i've been trolling this for awhile, but I just got my call back for the dec 1st academy last tuesday since my interview last year. Talk about a crazy wait. I turned in my background and now have a polygraph test next week. I have nothing to hide, I'm just super nervous. I guess after that I get a medical and a chief interview?
Btw, Did everyone wear a suit to the polygraph (I plan to)?
yes wear a suit to the poly AND DONT LIE ABOUT ANYTHING
trust me....btw theres no chiefs interview the first class graduates next friday.....:)))))
The person I spoke to on the phone told me to wear something comfortable. My comfortable suit it is! I only have one anyways. I'm sure I'll be fine on the poly. I've got nothing to lie about. It just makes me nervous. I also have my medical exam on Monday.
It's all happening rather quickly but yet so slowly (considering the written test was in april 2010 lol). I'm just hoping all goes well in the next couple of weeks. :) I'm SUPER excited. SUPER.

I always wear suits to ANYTHING to do with a hiring process
and in regards to the wait, I applied in 2007 and finally took a test in 2010 and here we are.
looking forward to the academy, see you guys there!
Okay, so I admit... I ended up not wearing a suit. I figured since I called and the person on the phone told me to go for comfortable and nothing fancy, I should probably follow directions. I actually went with nice / presentable and comfortable. I also had a follow up for my medical exam and fitting right before it. I figured the fitting would be difficult with something fancy anyhow.
I actually told the police officer that was polygraphing me about the suit thing. She was telling me how much she hates when people do that and told me to never wear a suit to this thing unless I'm in trouble (something like that anyways). That'll just make this process more difficult because you wouldn't be comfortable.
I see the reasons for it both ways. Wear the suit because you always want to look awesome, no suit because you want to be comfortable for the polygraph.
I'm still really excited / kinda nervous. The academy is less than a week away! No more lonely desk job for me!
Heard a rumor of possible more hires off current list.... anyone have any info?? has anyone been contacted.
class of 12 starting possibly starting around February? waiting for paperwork from HR anyone else get a call to move on in the process?
has anyone else heard info or still in the process for upcoming academy?
Has anyone revived a call for the up coming academy? Or a call to take polygraph?
