After the interview, you get a yes/no within 48 hours. After that you do some paperwork online, that process takes about 2 or so days. Then you schedule your medical/physical at a medical center close to your home, and you schedule a strength test at a csx facility, I am from staten Island, which means you will go to Selkirk, NY for your strength test. I got both done last week. It's been a little more than 1 week now and I am still waiting on a response. If you pass all of that, you get contacted about a class in Redi center.
