    Let us know how it goes. The current weather can definitely make scheduling challenging.

    IA contacted me last Wednesday. I'm not the best interviewer but with enough preparation I'm sure I'll do fine.

    Completed the medical, polygraph and psych exam in the last couple weeks and I think they all went well so now just waiting to hear back for the final interview which will probably be in late April I was told.

    Was also told by one during the process that about 60 will go to chiefs interview and 50+ will be offered positions so that he has some options for those he thinks fit best.

    Used to be, you make it to the chief's interview, you pretty much have the job. Just don't be a complete idiot and you should be good.

    We just got a new chief, so he might do things differently.

    I just saw that Sam Heaton was promoted and replaced. A little bit concerning, but I'm sure it won't make a big difference.

    I remember him giving a brief speech prior to the written exam. He seemed like a good guy.

    They want me to re-do the poly but other than that everything seems to be a go for the chief's oral.

    How has everyone else fared thus far?

    Hey @Mustang281. Re-do the poly they told you the reason ?? Did they tell you if you passed the phych ? Did they give you a tentative date for the chief interview ??


    I haven't heard anything, not sure if that's a good thing .. Waiting on that call .... Has anyone been contacted for the chief's interview ??

    The Polygrapher said he wanted to 'zero in' on a couple of the questions in a follow up visit. I haven't heard anything regarding anything else.

    The academy starts in less than 7 weeks. They started contacting people a couple months ago, if you still haven't heard anything you need to call ASAP.

    My mistake. I thought you were implying that you were waiting to schedule the poly/medical/psych.

    If it's been a month I'm sure they would of already informed you if you failed a portion of the process. At this point I would presume that no news is good news...

    I certainly hope so.. the polygraph is very intimidating even if you're being 100% honest .. hoping it all goes well for you ..
