    Does anyone know the turnaround time between doing the JSA interview and receiving further word, options to sign up for polygraph and so forth?

    I know a guy who was going Lateral who said he has yet to hear anything back. So you're not alone if you are wondering when they are contacting you folks.

    Anyone else get word they passed the JSA? They sent me an e-mail yesterday saying I had passed and that when they start doing backgrounds, it will be conducted in order of the lottery number for each candidate (obviously). However, they haven't yet started backgrounds but they hope to have people notified by early September for the October academy.

    I got news that I passed the jsa the day after I had it. Jkester have you taken the polygraph yet? I took mine a week ago. My priority number is 7 and I still have not heard anything on the background interview. I hope it is soon though!

    Yep, had my poly on the same day that I did everything else because I'm an out-of-towner. HR lady was saying it might be a hot minute on the Background stuff, only reason she told me that was because I emailed em. I guess the out-of-state folks will get a phone interview and those in state will get a knock on the door, or that's how they are making it sound anyway. I'm desperately hoping I make it in to the October Academy. You're the first I've heard from that is in the top 15, I'm secretly hoping at least a few decide they don't want it so I can get in. Hah!

    When I went through the last process I did my polygraph, then they did a phone interview with a background investigator. After that they came to my house and interviewed me and my girlfriend. I was an out of State tester. I was told my the background investigator they go to the homes of everyone that pass all the tests. The week before my in home interview they were out in California as well as Arizona. Btw I was lottery number 11 on the list in Band B.

    Ah well good to know then. This is what the e-mail said, "Once we reach your priority number, you’d have a phone interview with the investigator since you are out of state. Then the investigator would build your background file which would then be submitted to the Commission for review". So, at least now I know to keep the house nice and tidy. heh.

    Where do you fall this time around on the Lottery/Band FireMedic?

    If you don't get hired and the Civil Service says no to you, you get banned for 2 years from applying. I have since been hired by another department in my current state.

    The Civil Service Commission has a lot of that on their website

    Poly was about an hour and a half, and it really kind of depends on if you have any questions and how effectively you work with the polygrapher. Really the first hour is him going over the functionality of the test as well as some basic information. The questioning doesn't last that long.

    The JSA took about 30 minutes (once you actually go in and see her), again depending on how well you work with the Pysch lady. I could see how it would easily take an hour if there were a lot of questions on both parties side however.

    My whole process took about 5 hours, including driving time between sites and the wait time for people to be ready and what not.

    If you look at the Aurora Civil Service Commission website you can find a document that they have that lists what they can deny you employment for. I will search for it and post it if I can find it at a later date.

    Here is the link to the disqualifications for Aurara Civil Service. Its Under section 9. https://www.auroragov.org/cs/groups/...ent/007353.pdf

    I just got an email advising that the October academy has been moved to January 11th and they should start background interviews in September. Looks like the waiting game begins!!!
