          I highly doubt the questions or anything is "classified" because you don't have to be a security clearance holder to enter the process - but the proper legal thing to do is make candidates/applicants sign disclosure agreements.

          I'm going to take a wild guess because your post said "I never worked for the government" and they asked questions about selling secrets or sensitive information infractions?

      • The examiner told me it was impossible for me to have done what the question asked based on the fact that I have never been a government employee. I said no, several rounds and I was sure and wasn't thinking about anything else. The machine said a was "lying". Pseudoscience bull****.

          Just got my letter, I'm going to appeal this thing, horrible to say the least, and it seems like it's up to whoever is looking at it that day. At least they give you a chance to dispute it. We will see I guess smh.

          • It's been almost 3 weeks since I took the poly and did the medical, and I still haven't heard a word. I still have a star over my background and nothing over medical. I have a clean background, I'm a career LEO and the examiner told me off the record when the recording stopped after the poly that I had nothing to worry about. Medical was fine too. I'm wondering what's the hold up.

              Remember everyone's timelines are different. Also, while the tester for the poly may have thought things are fine, it's not ultimately up to him/her.

            I don't think I'm going to appeal. I have a state Leo job that I like. I'm just going to keep it. The whole thing has really turned me off to the job. So many hoops and so much time and money to get DQ'd by a bs machine.

                We have a few in our FLETC class that are Chicago Field Office.

            • Question for those that have received a call for the poly...

              Do they just give you a date and tell you to be there or is there some flexibility with it? My wife and I are planning a vacation for a week in June and I don't want to dump money on plane tickets only to have to cancel it and go to AC for a poly.

              • I just received notice to schedule my medical but still no word on poly. Anyone else in the same boat? Recently took a poly for CBPO, I'm assuming I will still have to schedule one. Any word if Detroit still has openings?

                  The vacancy posting mentioned that they could, if they wanted, use the results of another DHS-issued poly taken within the past 3 years. Since their window is actually 6 months for their own poly, I would try and push to see if they can use your CBPO results if they were within 6 months.

                  I got the call for the poly on July 13th and no medical yet. Detroit field office as well. I'm prior BP and current CBPO but I haven't taken a polygraph for the feds yet.

              • Has anyone appealed a poly decision and actually won and got another chance to re-take it?

                I got DQ'd for the Chicago Field Office because of a failed Poly I did October 2015 for CBP. I never got the option to appeal the decision for the CBP poly. I didn't really love the job either so I thought it was nothing since I read online over 65% fail their poly anyway. I never thought it would come back and bite me in the *** for a job i would really want to do. I did get a chance to appeal the FAMS DQ decision. I'm still waiting for them to give me a chance to prove I'm not a criminal.

                Since the Chicago Field Office has new hires training at the FLETC I'm guessing my chances are slim to none.
                Anyone on the same boat as me? Past or present.

                Good luck to all of you that made it.

                    Which office did you select?

                    Three days shy of two months since I submitted my eQip and still haven't heard anything one way or another.
