    I was told that I had a problem with one question and everything is on Quality Control hand, that was on November 23 (two months ago) and I haven't received anything. Firefox is right, will be over when is over... I am working on my plan B, C, D, E,up to Z just in case good luck

She drilled me for an hr and a half telling me that she can help me if i just admit what it was that was bother me. I told her what seems like 100 times that i wasnt hiding anything and i never admitted to anything. Do the examiners sometimes bluff trying to get you to break? ... she never gave me specifics just told me that i was hiding something. Thoughts??

      you ever see that show "wicked tuna"? thats exactly what you went thru... a fishing expedition. I had a similar situation, it would have been a bigger deal if it was within the first hour or if you were not honest, but then again what do I know... I am only in TSU since 12/27 (newbie) keep your head up and it goes for anything, keep calm and DO NOT OVER THINK, just keep swimming.

        • I am a bit confused today, I inquired about class dates today and they informed me that my file was no longer with TSU and was reffered back to the background investigation unit. All I can say is I am super frustrated.

            maybe it's their way of putting you back on the TSU list, maybe they will take you off the list, refer you back to background, re-certify, and then refer back to TSU? sort of as a way to "Refresh" your status? I don't know, I am just talking out of my arse :S Have you called any other department?

              I left a message for background to call me so we can get to the bottom of this. My first thought was that I was on a provisional clearance and now they are adjudicating it for final clearance but maybe that is just wishful thinking. I can't imagine they would find anyting in my background that causes concern, especially considering I already have a clearance with another agency and I've been a good boy all my life.
              Let this be a lesson to everyone, when they offer you a job take it!!

                Maybe your instincts about this will be dead on. In any case, hopefully they get back to you a.s.a.p. By the way, I would also email them, sometimes I find they tend to reply faster by email than phone call. Good luck to you, here's to hoping for the best.

                    That is absolutely a tactic they will use. The polygraph is a complete joke. It's even worse if you have an polygraph examiner who is in a bad mood. Read up on the polygraph. I suggest "The Lie Behind the Lie Detector." You'll see how from the moment you meet your examiner, they are lying to you to make you scared.

                        Unless you take a deferral. I heard back from Background and they just pulled it so they could update it as fully adjudicated and they said I will be placed back in TSU tomorrow.

                          • About to take the VBT/SI in a few days, any advice?

                            Also, are you video taped during the SI as well?

                            Thanks

                              • you are video taped during both portions of the VBT/SI. Use common sense, they dont expect us to know anything regarding the job but they do expect us to use good judgement. Best of luck
