So I am pending my restricted rehire status and I am curious, my worry is my record card. I was NOT TERMED, I self termed after 2 weeks from surgery and gave notice and left the CareerStart program 25 days early. I was told I am restricted but I heard after 6 months it is lifted is this false? It has been over 14 months since I left (Dec 15th, 2008) The other question is how long does your record card really matter? I heard from people and even my manager after awhile I think like a year or so it doesnt matter, it's there forever but wont matter. My final question what is everything they look at to determine if the status will be lifted or not? What are some ways to tell if it's looking like a good outcome?
