Received my conditional pre-approval for global entry renewal and there are 0 available appointments for the next 12 months either via Zoom or at my local airport. Any tips on when to check or how to get one? Current authorization expires in January.

I completed my interview via global entry upon arrival. Flawless for me and no appointment needed. Availability may vary as this was pre-covid.

Yikes, you actually need an interview? My wife and I just did ours last month and had it approved via email within a week.

Oddly yes. Not sure what might have flagged it as most of my travel was Canada, but I did do a trip through Asia. No criminal anything in my background.

Update for anyone curious, it looks like they extended benefits for global entry for 24 months after your expiration to allow time to schedule an interview.

Hi All,

Had an interview for a Business Ops Associate role today and asked what the next steps were and told it would be a slack interview after doing an automation in Zapier test. I was told I'd have time to do the case when I said I never used Zapier before. Then suddenly they have a sudden rush to hire and email me at 11 pm their time asking in the morning to have the test completed and an interview later in the day followed by final interview Wed?

Any idea whats going on here?

How do you encourage your partner to take up more slack in household duties? He’s not a “lazy” person but just doesn’t consider doing any chores. I’m tired of asking him to do a chore everyday. Today, instead of folding the small load of laundry I left on the sofa before logging into work early he just sat on top of it...the whole day (mind you he’s not even working today). Dishes will be left in the sink until I go to clean them, things that I’m too short to put away will be left [continued]
