be completed? Did they call you back to let you know it was done? From there, personnel calls for the medical set-up, right? Can you set it up over the phone? Thanks in advance!

    Background took like 2 weeks. I didnt really have to turn anything in, but I followed up with my BI like a week after I spoke with her and she said she was turning in her files that friday.

    After those files are turned in Ms hammond will then call you. You will then have to report in person to pee for drug test and then schedule your medical. You had a choice of like 5 different days and a variety of times. The medical center is downtown.

    I didnt get called for my medical for like 3 weeks after my background was completed. I'm assuming that varies for each person.

    My group that reported was like 25 people, so they probably waited until that group was completed and then called us in. (we had 2 days notice for this date).

    In general, from my initial call from my investigator to the day of my medical......roughly 3-4 weeks if memory serves me right. Got called on a Wednesday saying I cleared my BI, went down that Friday (same week), to receive conditional offer and sign-up for medicals which were held the very next week. Today is 2 weeks to the day since my medical with no word back...

    Only thing i need to do is residency check with my BI. I have a condo all set to go in Edison Park.....just waiting on word I cleared medical before i officially pull the trigger.

    Got called to set up Medical today literally a few hours after the investigator left my house. I guess it pays to be a veteran of the process..

    I know it sounds goofy, but they did. They also called me last week to set it up then called me back to tell me to wait til after the home visit. So I don't need the aggravation of d-head comments either..

    never posted but have been reading for a long time.

    someone awhile back stated they were taking their CPAT in West Allis, WI. Just wondering if that person has been called for their BI yet. I took mine in West Allis and have not been called yet.

    Chigo, they didn't change the procedure you idiot, they obviously made a mistake. Believe what you want, and yes, I do run 100's as well.
    I don't post as soon as I hear something when it comes to me in this process. I've been through it all before only to do it all over again. So my hopes only go so high. Go troll somewhere else cause you're looking like an idiot.
    I posted what went down with me, like I need confirmation from you. Take it down a notch champ..

    She came to do my background last night around 6:50pm. It took all of 5 minutes to do. She wanted updated (2014) copies of city sticker and plate sticker registration. She said I was one of the easiest she's had for 2 weeks since I've only had 2 jobs my whole life. She mentioned a union worker who had over 65 jobs and listed everyone of them so she had to call each of them and it took nearly 3-4 days to complete. Which one of you are that guy? Lol. She said they're talking about 150 person class and the rumor of the current head of training stepping down that my source heard a few weeks back was true because she mentioned that as well. I didn't get called for medical shortly after. Lol

    Back to the waiting game. The excitement was short bit sweet.
