    Default polygraph

    How long after the chief's interview do they schedule the polygraph? I had my interview on the 7th and got a call about further testing i.e.(polygraph, physical, and stress) around the second week. Just curious...

    Hello Everyone,
    I received the email (4/8/2012) from HR stating my score and that my application was being sent to TFR for review. Does anyone know about how long it has been taking TFR to send their background packets out thru email? I only ask because this forum has been open for quite some time and may be outdated.

    Hey Ghermangsr,
    I'm in the same boat. I recieved the same email. Im guessing we won't hear anything back or recieve the background packet until after they quit accepting applications on June 29th. Might even be after they quit accepting the supporting documents on August 3rd. The wait is killing me lol. Anyway post up if you recieve anything. Best of luck!!!!

    I got 80s and 90s on the video test but from what I've heard Tampa doesn't really care about the scores they hire based on experience. That's just what I've heard. Goodluck!!!

    Same here. Did well in everything except the human relations portion. What score did you get in your email from Tampa?

    I got a 70. I called HR and asked how I got that score and she told me it was my "education level" you either get a 70 if you have only highschool or a 90 if you have a college degree.

    Hey I called yesterday and thats what I was told. Human resources said they've been busy with the RNC and haven't even looked at the applicants. She said we should hear something in September.

    If you don't mind me asking Leatherhead3, what scores did you get on your Fireteam? Hopefully I hear something soon also.

    No problem on the human relations, mechanical, and reading I scored around 81 and scored around 96 on math. The deadline to turn in the background packet is oct 5th so you'll probably hear something soon. Goodluck!!!

    I got my packet this afternoon at about noon. Good scores, mine were actually quite similar to your scores. Reading was high 90's although. Hopefully the process moves along a bit quicker after this. I don't see any more RNC's disrupting it in the future.
