    Default waiting on USIC after assessment test

    Hello all, hope someone can help.

    My question is, how long should I expect until USIC contacts me with instructions for the next step in the hiring process after the assessment test?

    Thanks in advance...

    Most companies probably waiting until after the holidays before doing the hiring and classes. I would guess mid January to early February. Depending on where in the state you are located and how many locators they will need to fully staff that area. Someone posted to figure one week for every utility a person is going to have to know. Illinois will probably have two to possible four or six locates so classes will need to start soon to get ready for the dig season which starts around march 1st

    Call them back and see if you passed the test, if they are going to hire see if they will give you the date or the run around.It's worth a try!

    well i called in last week, a couple days later i got a email for the assessment test, ( like a day before xmas ) and i got a reply yesterday. so i would think you will be hearing soon. good luck.

    either they didnt like my assessment or im not qualified enough. ( not really sure how im not qualified though with 6 years of utility construction )
