    Good luck with that. It's a small port with limited turnover and whatever openings that do occur stand a good chance of being filled by Champlain personnel.

    Think of Champlain, Alex Bay and maybe Massena as the most likely offerings.
    Ok then! That's not very helpful. However, I do know as a female we are in high demand. Wishful thinking? Perhaps.

He said he tried everything to pass me but I couldn't give him anything any reasons to why I was reacting. Needless to say I'll wait to hear from MHC. Sucks they have to lose so many potentially good applicants due to failed polys
      You would think someone would question the validity of the machine, when you react to crimes and drugs but pass the truthful application. That seems like a major contradiction. Regardless of what question you fail, the lying on app will also have to be present. Did you ask him about this? I remember someone had a similar incident and the examiner gave some bs response.

      • Anyone else get the email about Duty Stations? Looks like they're trying to let people know about where they'll end up being assigned before actually finishing backgrounds. As a West Coast applicant, I was offered San Francisco which works for me even if that area is hilariously expensive.

          I won't get this email since I already have my EOD date but can you please tell me what it says about central east coast? Thank you.

            He didn't yell at me for swallowing but even though I did and could feel it mess up my rhythm. And yes I am not one to sit very still so I literally was fighting just to stay still because my body would twitch sometimes from being so stiff. But they say we want you to essentially act as though you are watching tv.... But they sit you in an uncomfortable chair wrapped up, fingers extended, can't breath like you would normally breath the whole process is a load of bs. I will say my examiner was a good guy we talked for awhile after and he was nothing but helpful when telling me what to expect next. @jl692013 he didn't give me any reasons as to why I was able to pass questions about my application and not about the other stuff.

            • Hey guys so I got an email today giving me all the details to submit my e-Quip, however it says a "response" is due June 8th. Is that the date I need to actually submit it? That seems really fast considering how much information is needed and my Vbt isn't even until June 25th. Any info is appreciated!

                I believe it is. My E-quip had to be finished really quick maybe a week If I remember correctly.

                  I just had to ask! I guess he wasn't the first guy I had if you say he was a good guy/helpful haha. Anyway, I've said it before but I like to re-iterate. Having taken two of these now, I think one of the biggest factors is the examiner themselves. First one- awful, everything, whole experience blagh. Second one- still did not pass, but the examiner was excellent and the whole experience was totally different than the first, and I attribute it to his style of handling the test. I still think the whole thing is bogus but it makes it a little better if you've got a decent person working the voodoo machine!

                      The email I've received was only for the West Coast which states that the only available Duty Station out there at this time is San Francisco.

                            Yes it is, I've done an E-QIP previously for another agency and it was less than 10 days to complete. Thank goodness I can use the old one and just update it.

                            It hasn't even been 3 months yet and I'm this far in the process already?

                            I find it rather odd that I have 3 different steps pending/scheduled at the same time.
                            I guess they are really trying to push people through the process. They aren't even waiting to see if people pass/fail a step before advancing further.

                                That's probably why mine isn't working BC I just recently did one for the military. I forgot my creditials though. Our TL is similar.
