Background Check And Drug Screen for Gigafactory Job

edited November -1 in General
Hi all, recently I was offered a position at the gigafactory. Everything sounds great it all starts coming together I'm working with a recruiter etc etc. The day I accept the offer I get a few emails talking about background screen and a drug screen, cool no big deal no issues here. I complete the background information on a Thursday and the drug screen Friday morning. Now I'm just in a limbo of sorts I've put in my notice at my current job but have yet to hear back from virtually anyone. I've texted my recruiter a few times to only get one very bland response, and since he has virtually vanished no replies etc. Should I switch it up and email him or keep on keeping on? My issue is I'm packing my entire life up to move 2,000+ miles away but I'm getting radio silence from the other end, it is incredibly nerve wracking... Timeline is about 11 business days as of now.

    Um, anything in your background report that might be a problem?

    Not that I can think of no. Current Employer did one when I started there without issue so I can only imagine a 7yr dip wouldn't bring anything up, considering I've been there for 6yrs.

    Never give notice until you get a signed job offer with no contingencies -- this is true for any employer.

    Whatever happened with your job offer and how long did they take to get back to you?
