  • Does anyone have the full list of information we need to gather for the PHQ? I remember seeing a post in a different thread but can’t find it now.

    thanks!

    • I did my PHQ early August and was just wondering how long it takes to hear back about it?

        maasha1 I submitted my PHQ August 2nd and Kentech sent me an email for their questionnaire on August 24th and I have my home interview on September 4th.

    • If i haven’t heard anything about it by now, is it safe to assume i wouldn’t hear anything at all?

        Im in the same boat as you, took the PHQ August 3rd and haven't heard anything from Kentech or CPD, makes me wonder if it is by last name like at the power test where I was a W.

    • Timeline:

      Exam - May 5th
      Lottery # 3XX
      POWER - July 14?
      Processing - AUG 25 (missed the prev processing date due to wedding)
      PHQ - Sept 1st

      Hoping to keep moving along here. When I submitted my PHQ I got a ‘STATUS: Submitted’ with the date and time. Is that really all it notifies you that you completed it fully?

      • Got contacted by Kentech a week ago about the questionnaire thing, waiting for the call from an investigator to set up a home interview. For anyone that took their PHQ around August 4th my last name is a W and my lottery number was 2425 so that might answer some questions about how long it might be for you guys whether its last name or lottery number.

          I did my Kentech questionnaire August 24th from the August 4th PHQ. I had my home interview on September 4th. My last name begins with a J and lottery number was in the 5000's. Just waiting for them to finish my background and call me for the polygraph.

      • Anyone else still waiting on Kentech? My lottery number is 1469 (out of 3,720). Last name starts with T. I passed my power test on 7/15/18 and submitted my PHQ on 7/31/18.

          Yup. High 200s here and had processing June. Is this your first test cycle? It’s my 3rd

      • Does anyone know if the psychological people have access to your background? Like if they ask have you ever been arrested do they already have this info?

          When I did my psych for a different department they told me upfront they have the notes from the background investigator and the results / questions of polygraph exam. So they will know if you lie / cross reference your answers.

          of course they do, why wouldnt they have this info? a psych exam isnt just to see if you are sane, they want you to answer to the reason why you made certain choices in life.

      • I received an email today from Kentech saying that they finished my background and sent their report to CPD. Does anyone know how long before CPD contacts me to set up my polygraph appointment?

          Depends on everyone. I waited 3 weeks for mine while my friend has been waiting almost 2 months for his from the December exam. He called HR to confirm and they said still do this step by rank.

        • Does anyone have advice on getting neighbor references? I just moved this month and literally do not know my neighbors in my building. I physically haven’t seen them.

            You don't necessarily have to know them. Even though I lived at my place for 3 years I didn't know any of my neighbors. I just walked down the block ringing door bells and put down the first 4 that opened the door. I explained the situation to them and they complied. Actually my next door neighbor didn't want to give his phone number so I skipped him.

            I didn't know ANY neighbors. I walked up and down my alley until I saw someone, introduced myself, explained the situation and hoped they wouldn't think I was a weirdo when I asked for their address and phone number.

        • Exam- May 5
          Power- July 21 ?
          Processing- July 27
          PHQ- August 4
          Kenteck contact - September 16?
          Home interview- September 26
          Poly- Oct 7
          lottery number - 4xx

          So far so good with me. Just wondering the wait time after the Poly.

          • I just set up my KENTECH interview for next week. I’m out of state. The guy goes, “can you come in October 8th at 9am?” This is at 6:45 pm, I said, “tomorrow?” He goes “yeah.”

            I tried not to laugh. Sorry no, I can’t fly across the country and interview in 14 hours. I’m flying in next week. Nervous about getting together all this paperwork.

              You should've just red eyed it over here, got ready at the airport and went straight to your interview lol

          • If this is your second time going through the process, do you skip Kentech and get assigned to a CPD investigator? I took my IPT on July 28 and submitted my PHQ on August 3 and I haven't heard anything from Kentech or CPD.

              I made it through the entire process and was offered a spot for the academy in June but I didn't take it because I was considering other options at the time. Boy, that was a mistake.

              I'm glad you asked that question, I was wondering the same. I still have to take my poly for the first round which is set for October 19.

          • Yesterday I had my polygraph, I was definitely nervous. The questions we asked three times in different orders. My plographer said I had a slight response to a question and if I need to have it done again she will let me know when I have to come back. She said it was a slight response and I shouldn’t have to have anything to be worried about but she’ll let me know if I have to come back and redo the questions does that mean that I passed or failed . Also when I was leaving she asked me if I signed up for the December rounds and I told her yes and she said OK so I’m not sure if I passed or failed the polygraph I just know I answered it honestly and to the best of my ability and I just feel kind of an easy about what happen yesterday does anyone have any insight

              There's been people who have had really good experiences with the poly and never got a call to go to the FPT. Don't stress it, no one really knows. However, if you don't hear anything and end up taking a second poly try not to be nervous you gotta be calm and confident with your answers. Good luck!
