  • Hello,

    I failed the poly back in July, would I still be able to apply under this announcement? If I can, would it be a waste of time, being that I failed and this could be used against me?

        Where have you been? BP is moving towards 100% polys.

        • Got tsl2 today. Awesome way to start the day. Avalon Congrats.

          In regards to location assignments I'm hearing a lot of mixed things. On the boards it seems everyone believes this hiring push is going to put all new interns in Arizona. A family friend I know that is with BP has told me the agency is trying to give all new interns the location they prefer to keep attrition and vrp down.
          Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

            Remember you said this. Life can be more difficult at the remote stations but as has been discussed before, you can also save/invest some serious cash while living there and you'll pickup good experience, esp if you stay past the point when everyone else seeks VRPs.
            Thanks. I meant what I said. Im in the hole about $45K to Uncle Sam on student loans, and will be around $75-80 after completion of my MPA. Ill stay in that remote location to pay him off as fast as possible.

            • Just received a call from the nurse line in regards to a voice mail that I left on 11/19/2010. The nurse asked me several question about my surgery and when I expected to get back 100%. She told me she was going to put a note in their system in regards to my surgery and that if get called to schedule my PT1 to let them know what going on.
              She asked me to fax a note/letter from my orthopedic dr. stating the date of surgery and when he expects me to be able to 100%.
              She said that I would be placed on hold until I’m medically clear, which it should be in 4-6 weeks. She was extremely helpful which I didn’t expect when I received the phone call.

                    Forgot to ask, how'd you do yesterday? Did you see some of the soup sandwich guys walking in? I can't believe some people walk into interviews without shaving, let alone no suits.

                              Times that by 6. Would the OB fail them for appearance alone? I would think so, it said to dress professionally in the letter.

                              The oral panel also warned me about the potential of being permanently scarred from the "fumes" at Artesia.

                              • Anyone know if they can a waiver for the hearing test? This is the only thing in the entire process I am worried about. I know the standard is 30dB or less at 500, 1k, 2k, and 40dB for 3k on their site. My last audiology test I had 55dB loss in my left ear from tinnitus. Anyone know if I could get a 2nd opinion by another doc, maybe include a few letters from other people and doctors and get a waiver if I fail?

                                I heard of wearing ear plugs for 24 hrs before the test helps. Any other tips?
