Background Check

Post by Bbab0223 » Wed Nov 04, 2015 3:31 pm

On Sunday 11/01/2015 I got an conditional employment from Ns pending my background check and Physical. They sent me a form about criminal history and driving record. Which I filled out and sent right back to them. How long does it normally take to hear back from them. From what I keep reading in this forum is the Ns police should be calling me. I haven't heard anything since I sent in the forms they sent me. Is this normal????

Have you ever seen the movie Rudy? He asks the priest about getting into Notre Dame, and whether he should pray harder. The priest says that the admissions people work in their own time. This is how railroad HR people work.

That's a great analogy. Good movie to quote too!
