    Yea I was told about another class around Feb also. I'm doing my medic now so it might be better for me if it's next year idk. As long as I don't get a letter it's all good.

    a classmate in my medic class was just called yesterday morning to schedule his polygraph. So I don't think your behind...it's just how it's going. I know four different people in the hiring pool, and it seems everyone is at different stages of the process right now.

    Thumbs up

    Just did my poly today. It took about 30minutes to fill out a packet similar to our original packet but more indepth about illegal activities obviously. Then was lectured for about 45 minutes by the polygraph technician (from what I heard from other people who've taken various other dept polygraphs- they all do that to psych you out) and then the actual test took only about 30 minutes.

    So they know the test results immediately so hopefully it won't be too long until the psych test!

    anyone know when the next psych test might be? For the poly you will have to fill out another packet full of questions about you and your past. Then they will go over the questions with you one by one.

    from what i hear they still hire even if youve done some bad things. For example im 20 and in my younger days i used marijuana, i even stole a bottle of champagne at work (worth only about $21). when i take that poly i will be truthful. is my chances still good to get hired though?

    I'm pretty sure that's up to TFR what their tolerances are on certain things for the poly. I guess if you pass the poly you pass, but if you fail then you already know the answer. How far along are you in the hiring process, and do you have a poly date yet? From what the polygraph gal told me they have been polygraphing quite a few people a day over these last few weeks.

    How is that gonna work? The chief said he wanted a class in November and then another in jan/feb. What are they gonna do- ram a bunch of us through the Psych & Medical exam in time for a class? At the rate they're going I highly doubt it....but I'm still crossing my fingers!

    I had heard this past August from the Capt a class in October, and a class in Jan/Feb. I've also heard they are going to switch to the national testing network soon.

    Well Oct seems to be down the toilet already.

    Soo does that mean a class in Jan and another in Feb or just the one in Jan or Feb? Is this gonna be a double large class or they are gonna cut down on the total # they're hiring...?

    Grrr...

    They already have an October class starting this month. I know people in that orientation. I don't know what the funding/budget is like for them, so i'd have to say how many they hire depends on that and a few other things. Yes this process takes a really long time and it sucks waiting... but some other states it's even worse when it comes to the civil service exams. I know the wait is totally worth it, so just hang in there a little longer . Keep applying else where in the mean time I guess. Yes it's frustrating everyone want's a really good job!
