    Can someone explain the step test? How many? And in what amount of time?
    DMBROKS, you probably didn't get a chance to read this. Read it so that you have more understanding. Others also provided the summary already, good luck, it wasn't that bad..

After you described your situation, it makes me wonder if G doesn't start our background until AFTER the poly. Mine says in Security Office, and you might be in the same shoe and since they are going over your eqip during the poly and pretty much asking questions on your eqip, I really think the background might have not started yet.


        They started mines already, My supervisor told me that they called him already asking about my Army career and was I a team player etc etc.... Im guessing that they go hand and hand. Before I started the poly, when we went over E-Qip's, I even had to answer some questions about something on my credit report. I didnt feel as if they/she was trying to fail me. Like I said they will give you time to fess-up about anything. My advice would be to use that time wisely and come clean about whatever.

          Lucky you. No word from my BI yet 3 weeks after the poly. I have no idea what's going on.

              Hi this is my first post on this board, I am fairly far along in the process I have passed everything including the polygraph, I told the truth. The only thing left is the background investigation. After reading BassJunkies post I am extremely disappointed. I hope thats not true... I was completely truthful with the man during the polygraph examination and I did do marijuana twice about two years ago.. I passed the polygraph and I was extremely relieved, now I have to worry about this. If anyone may have any thing to say about this it would be much appreciated. I am praying that this may be an isolated incident and maybe its not the same for everyone.
              What were you told after the exam? Were you told straight up that you passed? Not to discredit BassJunkie but I have never seen the 3-year rule in writing on anything official. I'm sure he was told that by someone who knows what they're talking about. At the same time, I may be wrong, but I feel like a polygraph can be used as a tool of discretion. If the poly examiner likes you and thinks your honest he's probably gonna try hard to pass you. If he likes you're a low life, and reads anything that can be interpreted as deception on your graph, then he'll probably fail you. Every situation is different. How long has it been since your poly? I read somewhere on here before that if you pass the 2 week mark then you've more than likely passed your poly. Hope that helps.

                  You could always contact someone you put on your E-Qips form and see if they have been contacted in any way from a strange number, asking questions about you.

                  • It's amazing and almost incredible how the marijuana (an illegal drug) is so common. I've never used any illegal drug. I think that drug use could be an important factor that may disqualify a Federal Agent applicant. Remember that part of the BI is to know our friends and people around us and I think the atmosphere of marijuana should not be very good.

                        You make it sound like someone who has used marijuana has to hang out with drug dealers all the time. The drug is everywhere. You can look at the amount of possession arrests each year and determine that quite easily. There are some states where getting caught with "personal use" amounts of marijuana simply gets you a fine. Not all that different from driving around without a light above your license plate. I believe our country recognizes the difference between smoking a little bit and taking hits of acid, etc.

                        With all that said, it is an illegal drug and we spend large amounts of money to control the substance each year. I wish I could take back the couple times I have tried it. I can't. But I dare you to prove you will be a better officer than I am because I have smoked a couple times.

                        • [QUOTE=Sick of being a Army Grunt.. ( I've been to war 3 times). You may have seen the thumb tack thing, it wont work.... Clunching your butt..... It wont work! I would just say to any that reads this and havent taken the poly yet just be honest! I admitted to smoking the grass a few times, but that was 9 years ago in high school before I joined the Army and became a "man" maybe I will pass, or maybe they will fail me for that!


                          I do respect that you were in combat zone but let me assure you - you are not the only one who participated,I know exactly what the real war looks like,what it smells like ,and what it feels like,so please stop poking my eye with your experience.
                          With all respect sincerely Americoza.

                          • DMBROCKS,

                            What are you going to say when they ask you why you did not put you used Marijuana in your background forms?? They will ask if you purposely lied on your forms.

                                I did not lie on the forms because they asked about usage in the past 7 years...and I tried it a long time ago. So I will be honest.
