    • Hey guys,

      Had my medical exam yesterday, everything seemed to go ok. Got a call this morning and was told that my poly will be next Monday.

      How's everyone else doing with the process at this point?

      • Process

        I got my medical, Psych and polygraph this weekend. My investigator told me that she will let me know right away if I passed or failed.

        I know I'm going to pass. I just took a polygraph for a job in Pa and passed. I work for an armored truck deliverying money and picking it up.

        You also have to take a psych and medical. Anyway, my investigator told me the next academy class is at the end of November. She stated that will probably be the last than the freeze may kick in.

        They want to have two classes before 2009, but it depends on how many applicants they get that pass and qualify..
        Exam - Passed
        Physical - Passed
        Written Psych - Passed
        Background Investigation - November
        Oral Psych - Oct 27th
        Polygraph - Oct 27th
        Medical - Oct 28th

        • Does anyone know how long it takes to hear from a background investigator? I've been waiting for about a week...about how long should I wait until I call?

          Hope all is well with everyone!

              November is the next class fellas. B'more trying to get at least 2 more classes. However, the next class is November. I know this from what they told me. Baltimore wants at least one more class definitely before 2009.

                  its nothing too complicated. i dont really remember exactly what is asked, but i do know that they ask simple questions to see how you answer, and the whole interview lasts about 15 mins.

                      Not complicated at all. The questions I remember included: Why do you think real estate in the city costs more than in the country? Why do you think we pay taxes and what is your opinion of them? Recite the numbers I'm about to say in reverse. What have you stolen before. That type of stuff. My psychologist creeped me out though. It was her demeanor more than anything. She was stiff as a board.

                              The three southern districts. I live in Mont. County so was thinking about convenience. Actually I don't care where I'm sent as long as it ain't the central.

                              • Icekold, why don't you want to be assigned to Central?


                                Also,
                                I've heard that if you're assigned to midnights it's permanent, but mornings and afternoons are rotating. I'm not familiar with this idea. Can someone clarify?
                                Does that mean you may work mornings for a while, then afternoons for a bit, then back to mornings?

                                Thanks
