Yup that's correct.. Unless they will separate the two teams after the two day orientation I think it's CPU all the way around

Nope, you will stay together through training.

Can anyone elaborate on how often there is camera time in training? That's the only thing I'm dreading...having to be camera ready all of the time.

That's funny. I am not a phone person either... I hate phones but I'm getting by OK. In fact I've got some of the best call stats in our group.

BGC finally done, verbal offer

Got my phone call with verbal offer, yesterday, right before everyone went on vacation. So, it will be awhile before a get the email, then the paperwork, but I don't even care.

Yesterday was the biggest fundraiser of the year for my town's elementary schools, and I was in charge of bringing in sponsors, raffle and auction items. The call came at the craziest point of the craziest day in awhile, and I almost missed it!

I have been in training for 2 weeks so far and only have been on camera a total of 3 times.

All 3 times were for introduction times.

You will be on camera on day 1.

Thanks! I figured it'd be something like that.

Question, how far do you have to live within the radius of the selected city for this position? Also, I see alot of people saying they received an email stating they received their application after applying, I never received such an email. Does everyone get that email or only some?

After you apply, if they want to possibly interview you, you'll get an email with a questionnaire. You would then fill that out, send back, and the next step would be they contact you for interview 1.

Some people apply to more than one location. That seems to have worked for many. Others (like me) applied to one, and were lucky enough to get a hit off the one application.

Unless the job listing specifically states that you have to be in the 100 mile radius, you don't really have to be in any certain area. Others may have more information on that.

On a side note... 11/26ers we start a week from tomorrow!!!

Thank you for that info. What I meant about the email was if after hitting submit application if everyone received an email from apple stating they (apple) received your application and thank you for your interest in apple etc etc. When I submitted my application I never received that email, and I'm reading on here that people received that. Just hoping my application went through ok.

Oops sorry about that! Yes, I received something like a "thank you for your interest" email after I submitted, which stated that they received my application, and if they were interested, a recruiter would be contacting me.

In your case, since you didn't receive one, I would try to apply again. On the listing you applied for, does it say "applied" now?

Yes it shows I applied, I couldn't reapply to it. But what I did was I applied under the city of Austin (San Antonio was the first city I applied for) and I did receive an email that time. Im just hoping it still went through and they received my application for the San Antonio listing. Given that I'm closer to SA than I am Austin.

How long after the ergonomics lesson do we have to purchase a chair? I want to get a decent one but I won't have the money for the one I want until December possibly the second week. Do I have time? I start 11-26
