I have a question about the endorsment process, I recently passed Friday July 12, 2019, but I haven't gotten any email nor feedback besides the test paper for pearson vue advising I pass the exam. Today (Saturday 13, 2019) I had my coworker already endorsed me and I documented my experience and supported the work experience with W2 forms. I went to submit, but the website advised I need to take the exam, Should i be concerned?

No need to be concerned, you just need to wait until you get your official email which can take up to 5 business days to be sent.
A short while after you have that, you'll be able to submit your endorsement application without error - then the wait begins which I actually find the hardest part!
Just a heads up for you... Don't believe the email you'll receive after submitting your endorsement application if it says the process will take 4 weeks - the endorsement queue is currently running very close to 8 weeks.

Somewhat concerned, but not overly. Sounds very much like a known problem, related to a recent "upgrade" (don't you, as a security person, *hate* "upgrades"?), which has been experienced by a number of people in a variety of ways.
The weekend will not be kind to you.
The problem *may* resolve. (Some mentions indicate a July 15 date.)
However, best to be proactive. Member support is fairly busy at the moment, but you might also contact any or all (I recommend all) of firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and/or firstname.lastname@example.org in hopes they can/will get your problem to the right person.
