    Perhaps, but if they are doing interviews through July (unless they mean both sets of interviews and the polygraph) then an early July start would be unlikely

    Another round of phone calls went out yesterday. I know a handful of guys who were called to go in next week for their background interviews.
    Good luck everyone. Looks like the calls are still ongoing.

    They are still screening applications and calling people as of today. They go through the end of the month.

    Haven't seen anything posted to this thread in awhile. I know there has been a lot of activity going on in the past weeks with background interviews and polygraphs. Just wondering if anybody has any updates on what's going on?

    The website says that background interviews will run through the end of June

    As far as I know they are still running backgrounds and poly's for at least another week. I had a background last week but haven't heard anything else so I am figuring I must have blown my interview since most other guys I know who had theirs and were called back were contact between 1 and 4 days to return for a poly. I guess I will be back in January to take the written and start the process all over again.

    I had my background interview two weeks ago. I have not been contacted yet to return for a poly however I'm staying optimistic that I will get the call. If not I'll see you guys again at the next written test.

    Tough news, sorry to hear it. I've been in the process a few times in the past, and don't remember them sending out bad news emails like that. Best of luck to you in the future process. Did you make it to a background interview?

    Yes, I got to the background but never heard back for a poly. I pretty much knew after a week of no return call that I was done. I have been through the process numerous times myself and knew if I didn't get a call back within a 5 day window that I was out. First time ever getting the tough luck letter though. Did you make it to a chiefs interview as I believe you said you got a background too?

    Yes sir, I was lucky enough to receive an appointment for a chief's interview for mid july. I'm not getting my hopes up quite yet. I have seen very good guys get chiefs interviews and get turned down. I'm very excited for the opportunity though. I'm still curious as to how many people are left in the process and how many recruit classes they are planning to have?

    Word is two classes with 15-20 recruits per. They are looking to hire almost 40.

    Talked to a couple guys last night who have a pretty good idea of what's going on and it sounds like there are about 160 people set up for interviews so I would say guys have about a 1 in 4 chance of getting a conditional offer. Not bad odds.

    1 in 4 chance is not bad at all. 160 people still sounds like a lot to me though, I figured they would be down to about 80 to 90. Anybody else on here have a chiefs interview scheduled? I have heard that the chiefs interview only last about 10 minutes, and they only ask a couple questions.

    I'm not sure how many people still view this thread, but for those still interested. I've heard for sure there will be two classes, one in mid September and another in mid October.

    Dude this is actually my first time up. I have been in the military for the last 8 1/2 years so I think that is helping me out. This whole process is new to me. What about u?
