I appied for a position in Tampa Florida.I had a phone interview with Megan (501)905-4166. After the phone interview, Megan informed me that I would be a good candidate for the position, and I would be receiving a pre-employment package in the mail explaining the the training process with date, location and time of train. Training was to begin yesterday 6-1-10 I did not receive any information. when I attempted twice to contact Megan by phone she has yet to return my call. I am unemployed and this was a great opportunity for me

Thank You for your time
