      Shark, regarding your questions, if they do have you do a polygraph, most likely, it will be somewhere close to where you live. As far as your PFT2, at some point you should receive a form that you have to fill out and mail or fax back to MHC that you can choose one of several locations from (I got a phone call from MHC saying that they sent me a form I need to fill out and fax back, and the PFT2 location selection form was one of them). Obviously choose the one that's closest to where you live. In the NE, the closest location I see listed on the form is Swanton, VT.

            • Just finished my medical! The doc said everything looks good, he saw no problems. So I guess now i just wait on the drug screen and for all my stuff to clear.

              • Ok guys. Question for anyone that can answer: While I was at the waiting room for my VBT/SI I spoke to a handful of people most of which had their poly's already scheduled.

                My poly has not yet been scheduled. I'm pretty sure there are still people going through that do not have to take polys. How would I know if I no longer have to take a poly? When my BI clears does that mean I will not have to take one? I've read that they send some people to FLETC and when they fail (60% of them more or less) they send them back home. How devastating...

                  I've not heard of anyone being administered a polygraph during the academy. I was going to answer that you'll know you won't need to take a polygraph when you are given a final offer of employment but based upon what you're saying that may not be the case.

                  Expect a polygraph at any time during the process. Chances are that we will take one, not the other way around.

                  Good luck.

                    I had two different background investigations. I did the first one in 2010 and was referred to TSU after it cleared. At the time, I was told I wouldn't have another one until 5 years after I was on the job.

                    Fast forward to Dec 2011. Phone rings, another investigator calls and tells me he has to schedule me to do another BI. I ask him why so soon, he says to update my info.

                    The day of the 2nd BI, I ask the investigator again, why is a second investigation being done if I just had one two years ago and was told in 2010 I wouldn't have another one until AFTER I had completed FLETC and was on the job for five years. He flips through some papers and says, "ah, here it is" and points to some code and says that code means its being done to increase my security clearance. He then went on to say that those are done either right before someone gets hired or right after they have completed FLETC.

                    The second BI went over the 2nd eqip answers I provided/updated in Sep/Oct 2011. In my case no major events or changes had happened (I didn't get married, didn't have any kids, nobody in my immediate family had died). The only thing that happened was that I had some neighbors move away from me and I got a raise/promotion at the same company I had been with since '02.

Trying to keep my fingers crossed that I get picked up after switching and nothing more is required or left un-done. I had to send 4 emails to MHC before they actually received my change request.
                      I would try calling, and just see what they say. it wouldn't hurt!
