In most states an employer can make you sign an arbitration agreement as a condition of employment at any time during the employment relationship. The United States Supreme Court just handed down a new decision on arbitration agreements that go against employees, although I have not read the entire decision yet so I could not give you a complete analysis of it. Constraints on this process would likewise not provide for an opportunity to do so either. Long and short of it is that if you don't sign the agreement chances are you will be terminated, although it wouldn't hurt to ask if you could get away with not signing it.
