I attended an interview invitational event three weeks ago and interviewed with an SPE.  Two weeks later I still hadn't received an email or phone call, so I called HR to check on the status of my application.  HR told me that my application was being reviewed by a Hiring Coordinator.  Does this mean the SPE recommended me?  And, who exactly is a Hiring Coordinator, is he/she a PE?
 
I still haven't received a phone call or email to fax in any background forms, so I'm starting to think my application fell through.  I'm actually surprised the SPE sent my application along, my GPA is pretty bad, and I felt like the SPE didn't really understand what I was talking about during the interview because his art was unrelated to my degree.

When I was at the USPTO HR Office the other day picking up some of my paperwork, the HR guy told me that they are in the process of setting up satellite offices where a patent examiner can just go in there and work at one of the stations.  He even mentioned that there should be one in Baltimore or something.  Just wondering if anyone else has heard of a pilot program or knows anything more concrete related to this that might be going on currently.  Thanks...

When I did a google search I found a few articles like this one online but nothing that was very current:

at a recent TC meeting the TC director was asked about this and said that while it's been discussed, it's not something they're currently working on setting up.  I also got the impression that when they do begin working on satellite offices, they are going to focus on west of the Mississippi...

I found out more info about what the HR guy was telling me.  He sent me an email saying this:
 
"There are numerous off site work stations throughout the greater Washington/Baltimore metropolitan area. I believe currently a patent examiner would qualify to tele-work after his/her second year. For you by then the need to tele-work may be even greater, and the agency may have even better innovations to this program."
