I received a letter saying that I'd been offered and had accepted a position.  Later on in the letter it says that the offer is contigent upon successful review of OF-306 and SF-85.

 
In my case they did a background check over the next couple of days after I sent the forms in.  I know that because people that I listed on the forms called to let me know that I was being checked out.

Hi J smith...i started about 2 months ago at the USPTO. Nowadays they continue to do the background checks even once you start working, i guess they have too many applications to get to. But overall, aslong as you have a clean criminal background and there are no discrepancies in your application/resume, you should be fine. But yeah unfortuntely there is a possibility of something bad happening as in hire/fire...but nothing to worry about if you are clean and have nothing to hide. Lemme know if you have any questions.

Hey, yeah, we are ofcourse on training for 8 months. but almost 2 months into it, we have been assigned 2 cases for now, but no deadlines to finish them. Just to kinda get our feet wet...and apply whatever we have learned so far. It is interesting!
