    But that is the only agency that I am aware of that does this routinely
    Man, that blows.

    For the others I'm in Idaho it's for tribal police and yes there is poly and psych
    Hopefully, what ever agency is hiring you takes a look at your response. Shows a lack of reasonableness and impulse control.

    Sometimes people hear what they want to hear rather than what they are being told.

    CptCav---gave you a POSSIBLE scenario that YOU DIDN"T HEAR CORRECTLY or that you misunderstood the process


    NO ONE HERE has been with the agency you obviously are in the process with because NO ONE HERE has ever heard of being given a start date when the background/testing process has not been complete.

    THE NORMAL process is to get a TENTATIVE OFFER of employment based to the completion of the remaining of the process.-------------------THAT uusally means there is a CHANCE of you not passing the remaining part of the process and NOT being offered the job permanently.


    NOW, I would suggest you get off your indignant high horse and refer to post #2



    Your reading comprehension is lacking then

    Some employers have you sign a conditional offer before they can do the medical/psych portions of the process.

    My .02 ... Did you receive a FINAL offer or a CONDITIONAL offer?

    Those are two very different things. While they aren't leaving much time between the completion of your processing and your start date, it is common to get a conditional offer pending further processing. If you haven't signed on the line, you probably got a conditional offer.

    Also Idaho is attend post within 1 year of hire date so there's no "class start date"

    What state are you in? Not all states require a polygraph, for instance, and even in those that do, failing one doesn't necessarily mean you're disqualified or won't be hired. Crazy things happen.

    Are you sure this particular agency HAS poly and psych?
