Only a limited amount of people has access to that kind of information in a Port (hiring projections). That would be the Port Director, and his/her immediate subordinate. Of course, I am not allowed to speak with the Port Director nor that Chain of Command.

      Back to square one.

      Man! You have a set of cods, bro! Haha. I dont have it in me to call my port. I figured MHC would be the only ones in charge of all the hiring. Hats off to you for calling your port though!

      • We literally just go when I get home from work and run on the track at the nearest high school. We time it and do it about 6 times. We sprint and then walk a lap. I come in at 38-41 seconds so I'm good.

        I also have been trying to do some HIITS to help with speed.

        • When I say I'm good I mean I am coming in under the 50 seconds they want.

          It needs work and I'm aware. Just needed to clarify that. In truth both my kids have beat me. Lol

            You should really give a shot and call your port. The lady I spoke with was trying to help me and gave me honest answers. And she wasn't in a hurry to speak with me.

            Explain them your situation, that you've been trying to get information from MHC with no success. Maybe you get better luck than me.

              OK so pardon my ignorance but how do you measure your distance on the track? Like how far from where to where do you run to do the 220

              • 220 yards is approximately 1/2 a lap on a 1/4 mile track

                  • Can anyone fill me in on a rough overview of how the background investigation works??
                    Do they inform you of when you are assigned an investigator? Does he call you to meet with him towards the end of the investigation or it could be during any time??

                        Start doing sprints during your distance running. At various points during your run, pick out a distance approximately 100 meters in front of you, and then sprint to that spot. Slow down to a jog afterwards to get your breath but don't stop running. If you run 2 miles, try to get 2-3 sprints in during the 2 mile run. This will help improve your run time and your sprints. If you're fortunate enough, like myself, to live at an elevation of 4300 feet, then when you get to Glynco, it will be an automatic 30 seconds or so off of your run just from the change in altitude.
