      How long ago were both polygraphs?

      OCN_1 one was 8 months ago and the other one was 6 months ago. I’m assuming within 2 years should be good ...

    For those who completed the poly with Atf and continued the process, how long after the poly can I expect to be notified of further action?

      For informational purposes,

      Received email my Poly was reciprocated. I had a DOJ Poly two months ago so that factored in I'm sure.

      I'm scheduling my medical. Any idea how fast things pick up after that? I accepted another position with DHS (which I'm grateful for) and EOD in July. It'd be an honor to get an an offer with ATF.

      adding to this: received my security packet today. I'm assuming that's pre SF-86.

          My experience was much different. They did not encourage you to hit the base numbers. In there eyes you left a much better impression if you pushed yourself and tried to excel at the PT test rather than take it easy and just skim by.

          Adrenaline54 I'm in Florida, and its been getting hot/humid out they've had people pass out during these even put in a 10 minute break between push-up/situp and run. I get it but this is still a test to get hired the last thing you want is someone getting seriously injured out there.

          I liked that they just straight told me hey this is the number you need, hit the mark, and keep it pushing.

          2 out of 4 the still failed so still ain't no cakewalk

          No doubt, I was just saying what my experience was like. I also did this in the midwest during the middle of winter haha. I also just realized that florida probably does not have any indoor tracks now does it...

          PTT completed. They gave us the minimums by age category and told us we can stop as soon as we hit the minimums. They were testing out a bunch of people and staggering groups in half hour increments. I guess it's dependent on FO, but the one here didn't seem to care whether you did 50 pushups or whatever the minimum was as long as you passed. It was also approaching 90 degrees as we lined up for the run. In any case, 1 step down, bunch more to go!

          Edit to add: Breaks were 3 minutes, and the time started when everyone was done. So if you finished early on sit-ups and pushups, you got longer breaks.

            Dumb question, I'm guessing the minimum by age are those that they have posted in their website right?

            Nice, well maybe I'll hear something soon then.

            Good luck in the rest of your process.

          PTT complete! Onto the next step!

          • Had my poly recipocrated and I'm pretty sure my BG (DOJ BG prior) will be also leaving only the medical next week for me. Didn't read anything about there being a psych. Problem is, FLETC is still closed.

              How long after interview result notification did you receive poly reciprocity questionnaire and final decision?

              HSIApplicant there haven't been any ATF classes at FLETC recently?

              To answer both:

              About a month from interview.
              A couple of days after I was told congrats and it was reciprocated

              To my knowledge, no. In about a month I report to Artesia FLETC so trust me I wish I'd get word but was told COVID really slowed stuff down in Glynco.

              Not sure where you are getting the info that FLETC is closed, because it isn’t.

          • Does anyone know if you’re required to attend the virtual Informational session in order to continue the hiring process? I got an invite but I’ll be gone for military leave during that time and don’t know if I’ll be able to get service to view it where I’m going.

              Just because how things change and to be on the safe side, I would ask your recruiter. The virtual session for the group I am in was voluntary. It was primarily to inform applicants on how their resume and required paperwork should look like once they received their link to apply.

          • Can anyone confirm for me please for GL-5 level, would I still need to finish my 4 year degree despite having military and LE experience? Thank you

            • How long did it take people to hear back after taking their poly? I was told 2-3 weeks and wanted to see if that was accurate.

                Same here only they had us do the PTT before the exam. The exam is definitely what I'm nervous about though.
