  • Jade,
    The test was something interesting for sure.
    Drove an hour to the clinic. Was told my packet hadn't arived yet.
    Called MHC, they tracked the package and told me it wouldn't arrive until tomorrow. (Friday)
    I told them I go back to work tomorrow, and it would have been nice to know before I drove an hour.
    They worked with me and got me to a different clinic another 40 minutes away.
    Got there and took the test.
    Hour and a half drive home. LOL

    what an eventful day it has been.

      Congratulations on the new life journey buddy! Did they give you time to think about the port you wanted, maybe to consult with wife, girlfriend, ect?

        • Hi everyone! I've been following this thread for a while as I am currently in the process. I would have posted sooner but I was waiting for my account to be verified. I got the call a week ago for a start date at JFK on July, 14th with an academy date of August 14th. Just wondering if anyone else was starting those dates.

          I know a lot of people were asking about time frames so I'll do my best to remember everything. I took my written exam on September 25th last year. Once I was going through the process, I was informed by others that they don't necessarily go in a specific order. For example I took my PFT1 I think somewhere in February. My VBT was April 3rd. My polygraph was May 30th.

          I then received a phone call to meet with my background investigator last Monday, June 16th. I met with him June 18th, the same day I had my drug test scheduled for. I received a phone call from the hiring center on my way to the drug test and I explained to her I was on my way to the test. She told me to call back later that afternoon. We played phone tag for two days. I finally got someone on the phone, Friday the 20th. They offered me the job that day. I believe that was why they called two days earlier but I hadn't had my drug test AND I just met with the BI. He literally only started meeting with people that day and I was already offered the job. All week mutiple BIs have been meeting with references although I already received the call. I think they are really pushing to move people through. My PFT2 was scheduled for July 2nd in harpers ferry, VA, but I asked if I could reschedule due to prior plans. It was moved to July 10th in Plattsburgh, NY.

          If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask!

She was not my BI and all the email said was I needed to resubmit some of my scanned documents. "Your e-QIP SF-86 was received electronically; however, you will need to make the following correction before IA can initiate your BI".

            I was contacted about 6 weeks later from my Polygraph. Hope this info helps.
            Natalie contacted me about the same thing three weeks ago. I uploaded the new forms the same day. Did you get any confirmation that it was received and acceptable before you were called for poly?

              Congrats, sounds like a roller coaster I'm also central/east coast! What ports did they offer other than JFK?

                When my IA person contacted me again due to corrections, I corrected Tuesday and was given a call for poly today.

                Note: Make sure that whoever contacted you is from the Office of Internal Affairs and not Pre-Employment Clearances & Scheduling Branch (PCS). (It should say on their signatures)

                  My issue is, I have yet to receive my polygraph results which I took on May 27th. Has anyone else waited that long? The examiner wouldn't tell me one way or another, only told me that I seemed to have issues with a few questions and would have to be reviewed by Quality Control. I was of course discouraged, but I though "it is what it is".

                  Anyhow, he said that I should hear something in 3-4 weeks. Tomorrow it will be a month, so I emailed my HR contact and she would only say that they do not yet have a part of my background investigation (and that they will contact me once they received a "background investigation final determination"). Has anyone else experienced anything like this? At first I just shrugged it off but the longer this goes on the more anxious I get, and the greater sense of doom I feel. It was also a Secret Service guy who tested me, I wonder if that would make it go slower? Just knowing how many on here heard from their BI within a week or two after the polygraph, is what is discouraging.

                  I wish I could just know one way or another whether I passed or failed. Making one wait this long seems cruel! LOL

                  Good luck to everyone else in the process.
                  FDriver, I'm essentially in the same boat as you waiting on my poly results and examiner didn't advise me one way or another of the results. I've been waiting 2 months so far. On another note, I had a BI done 3 years ago when I applied initially so I'm not sure if they're going to utilize that or start a brand new one. That said, I'm not clear on if I should be receiving a call from a BI soon after as most the other applicants who passed have.
                  Anyway keep us posted on how and when you receive your results. I'll do the same.

                  Congrats to everyone moving along in the process. It's inspiring to know folks are progressing!

                  • Does anyone have a number where I can contact IA? I passed my polygraph on June, 16th and haven't heard anything from a BI or anyone since. I would just like to know what's going on. Thankyou.

                      I was never contacted again reference forms needing to be updated. But if you want to confirm Natalie received the docs you can call her at 952-857-3034. Im guessing the last 4 of your ssn is between 3344-4999. She is our point of contact for BI concerns.

                              Anyhow, he said that I should hear something in 3-4 weeks. Tomorrow it will be a month, so I emailed my HR contact and she would only say that they do not yet have a part of my background investigation (and that they will contact me once they received a "background investigation final determination"). Has anyone else experienced anything like this? At first I just shrugged it off but the longer this goes on the more anxious I get, and the greater sense of doom I feel. It was also a Secret Service guy who tested me, I wonder if that would make it go slower? Just knowing how many on here heard from their BI within a week or two after the polygraph, is what is discouraging.

                              I wish I could just know one way or another whether I passed or failed. Making one wait this long seems cruel! LOL

                              Good luck to everyone else in the process.

                                That's a long wait, man. Did the poly examiner indicate at all a possible pass/fail, and have you been in contact with IA since?
