  • im central east coast applicant as well, have my poly on wed, about how long does the whole thing take for those of you who have taken it already?

    Comment


    • This may sound like an odd question, but does CBP outsource the polygraph examination or is it entirely in-house?

      • Took my poly today and he failed me. He told me I had deceptive activity when asked about info on the eqip, and when I told the 100% truth on every page of that form. I was nervous during the test so that probably had a lot to do with it.

        He said there's a chance I could get a retest if MHC doesn't agree with what he sent in, but I doubt it.

        Was really hoping I'd get this job too, but guess it wasn't meant to be.

        Good luck to everybody else still in the process.

          Same geo as yours. My poly interview took a little over 4 hours.

          I am sorry to hear that, nervousness does it for most of the applicants. Now that you had gone through most of the steps, you should be more ready next time you apply.

                    • That's strange New York. My instructor told me to let myself be nervous. She said the polygraph reads your autonomic nervous system. I.E. Things you can't control such as: sweating when it's hot, stopping your heart from beating, etc. She said being nervous wouldn't affect the results. Sorry to hear about it man.

                      • The thing that annoyed me most was him saying I was trying to beat him. Pretty much saying I was trying to beat the test by lying and thinking I can get away with it. When I had nothing to hide in the first place.

                        Because I had slight movements in my legs during the test, he said I guess you aren't cut out to be a federal law enforcement officer because they have to stand in one spot for long periods of time. When I'm more than capable of doing that.

                        Just very odd how they grade this test.

                          Oh man, that sucks! Sorry to hear! But don't totally lose hope just yet. The examiner doesn't fail you on the spot--his results get sent in for review and MHC makes the final decision on whether or not you continue the process.

                          • Can you appeal the results if they fail you? I really don't believe in polygraphs. It's pseudoscience.
