  • Hi to all again,

    Its been quiet on the boards for a little bit....nice to see some posts up.

    Completed my meeting with my BI yesterday. Seems like she is a straight shooter. She made me fill out this 270 questionnaire, which was real quick. After that, she went over the paperwork and made sure everything was Kosher. My BI also checked out my facebook and she Googled me. Have to say I never had my facebook analyzed.

    I believe I got lucky cause she ended up scheduling me for the last three stages in the hiring process. I have my Poly on the 27th and my Med and Oral Psych on the 28th. To be honest, Im a little worried about the Poly. Not that I have anything to hide, but Ive never done one before. I was hoping that some of the folks on this forum would give me some insight into the Poly that BPD dose. Is it long? Dose the examiner ask a lot of questions? If you fail, can you retake it again? Just a overview on the Poly I suppose.

    Finally my BI mentioned that she is trying to get me into the Feb class. Hopefully the Feb timeline sticks.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

      There are no stupid questions, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots.

      • If you fail the poly you are DQ'd and can't test with BPD anymore, I think. I dunno I didn't fail it lol.
        Neither a Republican nor Democrat, both parties are hopelessly flawed.

        RIP to all my fallen brothers and sisters in blue I hope one day I can live up to your legacies because you live forever in my mind.

        To anyone non-LEO don't get it twisted. Us officers may disagree on politics, sports, and any other issue but we will always be brothers and sisters at the end of the day and have each others back. To think otherwise is stupid.

                • Thanks for the tips, really appreciate it.

                  One question though, do they let you know right there if you passed your Poly?

                  • Hey it's my first time posting here I took the written earlier this month come to my surprise she told me I failed by a couple of points. I was really shocked it seemed easy to me, I have taken several other civil service exams and passed all. I don't know what was so different about this one... But I'm definately going to retake the test in 30 days!

                      Sometimes they do sometimes they don't I guess it depends on the administrator.

                      • Hey Fellas
                        Just wondering if BI ever leave msgs on phones incase you are not able to answer your phone calls during the day because you are at work and dont have access to your calls. My part time job is tricky as i only can use my phone after hours. I have already handed my packet in and signed the Conditional Job Offer, just waiting for my BI. Any others did their psych end of October?

                            the meeting usually takes about 2 months to be scheduled, but it looks like they are getting a class together for dec, so they are probably busy with that. it wont to give a call to touch base and make sure nothing is needed at this time.
