        • Does anyone here live in MSP and can provide housing for 2 weeks. I need to be there by November 4th to EOD the next day.


          • raudy06 In the “Phone Call” If the preferred location are not available, and they offer you other different locations that you’re not looking for, Do you have to accept that location, or you have the option to go like Stand by until your preferred location becomes available?

            Anyone know how “LOCATION NEGOTIABLE” works?

              As far as I know location negotiable means you can request locations that are not posted and negotiate other locations other than your preferred. As for being on standby? I've heard of people doing so but God only knows how long you have to wait. They might request that you apply to a new announcement with your desired location.

              They will try to put u at the place they need u. Tell them u want certain places. They will prob say there isn’t a spot available. Tell them okay call me when it’s available. They will call u a few days later with better options

              Many questions have multiple answers...especially with the passage of time and changes. I suspect this is one of those "it depends" answers that change based on the needs of the service and the whims of the people doing the hiring.

                  I’m in the same boat waiting to have my Polygraph exam scheduled. That number you called were they able to help you clarify the status of your application.

                • dominicano just prepare for how easy it is compared to any oral board you did for local LE. Common sense questions, especially for LEO’s and way more relaxed.


                  • Does anyone know if your application can expire in two years without receiving any call? I have two months left until my two years applications is up and I haven’t heard anything. My BI still in progress after 9 months. So I still have the BI in progress, drug test and the call and only two months left. It’s really frustrating.


                    • Alright another question about the SI since I got my scheduled date as-well, late August.

                      Now I know some stuff is simply not meant to be disclosed but when it comes to the SI, you guys say common sense questions and whatnot, but would these questions also be considered something we should definitely "remember our responses to" say when it gets cross-checked at Poly?

                      Not implying to lie, but lets say you say that you like the color blue but then during poly you say light blue. Something along those lines? Just trying to prep.

                        The questions are scenario based as stated on their website. I didn’t encounter any questions that were anything other than hypothetical situations.

                        Stevent518 fair enough, so it is indeed like their site says so.


                    • Update: I received "the call" today! My Eod is November 15th! I decided to use my 24 hours to pick a location. We are thinking EL Paso Texas! Does anyone have any recommendations?

                        Congrats, Which port did you get offered exactly? I got the call a month ago but el paso wasn’t available so i chose the NM Santa Teresa

                        They didnt specify a port, just El Paso. I'm assuming the port will be random, due to El Paso having three ports Danieldv9

                    • Recent PFT takers**** is it a pass fail? or scored for push ups and sit ups. the website is not updated for the new regulations.

                        Its pass or fail, 20 situps, 12 push ups and the 5 minute step up test on a 12" step. Don't take the 5 min step lightly, its not hard but it can catch you off guard.

                    • @ 19-2 applicants for JFK port. I am wondering if anyone has received a call or email for the polygraph exam. I am in for 16 weeks since completing and passing the SI. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Good luck to all in this process.
