I'm not sure if anyone will have an answer, but recently iI accepted a job offer with Cn to be a freight Conductor. About 2 1/2 weeks ago i went for my physical and drug test but I have yet to hear back. I have emailed and left a voicemail for the Lady who set up my physical without hearing back. But my question is, is this normal? Waiting this long to get started with training? Or do i need to try harder to contact them? Any input would be great, Thanks.

Sounds pretty normal. I just got my final offer from CP after weeks of waiting.
