Don't schedule the process, just go there and sign up, you'll get your paper certificate today and card in a week or 2.

3-6 weeks. Unless you know someone high up in the TWIC office you have to wait just like everyone else.

Just depends on how busy they are I think. Last summer I went in on a Monday and had my card by the end of that week. I've also heard of it taking up to 2 weeks though.

If its for an internship or something similar at a plant, I've heard of people getting by without it the first few days.

There's also one by Sherwood and airline. I'd try that one if I were you. They normally aren't as busy as the one in industrialplex.

Just got one a few weeks ago. It took about 2 weeks. Register online before going to office. That way, after you go to office you could go online and check the status and get back there for them to activate the card, instead of waiting for them to call you. I don't think they are too prompt in notifying you by phone.

Make sure you have proper documents before you go to office, and they don't take cash, just credit/debit cards or money order.

And I don't think that the paper receipt is accepted at some places, as if they have a biometric reader, you card is needed to get that info and also the card has a pin number you must input.
