I'm glad we have this forum to at least get word we didn't get the job.

Why Jan? Wouldn't they do Oct class first?

Do you think calls for both Oct and January happened today?

I’m not acquainted with this process all that much but do the call backs occur in one bundle or over a period of time?

Congrats to those who recieved call backs. Very proud of all of you.

I want to puke.

Highly doubt they are making calls for January today. The October class starts in a month and a couple days, they'll probably take care of that before worrying about January.

I assumed they are calling for both classes today. Have they split up days for the calls by class previously?

I meant Oct. I would assume those calls go out first.

Oh well... I thought my interview went fine, but as I left the whole group of them laughed after they shut the door behind me, and I got a sinking feeling at that point that it probably was not meant to be. Thanks for updating and congrats to those who have soft offers in their pockets.

It is a good job - if you can get it. Decent hours. Easy work. Decent pay (eventually). So it is worth mourning that loss.

Keep applying if you really want it - they post 1-2x a year.

And please don't take it personally if you did not get it. Unless you absolutely blew it, their hiring selections make absolutely no sense.

I haven't lost faith! From previous years, it looks like they call on different days for different classes. Today was probably for October.

They laughed when I left the room as well - I assumed that it was my charming wit ;)

Who else have received calls besides the three people who have received a call back?

The chosen 3!...If they’re hiring around 80 people, there’s no way they called everyone in one day. Let’s all wait a week before going full on panic mode.

80 people in the fiscal year.

50 during this round of hiring. Presumably there will be another job posting in the next few months for a March-April start date

Does anyone think they’ll be making calls tomorrow? If it’s just 50 it’s totally possible they all went out today.

It appears that in previous years, the calls went out on different days but did not always correspond to a particular class. But people were called after the "main day" of calling.

For those of you who were made an offer, who called you? Curious to know if everyone was called by the same person. If so, gives me a little hope calls will continue today

The HR people are pretty pleasant (or at least they were). I'd call for an update
