I'm pretty sure everyone has to go through the PTA unless maybe if you've been a patent examiner before.  They hire people now based on PTA start dates.

Hi Satoman...are you in the PTA currently? When did you start? What Technology Center, or Art Unit are you going to be working in? Why is Walt an awesome trainer? Smiley Thanks for your input...

Who are you guys listing for the three required references for the application?

 
I just got an offer[1] and I'm pretty sure the fact that I even applied to the PTO is news to two of my three references[2]. Take that as you will.
 
For reference, I initially applied back in December and interviewed in January, but wasn't able to get all my forms in before the switch to the new hiring system (which necessitated a call to clear things up). Then the dates on the forms weren't current enough, which I discovered after calling in again a couple weeks ago. After I sent in the re-dated forms, however, it was only a week and a half until I got a firm offer. The hiring people were nice; they just seemed a bit overloaded (as I'm sure I'll be soon enough).
 
[1] With a June 11th starting date. Coming from academia, losing the summer is going to hurt. Wink
[2] Not that they would give me bad reviews, of course!
