I too, recieved HireRight login info without actually seeing or talking to anyone. But then again, my cover letters mentioned that phone connection wouldn’t be the best mode of comms with me.
Filled it out, submitted, another gov’t conflict of interest statement signed, scanned, sent—more emails…then nothing much really.
To this day, I’ve only had one phone conversation and that wasn’t an interview–just letting me know about another form headed my way that needed immediate attention. That was over a month ago now.
Most of the positions that I ever heard anything back about have since been reorganized and I was kindly asked to resubmit.
just my 2cents.
