    If you do all 3 (med, phys, drug) plan on a good 3+ hrs.

      Mine took about an hour and it was in Stafford, TX. Where is yours scheduled at?

      I didn't take off work but was able to schedule mine for 17:30 and they were flexible about when to show up.

              No drug test, but everything else. The lady was awesome, she went from one thing to the next like a well oiled machine. It was funny because I stepped out of the hearing box and into a hallway were I thought we were going to another room and she said OK stop here and look down the hallway I looked and there was the eye chart. It was just one after another. The whole time I was there I never saw another patient. Maybe all they do is pre-employment test for the government, I don't know...

              • Man you guys are lucky. It took me 2.5 hours to get my fitness test done. After the first hour they hooked me up to check bp as well as the EKG. Then I sat for another hour to call me back in to do the test. Then I waited another 25 minutes for them to say "okay you're done!"

                ...

                MAVERIK: I don't disagree that this forum is a great place to do that. I contend this is the wrong thread to do that. I say you start one up!
                "Officer, you are kinda hot."

                "And you are kinda intoxicated."

                  Longest part for me was getting those 5 dozen suction cups to stay in place during the EKG!

                  P.S. I hate the step test, i'd rather run or something. Sucking wind and burning legs to the tune of porno music does not make for a pleasant morning!

                    HAHA. That's a good way of putting it. "porn music."

                    Funny story actually: my EKG was held up because I have hair on my chest. So you can imagine how red I got when the pretty girl said "okay take off your shirt we have to hook you up to an EKG" and I was like "really? ...I wish I knew that before showing up." So now she has to shave parts of my chest. She then says "yea well girls like a shaven chest" to which I said "If you tell me what else girls like I'll have that fixed before I'm outta here and have a better chance of getting a cup of coffee with you."



                    At least she laughed.
                    "Officer, you are kinda hot."

                    "And you are kinda intoxicated."

                        • My medical test was near LAX by a big bald gangsta dude! You guys with female nurses got lucky.... I still wake up in cold sweats. He was a cool guy though and medical was a breeze.

When did you get your med/fit/BI done? Looking at when you got your TO, you shouldn't have to do the refreshes in a few months, but if you did, that would be
                              My medical cleared in September because I had a NOPA, and my BI in April or so. I just took my drug test last month also, so everything should be good for those.

                                Hey can you please give me your time line?


                                Also, did they give you a choice for either Oakland or SFO? I am scheduled for VBT at Oakland, but I listed SFO as my geographic preference, does that mean Oakland would probably be the place of my EOD? I think I am just worrying too much.
