    Yea I've heard the background takes 3-4 weeks, and the polygraph is about a month or so after. What the Capt told me, and how I interpreted it was how fast they move you through the process, and any hiccups etc is what class you might end up in. So in November, or January/Feb. Some people's background checks take longer than others. I got my TS/SCI clearence through the military, and it took about 6 months really in depth though.

    I just got my call from TPD yesterday to schedule the polygraph. I was starting to get nervous as it was about a month since I had gotten a call from the Captain saying that the Chief approved of our interview and was pushing me forward (and that was 3 weeks after the Chief's interview too!)

    Oh and I got an email from this HR person a little over 2 weeks ago stating:
    " Dear Applicant:

    Reference is made to your application for FIREFIGHTER.

    Your score is 70.

    You have passed the Physical Abilities Test. Your name has been placed on the eligible list as of 08/17/2010.

    Eligibility expires one year from the above date."

    I was thinking WTF?! But I guess that'll be a SNAFU... hopefully that'll be the only one!

    Oh dunno if it was mentioned: I asked the chief during his "any questions for us?" portion how many guys he was looking to put on. He said from then (august) til july of next year, approximately 70-80 guys. A hire in November and another in Jan/Feb. So that def gave me a big smile =)

    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!
