    Anyone know how long the backgrounds actually take? As in, when they start them?

    Also, provided everything is satisfactory in the backgrounds, what is the interview like? Just wanting to know out of curiousity....what I have to look forward to...

      Hiring Process

      Honestly, it really depends on your timing. Sometimes they are in a hurry to fill classes, and sometimes they are not. For me, it was only 4 months from the date I submitted the application to the date I recieved my conditional offer for employment, so they rushed me through pretty quick. The only reason they did it like that was because they were trying to put together 2 classes real fast. I started the academy right around 6 months after I submitted my app. The process is supposed to be shorter now, because they have several full time background investigators, so hopefully thats true.

                  Tell your references to return their letters as quickly as possible. The quicker they turn those in the quicker your background goes.

                    Supposedly, they sent them back within 2 days of getting them. At least, that's what I was told. Naturally they came running to me "hey I got a letter today" and I immediately 'FILL IT OUT!" lol. Of course there may be that one out there who just......didn't....for whatever reason........argh...

                      Update:

                      Interview went good. Got a conditional offer. Now just waiting for the final set of tests. BI said it was probably too late for the July class. Most likely will be in the Oct. class....

                        Congrats on the offer. Once out of the academy, if you ever work Hermitage sector (around the airport), send me a PM.

                          I recently took the written and agility test mid May and received my scores where it stated I passed. Is there anyone I can contact to see where my background check is at? SgtScott, I'm about 3 minutes away from the Hermitage precint and I wanted to know if you can choose the precint upon receiving a conditional offer?

                            To find out the status on your Background check you can contact the Background and Recruiting Section. If you check the website, they have the numbers and email address there. I wouldnt contact them unless its been over 3 months or so, because thats the normal amount of time its taking on BI's these days. As far assignment goes, you dont get to bid for the station you want until you get off probation and they have a re-bid. After you graduate the academy, you'll rotate to 3 different pcts with Field Training Officers, and then you'll do a final month with a FLEX team at a 4th Pct and thats normally where you'll stay. But they dont give you all that info right up front, you kinda just have to ride it out.
