  • Background Investigators...any advice?

    I'm currently in the midst of the hiring process for a (out ofstate) state police agency. I have passed the written, physical, hiring panel, polygraph and am in the middle of my BI. The investigator has come to the house, interviewed parents, work, friends, past employers, ex-girlfriends etc. This has been going on for three weeks now. The waiting process is torture though, as I really want this position. Generally, how long does this take and at this point (unless something terrible comes up) should I be prepared for an employment offer?

    A thorough background can take anywhere from 1 to 3 months. It would be premature to expect a CJO until you actually receive one. Unfortunately, anything can happen during a BG and you'd be surprised at what surfaces. Just hang tight until you hear from someone. It's a nail biter, but everyone goes through the same experience.

          Probably the most difficult part of the hiring process is the waiting. Nothing I can really say to make that any easier for you. Background Investigations have a way of being very thorough. That equates to time consuming. At the end of the day, you know, far better than any of us, if there are any issues in your past that could be a problem.

            Ha, it could take a long time,and as one person said it, you will be suprised at what will surface. My BI brought lots of stuff up that I had forgotten about. Just hang in there, if you made it to BI, you've at least got a foot in the door.
            You have the right to remain silent, but apparently you lack the skill to exercise that right.
