Hi–
I don’t have much time to write just now, but as I’m about halfway through the process and it’s quite fresh in my mind, I though I might be able to help a little bit.

Here’s how it went:

I applied online. About a week later I was sent the HireRight App, which I returned immediately. Silence. Then, on a layover on my way to Denver for the fair I got a call from my POC. She asked to schedule a phone interview, but I mentioned my location and she said I could just drop in to the office. When I got to the fair (first in line) I was whisked away from the cool movie and cooler people right off to have an interview. It was about :15; questions asked were on the order of: why do you want to work in Antarctica? Do you get on well with others? Just afterwards the interviewer sat me down with an FEMC construction foreman; we chatted about roofing, plywood, and snow caves for about :10 and then he informed me I’d be hired. I loafed around, met people at the Job Fair, went home. The offer letter came today.

I suppose this must have been kinder to me than it is for most people, judging from what I’ve read here and on iceboard.com. If you’ve any other question I’ll do my best to try and answer them. It’s great to finally be able to help you all with something after you’ve spent so much time satiating my own curiosity.

hope that helps,

Ian
