  • Update:

    Wrapped up medical and drug test. Does anyone know what happens after drug test? I'd think that'd be the last requirement from the applicant.

      • How long between completing the PTT and getting the interview invite?

          About a month until formal PTT result notification, then another month for interview notification which is only a 2 week heads up

      • Exam complete, hopefully we get results soon!

        • So I have read and been told numerous different things on polygraph reciprocity. Is it within 1 year, 3 years, 5 years? Does anyone have a straight answer?

            I don't think anyone knows, even ATF.
            It might depend on your background and poly office.

        • PTT and SA exam knocked out. Both were pretty easy although the exam had a ton of annoying reading.

          The SA's at the PTT said that interviews will happen towards the end of summer and that the entire process from beginning to EOD is about 1.5 years.

            NYC1175 I'd say it was fairly comparable to the (now old) HSI test math portion if you ever took that.

            bondman007 good to know! I did fairly well with those questions. I figured it's somewhere in between the HSI/ATF guide and the Petersen book.

            Thanks for your input checkmate. Can I ask what you mean about annoying reading? Trying to study as best as I can for it.

            ^ Annoying reading meaning you have to pay close attention to some very wordy paragraphs and decipher them for answers. I don't know how to really say it beyond that and still not disclosing test info. It's not overly complex but just annoying quantity-wise if that makes sense.

        • Applied for the ATF agent vacancy for experienced applicants and I’m scheduled for an upcoming info session. Anyone else on here doing the same?

            Just had my virtual info session today. Pretty straight forward info, hiring process and pay info. Sounds like 11-14 months for EOD.

            Wow that’s a lot faster than the traditional hiring timeline

        • Interviewed April 6, any idea on how long until I hear back on results? Is it a good sign I haven’t gotten a rejection email yet?

            Yes it's a good sign. I waited roughly two months. After the interview- things picked up for me.

          • Interviewed in February, submitted background information packet a few weeks ago, and was just contacted about previous polygraph(s) in regards to possible reciprocity. Fingers crossed, but seems like nobody is receiving reciprocity at all.

              Does the ATF have a high poly failure rate like CBP?

              I think they all have high failure rates across all agencies.

              • Does anyone here have/know an ATF Special Agent study guide link? Applied in 01/2021, passed the PTT a couple of weeks ago, and now about to take the proctored entrance exam.

                  Just google "ATF Study Guide." It's literally the first link that comes up.

              • USSS polygraph will not be reciprocated for those who are wondering

                  Damn I really don't want to take another one ever again.

                  Wow , did they say why ? I wonder if it’s because USSS is DHS and they want a DOJ poly ?

              • For anyone taking the PTT it might depend on what office you're taking it out of but when I took mine they only had us reach the required number of push ups and sit ups so we could save our energy for the run. If you suck at running keep practicing because some people in my group were cutting it close with their run times.
