  • Does anyone know if your references are mailed a packet of questions? I had my meeting on 1/13 and I do not think any of my references have received anything yet.

      Yes they are mailed a questionnaire. I couldn't tell you the exact questions they are asked because I've never examined them myself. What I can confer is that the continuance and timely completion of your background investigation is contingent upon how quickly each reference can fill it out and mail it back. Personally I'm going to reach out to each of my references and give them a friendly reminder to please complete it and send it back asap. I think it would be in every candidates best interest to do the same. Just a suggestion.

        Yes, I definitely agree. I am just wondering how long after your interview should they expect to receive something. I know it obviously can vary just curious if anyone had any insight. Thanks and good luck.

          I don't know how long it takes for them to mail them, I would imagine fairly soon. If anyone hears from their references that they received a questionnaire please let us know so we have a general idea.

            My reference just got the questionnaire, not sure what the questionnaire consists of, but he did receive the questionnaire a week after I met with my B.I.

            • Just got an email to attend a general background meeting, has anyone on here done this already? If so, what should I expect? Hopefully I get assigned a BI

                Congrats!

                Was this *instead* of getting a phone call to meet somewhere?

                  Wow that was quick. Now I'm wondering what the delay is...

                    I'm just hoping those of us who haven't heard yet are accidentally on the bottom of a big, big pile of manila envelopes. ;-)

                      I have a friend that graduated the academy that got this, but yes, I sent my packet off on the actual due date (12th of January), so my packet must of got there with a lot of other people so instead of trying to do everyone one by one, I believe what happens is the ones continuing to backgrounds would either get assigned a BI and then do the hair sample etc, or you go with a group of people (triage) to do this, to screen out more people at a time then get your BI, check your email, if you dnt get a call you might get scheduled for triage before they assign you a BI, I hope I get everything done in time for the march academy,

                        Yeah good luck. I've actually met with my BI. Now I'm waiting for my references to get contacted.

                        • I know the process changes from time to time, so I dnt want to fully depend on the knowledge of my friend that graduated the academy, had anyone went through this recently? I wonder if they assign you a BI there and what other things to expect

                              Im assuming every process is different, I have a friend who just got set his dates for poly and so on & his reference haven't received anything so it all depends on who your working with and how fast you both can get through the background.
