I believe you get yours right away. I did but I was placed real fast. I heard something interesting too about all the leadership positions that's there's a lot open? StrangeI have a similar question, but for TLs. Once you are signed off, do you get the pay raise for TL right away or do you have to wait until you are placed in an area? So if I were to be "on the bench" and signed off, do I have to wait or do I get TL pay while "on the bench?"
