    Cool, thank you. I've taken a psych and poly before just never with this company. I know not many people are a fan of their written test so I wasn't sure if the same holds true for these. I wasn't aware they conducted psychs and polys either, I thought they just did their written tests. Both are done at their office in Schaumburg.

    Anthony,

    I was not aware they did their own psychs. When I took my psych with a department that used them, I was sent to Chicago to meet with a company.

    Psych is just like any psych. Walk in, fill out a form, maybe take a computer based exam then speak with the doctor.

    Poly on the other hand, I had mine in their office in Schaumburg. They gave me a packet with yes and no questions along with some questions you had to write in your answer. Once finished the Polygrapher reviewed my packet then asked me the questions he was going to ask me before hooking me up to the machine. Once hooked up he went through the test with the Se questions he asked 3 times and I was done.

    Dress appropriately for both, suit and tie or at least a shirt and tie.

    Hope this helps brother.

    I loved the COPS tests when I was testing. It is designed so that you don't finish each section. However, before I was eventually hired, I was able to finish all sections aside from the math (not my strong point). Most people I've talked to hated that test, but I was able to top 10 every list that I took with test. To each their own I suppose.

    They said they might be hiring..not a good sign but that could change at a moments notice.
    The guy with the teardrop tattoos took the cake

    Not something I'm willing to invest at this time, I have a few different companies that I love and will stick to departments that offer them. Unless there's a department I really really want that uses COPS, but I will be in a ****ed off mood when I walk in there for the written if that happens.
    My friend ONLY did cops tests for about 1.5 years, went to study sessions and ended up getting in the upper 90s on every test. After that he was in the academy in about 6 mos

    I was way up front by where they were all speaking. That test frickin sucked though. Judging by the ''winners'' in that room I'm not sure many are gonna be passing

    A lot of those sections are completely pointless, you're asking questions on history that would be better suited for a high school student because he just recently brushed up on history. A lot of that material some of us haven't studied in years or since we left high school.

    And if you want to make it that odd of a test with strange sections that have nothing to do with LE, I suggest giving applicants the option of purchasing a study guide specifically for that test.

    The class they offer in Schaumburg is not the same as if we actually were able to have a study guide to prepare somewhat. Irritated now.

    Well on the bright side, I know I passed the suburban PD written exam that I took this morning by one of my favorite companies so that's something to about!

    lol..I was getting angry today too. Seems impossible at first. I finished the last 5 sections on time after feeling the pace. You really have to fly through the test.
