      • The PHQ background investigation packet is very stressful, I think more so than CPD's PHQ will be I agree. Luckily I've got almost every previous employer to mail and fax the employment verification letter over to the MB. But still it's stressful damnit. I can't wait until October 30th when I finally drop mine off and get the PHQ packet, documents, and forms they require out of the way. The next steps will not be nearly as stressful and hectic.

        • Guys I hear ya, I am a couple steps ahead of some of you and I can tell you that putting that packet together was very stressful. I probably spent between 20 and 25 hours doing it in one week, and I still had to work that week. Basically every free minute I had for an entire week was spent putting a package together. Like all of you, the hardest thing to do was get the employer letters. I hounded and hounded my previous employers to the point of craziness. I was personally picked up all of my letters because I was determined to turn in a hundred percent complete packet. Just try to get through this, this is the hardest part, it's almost over.

              Negative. Academy is the hardest part. All you do is wait, front lean and try not to fall asleep.

              • I meant for the hiring process Bman.

                By the way, what do you mean wait? I keep hearing about this "front lean" in this and the CPD thread. Exactly what is a front lean? I'm assuming that it is a push-up position?

                  The front leaning rest position is the starting position of a push-up. Here's an example of how the academy might operate.

                  instructor: front leaning rest position, move!
                  recruits: yes, instructor/sir!
                  instructor: in cadence!
                  recruits: in cadence!
                  instructor: exercise! 1-2-3
                  recruits: 1!
                  instructor: 1-2-3
                  recruits: 2!

                  So on and so forth until the end of the exercise.

                          I suggest you call the Merit Board. I waited for more than two weeks for an email confirmation that never came. Luckily, I received a call from the CCSO asking me if I was still interested in the position. Those results are available in less than a week.

                            I took mine on Sunday the 12th and received the pass email on Tuesday the 21st late evening around 8pm. Following that timeline you should get yours tomorrow or by end of week latest. Some have gotten it after a few days and some after a couple weeks, there doesn't seem to be a specific date to expect it.
