        They see something they like. If there was truly a problem with the first one you wouldn't be in your position. Obviously go in there with confidence, and don't let their tactics wear you down so that you change your story.

        The process is definately slow, I'm approaching the two year mark.

            • Well it's official. I'm out. Good luck to all. No big surprise here. I told you guys back in Dec. that I failed the poly. I was just waiting for the letter.

              This is to advise you of the action taken on your application for the Criminal Investigator (Special Agent) position with the United States Secret Service.

              Your application was reviewed along with those of other qualified applicants. I regret to inform you that, after careful consideration of your application, you were not selected to continue in the application process. I would like to emphasize that this decision is not a negative reflection of your qualifications. The United States Secret Service receives a vast amount of high quality applications. Many qualified applicants are not selected, simply because the number of well-qualified applicants exceeds the number of available vacancies.

              Thank you for your interest in the United States Secret Service. We wish you success in your employment endeavors.

                I was told at HI they were hiring for attrition at this time.

                  Sorry to hear Kansan. Best of luck in your future endeavors.

                  Regarding hiring, I would expect the same rate of hiring we've seen for the past year or so. Accounting for attrition. I also thought DOJ is facing larger budget cuts than Homeland Security which is probably the main reason they are seeing a freeze. FAMS just posted their opening on usajobs as well I think. Either way all signs point to Homeland security being relatively unaffected. Plus 2012 election year.

                    I don't see any statement on there that shows a negative response to your polygraph. I am just reading that you weren't selected to move on because their are other qualified applicants. Can't you just reapply after a year?

                    • So, nobody has told me I passed my poly, but a SA contacted me and said he was starting a BI. That has to mean I passed right?

                              I had my poly early in January and was met by a SA in early February who said he was handling my BI. I have heard nothing since then. I am hoping a phone call is coming for medical but you never know. If you look at past timelines most applicants have their medical exams 1-2 months after poly.

                              Either way, the BI seems to be the standard for a successful poly -- congrats.

                              • I woke up this morning to find 6 emails on the most recent annoucement in my inbox. The first two said eligible-referred for selection. The next two said eligible-not referred for selection. The most recent two said reviewing applications. I am so confused now. Anyone else have this issue or any insight as to what all of that means?

                                edit:

                                I got all of these email's within 30 minutes of each other.
